How's the game playing now? I bought it when it was released, because I love Dishonored, but bad reviews led me to put off playing it until some patches improve it.

I haven't heard much bad about it. The general consensus I've heard is that if you liked the first one, you'll like this one, too. Unless you mean bad reviews based strictly on performance. In which case, maybe they're pushing out an update that really tidies everything up and this free trial is a way for them to demonstrate to the public that "Hey! Our game works now! Take a look! Really!"

I never had any technical problems with the game at all but I think a lot of people did. The gameplay and level design are amazing.

For me the level design is pretty bland, it is very much a rinse a repeat for each mission clear first sector, then go into the the next and come back. Basically work out how to get past barrier 1 to get to area 2 and kill bad guy over and over again. Once you get the ability to 'Force Pull' enemies on to your blade it becomes extremely tedious to play.. Never had performance issues with the game, well that is until I stopped bothering with it.

I am also wondering this. The game is so good and has such high replay-ability. That I have already played it through multiple times as both emily and corvo but now I am bored and want some DLC.

I bought this game and I have not been able to play it. It is the buggiest, most unstable game since Batman. The game simply crashes, over and over again. I had the same issues on my Xeon and my old AMD 8-core (both running GTX-970's). Worthless.

I was running this game on ultra at 3440x1440 when it first came out and it was fine. The buggiest piece of crap I have played so far was deus ex MD. I could barely play it on medium when it first came out (No I did not enable MSAA which seemed to be the most frequent excuse used by fanboys and the devs). The problem is the console market is the focus with PC almost being an afterthought.

I got a refund for the last metal gear due to it being a terrible console port. Which I actually put in the request and steam refunded me. I did the same with another konami game. It's just lazy and shows how much game developers care.

I am about to play the new mass effect. It just needs to install a 1gig update. :) Apparently this game has stability issues as well.....how do I turn off notifications for this thread? :p

EDIT: I like the way origin gives me the option of downloading the update but the dialog text states that I can't play the game until I install the update. I hate mixed messages.
