DISHONORED is a fantasy action game in which you play a man who is accused of murdering a kingdom's beloved Empress. It was rated 18 for strong bloody violence.

During normal gameplay there is frequent strong bloody violence, including sight of blood spurts when characters are shot with a variety of short and long range weapons. Using stealth allows the player to sneak up on enemies unaware, with sight of a sword plunging into the necks of the victims with accompanying blood sprays, seen from the first-person perspective. A 'Kill Cam' is also engaged on occasion with more of a focus on the finishing blow, which may include the decapitation of the victim. When incendiary bolts are used as weapons against enemies, the victims scream and are immolated, while grenades are able to explode enemies into bloody chunks of torsos and limbs. It is also possible to kill innocent characters, including women.

There are numerous uses of strong language by characters encounter during the game, some of which are aggressive. There is also some milder bad language, including uses of 'shit', 'balls', 'whores, 'ass' and 'bastard'.

One level in the game is set in a brothel and this includes sight of scantily clad women. There is also a sequence in which the player encounters a character sitting in an electric shock device. The character apparently derives some pleasure from the shocks, which the player is able to administer during interrogation.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated game, video or DVD.
