Raptr Reviews: Dishonored, Borderlands 2, XCOM
We asked and you delivered! For most gamers on a budget, buying a game usually depends on the latest reviews. With Raptr’s Reviews, we’re bringing the opinions of gamers like you to you! Read what our Raptr community has to say about a few of the latest holiday titles and decide which game is worth your precious golden coins.

Dishonored
FanboyHunter exclaims that “Dishonored is a fresh take on the action stealth genre. The beautiful thing about Dishonored is that it conforms to your playstyle. Want a pure stealth game? You can climb, teleport, and sneak around while incapacitating anyone who gets in your way. Want an action game? Pull out your sword and pistol, use your magical powers and slaughter your way through all who stand in your way!” In Dishonored, nothing is impossible when it comes to disposing of your foes.

Raptr community member masofdas says that Dishonored is a “great game, which unfortunately doesn’t reach 5 stars due to the length.” Feel free to insert all your dirty jokes in the comments.

Borderlands 2
I wub, wub, wub Borderlands 2 and so does Stoical Ronin, who says that it “takes everything from the first game and turns it up to 11!! “

Raff Tiger agrees, stating, “If you loved Borderlands 1 there’s more to love in Borderlands 2. Lots of small but significant tweaks to the mechanics make this a much more polished and enjoyable experience.”

We at Raptr, enjoy what you have to say so keep the Dishonored and Borderlands 2 reviews coming! Likewise, we’re still looking for some XCOM: Enemy Unknown reviews so make sure to drop by and share your thoughts. Who knows; your review may very well be featured in next week’s This Week in Raptr!
