CVG judges say...
Dan Dawkins, PSM3/Xbox World editor: Dishonored, though it's less of a shooter, than a first-person assassination game where you get to play as a rat. Cribbing elements from Half Life 2, Hitman, Assassin's Creed and BioShock, Bethesda's stunning, artistically assured, adventure looks most likely to benefit from BioShock Infinite's slippage into 2013.
Tim Clark, Future games senior editor: If you're going to borrow, it might as well be from the best, and Dishonored's DNA contains strands of some of the most creative action experiences of this generation. And for a game about a plague, boy did it feel fresh compared to a lot of the stuff on the E3 show floor.
