This "stealth" game have one of the best first person combat systems, many cool fatal abilities, good combat animations. Why they bothered with it to much? It's just a waste of resources if player can't play that way.Dishonored is and always has been a stealth game. There are some combat options if you want to toy with that route, but it's clearly not where the most dev resources went, and that's fine. Not every game must perfectly cater to every playstyle.
