Already picked up the game and Knife of Dunwall for relatively cheap, haven't played the DLC yet tho. Ah well, GOTY would have been nice but I don't feel at all bad about paying a bit more.

Knife of Dunwall is definitely worth it. Haven't played the latest DLC yet, but I'm waiting for a good sale to get it.

Brigmore Witches is excellent but it won't make sense without Knife Of Dunwall so yes, grab them both. They're both great but Brigmore makes so much more of Dishonored than you'd expect and some of the environmental work is stunning.There's no manifesto. There's no formal plan.

I've only played Knife, but: Do you like Dishonored? The DLC is more Dishonored. Is this not excellent news? Though, as far as Knife goes, it's a less epic Dishonored, with less gravitas, slightly blander design, and no hub level.
Knife's three very large levels (and it does feel more like a level pack than an expanded narrative) that are very much Dishonored missions mechanically, but never reach the heights of the base game in terms of art design or atmosphere, in my opinion. The main game just keeps doubling down on the pathos and architectural excess in a way that KoD doesn't seem to quite aspire to. Sounds like I'm panning it, but I'm not. It's solid. It's three more Dishonored missions, no more, no less. Stealth or slaughter, it's all there, just be aware they already poured most of the soul into the main game. (Though as a partial trade off, Daud's blink power is better than Corvo's - stopping time and changing direction midair is pretty great).
Put it this way: I don't regret paying full price for Knife at all, and Brigmore looks to have a lot more life in it from what I've seen, but I'm still waiting on a discount.

I haven't played the DLC yet, but Dishonored's the first game in ages that I immediately replayed after finishing it. It really is almost like two different games if you do one stealth pacifist play through and one Rambo kill everyone play through.
I wasn't terribly enamored with the plot (which is bare bones) or the main character (who's kind of boring), but the setting and world are awesome and the gameplay itself is interesting enough to hold your interest on its own.
My one major complaint about the game is that stealth is a bit flat and too simplistic. In my stealth play through after a couple levels I really found myself missing "Thief's" light/dark and "sound" stealth systems. Playing with light and shadow and snuffing out torches to keep out of sight added a whole layer to the gameplay of Thief that Dishonored sadly lacks. Likewise, noise doesn't really factor into Dishonored's stealth much, which again is part of what made Thief so awesome (i.e. in Thief every surface made a certain level of noise depending on what material it was made of, so you had to plan your movements based on the surfaces in front of you). But none of this ruined the game for me or anything, it just would have spiced up the gameplay a bit if they had implemented that type of stuff.

I am just experiencing the game for the first time vicariously through watching my wife play it. To watch here play it it feels like Bioshock, she kicks down the door and murders everyone as a whirling dervish of death. She's essentially playing as Liam Neeson in Taken.

You can kick down doors in Dishonored?

You should be able to, the kick button in Dark Messiah was it's best feature. They should sell kick DLC.

I completed dishonored the same way,its a shame playing stealthy because its very basic compared to rambo style :D... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.
