I tried Dishonored twice too. The first time I didn't get into it but the second time I got hooked and very much enjoyed it so Dishonored II is one to look out for. How good are Dishonored's expansion packs?
I wouldn't call them the same genre. Thief is a straight up stealth game. Combat is a last resort. Conversely, Dishonored is a hybrid stealth/action game. You can go pure stealth if you want but full action is equally viable.
As for Dishonored's DLC, they're great (Knife of Dunwall and Brigmore Witches, that is). Excellent level design, cool new weapons and enemies and more interesting backstory and lore. Definitely worth picking up both.
