Rich in detail and brilliantly designed, Deathloop brings new life into a familiar story trope. It's polished game mechanics help Deathloop remain intriguing and challenging at all times, which makes it a paramount addition to the new PS5 game library.
This might be my favorite Arkane Studios game to date. The gameplay, music, and the way you keep finding more clues to progress in the story really has me hooked. I loved that they implemented gyro controls for the dual sense. This is a 'must buy' if you are into Dishonored. No doubt looking forward to more stealth games by Arkane.
Deathloop is one of the most innovative games from a major publisher that I’ve ever played, using the time loop mechanic to fantastic effect. With lots of clever puzzles and engaging combat, as well as a genius multiplayer element, this is one of the best games of 2021 yet.
If you've been waiting for the PlayStation 5's first true killer app, this is it. Deathloop is an innovative and satisfying take on the shooter genre that you can't afford to miss. Developer Arkane Studios has managed to take Dishonored's rock-solid foundation and hone it to a razor's edge. With a rewarding progression system and a gameplay loop that encourages experimentation and exploration, you can't help but wonder why Colt would ever want to break this cycle. Sprawling, cerebral, and consistently exciting, Deathloop deserves a spot in every shooter fan's PS5 library.
A rich and diversified gameplay is at the heart of Deathloop, the like Arkane is known for, but the studio, or Bethesda is too shy of letting the player explore by himself et ruin the pleasure of exploration. Also, the invasion mechanism is a little too... invasive.
Deathloop is in a weird spot. It isn't as good as Dishonored, but I also don't expect to see another game in the series. If you want to support the studio or need a Dishonored fix, this will help...but honestly, the game isn't that fun.
Imagine you take Dishonored, and combine it into one whole journey with really great time looping abilities and it is a masterpiece that was a former PS5 exclusive. Gameplay was on point, graphics was beautiful, the story is complicated but fun, and overall it is my favorite game of 2021, my favorite Arkane game next to Dishonored and 2017’s Prey and this is a game where I pretend that Redfall didn’t exist.
Deathloop starts out extremely fascinating. The first 5-7 play hours are fun and intriguing with new information and details.
Unfortunately, the further we move, the more the game fades into repetitious loops, where in a full circle we learn only one new code combination or find only one new plot note. We hear only a couple of new dialogues that shed light on what is happening, and everything around us becomes increasingly more and more boring and tedious.
If the game had been a quarter or even a third smaller, it would have benefited from it. In its current form, it really lacks story, dialogues, cutscenes, plot details and unique action to justify its size.
The game ending itself is reminiscent of a mediocre mystery movie, the most interesting part of which was the trailer and the movie beginning, but all the good fall apart way before the credits roll.
Eh. Game is fine. Gameplay loop is solid but that’s about all it has. Somewhat interesting setting and premise but not executed well. Visual design is good. Colt is a cool character. But everything is mediocre to just decent. Reviewers gassed it up too much
I am not the type of guy who doesn't finish games but this one I just couldn't. After progressing long enough I had no energy to continue on. The combat is unbalanced AI is dumb and there is no risk factor other than the raid the antagonist does.
