    Deathloop is not only one of the most conceptually ambitious and well executed games ever made, but Arkane's PlayStation swansong also has a boundless energy and ingenuity that no other game can match. Quite simply, Deathloop is an unparalleled synergy of first-person shooter design, explorative bliss and narrative complexity that we likely won't see again for a very, very long time.

    Deathloop is one of the best games of the year — at least from what I’ve played so far. And I say that as someone who has previously recognized the quality of Arkane games while struggling to enjoy them. But with this game, French team Arkane Lyon used some smart tricks to amplify its strengths. And the result is a special experience that has broader appeal than some other Arkane projects.

    We've played the concept of "eternal return" in video games for decades, but Deathloop gives it a unique twist and turns it into a central part of its mechanics and plot. Repeating their trusted and tried formula, Arkane Studios improved on it until Deathloop came to be; and while not perfect, it's only a few loops away from it.

    Deathloop is another proof that Arkane knows its immersive sim stuff. Despite the disappointing AI and some serious PC port issues, it still is one of the most fun experiences you can afford yourself this year and a breath of fresh air in the industry.
  5. Deathloop is not only this year, but one of the most original and different productions we have come across recently. It is really enjoyable to see the map in different ways at different times of the day and to try to complete this big puzzle with the clues you find.

    Unfortunately, the weak recon missions made too easy by the lack of challenge from AI enemies, the small number of maps that are quickly mastered, and the limited variety in gameplay burdened by uninspired upgrades, ultimately prevent Deathloop from reaching the highest of highs. With online multiplayer enabled and embraced, however, it becomes easier to overlook the weak points and Deathloop comes out on the other side as a compelling lesson in how intimate multiplayer can greatly enhance the single-player formula.

    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.

TheOne of the most interesting and exciting games I’ve played in years. The invasion aspect is great, the level design is amazing as usual. The story and voice acting is fun and goofy. Love everything about it. Arkane have gone and done it again. For my money the best in the AAA business. Expand
