Deathloop - The Final Preview

    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.

    Mixing stealth, weighty gunplay, supernatural powers, and play-your-way weapons and gadgets, Deathloop is a greatest-hits amalgam of Arkane style with a splash of grindhouse grittiness and a satisfying murder puzzle narrative to put it apart from anything that has come before.

    Deathloop is Arkane at its best, combining its system-driven immersive-sim gameplay with a unique and fascinating story set-up. Excellent presentation and style, along with fantastic dialogue and character performances makes Deathloop one of the most innovative games in years and a valuable PS5 exclusive.

    Deathloop is an engaging and enjoyable game that manages to capture the feel of Dishonored in a more fast-paced adventure. The unique setting and engaging concept carry the game through the repetitive nature of the gameplay. The multiplayer at the center of the story is more of a mixed bag but still intriguing enough to be memorable. Some annoying bugs drag down the experience. If you liked Dishonored but wished it were less about stealth and more about blowing things up, then Deathloop is the game for you. Just be prepared to die again and again.

    Deathloop offers a fun, time bending romp. The story is intriguing and the characters, butterfly effects and abilities are the strong points only hampered by a lot of repetition and the odd technical hitch.

    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.

    Big fan of the Dishonored series and Arkane has done a great job making something similar, yet with new and engaging mechanics. Having a blast so far!

    Awesome game! Very unique if you like the Hitman/Dishonored games and detective stories with sci-fi elements you will love this game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. (7/10) I'd like to clarify that I went into this with a year's worth of excitement and anticipation for the game. I got it on release day and it took me until today to beat it. Not because it's long, but because I got bored and annoyed with it. The opening hours are boring, the closing hours are climactic, but not great, and the ending I got was dreadful. It's a real shame the game is so monotonous because it really looks great, and I love the concepts with regards to gunplay and the like, but I found there weren't enough good guns in the game that you could use anywhere, so I tended to just use melee. I'd recommend it when it gets cheap. £60 is an incredibly high price for what you get in my opinion. That said, I can't wait for any DLC or future games from arkane. Expand

Playing the same maps feels like its set up for multilayer only. I think the user score 5-6 is about right. Expand

    Basically HITMAN "find target" mechanic with some Dishonored gun feeling.
    Pretty bad. I'd give it a 4 but i wanna lower this to 0 so people

    Pretty bad. I'd give it a 4 but i wanna lower this to 0 so people bombing it to 10 stop fanboying over a game that adds nothing new to the table since hitman already did it.
