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.

This feels like a game i would pick up from gamestop as a child, it's crisp and polished and I can't help wanting to pick it back up shortly after i put it down, Well Done Arkane you truely have outdone yourselves Expand

The negative reviews here are disgusting, obvious review bombs and should be tossed out as they are not legitimate. Guaranteed, no one who's played this game gives it a genuine rating less than 8, and that's a stretch.

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

Gøy nesten hele tiden! Jeg likte veldig godt variasjonen på våpnene og de ulike kreftene en kunne få. Eneste jeg har å pirke på er at det var litt for ofte at Julianna kom som gjorde at det ikke ble spennende nok. Det tar også litt for lang tid å bli med i andres spill som Julianne. I tillegg syntes jeg storyen sluttet bitte litt for brått. Ellers var historien fantastisk og veldig givende. Expand

    The good:

    -Promising premise for a time loop game that incentive creativeness for different ways to tackle and approach your goals.
    The good:

    -Promising premise for a time loop game that incentive creativeness for different ways to tackle and approach your goals.

    -Interesting characters and well-constructed dialogues.

    -Fun and creative mini-games, puzzles, and side-missions along the campaign are a great way to differ from the repetitive mainline goals.

    -Multiplayer is a good addition to the game and matches well with the theme.

    The bad:

    -outdated visuals;

    -story lacks excitement, it never really grows on you throughout the playthrough.

    -On top of being a time-loop game that assumes you're going to repeat things a lot, there are also missions that require you to do repetitive actions that get boring more than often.

    -Occasional bugs that simply crash the game after you pause to check on your mission details are annoying especially after 40 minutes plus missions.

    -Lackluster soundtrack, with only two or three music that repeats itself all the time (I guess that's also part of the looping thing?).

    Played around 5-6 hours, killed few Visionaries, and I can tell: It's the worst Arkane game up to date.

    Played around 5-6 hours, killed few Visionaries, and I can tell: It's the worst Arkane game up to date.
    After great Prey (2017) and awesome Dishonored dilogy Deathloop feels repetative, irritating due to loop concept, annoying due to using same locations every time and boring due to broken shooting mechanic. I don't know what they did to shooting but it feels worse than in Dishonored 2. Aggressive play style is not acceptable: It's not fun at all, especially when your weapon jams and you're surrounded. The cost of mistake is high: you can die 2 times and next you'll get - a reset of your loot and progress. It irritates the most, as well as due to the plot-driven loot reset. The design and music are great, the story idea too, but...
    You'll get fast annoyed on third loop reset by same game locations. There is no story progress feeling: like a hamster, you run around and around in same parts of island, gathering loot and chasing targets like a dog.
