    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.

    As Arkane’s been acquired by Xbox, this is its first and last PS5 exclusive. But what better parting gift than a perfect day you could happily live again and again? [Issue#6, p.72]

    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.

    A concept that originally seems daunting, once you get into the central mechanic of Deathloop, it all makes sense. Be prepared to die again and again, remapping the same perpetual day out in a variety of different ways to hunt your targets. Arkane have refined their craft once more, delivering a densely packed world with so, so much to do. And as always, an insane variety in how to kill and look good doing it.

    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.

    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.

    All these negative scores comes from mainstream cod child players, or PS stupid fanboys hating on bethesda for being a microsoft's studio now.

    A competent and addicting game that missed the mark on fully captilising its roguelite nature and flawed multiplayer

    Bland, over advertised game. The weapons are kind of interesting but overall not worth your time.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Your character dies in the end regardless of what decisions you make. Game crashes non-stop on PC. Clunky controls and aim sensitivity maxed takes like a full 3 seconds to do a 360° spin. Will rate it a 4/10 when those are fixed, because this game still kinda sucks Expand
