    Get busy unlocking new powers, blinking in behind bad guys, stabbing and shooting and skulking around, scouring environments for clues, choosing which lead to follow next as you push and pull and probe every corner, every wrinkle of this labyrinthian puzzle box. And it's on Game Pass too? You're spoiling us, Microsoft.

    Deathloop is a brilliant and unique game. It feels like a product where Arkane has used all of their learning and added to their talent to make wonderful games. There are many aspects that we can highlight: the story, the dialogues and the universe they have created are mixed with a fun gameplay, a great performance and a quite impressive level design. The game's multiplayer mode was the one I enjoyed the least but it's an option that some will be able to take better advantage of.

    Deathloop is the best game Arkane has ever made, which is saying something. It is a brilliant culmination of their learnings over the years, and I absolutely love it. World-class writing, world-building, and story are matched with fun gameplay, great performance, and one of the smartest game worlds I’ve ever seen.

    Yet another elegantly composed and impeccably designed Arkane sandbox, Deathloop is an intricate murder puzzle that’s part-Hitman, part-roguelite, and entirely sensational. There are few better ways to kill time.

    Deathloop is yet another confirmation of Arkane Lyon's unbridled creative talent. It captures us from the very first moments thanks to an intriguing premise and keeps us glued to the pad until the end credits with a constantly evolving gameplay, enhanced by a unique styling and a basically perfect level design. Enemy AI and the shooting system could have been better, but regardless of these limitations it's a game absolutely worth trying.

    Arkane Studios' shooter is finally available on Xbox Series consoles with a large new update, but it's still very much the same middling experience.

Os gráficos e a gameplay fluída estão maravilhosos. Exige uma certa paciência para zerar. Não é um jogo para apressados, exige calma para entender como o loop funciona. Jogaço! Jóia rara, só jogue!

I've never experienced something so fresh in gaming. The "loop" made me hesitant as it just seemed like it would be a repetitive game, which it is to an extent, but no more than any other rogue like title. The graphic style is fantastic and a perfect fit. The dialogue is original and interesting, and not over done like so many. The gunplay feels great, not quite iD great, but still quite good and well suited to the speed of the gameplay. Highly recommend! Expand

The setting is pretty awesome and creative, and you will love how every character is written and acted. Now there could've have been more maps, but thing is these maps are far from empty! Every nook and cranny has something to offer and they dont get old. You'll always find new passages and open new doors.

    It sure is a title to at least try out!

I really tried to like it and keep playing it, but after about 8-9 hours I surrendered, because, for me, it did not feel fun at all. Maybe with a linear story and no sandbox and it would have been better/ I would enjoy it more.

    I played on Series X and it runs great.
