Top Critic Average
In order to avoid the tedium organically produced by playing the same level over and over, Arkane has implemented a truly magical multiplayer component, one that has the potential to offer top-tier multiplayer moments. 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.
In that way, “Deathloop” is a big winking self-reference. It is not really a social space, even with (limited) multiplayer. It is not a shop, or a metaverse or a simulation. It is not film, and efforts to translate it to prestige TV would snuff out its red hot heart. It is not borne of a producer’s latent anxieties about games being kids’ table fare. It is a game with ambitions to be great at being a game, and mostly just that. It exists in a clear lineage of games. It includes games, and is about games. It is refreshing to participate in something that is so itself.
Hiding in plain sight using an upgraded Aether slab and surprising and invading Julianna with a swift machete stab she never saw coming.
With all this if you want to essentially challenge your creativity as a gamer, Deathloop reminds us why we love Arkane.

If you have the patience to put together the story you will find it quite appealing, the level design is as brilliant as ever, but on the other hand the maps are really small, and the combat system is half baked. Overall if you expect another Prey or Dishonored you will be disappointed, but if you are looking for an action game that is quirky and different you might have fun with it.
DEATHLOOP is a great game with a very well written story, expressive characters and an idea for the gameplay.

Deathloop is an amazing game where you have to breack the temporal loop. You will reset the same day after you get died, but, each time will be different. Getting some clues and information, you will be more preapred for the fight and to break the loop. This videogame has a wide range of options, so this way you can choose whatever you preffer based on your way of playing, that's really interesting. Break the loops and save your life, you can't miss Deathloop.

Deathloop is a good game that's just a little too afraid to fully take its hands off the wheel and let the player drive.
A thoughtful response to Dishonored that makes for an entertaining stealth shooter in its own right, but it's the multiplayer invasions that make Deathloop sing.
A brilliant timeloop shooter that gives Dishonored's best tricks and techniques more opportunity to shine.
