Deathloop Review



Arkane Lyon’s follow-up to Dishonored is a masterclass in open-ended action game design. It’s a game where observation and dynamic thinking go hand-in-hand with shotgunning goons in the face and snapping their necks; where throwing a grenade into a soiree for sycophants counts as the right kind…

  1. I feel that the progression of Arkane games trend towards iteration rather than re-invention (taking the same game pieces and trying them out in different combos/locales).

  2. Too damn difficult, that's it. Period. We should be honest with ourselves, rather than celebrating any new game as a true masterpiece just because it looks good at first glance. Deathloop is undoubtedly well made and sexy-looking, but after a few hours it gets extremely frustrating, with no real progress, no end of the story in sight. Something devised and long awaited as a relaxing and entertaining videogames, has abruptedly turned into a real nightmare impossible to enjoy. Too bad.

  3. "both characters are realized exceptionally well". I could not disagree more. The two main characters in this game are among the most childish, flat, senseless characters I've ever experienced in a computer game.
