The answer to it is simple – players kill in order to break that very time loop, and in the process of passing, the growth of the hero is constantly felt and the confidence that the goal is still there.

The technical part of the game, connected with the mechanics of battles, was called “deconstruction” of the studio’s own style – all tasks seem to be simple, but gradually the project begins to push the user towards realizing how everything actually works here.

However, not everyone liked this simplicity:

Not exactly a flop, but while the time-loop action is fun, much of it, unfortunately, is wasted on simple tasks and a surprisingly low-key image of uncontrollable hedonism.

Deathloop is in a strange position. It’s not as good as Dishonored, but I’m not looking forward to seeing a new installment in this series.

A great time-loop shooter where Dishonored’s best tricks and techniques can shine.
