What have the critics said so far?

At the time of writing, DEATHLOOP had scored 'Generally favorable' reviews on Metacritic with an incredible 88 overall rating for the PC and PS5 versions of the game.

PCGamesN - A true tour de force from Arkane that is bound to be one of the year's best and most important games. 100/100

GameByte - Deathloop... offers some fantastically unique features that properly elevate the experience in new and creative ways. 100/100

Deathloop encases fun investigation work and satisfying combat in a unique time loop mechanic to create a tremendously satisfying adventure. 100/100

Telegraph - The action is a pleasure, while its main drive has you constantly picking up pieces of an unknown puzzle that are pieced together in separate chunks, before the frisson of excitement when the full picture starts to form. What’s extraordinary is how Arkane make it seem so easy. Blockbuster game-making at its smartest and most essential. 100/100

Twinfinte - Deathloop is still signature Arkane in terms of exemplary immersive-sim design, reminiscent of BioShock and Dishonored, but it also puts a giant smile on your face each and every time you play. 90/100 - Deathloop is an intelligent, beautiful, singular and well-written adventure not to miss. 80/100 - Comfortable in the exercise of style imposed by the time loop, the artists of Arkane signed with Deathloop a very good FPS that is as interesting as it is wacky. 80/100
