The latest game from Arkane, the studio behind the excellent Dishonored
series, is as much a puzzle game as it is a slice of very cool action. Deathloop
makes its debut on PlayStation 5 and PC, and we've recently been living in its loop to bring you our full review.
Arkane’s Deathloop plays with the very form of choice and player freedom, its design an intricate collection of disparate pieces all working as a part of a greater whole. The complete opposite of a corridor shooter, it’s the sort of game you’d expect from the studio behind the excellent Dishonored series. Even so, it doesn’t mess with the outcome -- that being a great game to pick up and play.

Saying Deathloop plays with the form isn’t mere hyperbole. In much the same way great films defy comparison, or push their respective artform forward, Deathloop does so for the first-person shooter. By pairing the idea of ‘where to go’ and ‘how to approach’ with that of a deep underlying mystery, Deathloop is as dense a puzzle to solve as it is a combat playground to conquer.
