Time is of the essence.
I spent like 250 hours playing DLC for monster train hence no review lately. I having hard to play any game that doesnt make my brain activity move around, hence shooter havent been my fav lately.
Deathloop is basically a game about time loop, where everytime you die the time revert back to the morning of the days. You also can move around toward 4 levels, which effectively give 16 different levels. This can changed based on sequence of event, which sometimes in order for you to access certain area, you need to do something earlier of the day. The gameplay is really fast face you moving from objective to objective, while trying to discover any potential lead / solution to break the loop.
While concept is awesome, it is nothing new. I already played like several game with time-loop mechanically and i will say that this game is probably one of the lazier implementation of it. Most of the outcome are just either-or, and you cant really create series of chain of events aside from final loop, which you already have knowledge from many previous loop you run. The AI in this game is atrocious, to a point I could just easily wait at the door and AI will do a congo line to your cross hair. All game mechanic are way too shallow for me, compared to Arkane Studios previous games.
I think this game didnt hit the potential. Despite strong aesthetic, voicework, world building, nothing be boring aside from running same level over and over again. No fun killing if your AI is just dumb brain. At least now I can move on to other games.
