DEATHLOOP

Finished Deathloop today. 

Such Rogue-lite.
Much Arkane-lite.

 

Very fun and unique gaming experience. Hats off to Arkane Studio for keep inventing new cool gameplay stuffs In every new IP. Although the enemy AI is stupid, doesn't hamper the overall experience as the player invasion keeps the game fanatic. And vice-versa when you invade other's game as well. The cat and mouse gameplay may sound unimpressive, but it's much more satisfying in game.


Plus, the 60's psychedelic theme keeps reminding me of No One Lives Forever 1/2. And that's bring nothing but joy in my mind.
 

Highly recommended. Could be a strong contender for GOTY 2021.


PS: Installed Dishonored 2 again, I would love to replay that after this.

Loved this game until...you realize that there is only one way to kill all the visionaries. That if you basically do the questlines, the game will handhold you to reach the end and that is the only way to play or finish it. 

Going in I thought there would be multiple ways to kill them, mix and match to bring them together for the perfect loop. It's pretty deflating. And since the game is never really difficult, the puzzle solving was the main draw after a while. There were infact more ways to kill in Dishonor than over here. 

The game needed a secret ending, where you can somehow bring everyone to the party or open them up in different areas of the game.  Still a solid 8/10.

This is kinda the feeling I was getting the more I was playing the game, but I was holding my judgement until I actually finished it (I haven't yet).

The game presents you a puzzle, but you're meant only to collect the pieces of this puzzle. The actual puzzle solving is done by the game itself, and that's a little disappointing.

 

And before anyone gets confused, there are multiple ways to kill visionaries (at least some of them AFAIK). But it looks like there is only one way to kill them for the perfect loop, and the game pretty much spells that out for you.

So GTS replied and apparently Bethesda didn't give any pre-order bonuses for the physical PS5 edition. :wallbash:

So I reached out to Bethesda and they added the pre-order bonuses to my account. Can see and equip them now. Strange that had to take this indirect way for the pre-order bonuses. :eyebrow:

I agree. The handholding is too much and even if you go your own way the way to finish, the game has a fixed path already. I was expecting different results/impact but nope. Everything is fixed for a perfect loop. 

 

Still a very enjoyable game. Probably my fav one this year so far.
