What is Deathloop about?
Deathloop is the battle between two time traveling assassins. You play Colt who is caught in a time warp and by it experienced the same day over and over again. He can use this ability to memorize the position of his opponents and thus get closer and closer to his goal. On the way, however, you will also meet Colt’s opponent Julianna, who can invade your time loop to thwart your plans
In the GIGA test, we rated Deathloop with 8.3 out of 10 points. The time warp scenario was convincing and so were they Special abilities allow a lot of variety. However, the quests take you by the hand a bit too much and the characters aren’t particularly engaging either.
