Disco Elysium is a funny game, and I mean that in the best way possible. Wildly entertaining and stylish, it appealed to me as someone who enjoys introspective metanarrative, cosmic horror, and self-deprecating humor. My favorite aspect of the game is how its mechanics inform so much of the world. I loved the flavor text of my abilities, my wardrobe, and my thought chamber almost as much as the writing and dialogue of the main story itself. HDB is a fun character to play and I enjoyed tailoring my playstyle with his ridiculous personality.



The game is very pretty - not just in the gritty art style, but the intelligent user interface. I never felt overwhelmed.



Spoilers ahead... while it can admittedly get clunky and slow in the investigation phase, you never really get lost and the puzzles are satisfying enough. It also gets you into heart-racing moments - the mercenary tribunal stands out to me as one of my favorite moments in video games.



Following the keys and getting to the heart of the mystery was fun because uncovering characters and locations made Martinaise come to life. As a whodunit, I didn't like the conclusion of the mystery but was sufficient to give the story a neat and satisfying close.



CRPG fans are already wild about this title, and it does feel like a fresh take on a genre that's largely disappeared. The world and its lore are pretty tight and easy to get into if you're prepared to play a game with a lot of reading. Overall, its style and mythos are so rich and charming (and distinctly Estonian), you'll surely enjoy something about the experience.

I never played anything of such genre . This was my first and it was a hell of a start

Disco Elysium is worth all the praises it's receiving. It's not another run-off-the-mill open-world RPG. It still classifies as one but it strays with the basic tropes found in the genre. First, it's not set in another fantasy-esque world. You don't level up your strength, dexterity, etc. You just wake up and you're free to roam and discover the people and intrigues. You even have to figure out most of the mechanics by yourself. You're basically thrust into the chaos without the usual hand-holding. Second, character building is different and how you level-up unlocks certain paths. Third, the writing is EXCELLENT -- funny, entertaining, political, philosophical, and more.



I could have easily given this a 10/10. It comes down to personal taste and I'm not a big fan of the game's visual. Not the artstyle, it's just that the sense of depth is lacking between storeys and can be disorienting.



If you're looking to explore a new implementation of "open-world RPG", you definitely have to give Disco Elysium a try.

Disco Elysium deserves applause for having a singular vision and generally bringing it to fruition through its art, writing, setting, characters and gameplay mechanics which suggest the heyday of classic isometric RPGs. At the same time, it can feel joyless and self-consciously weighted down by its bleak vision of the world, despite a steady drip of cynical, eccentric humor. Disco Elysium was perhaps the best example in years of a game that I appreciated but didn’t much enjoy.

There is no denying Disco Elysium is a game that needs to be played to be believed. It is frankly a refreshing take on detective-based RPG’s, and despite some unnecessary writing beats and a buried narrative surrounded by unique distractions, the oddball charm of Disco Elysium makes it one of the most refreshing role-playing experiences in years. If nothing else, Disco Elysium is a must for role-playing aficionados worldwide to really sink their teeth into.

Disco Elysium is a wonderfully written RPG that defies preconceptions of what RPGs can be. Whether or not it somehow marks its own paradigm shift or inspires a new sub-genre remains to be seen, but for now, I encourage anyone who wants to experience some of the best game writing on offer to give it a try.
