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.

Occasionally obtuse and slow, Disco Elysium excels at delivering one of the best role-playing game experiences in a very long time with exceptional writing, world building and mechanical immersion

The thing about Disco Elysium is that my experience of it is completely unique to me, such is the dizzying variety of skills, stats, thoughts, and conversation options on offer. You could play through it five times and still not see everything, so there's no one experience to assess. But I can say with certainty that it's one of the finest RPGs on PC if you value depth, freedom, customisation, and storytelling.

Disco Elysium is a landmark title in gaming that will hopefully set a new standard for quality game design and writing. Everything offered within feels like a work borne from passion and talent, but that latter part's what has me worried. I would love for Disco Elysium to somehow plant a flag that boldly proclaims, "Here! THIS is what we need to be doing and THIS is how you do it!" Even if a developer understands the "passion" part of the equation and puts in the time and resources, that doesn't always mean they have a talent for this caliber of game.
