Disco Elysium -Gameplay

Disco Elysium-Review

Disco Elysium. I played this game for 16 hours and completed it. That’s not 16 hours in bursts; that’s 16 straight hours. I picked this game up and I could not put it down. I didn’t sleep, I barely ate, until I’d finished it. Very, very few games have ever seized me like this one did.

This game is simply incredible. It’s amazingly engaging, it tells a fantastic story and it’s simply unlike anything else I have ever played. It’s got that Eastern European cynicism, but then blindsides you with moments of stunning emotion that slip under your guard like a knife in the ribs. If you enjoy experiencing a truly unique world in a way you’ve never done before, this game is for you. If you want a game that’s thoughtful and exception, this game is for you. This is a triumphant experience and I recommend it to anyone who wants to be utterly engaged and absorbed by their entertainment.

An expanse, intricate world, with existential trippy features/conversations/contexts. Wide range of options of how and what to play, can’t imagine how much work was put into writing all that. It is basically impossible to see everything in the game – choices are countless and outcomes often unique in terms of what further choices you would get. It’s a web impossible to untagle as a player – just play through as you feel and have it as an experience. If you get tired of it at some point, better to take a day or two off than to rush it with not enough patience. You can miss things and never even find out you did.
Everyone seems to have done a remarkable job as no part is bad – you might still be a bigger fan of one aspect than of another, but that is the beauty of the complexity of the game.

Weirdly engaging. It’s a good game but it will not be for everyone.

You will spend 90% of the time reading text, there’s no traditional combat (which is great because I find cRPG combat tedious and often slow), and the last 10% is clicking to move/interact. So don’t even bother if that’s not something you can deal with. There is some voice acting but it is pretty cringey.

The skill system and “inner dialogue” is something special, a unique take on the typical RPG style that plays out so well within the game’s theme. It is what kept me playing through to the end.

The story itself I wouldn’t call amazing thinking back on it, but in the moment you are intrigued to find out more.
