    It's a rare, but fantastic thing to find a game that feels like the result of a singular artistic vision. To find one that also happens to be a genuinely comic vision is like tripping over a unicorn. Playing Jazzpunk, from developer Necrophone Games, was like tripping over a unicorn who just happened to share my particular appreciations for goofy puns, technological ephemera, and Saul Bass.

    This game made me laugh - not gently or under duress of slow realisation, but in staccato outbursts which alarmed and unsettled passers-by.

    It is probably too short, but if you take your time and explore, you will find a great adventure, full of laughter and surprises.

    What's here is undoubtedly high quality, but some may find themselves just wanting more of the game. It's a blessing and a curse.

    The replay value is low, but it’s a nice distraction while it lasts.

    Quirky humor and an abundance of outrageous antics keep things buoyant through much of the short but flawed journey. Jazzpunk is an enthusiastic attempt to answer the question of just how much weirdness you can possibly cram into a few hours of gaming. In that endeavor, at least, it's a great achievement.

    Jazzpunk is an equivalent of an avant-garde show – it doesn’t have a story or even a point to it. It’s nothing more than a collection of rejected ideas.

    This game isn't about the graphics, the style, the "Next Gen Game play". It's about how you play the game.
    All together, this game should never be taken seriously. This game is humorous, funny, and hilarious. There's no real definition for this game. But if you get a chance to buy it, you will find out what I am talking about.

Imagine you are JamesBond[Jazzpunk - Steam PC - 8] 3D shooter with the unusual element of linearity and the non-sense of Quentin Tarantino. Imagine you are JamesBond and You are rendered with Digital KleenexBoxes. Komplete your missions and earn the respect of SteamAchievements - but you will receive no recognition except from Butters because he is our Friend. And you Fart. Complete each mission.. Short 9 hrs. S*ck me. Quests but no RPG elements. Cat litterbox gameplay with side missions that are optional. Hit Button to Laugh. Ha ha haaaa…. Ha Ha Ha Haaaaa.... Comedians that laugh at themselves are not elves. Get this (on sale).

    [ToYou]
    My compliments to all of you who pursue and share this obsession to experience this modern digital art. There are many games that will not be playable in 15-20 years because of OS and hardware changes. The time is now to experience these achievements. Think about going to museums and looking at those Van Gogh paintings already 150 years old today. Think about watching reruns of old TV programs anytime you want. This will not be possible for most games and digital art dependent on game engines - so consume and enjoy now and appreciate the moment.

    Jazzpunk is a game that is aimed at a very niche audience, luckily if you are part of its target audience you will have a blast.
    Its a traditional adventure game, you go round environments collecting items to solve puzzles and progress, no combat or any other gameplay mechanics, just puzzle solving.
    Its story is hard to pin down and that's one of the games biggest shortfalls, its a parody of every spy film ever made and though very funny does begin to lose steam very quickly and thus ends as a silent wet fart rather than something actually hilarious. But the two hour experience is very entertaining, despite the humour becoming desensitising due to its constant in your face nature.
    Jazzpunk is a game made up of pointing at things, putting a gun to your head to force you to laugh and then assaulting your eyes with a vibrant visual style. This does compliment the experience, but it also hinders it at times.
    In short, there is nothing fundamentally bad about Jazzpunk, I cant think of any real way to improve it, however its not perfect. But if you're looking for a short & funny experience, then Jazzpunk is the game for you.

    Fun, crazy, disturbing, what? and there's some sort of plot too, but you're not a spy enough to get it.

    Not a masterpiece, not actually even a good game, but I can't say I didn't enjoy playing it and the "WTF?" moments you get from this are truly unique in their own unique way.
