    If you’re worried that Disco Elysium might be too slow for you, you’re probably right. It’s a visual novel through and through, where 90% of the gameplay is reading. It doesn’t skip any big issues, it doesn’t mind reminding you about the human condition, right after making you giggle uncontrollably; it wants you to be engaged, intoxicated, and uncomfortable. If you value engaging writing and exceptionally gorgeous graphics over a fast paced RPG, Disco Elysium is an adventure absolutely worth investing in.

    With full voice acting of over one million enrapturing lines of dialogue, new quests, and an undeniable painterly look, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is a landmark RPG. Boasting an excellent murder mystery, it also challenges the player in deconstructing a broken socio-political system and interacting with its inhabitants. The game then slowly unravels itself a dense meditation on the human condition, made possible by your dialogue choices and their consequences. What’s more, most bugs are now fixed, making the PS4 port a near-enough perfect platform for playing this near-perfect game.

    Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is everything the 2019 classic was and more. If you’re a fan of the original, you need to double-dip to experience the incredible work this cast of voice actors has put together. If you’ve never heard of Disco Elysium before, I envy you. I wish I could play this again for the first time. Be warned that you may run into a few bugs here and there, but it seems like every other day, ZA/UM is squashing more of them. And if you’re still here reading this review, it’s time to turn the world off and put your dancing shoes on.

    Despite my occasional narrative discomforts and technical gripes, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is absolutely essential material. This is a game that will stir the mind with masterful prose in one moment and have you gasping on the edge of your seat from the crucial roll of a cube in the very next. Disco Elysium will split your heart open with tectonic ferocity and leave you demanding more games exhibit the positively shameless amount of grace and humor that peppers every minute of this cerebral adventure.

    Disco Elysium The final Cut is a good port of a masterpiece, and as such, it's highly recommended to RPG fans and to whoever thinks videogaming is more than shooting and fighting.

    Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is a problematic port of a wonderful game, where technical problems are balanced by the magnificent and long awaited full voice acting.

    Genre remixes often get lost in good intentions, but Disco Elysium pulls it off just fine. The dialogues fit perfectly with the visual style that portrays a world as captivating as it is gloomy. All top notch, but still we'll stick with three stars. Why? Because the console version we tested was plagued by bugs that sometimes even made it impossible to progress further.

    Best writing in any video game ever.
    It's special because it's not just a game. It's not just a graphic novel. It's a combination that transcends both.
    The characters will stay with you forever. The stories are intriguing. The main mystery is much more complicated than it initially seems. The graphics are simple but stylish; good enough to make the game even more distinguishable than anything else.
    But, oh my God, the writing. The quality is unparalleled. The depth in the writing is though-provoking. It gets into politics, religion, sex, ideologies, philosophy. But you only get into these things if you choose to do so. If not, you'll still find incredibly realized characters and a murder mystery to die for (no pun intended).
    The final cut has excellent voice acting too, which further elevates this masterful experience.
    There are some bugs and it crashed once in my entire playthrough, but honestly, these faults are not enough to make me deduce a point from my rating. Maybe 9.5/10 is a better score, but once they fix the issues, it's a 10/10. It's truly unforgettable.

    I recently finished Uncharted 4 and really enjoyed its over-the-top and unrealistic action. So much fun. You know what else is fun? PlayingI recently finished Uncharted 4 and really enjoyed its over-the-top and unrealistic action. So much fun. You know what else is fun? Playing an RPG as a cop who really isn't the hero of the game. The heroes are the people you talk to while investigating a murder. And there's a lot of talking. And a lot of reading. And very little action. Just chill for a while. Start by talking about the mundane, continue talking about the case and throw in a bit of existentialism. I don't think this game is trying to be pseudo-intelligent. You're in a run down place talking to what seems like run down people. But if we did that in real life (running around talking to strangers), I think we would find that people would have some real important things to talk about. They may not be as important to us, but it's important to them and they this is their opportunity to give their thoughts some life. They're going to spit out some $10 words once in a while. So let them talk. And really listen. Have fun with it. It's probably the most I've laughed during a game. The cynicism, sarcasm, irony and goofiness of it all makes it a great game when you're tired with the normalcy of many other games. Really enjoyed it! Expand

But this game is very quirky and different than other games I typically play. Love the story, level/character progression, and sound. Only knock I have on the game is there’s ALOT of dialogue. You can get lost in conversation and going in loops if you’re not careful. Can definitely see though why it earned nominations for PC and overall GOTY. Expand

    The problem is with pacing and overall movement.
    Also the made-up names, locations and historical elements makes it annoying for me. They could use real stuff and it would be a million times better..
    7/10 for the funny moments, dialog and originality.

In its core it is a great game. But released in broken state. Crashes, corrupted saves, unfinishable quests, broken controls, lots of missing voice overs and noticable amount of wrong ones. Plus several technical issues (stuttering sounds, missing textures, long loadings). I would say this game should be purchased, but someone in the future, when it is finished. Expand
