    Jazzpunk: Director's Cut is a wild ride from start to finish. If you mesh with this style of humour, it's a barrel of laughs, and the game is just downright fun to play. Your experience will only last a few hours, but that just makes sure Jazzpunk never loses steam and is always hurtling forward at a million miles an hour.

    As any standup will tell you, the key to a successful joke is the execution – and Jazzpunk tees up its titters masterfully. [December 2016, p80]

    An absurd, slapstick adventure that puts laughs above all else. Jazzpunk's a smartly penned palate-cleanser that shines all the more brightly due to the lack of decent comedy competition on PS4. [Nov 2016, p.92]

    Jazzpunk is an absurd, quick-fire joke machine that holds its end of the bargain for the two-hour duration. Its sense of style remains strong and consistent throughout. There’s a lack of replay value beyond finding any gags you’ve overlooked but I can’t help but admire how different and funny this is. It’s brilliantly executed and carries a jaunty, playful tone that keeps things moving. If you’ve already ventured into the robot universe then the underwhelming multiplayer doesn’t feel like an enticing addition but we would definitely recommend newcomers checking this out. You will probably not play anything else like it.

    Jazzpunk clearly and proudly isn't a game for everyone, but for anyone who shares its developers' collective mindset, it's likely that there'll be a lot more hits than misses, and that by the end of those three hours, you'll be desperate for more.

    I liked the secret door quest in 1st chapter, such funny and at the some time you feel yourself a real agent, it is a childhood feeling
    The interludes with the pond are great, achievements are great, and the wedding cake is not a lie! Must try!

    Jazzpunk: Director's Cut
    This game turned out to be really good. Whilst in terms of gameplay it's fairly basic and is very short in length, it has a clear storyline while being silly and weird and having good comedy throughout the game. Also if you're looking for a really easy platinum trophy, this game is one. Got the platinum in 1 hour.
    Really enjoyed the game, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different to play

    Worth your time since it's so short, the humor is great, you will probably require a guide for some of the puzzles.

At the core it's a very basic adventure game (like a 3D cardboard version of Monkey Island). It mixes Japan, spy movies, androids & pop-culture references into absurd mix. It tries to be funny, but I didn't laugh really. Some gags were gunny though: especially the one with throwing pizza & a pair of sai weapons at a turtle.
    Bonus points for Soviet embassy with orthodox church domes on top. That was a funny design.
