Despite a slow start, Witch on the Holy Night does earn its reading time. It takes well-established character paradigms and works them in fun ways. The limited animations punctuate and accent the words, creating vivid action scenes with color choices that pop. This is a title for kicking back and relaxing, as there isn’t anything happening on the gameplay front.
There are valid criticisms to level at Disco Elysium: The Final Cut. The console port wasn't handled as cleanly as it could have been and new players are likely to get blindsided in a way that just a touch more information up front would have avoided.
