Disco Elysium draws you in with its weird yet familiar setting with a plot that is ever branching. Whether it's the interactions with the characters or the setting, everything is artistically articulated.

Bolstered by new features and quality-of-life upgrades, Disco Elysium remains a clever, uncompromising examination of how hard it is to do something as complicated as exist in the real world.

Disco Elysium - The Final Cut combines different elements in a very engaging RPG. Investigation, existentialism and politics are mixed in an unusual adventure full of simple and elegant mechanics. There is much to see in its elaborate world, which can be explored in different ways. The dense narrative explores remarkable themes through several memorable characters and poignant scenes, in an elaborate and impeccably localized Brazilian Portuguese text. In addition, visuals with impressionist touches, soft music and accurate voice acting set the melancholic mood of the city of Revachol. In the end, these characteristics make Disco Elysium - The Final Cut an exceptional experience.

Disco Elysium The Final Cut succeeds in the difficult task of elevating the original work from a "phenomenal role-playing game" to a masterpiece of the genre that anyone should play at least once in their life.

On PC, this is a great RPG - and finally one that has deserved the genre title. The console port on PS5 cannot convince me as much, however.

From the most hemmed-in of interstices, the deepest of all swales, and the coldest, most ruinous morning of your life, you exist. You might awaken with bloodshot eyes, a headful of regret and a stomach filled with things far worse. But today… today is always the day you can begin again. We can be better, save each other from the crevices and darkened corners where we’ve kept ourselves hidden. It won’t be perfect; it won’t be pretty. In fact, it’ll probably be ugly as shit. You might kick and writhe, scrape and struggle until your nails bleed and your throat turns to sandpaper. But it’ll be right. And life will go on.

‎There is no better way to live the experience of Disco Elysium: The Final Cut than to play it for yourself, because although it is an independent title, at this moment it is difficult to find another similar experience in the world of entertainment because of the way its narrative conveys success and failure, in addition to the political and social ideologies that concern its protagonists in a fictional world overshadowed by corruption and poverty. It is highly satisfying how he manages to take up the mechanics of traditional role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, adapting it to the current era where originality becomes more difficult to achieve every day.

Disco Elysium can be thoughtful, funny, sad, and profound. To see how it artfully navigates that spectrum, you simply need to play it for yourself

Those that have been waiting to try Disco Elysium have no reason to hold out any longer. The game is available on pretty much every platform out there now, and it’s well worth playing. It’s unlike just about anything else, and it begs the question of what developer ZA/UM will manage to craft next.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is an exceptional achievement in role-playing. Expertly written, it's an utterly engrossing detective drama at its best, and a fantastic sense of humour keeps the whole thing grounded. Its deliberately slow and methodical pacing won't be for everyone, but once you're invested, it's incredibly hard to put down. A haunting video game, for all the right reasons.

Vast as an oceanic soul of late-stage alcoholic, Disco Elysium remains one of the most sincere, deep and meaningful stories about destructive nostalgy, communism, and a true unending love.

Even with the handful of bugs this is a unique experience that is very easy to recommend. It's an amazing RPG with an absolutely stunning amount of depth for a game where you're mostly just talking to people. Both the story and cast of characters are highly memorable and no two players will have the same experience. It's really easy to see why PC gamers have been raving about Disco Elysium, this truly is a must-play experience.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is an absolute triumph. The narrative and dialogue, which is already wonderfully compelling on its own, has been given a massive boost thanks to the excellent voice acting introduced for the Final Cut. The gameplay features a host of branching paths for you to explore, and while the slow, methodical approach may turn a few people off, this is nevertheless one of the most well-told stories in any medium from the last few years. The performance issues at the time of writing slightly took the shine off things - and we hope they're ironed out soon via updates - but even with them present, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut stands as one of the best RPGs available on Switch.

It goes without saying, Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is going to be a divisive experience. Some people are going to love all the dialogue, options, and role-playing elements. Even returning fans will flip at the voiceovers that really make the experience immersive. This just won't appeal to everyone. Some players will want to do more or possibly get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of dialogue, which totals over 1 million words, though for those this appeals to, it will really appeal to.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is the refinement of one of the most innovative systems in the RPG genre of recent times, with interesting missions, a very particular artistic style and a surprisingly well-articulated branched narrative construction. A must for lovers of a beautiful story and a great RPG.
