Disco Elysium

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Disco Elysium is about the consequences of your actions, adding up to a fiercely original take on traditional RPGs.

Game Info

A CRPG in which, waking up in a hotel room a total amnesiac with highly opinionated voices in his head, a middle-aged detective on a murder case inadvertently ends up playing a part in the political dispute between a local labour union and a larger international body, all while struggling to piece together his past, diagnose the nature of the reality around him and come to terms with said reality.

9.7/10

Disco Elysium is a deep, sharply written, unique blend of noir-detective fiction and traditional pen-and-paper RPGs.

Not Recommended

A verbose and rich psychological roleplaying game that doesn’t offer enough choice in the role you play.

10/10

Disco Elysium is a detective RPG that sets a new standard for storytelling.
