Disco Elysium was originally released at the tail-end of 2019, and I called it an incredibly bleak and gritty experience overall. It’s a tough game to play and it can be overwhelming, but just the sheer depth of the story and its character interactions make it worth checking out at the very least.
With the release of Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, the base game has been enhanced even further. This is a good time for newcomers to check it out, and for those who have already played the original release to return and see what’s new. Here are three reasons why you should be playing Disco Elysium: The Final Cut.
The Voice Acting
Easily the biggest and most impactful addition to Final Cut, the voiced lines in Disco Elysium truly help to bring the characters and world alive. Whereas you only had short sound clips and sound effects to indicate when a new voice was speaking in the game, the voice acting adds so much life and character to the overall experience.
Kim Kitsuragi sounds every bit as cynical and weary as you might’ve imagined his voice in your head, but I’d be remiss not to mention the internal voices that plague the detective every step of the way. The luxuriously written dialogue is perfectly brought to life by the deep and rich voice acting, and the voices sound seriously creepy whenever they taunt the detective with his deep-rooted insecurities.
It certainly takes some getting used to, but the voice acting alone makes Final Cut well worth a second look if you’ve already played the original release.
