Quotes

Kim Kitsuragi: Detective, each of us has our part to play in the world. My part is to solve crimes. I am under no illusion that my role isn't a minor one, in the scheme of things... but I embrace it *because* it's my role, and it's yours too, detective, whether you accept it or not!

You are a detective and you have nothing to lose
13 April 2020 | by leshashkSee all my reviews

When I came across this title, the keyword for me in the summary on IMDB, was "detective". I checked the game trailer and the right murky setting, you would expect from a story about a detective, was there, so I did not think twice and one week later I entered the world of Elysium. Oh, boy. Should I say I was not disappointed!

The game starts in a hotel room. You wake up and can't remember even your name. This is how your journey begins. I don't want to spoil anything further. But I think it's safe to say that you remember something about your wife. And something tells you it's a sad story.

The game has its syle. The overall dark mood and all those intellectual conversations you are going to have, help you do dive deep into the Elysium mystery. Plus there are many layers to the story. I think investigating every corner inside the game not only will take time but it also requires several playthroughs. Some information can't be unlocked until you start the game over from day one.

Overall, it feels, especially approaching the finale, that the developers set the bar too high and it was hard for them to keep up. Nonetheless, I think to appreciate the effort at least do few key things before making your opinion about the game: don't miss the night call, the "wake up" moment in the investigation, and the beautiful song (yeah you are not wrong when thinking this game is somehow connected to music).

The case you are to solve is interesting by itself, but for me, that side story, the memories about the wife in the detective's life became the reason I did not give up until the final credits. I strongly encourage you to play this game. The sadness has its name now, and for me, it's Disco Elysium. How simple!
