I kissed hobos. I poisoned a cowboy. I swallowed a pigeon whole. Easily the most hilarious and surreal game I have played in a long time. It is so funny. My only wish is that it didn't end - in 3 hours I got 100% and I think I saw almost all the dialogue too. The next time it's on sale, just buy it.

What did I just played..

Jazzpunk, it's a game that... eh. Is it a game? Let me explain.

You're a special agent, and you get missions to achieve. Until stuff happen and you have to save someone (I won't spoil it).
Yea, the story is pretty weird and not much clear, but it fits into the game perfectly.

The style its pretty simple and cartoonish, but really original and good looking, the settings its like a 60s spy movie, with all the prerecorded sounds you have heard in a lot of classic movies (yes, they have the Wilhelm Scream).
The humor is great. I love it. It kinda feels a little bit like a Monty Python adventure. It's all set up to take you by surprise, and it works super-well.

The gameplay itself it's pretty easy, a sort of first-person adventure game. Even tho looks easy, it's a lot of fun to play. Expecially if you have to pick a nose to open a door or stuff like these.

The music is probably the main problem. I mean, it works a lot since it all sounds like a 60s movie, but it's way too ripetitive and loud.
Also, it is pretty short. It only took me 2 hours and a half to finish it 100%. And that's a shame, I was seriously hoping to last at least around 5-6 hours. Oh well, it was all fun.

Final rating: 7/10

Great game, you you will love it if you have a sense of humor that doesen't stop to poop jokes.

Went back and finished Jazzpunk today. This game...is...a....trip....super bizarre. Funny as hell as well. Kind of buggy, but not game breaking buggy. Sort of a Hunter S Thompson novel as interpreted by Adult Swim...sort of. I would absolutely recommend this for people who want to experience something completely unique and interesting. I suspect every experience playing this game will be fairly unique given all the various things available to experience during a play through. I think my own weighed in at around 3 1/2 hours or so, but I alos didnt do everything in the game. You could literally take in the visuals for a couple hours if you really wanted to.
So, definitely play this, but also track the technical issues thread in this games community hub. There definitely are some. For me however, they werent that big of a deal, and the game was such a rewarding experience that they were easy to overlook.

Jazzpunk is...well it's...umm...hmm...

Sitting here having finished the game, I haven't the least bit of an idea how I'm supposed to describe the bloody insanity that is Jazzpunk. I could say it's a psychedelic love letter to obscure references; an outrageous consolidation of ridiculous moments and hilarious dialog, brought to life with a bizarre art style and deadpan delivery. But what is Jazzpunk really? Well I guess it's all of these things and so much more; an barrage of creativity held together by forces beyond our understanding. It's insane and absurd, and I love it so much.

Set in an alternate history Cold War era Japan, you take on the role of Polyblank: espionage extraordinaire, who has been contracted to obtain confidential information from a top secret soviet headquarters. Utilizing prescription medicine and his many skills, from being able to speak to inanimate boxes to throwing popcorn on fellow theatergoers, he's the obvious man for the job and perhaps the only sane person left in this world (assuming he even is).

From the opening moments (which are absolutely brilliant, I might add) Jazzpunk pulls you by the throat down its rabbit hole of computer puns, pigeon degaussing, stick people, and Hunter S. Thompson. It's a mad, mad world that revels in its own absurdity and pulls it off with a consistency and potency that defies reason, but proves nonetheless hilarious and even nostalgic, pulling and referencing things I thought I'd forgotten so many years ago.

Jazzpunk exists in a vacuum of its own insanity; a colossus monument to the sheer power of imagination, and perhaps the closest thing to a videogame cult classic I've ever seen. I have no doubts that there will be people that "just don't get it", find it too simple a game, or otherwise fail to appreciate its genius and that's fine. It isn't a game for everyone, but for those that harbor a love for technology jokes, deadpan humor, and the plain bizarre, Jazzpunk's surreal brilliance is hard to miss.

This game has a minigame where you get to play as a cat rampaging through an apartment in first-person perspective. It's a good game.

Must-have if you're into absurdity/surrealism/parodies and artsy games.

I honestly havent played a game like this before. It's kind of an action adventure with one of the strangest settings I've seen in a game. The biggest plus in this game is the humour. The game is one big joke (in a good way ;) ). I've been laughing out loud a few times while playing this game, and this doesnt happen often to me. Does Adult Swim ring a bell? Do you like absurd humour like Robot Chicken? Then you should really check this out.
Oh, and it has one of the coolest intro's I've seen in a game. Who needs cinematics when you can make something like this?

Finished it in about 3.5 hours

There's not much to say else then spoilers, so I leave it at this. It's definately worth checking out!
