    Chorus is a veritable smorgasbord of action, exploration, and captivating story. One that I’ll enjoy for many moons to come.

    By the time I rolled credits, there was no doubt that Chorus was the best space combat game I’ve played in years. The thrill of dynamic space combat coupled with a compelling narrative and overall superb design make this one an absolute a must-play.

    Astonishing action journey through a gorgeous universe with daring flight manoeuvres, cool space battles and an intriguing heroine.

    Chorus is a very fun and satisfying space combat adventure. The controls are smooth and forgiving while the combat is fast-paced and engaging. Where Chorus unfortunately falters is an over-centralization on the dark and dramatic main story that can often leave little room for the player to insert themselves into the place of the main character or make choices that feel impactful to the surrounding world.

    The space battles in Chorus are good, piloting its agile super-powered fighter through enemy fire while devastating hordes of enemies is fun. This efficient gameplay is its strength, and the special powers are well integrated into the gameplay. The fights tend to become too easy, but the boss battles compensate. The exploration is unfortunately not there as the open world is empty, it is more an excuse for dialogues and additional battles. However, it has the merit of being very pleasant to look at. The realization is quite good, whether it is through the graphics, the music, and even the cinematics and dialogues. So, we spend a good time on Chorus, during the twenty hours to finish it the first time.

    Chorus is a worthy Space Shooter, with very enjoyable gameplay, even if gets repetitive at some point. The real let down is the story which is quite boring, and told through weird means, like the inaudible thaughts of Nara. But there is a demo available, so try it before you buy it.

    Chorus is a game that works in the sense that it doesn't crash your desktop, but it's just an ambulatory shell with mere vestiges of soul left in it.

    This is my first review ever on this site. Usually I don't bother about this stuff, but I felt compelled to do this game a little justice. Ok,This is my first review ever on this site. Usually I don't bother about this stuff, but I felt compelled to do this game a little justice. Ok, so some dudes are despising the game just because the female protagonist/feminism agenda/etc. Lemme be clear: I don't like this trend either. It's kinda mandatory on the industry nowadays. Most of the time the thing is forced and ridiculous, like females that are extremely phisically superior to men, etc. HOWEVER, I saw no problem with this game. The lady is a pilot. Women can be pilots, what is the matter? Sure, women are prevalent on the game, there are some lesbians here and there, but I saw no disrespect to men either. Just 3 examples from the top of my head: Sav is cool, the general from the third star system that hates you on the beggining but turns around at the end is really cool, even your ship (that has a male voice) - would you call him weak? Everyone is treated with respect, I like it.

    OK, rant over, let's talk about the game: it's a Star Wars spaceship game clone, plain and simple. But it's an AWESOME clone, even better than the original in many ways. Reminds me a lot of really old spaceship games like Tie Fighter, X-Wing, StarFox, etc (yeah, I'm a boomer), the nostalgia hits hard and it's great. It has the combat portions and dodging obstacles/manuvering portion that I really enjoy. The big battles and boss fights are AMAZING, the soundtrack kicks in hard and it's thrilling to play and watch. Very challenging also. The weapons and powers are well implemented, you can tailor it to your playstyle, which is always a good thing (player expression, that is). There are some addons that can make your ship faster, stronger, more defensive, you can focus on missiles, lasers or the gatling gun, focus on the rites or try to balance it all. The options are there and it's well done. The story is nothing out of this world, but it serves its purpose for this kind of game. It's inoffensive, and that is enough for me. I would say the voice-acting is really good and the chat between characters are interesting, from time to time. Graphics are nice and the game is really light on the hardware. Controls are sharp.

    CONS: the maps are a little too big and hyperspeed a little to slow for my taste. Sometimes characters talking are interrupted out of nowhere and you can never hear what they were saying again. The HUD is a pain sometimes, making it really difficult to find objects, enemies or where to go (markers too small, maybe distinct colors could help with this?). There could be a bigger selection of ships and weapons for you to control. Some missions might feel a little repetitive (but there is good variety too).

    So all in all, this game is a solid 9 for me. I'm marking it as 10 just to balance the unfair scores bellow. If you like this kind of game, give it a chance. You won't regret it.

    This is an excellent game for the price.

    Very lengthy campaign.

    Fleshed out characters.

    Extremely satisfying flight combat and powers.

    Good music, good sound design.

    Great vistas and locations to explore.

    Some cons:

    Some powers fall by the wayside (blink and control), and are not worth spending the energy.

    Constant whispering is cringe and annoying; but the voice actress is great when not whispering.

    Dodging sniper fire feels super duper bad in this game.

    Dodging triple-sniper-fire feels even worse.

    Certain sections of boss fights don't feel great specially (M___a, no spoilers), but generally, the boss fights are excellent.

    No aesthetic customizations.

    This isn't a triple A game, but if you approach it knowing what it is - a high-effort AA game with tons of production value - then you will have tons of fun.

    There is tons of potential for a sequel here. Hopefully the devs take what works and improve on it.

I was waiting for the game's release, expecting a simple space arcade game, a roguelike at most. But I got a whole space rpg! This is not the usual formula of Elite-like games «get on the station, take a mission, fly it out, repeat». Everything happens right in space, as in the usual open world rpg. There are many quests scattered around the map and even more random events, there is a pump for the things you use more often (like in TES), there is an analogue of witcher senses, there are skills and inventory. Graphics and optimization for such a project is excellent. The local world in atmosphere a bit like Warhammer 40k, with its heresy and dark magic. User-friendly interface and controls on the PC. I really can't find any serious flaws in the game. And especially I do not understand why it has such low ratings. If you like games about space - play it for sure! Do A Barrel Roll!! Expand
