    There’s a synergy and balance between the story, controls, and gameplay that make this a genuinely standout space adventure perfect for any fans of the genre.

    Chorus is a surprisingly traditional space combat game with great combat and an engaging, if dry, story. No multiplayer nonsense, no ship skins, no in-game purchases just a solid single player space shooter and we're here for that all day, every day.

    A bit of a surprise, this one, a full-blooded space shooter that could sometimes throw a bit less at you but in the end stays fun and engaging. What a debut for the inexperienced team!

    Chorus is a frantic and rather challenging space shooter, with many different enemies and nice boss fights but also complex controls that will literally make you intertwine your fingers during the more challenging and blasphemous clashes.

    Despite a few flaws, in particular with regard to the structure of the scenario, the excessive presence of dialogues, an insignificant soundtrack and framerate drops, Chorus is the nice surprise of the end of 2021.

    Chorus is a mostly good game, with excellent dogfighting and gameplay that always feels fun to pull off. It also looks gorgeous and can make for an entertaining narrative, even if it's not really breaking the mold too much with its plot. Still, it's almost tragic how poorly the game's ending lets down the rest of the solid work that made everything else about it so brilliant.

    Chorus' stellar space combat is brought down by a myriad of design choices that range from frustrating to outright annoying.

This game seems to rescue something lost in the games industry, such as simplicity and fun. Although the plot is not so simple, the gameplay and especially the battles are very dynamic and fun. Nara's powers fit perfectly in space battles. Which makes me think that I will hardly find another game with spaceship battles as good as this one. Another thing I really liked were the dialogues between Nara and Forsa. At the end of the game I got chills with what happened in the final battle! Finally, I really hope that this game receives an expansion and/or a sequel. IN CHORUS!!! Expand

    Hadn't heard much about this game, saw the trailer on release day and had to buy it. Haven't had a really great 3rd person/ship shooter inHadn't heard much about this game, saw the trailer on release day and had to buy it. Haven't had a really great 3rd person/ship shooter in years. I loved the wing commander games back in the amiga days and enjoyed every version, few games over the years have scratched that space combat itch - this is the one.

    What a little gem this is, has a huge amount going for it. Not heard of the developers before, but they have done a fantastic job on this, pretty sure it's their first large scale console release, having done space shooters on mobile. It is very polished in all areas, visuals, audio, gameplay and story, some stagger work for a small team.

    First of the visuals are incredible, seriously one of the best looking games on PS5, runs at a butter smooth 60 frames in performance mode. Dense amounts of detail are packed in and draw distance is immense, haven't seen any pop in either, the bain of open world game. Not a dropped frame anywhere, which is incredible considering the scale and amount of detail and effects being thrown around.

    Must mention load times, just incredible, loading from fresh into a save game is literally seconds, surprises me everytime. Reloads of checkpoints are also ridiculously quick.

    Gameplay is engaging and the controls, once you get used to the drift mechanic it feels very satisfying, fun and an utter joy to play. You can boost at high speed in one direction and then press L1 allowing you to drift or rotate whilst still travelling in the same direction. Dog fights are very rewarding as you fly past enemies, drifting and tracking them as they fly past, blasting them with your gatling gun, oh yeah, feels good, real good.

    Controls will seem odd if you look at them on paper, they are more like a FPS shooter in that you have to push the left joystick forwards to travel forward. But compared to other recent space shooters like Star Wars: Squadron and SW:BattleFront II for instance, it quickly feels right and intuitive, and you're soon barrel rolling, boosting and drifting and have a lot of fun destroying the wide range of enemies.Capital ships are a blast as you destroy outer defenses and then have to go inside to destroy the reactor, really captures those moments you've always wanted to play from sci-fi TV and movie, all those battles from Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica and Star Wars.

    Each area is huge and packed with detail, you're free to divert from the main mission and complete side quests at any point and these are very diverse. Jump gates allow you to travel to each main area.

    I’ve read some reviews that have said the story is uninteresting and voice acting is wooden. I do not agree, the story and lore are fascinating and it feels like a lot of thought has been put into it. Voice acting ranges from good to excellent, with some really diverse accents. I must mention your ship, it is sentient and has some funny lines, it's always encouraging you during combat, it's great.

    My only gripe would be the mission pointers, sometimes I have got a little lost and wasn't sure where I should be heading, but a quick press of the x button reveals those points of interest again.

    I could go on for much longer and I dont write reviews often but I felt compelled to let everyone know how good this game is. The developers really deserve a better marketing campaign as this is seriously a joy to look at and play, its the game i've always wanted to play since seeing Star Wars 40 odd years ago. Please give this a chance and buy it if you like space shooters, I don't think you’ll be disappointed at all, we need more games like this.

    Very good game. Almost all the "professional" reviews were done in few hours becasuse the game arrived late to the media. No fair.

    Well worth the buy!

    Some people have mentioned the voice acting is weak but I'd disagree, it's solid along with the story. Weapons, customisation, abilities (rites) ant general dog fighting mechanics are amazing. You genuinely feel like a full on space ninja.

    The one thing that gets me about this game which stops it being a 10 - some missions are straight up bad (not many, we're talking 2-3) - the conditions are unforgiving so you can get right to the end and then the target ship just explodes on its own, so then you have to repeat it.

    Additionally one of tbf first big bosses is so badly designed that the only way to get through it is to reach a milestone, die 5 times and then eventually reach the next. I won't add spoilers but the first major boss has some extremely odd mechanics which you won't understand until you are dead. Then you get respawned right where you need to be.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Chorus è un gioco con il suo potenziale, la mia votazione è un 8 la varietà sulle missioni giustificata, bello il finale ma diventa sempre più difficile il gameplay consiglio di giocarlo completando la maestria. È un diamante grezzo per la sua difficoltà piuttosto alta ma non troppo. Bella la grafica pulita e curata. Expand
