The story was a bit of a push to get through. But the feel of the game was strong, the controls were tight once you got the hang of them, and you were very quickly feeling like a space badass.

The HUD is very subtle and it makes it difficult to find your targets and I find myself straining my eyes, especially while I’m circling around looking for my enemies at the same time I’m dodging because I’m getting shot at.

While the writing and story direction don't ensnare the player with the incessant itch to progress, elements of the narrative are reminiscent of Control, complete with audible voices in Nara's head directing many of her actions. The graphics and performance are nothing short of a spectacle — the draw distance and equally appropriate photo mode are absolutely unparalleled. Anyone in search of a fun, customizable, and downright difficult space-action gameplay will not go wrong here. In a sea of buggy releases and unfinished products, Chorus shines as a polished, stunning visual and immersive experience set in various open-space environments.… Full Review »
