    One of the best shoot’em ups of this season. Great level design, controls and gameplay mechanics [Recommended].

    It's a solid experience with few rough edges--the acting is solid, though the choice to have the protagonist whisper everything she's thinkingIt's a solid experience with few rough edges--the acting is solid, though the choice to have the protagonist whisper everything she's thinking was a bit odd. 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. I'm usually far more of a sim guy in terms of space stuff, but this was an arcadey world I could get lots in and enjoy. Full Review »

    This is a good AA game. The voice acting and story are definitely the weakest points.

    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.

    That being said, the gameplay is Very fun and polished. The space fights are intense and rewarding. Piloting, drifting, using your powers, it all feels very natural, intuitive and fun, which isn’t at all common for these types of games.

    I also love the free roaming aspect of it, makes the world feel more alive and less artificial like in your typical roguelike.

    And all of that is what’s keeping me hooked.

    Perhaps best described as a AA version of No Man's Sky meets Control, Chorus sets its players in vast asteroid belts in search of collectiblesPerhaps best described as a AA version of No Man's Sky meets Control, Chorus sets its players in vast asteroid belts in search of collectibles and side missions, all while the protagonist Nara attempts to repent for past sins and tragedies. 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 »
