    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.

    It feels like Chorus has been flying under the radar ahead of its release, but in the wake of Dune’s cinematic release, it now feels like it’s arriving at the perfect time for anyone wanting another dose of space weirdness. Its mix of mechanics and magic, of sci-fi and fantasy – and even notes of horror – aren’t entirely unique, but they are arranged in a way that will feel innovative and fresh to many. Factor in thrilling space combat and its otherworldly beauty, and Chorus is a game that is sure to take players by surprise.

    Controls are great, battle system is impressive, and story is nice to follow. Chorus - is a little love letter to space shooters' fans.

    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.

    If you’re a fan of space combat and can push your way through the first couple hours, I’m fairly confident you’ll find a lot to like in Chorus. The core dogfighting is just plain fun, and the setpiece fights are something to see. If you’re not already a genre fan, however, I’m not entirely sure this will be the game to win you over.

    Although the basic storyline may be largely nonsensical, you'll come across a nice selection of characters to assist on your travels, all of whom are fully voice acted with their own minor backstories. Nara and Forsaken often exchange pleasantries, but their conversations can sometimes come across a bit clinical, and would have benefited greatly from a bit of added humour.

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

    This is a thrilling space combat game with an engaging unique story line.
    There is very little about the game not to like if you are a fan od space combat.the combat is fast and polished. Weapons are diverse and do different damage depending on which one.

    Reading some of the actual critic comments it's clear that they don't play space combat sims or the case of the poor ones. Rate the game based on their own ethics applied to the character. Not the actual game. Beware if you buy games based on critics reviews they aren't always rigbt

    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.

    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. Expand

    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

    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. Expand
