Space exploration and combat games are always fun to play. If you are a fan of these then you would have heard of the developers Fishlabs, especially if you have played their mobile-based games. It looks like they are looing to move into the console market more with their latest game, Chorus. So let us look to see if they have mastered the console as well as they have the mobile market.

Release Date: 3 December 2021

CPU: Intel Core i5 2.4 Ghz / AMD Equivalent
GPU: Geforce GTX 960, AMD Radeon HD 7970

Thanks to the publisher for the review code.

Chorus is a game that is set in the future. The people now can get superpowers by tapping into something called The Void. The main character is Nara, who has a troubled past and is also a top-notch pilot taking on an asteroid field in her trusty ship, ‘Forsaken’. After living in peace for several years, her past finally catches up with her and battle and stop a cult called The Circle. They want to unleash a Chorus that will bring an end to everything Nara knows.

As you progress through the open-world asteroid field you will encounter lots of enemy ships and can find new weapons and other cool stuff to help you bring down the organisation. You will visit temples throughout the game world where you will be able to get new abilities. When you start the only one you have got is the ability to scan an environment for items and clues. As you make your way through the game, you will gain other useful skills like teleportation, so you can sneak up behind bad guys to take them out.

To aid you along your journey you have some great looking weapons which are powerful and helpful. Starting off with just a gatling gun this can fire off a lot of rounds and you feel it in the PS5 controller haptic feedback. Fear not though as you go on more weapons will be unlocked like a missile launcher and the classic laser gun. Then you can go the Enclave hangar and upgrade your weapons for even more firepower.

The storyline is not the best as it doesn’t always make sense. However, the characters that you meet along the way are fun and they do offer a lot of assistance on your quest. Each have their own backstory and fully voice acted, thought the conversations are sometimes mundane and a bit of banter would have been good to break it up.

As with most open-world games the side missions are fun and plenty to do. The visuals are detailed and dynamic with the cutscenes being your usual CGI affair, which works well here. The sounds are your usually space adventure and everything just blends together to work for this game.

Final Thoughts

Chorus is a great open-world experience. Given that this is Fishlabs first title on the PS5, did a great job giving their mobile background. There are a few minor quirks like the map tend to be a bit confusing at times, nothing that really breaks the game and spoils the excellent gamerplay experience. This is a one title I recommend to fans of this genre.
