An Explosive Battlefield Duet

PlatinumGames has a long and successful history of making stylish-action games, and Astral Chain is one of its most accomplished and enjoyable entries to date, giving both Bayonetta and Nier: Automata a run for their money. Acrobatic combat is the beating heart of this apocalyptic tale, sending hero and monsters sailing through the air as swords swing violently and particle effects shower the battlefield. This experience also deserves props for its meaningful world building, gorgeous science-fiction visuals, and side activities that range from odd to odder (in a good way).

CONCEPT

Control two characters simultaneously in this science-fiction brawler that delivers fun combat and exploration, but is a narrative mess

GRAPHICS

The futuristic cityscape is beautifully realized, offset nicely by the red glow of the alien dimension. PlatinumGames knocks the animations out of the park

SOUND

The silent protagonist doesn’t work well here, and some of the side players’ voices are too much. I love how the music switches from tranquil melodies to roaring heavy metal when combat erupts

PLAYABILITY

PlatinumGames does a nice job limiting the awkwardness that usually comes with dual-character support through smartly designed controls and A.I. assistance

ENTERTAINMENT

Astral Chain is fun from start to finish, and gives the player plenty to chew on in terms of side missions and post-game content

REPLAY

Moderately High
