    Incredible game. Combat is spectacular. Quests are well done for an action game. Exploration is also done well, not open world but enough hidden around in seemingly empty areas to keep you looking. All in all I would say it's well worth picking up. I smashed through it without replaying any levels and it's taken me over 25+ hours to complete the main campaign. I missed quite a few side quests running through so it'd probably be 30+ easily for completionists. it's a 9/10 for me.

    I just finished this a few days ago. It has some pretty amazing wow moments and no one can argue that it looks incredible. I just wish it could've gotten out of its own way a little bit and quickened the pace. Some of the missions feel unnecessarily drawn out with little to no action. I also think combat is a bit muddled with a really bad action camera. While there's many cool things you can do during combat you only really need a couple of them to make it through. Mainly knowing how to dodge and warp to your Legion. I think they could've done a lot more here. Maybe the higher difficulties fix this problem.

    Update: I just completed my first playthrough of Astral Chain. Must say I loved the game. Story is typical as hell full of common tropes, twists and turns, but still entertaining. The game really shines with its presentation, style, music, level design and the fighting is ace, satisfying and fun. There's a lot of challenges and side stuff so the game has a lot of replay value as well. My first playthrough took me 40hrs. Ill be spending more time with this game for sure.

    Been playing this game for a couple weeks now. It is absolutely incredible. The fighting mechanics takes some getting used to but once you get a hang of it is very satisfying. Graphics, music, voice acting is done with finesse. The lore you explore is full of secrets and stuff to do. This game is also a Nintendo Switch exclusive. I highly recommend it.
