Way Too Many Games (Sep 12, 2019)
Astral Chain is one of Platinum’s finest games to date, with a strong and unique combat system, a great cast of characters and a world that’s very fun to explore. However, the way the story is presented does bring the experience down a little.

“Platinum Games has delivered on yet another stellar title to add to their long list of success stories with Astral Chain.”

Astral Chain is every bit as awesome as it looks in motion, which is to say it’s downright incredible.

With a perfect blend of high-octane action and enjoyable laidback moments in-between, Astral Chain presents a masterfully immersive campaign. In the end, it's certainly the next must-have game for Nintendo Switch.

Platinum Games ist immer für eine Überraschung gut. Astral Chain punktet vor allem mit der Summe seiner Elemente, die das technisch für Switch-Verhältnisse überragende Abenteuer zum wohl ambitioniertesten Spiel der Bayonetta-Entwickler machen. Das Kampfsystem zeigt die charakteristische Dynamik, profitiert aber vom Zusammenspiel mit dem taktischen Einsatz, der für Spieltiefe sorgt. Zwar können Erzählung und Charakterzeichnung nicht mithalten, was durch die uneinheitliche Sprachausgabe mit dem stummen Protagonisten noch verstärkt wird. Auf der anderen Seite brennt man jedoch ein Feuerwerk an Mechaniken ab: Vom Krimi-Adventure bis hin zu den Dungeon-Rätseln eines Legend of Zelda. Astral Chain mag nicht das beste Spiel von Platinum Games sein, doch es ist eines der interessantesten Projekte der Kultschmiede und ein von Anfang bis Ende sehr unterhaltsames sowie forderndes Erlebnis. Um diesen Titel kann man die Switch-Spieler beneiden.

Though Astral Chain is not perfect, it is still an awesome game. It is more or less what people wanted out of the game and was more than what I expected. It is pretty decent action game with an interesting premise, fun characters, and an interesting world. If you were looking forward to Astral Chain, I doubt you will be disappointed. If you were on the fence about it, I hope that my review has pushed you over the edge to making that purchase. Pick it up, kill some monsters, crack a Monster, enjoy yourself. This is a video game, and video games are meant to be fun. Mission accomplished Platinum Games.

Lekkert, lekent og enormt stilig der det virkelig gjelder.

Astral Chain n’est pas parfait. Ses phases de plates-formes sont agaçantes et les quelques enquêtes qui ponctuent l’aventure à intervalle régulier valent plus pour les moments de calme qu’elles créent que pour le challenge qu’elles opposent au joueur. Mais son rythme, sa progression et surtout ses phases de combat hypnotisantes, alliés à une richesse de gameplay surprenante, nous ont séduit. À tel point que nous n’avons pas vu filer les quelque vingt heures que nous avons passées dessus. À la fois original et ambitieux, le nouveau titre de PlatinumGames devrait séduire tous les amateurs de beat’em all, et notamment celles et ceux qui attendent impatiemment Bayonetta 3.
RPG Site (Aug 29, 2019)
When all is said and done, I think Astral Chain is a special game. There’s not anything else that’s quite like it and I admire how much it shakes up the PlatinumGames formula. It doesn’t fully succeed at everything it sets out to do, but the foundation is solid enough to improve upon. Astral Chain is an exhilarating ride that never let go of me once it clicked. If it ever sees a follow-up that irons out its problems, then PlatinumGames may truly have another new classic on the horizon.
