“Astral Chain feels like a low risk game because it’s on Nintendo Switch, but it also feels like a huge effort has gone in. PlatinumGames have delivered a brilliant game, here, one that’s deep and offers accessibility for people who struggle as well as people who want to master every inch of the combat. Aside the platforming and stealth, there’s very little to complain about. It’s a testament to how strong a title it is that, immediately upon completion, I returned to play through the files on a harder difficulty, trying to get the S+ rank on them. In a crowded marketplace, Astral Chain stands out as a unique, interesting game that you’d be foolish to pass up on.”
