Critic Reviews for The Chant

An independent horror game that pays homage to psychedelic horror, which we began to see in the cinema of the 70s, and brings original ideas, but with mechanics that have become outdated.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

A survival horror with some decent ideas, but which fails to express itself to the best of its ability because of an action pace that is far too choppy.

Review in Italian | Read full review

The Chant is a little rough around the edges, but there're some smart ideas and a strong story that keep you hooked throughout.

A visually striking take on the survival horror genre, The Chant solidifies its own identity within the alternative science of prisms and natural remedies. Unique game mechanics serve to create an unusual but fun experience, even if at odds with the overall narrative at times.

he Chant is a well-made third-person survival horror action adventure, which despite not departing from the formula in which you have to recover a series of objects to unlock a new area and progress in the story, manages to excite thanks above all to the human and fragile nature of the protagonist, involuntarily chosen in a situation bigger than her.

The Chant is a flawed experience filled with some fantastic moments, stellar monster design, light exploration and puzzle-solving, and a solid narrative to keep things moving. Despite its dated visuals, oversized linear world, and simplistic AI, you can find a nice survival horror romp in The Chant if you let yourself be taken by it.

The Chant offers a far-out setting, unique upgrade system, and some vintage charm, but restrictive level design, listless combat, and dingy visuals strike a sour note. While old-school survival horror fans may find The Chant appealing, wider audiences probably won’t be drinking the Kool-Aid.

If only the rest of the game could reach those standards; it's a frustratingly average title that does nothing particularly well nor insultingly bad. The Chant is just very okay, which is probably the most boring route it could take.
