Critics Consensus: Chronos: Before the Ashes is a minimalist, imperfect title that doesn’t feel as unforgiving as other games in the Soulslike genre. A disappointing story, clumsy camera angles, aging visuals, and flawed gameplay mar the experience.

Chronos: Before the Ashes is a minimalist, imperfect title that doesn't feel as unforgiving as other games in the Soulslike genre. A disappointing story, clumsy camera angles, aging visuals, and flawed gameplay mar the experience.

Claudio Magistrelli (The Games Machine)

6.5/10

“Chronos: Before the Ashes arrives too late to the party. Years ago, the main character’s aging mechanic would have been enough to grant it attention and praise. Today, it’s barely a spark of light in a technically dated game. The fact that the controls aren’t terribly responsive and the narrative is a bit confused don’t help either. Souls-addicted players might find its ten hours of length an enjoyable diversion, but that’s about it.”

2.5/5 stars

“Chronos: Before the Ashes is neither terrible enough to disown entirely nor deep or engaging enough to warrant a recommendation for anyone but the most genre-craved diehards.”

Not Recommended

“Chronos: Before The Ashes feels like a cash in, with nobody bothering to ask “does this really need to be ported over?”. Without VR it loses the magic of being in your living room knocking shit on the floor, and exposes the game as a very lukewarm soulslike.”
