The Chosen: Well of Souls review

  • Pleasant graphics and art style
  • The hilariously bad voice-acting
  • Inexpensive
  • Boring gameplay and no real innovation
  • No multiplayer at all
  • The agonizingly awful voice-acting

Based on the laugh-out-loud voice-acting in the game's intro cutscene, and also throughout the game's spoken dialogue in general, we had to assume that Rebelmind used family and/or friends to deliver most of the lines. The Chosen's remaining non-spoken sounds are, mercifully, fairly well-done so the aural torture (or hilarity, based on your personality) is only a brief annoyance.

Unfortunately, this genre requires a lot more panache and even more addictive gameplay hooks, something The Chosen fails to accomplish in its quest to push you that much closer to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. At its best, this is a pretty game that seems to understand the target it was aiming for but fails entirely to hit the mark.
