Chasm: The Rift Review

Oct 14, 2022

While Chasm: The Rift might not be a household name, this is lovely remade version of the original due to the apparent loss of the original source code will get people talking. As a result of that, this takes on a unique form of video game preservation that we don’t see a lot of. Chasm: The Rift was originally developed by Action Forms, and this was the Ukranian developer’s answer to Quake. Playing the 25 year-old game today evokes nostalgia that was never present for me, but holds up surprisingly well and is fairly unique regardless of its influences. Chasm: The Rift is an inventive and quirky first-person shooter that doesn’t overstay its welcome, and is a blast from start to finish.
