    Offline mode - Average.<br /> Online mode - Awesome.

    I'm really upset that this game hasn't scored higher with offline mode. Ok, its quite easy, unless you want to get top marks for each mission, the music sucks and its frustrating that you can't check up the objectives... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Chromehounds

  • User Rating:9.8

    Don't listen to any of the official reviewers, they probably only played the offline. The online game is amazing!

    The important aspect of this game is the online game. That is it's sole purpose. There are offline missions, but those are designed mainly to teach you how to play a certain type of mech. Seriously, if you are even cl... Read Full Review

    EDIT: Could have been an excellent game

    When this first came out, I was in love with it. The concept is awesome, and it really does play well...when you can actually play. Single-player is boring, but easy. But, multiplayer could have been so much better. P... Read Full Review

    Man oh man Chromehounds,this game is great, to me at least lemme tell you why...

    Chromehounds is one of those games that get mostly bad reviews(like most mech games). But for me this game was spectacular. The best mech game to date as far as im concerned. Tonight I really had some time with this ga... Read Full Review

    If you like Mecha... you can't miss this one... I'm serious.

    If you are a BattleTech fan of old you are in for a treat. If you are a mecha fan you will be happy. If you like a game that has a strategic effect from every tactical engagement you make... you will be in heaven. I'm... Read Full Review

    True to Mechwarrior series

    When Mech Assault titles came out several years back, I was disappointed by the arcade version of an outstanding title starting with Mechwarrior 2. Chrome Hounds essentially revives the original Mechwarrior series. Mec... Read Full Review

    People need to give ChromeHounds a chance.

    ChromeHounds is a sim, not a MechAssault clone. You have to be aware of key aspects of a hound such as speed and tilt and all that stuff that will make or break combat for your specific hound. Also, the game is all onlin... Read Full Review

    I step in the right direction.

    Most Mech games are either over or under complicated. Chromehounds marries smooth Halo like shooting with mech combat in a way thats easy to understand but hard to master. Pros: The best thing about Chromehounds is th... Read Full Review

    This game really takes me back to the old robot games like Mechwarrior and Earthseige.

    When I got this game I expected a so-so robot game to tide me over, what I got was one of the best I've played in years. The garage feature in this game really lets you put together a cool mech to match your personal st... Read Full Review

    Chromehounds is a good game, but isn't for everyone.

    After playing such games as Mech Assault and Mech Assault 2, I was glad to hear that this game would be more strategic. However, they might have made the game too slow to appeal to the majority. The offline campaign ... Read Full Review
