Awesome if you like mech games AND have xbox live.

I've played chromehounds for over 50 hours on xbox live now and I must say this game has grown on me. Once you start customizing your mech you start to appreciate just how different you can make your hound and the advantages that each hounds has on each other. In short you can make a slow hound with mega firepower or a fast hound with less firepower. What makes the game good though is that the faster/weaker mechs can definitely take out the slower/stronger hounds. That's what I like about this game, no matter what hound you make, if you can operate it correctly you can do well. The graphics for the game are very nice and sharp for this kind of game. The graphics that need to look well on this game do, such as the mechs themselves and the explosions. The environments looks good also and there is good diversity in the environments offered such as deserts, snowy areas, forested areas, and water areas (harbors are fun with hovercrafts btw). My main complaint with chromehounds is that there are numerous bugs. Patches are being released to help handle these bugs but one patch was just released and I still notice weird things occuring such as not seeing teammates in the same lobby, disconnect issues, sloooooow load times, and game freeze issues. If these bugs were not there this game is easily 8.5 overall. If you are a mech fan and have xbox live I recommend this game. Give it time, learn the game (and how to configure mechs properly, it's not that complicated if you think about it), and have fun online.
Tilt: As stated before, this game is 8.5 with no bugs for multiplayer.
