Summary: I never thought I'd see a game make shooting bad guys completely unfun. But then came Chrome. Here's a rundown of my first twenty or so attempts to beat the first mission on normal difficulty. (First time): got killed by the second group of enemies I ran into. Dying is very easy due to high enemy accuracy and a crappy, slow healing meachanic. (Second time): mission was cancelled by my p rima donna commander, who won't progress unless I'm holding his hand.
Summary: I'm playing this now and all I play is shooters, I only payed 3-4 bucks for this download at steam and i usually say for 3 bucks pretty much anything is a deal. However, this game is just annoying, you can only have 2 weapons at a time and you have to constantly stop at every one you kill to look and see what he has on his person.
Summary: Installed ok and fires up ok but there is no option to invert the mouse so it will be almost impossible for me to play it. This is a major omission in this day and age. Glad I didn't pay like $49.95 for this.
Summary: I found out about this game through Amazon's suggestions system, where each game recommends others that are similar. I noticed that even for a 2003 game it was pretty pricey even if you get it used. I thought the game was done exceptionally well and would have rated very high when it was first released. It's a typical futuristic FPS in the tradition of HalfLife. There are a sequence of missions woven together by a story line with three endings to choose from.
Summary: Í remember the dozens of announcements of all those "halo killers". In the end only one of them came close - it was the Polish game Chrome. Featuring just as nice graphics and even larger terrains than Halo, plus more unlinear level design, Chrome had sort of a bad start and so most people even didn't give it the chance it deserved. And I'm talking about two different kind s of start.
Summary: I finished the demo without any hitches, glitches, hang-ups or lock-ups. When I went to buy the game at GameStop today, the guy told me that the game has officially been recalled. I enjoyed the demo and I would like to buy the game, but not if I can't play it. I don't want to spend twenty bucks on defective software. I honestly don't know what rating to give the game and I do not know if what the guy at the GameStop store told me is true.
The glitchiest game I've ever played, by light years

Summary: Let me begin by saying that Chrome is a very good game. It's no Half-Life 2 or Doom 3, but it's head and shoulders above the sea of mediocre first-person shooters floating around out there. But in the bugs/glitches department, this is far and away the most incompetently programmed game I've ever played.
Summary: Wow. Wow. Wow. What a nice surprise. SOOOOO Much better than Deus Ex 2--Invisible War. Terrific Action. Enormous outdoor environments that are incredibly well-designed and realistic. Driveable vehicles. DX-like cybernetic modifications. This is the game Deus Ex 2 SHOULD have been. Great strategy component, too, as you can only carry a realistic inventory and you're often outgunned in firefights unless you use a bit of strategy.
