  • Conclusion: Conclusion Overall Chromehounds operates like Armored Core's slow cousin. THe multiplayer was the most appealing aspect of the game but the single-player is alright and the customisation is fairly in-depth. So it is a game that I would recommend purchasing, provided its a cheap purchase.

Xbox Evolved

  • Summary: Chromehounds is a special case, as it is one of those games that scream “hardcore”. The game is hardcore in the sense that, only a gamer with far too much time on his or her hands would take the punishment of completing the dry campaign. The hardcore gamers out there are the only ones that could stand the drab visuals, and boringly done sound.
  • Pros: The game has a very deep mech system to it, and thankfully it is tailored for Xbox Live pretty well.
  • Cons: Overall a underwhelming experience, the single-player is so dry it can be hard to keep playing.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Chromehounds had potential to be a solid game and has plenty of fun moments, but is massively let down by missions that are far too repetitive. Even fans of the mech genre will be disappointed by this.

  • Excerpt: Chromehounds from SEGA and From Software is a first and third-person shooter that throws the player’s nameless mercenary character into the midst of various bouts of politically fuelled territorial conflict some 20 years after the nuclear calamity of World War III. But, rather than hit the contested war zones as a well equipped foot soldier (ala Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter), the player must grapple with the controls of giant mechanical robots (HOUNDs) that...

  • Conclusion: Au final, le dernier jeu de mechas de From Software laisse un sentiment mitigé. Un mode solo pauvre, des graphismes en deçà des capacités de la dernière console de Microsoft malgré un mode on-line abouti. Cela dit, il possède de très bonnes bases pour une éventuelle suite qui ne peut être que meilleure et pourquoi pas, devenir la référence des jeux de méchas sur 360 !
  • Pros: Customisation des Hounds, La guerre online qui évolue au fil du temps
  • Cons: Le mode Solo, Les graphismes

Test: Chromehounds

  • Summary: Wer sich in naher Zukunft noch in einen Panzer setzt ist selbst schuld – Über Sieg und Niederlage entscheiden die Chromehounds. Der Name mag etwas verwirrend klingen, gemeint sind Mechs... große Kampfroboter die von Menschenhand gesteuert werden und sich gegenseitig mit Raketen und Dauerfeuer die Blechbüchse heiß machen. Ob der neuste Titel aus dem Traditionshause SEGA zu heißen Gefechten einlädt oder eher als "Rohrkrepierer" daherkommt, lest ihr im folgenden Review.
  • Pros: + tolle Steuerung, + taktisch Anspruchsvoll, + aufwändig gestaltete Hounds, + motivierender Online-Kampagnenmodus, - stellenweise langsames Tempo, - oft langweilige Missionen, - veraltete Zerstörungsanimationen

  • Excerpt: Avec une expérience acquise sur la série des Armored Core, From Software arrive sur Xbox 360 avec un jeu de Mecha. Et déjà à l'époque des Armored Core, ces jeux de gros robots ne faisaient pas l'unanimité. Avec un gameplay oscillant entre l'arcade et la simulation, des graphismes généralement un peu en retard avec leur temps et une customistion assez poussée de ces géants d'acier, la série des Armored Core n'a jamais vraiment convaincu le grand public et s'adressait...
  • Pros: le jeu en Live, le garage, animation des Hounds, guerre de Neroimus
  • Cons: solo court et linéaire, pas d'écran partagé, problèmes de serveurs, techniquement moyen
