Summary: The game is enjoyable, but the music loop that plays and plays and plays and plays and plays, My God, it still stuck in my head and I haven't had the game on in months. It sounds like an old russian choir singing 6 notes over and over and over and over and over - Really SEGA? You couldn't do anything better?
Summary: I am a Mech fan so when i saw this game i was like yes more Mech.....Ok when I say mech ,I meant the anime kind where I can boost here and there or just boost period. This is a mech sim and the mech moves sooooooooooo slow .. but it is a mech so i will play it through to see how i like it i just started the game.
Summary: This game has alot of great gameplay for multiplayer, alot of what people want in there games even if they don't know it that is options. Sadly I hear the servers are down for multiplayer which is why this game is only selling for $4 used added on to the fact that it is old now. The single player mode doesn't hold this game up at all, at most it helps you get used to the game a bit before they throw you into multiplayer.
Summary: The game Chrome Hounds was an ok, but very confusing game. The controls are confusing if you are use to playing 1st person shooter games. What was also confusing about the game is the map. There was all these different grids with letter and number names and all that. Also, during the missions, you would have to find an enemy and destroy it. You are in the middle of a setting with confusing maps and lots of hills.
Thoroughly trained in English but all I can say is "Eh..."

Summary: I have been piloting 100-ton "Mechs" in fictitious environments for over a decade. I began playing Battletech on a ~50 Mhz Pentium in a "lush" 16-color setting. Since then I have customized and outfitted hundreds of mechs within every title of the "Mechwarrior" mech-combat series. I know the intricasies of mechanized combat. And yet still all I can say about Chromehounds is "Eh." The mechs are OK, the graphics are OK, the gameplay is OK, the options are OK...
Summary: The HOUND moves like a grandma, that means slowly. Graphics are okay, I've seen better. The HOUND has good detail everything else not so great. The gameplay is worthy enough to play. Toggling between the map, inside the HOUND veiw, weapons and the weapons range, and outboard camera is a little bit of a constant struggle of rediculousness. You're ever changing veiws and the map covers everything up so you can't leave it showing.
Conclusion: The learning curve for this game is far too steep its quite a good idea but going anywhere in a mech takes too long its not very action orientated. Very tactical aswell (well in a rock, paper, scissors way ) a good attempt by Sega but if your looking for the next Armoured Core continue waiting. The interface is rather fiddely aswell with the single player element being shallower than paris hilton you really need a Live subscription to get anything out this game.
