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.
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.
Summary: Chromehounds is a decent mech game that merges the style and customization of Armored Core games with the simple control style of Mechassault. The developers also tried to encourage teamwork by forming RTs or role types for each of the mechs. You've got Soldiers, Defenders, Scouts, Snipers, Heavy Gunners, and Commanders. Most custom mechs will be hybrids of the different RTs but that adds to the strategy of the game.
Fun, strong title for the xbox360, needs more depth

Summary: I've played a variety of mech games over the years. From Armored Core, Mech Warriors, Frontline, etc. This game overall is aobut ABOVE AVERAGE. But i wouldn't say its a great game. The missions could use a little more work. When you get lost in your mission maps, i couldn't get a repeat of my mission or find out what i needed to do...unless i couldn't figure out how to bring up the mission briefing menu..
