  • Summary: Take on the role of Logan, a veteran mercenary turned bounty hunter who is out to make it rich. Using a system of implants, the player is able to manipulate Logan?s personality and abilities in order to accomplish all of the 14 missions where Logan takes part in breathtaking chases using futuristic vehicles, becomes a silent assassin to strike at unwitting enemies, and grabs his heavy plasma gun and implants enhanced muscles to storm through enemy lines.

  1. The type of game that you know you should find fault with, because the enemy is not real bright, but it is so much fun to go through the levels, solving the puzzles and completing your objectives while liquidating all opposition.
  2. Chrome's strong points make it a shooter worth playing. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good, albeit rough around the edges shooter experience.

    This one's definitely worth checking out if you're looking for something a little different in the FPS realm, but I'll warn you not to base the game off of the demo level because it isn't really a great representation of the game.
  4. It won't pose much of a challenge due to deficiencies in the artificial intelligence, and there isn't too much replay value to be found in the game either.
  5. It features a generic, yet well-delivered plot that is dragged down by average gameplay, a lack of substantial difficulty, and sound that can only be described as sub-par. However, it is quite stunning graphically, and might find a niche in the modding community.
  6. While all the pieces seem to be in place to deliver something special, they never quite gel. That's not to say that Chrome isn't a reasonably good game, but too many inadequacies prevent the action from seriously challenging the big guns. [Nov 2003, p.114]
  7. Most of the guns are uninspired and even boring - even the shotgun seems dull. [Feb 2004, p.60]

    Singleplayer is nice. You may die on normal if you play it first time, but after time hardest will be not enough! But not SP is what I want to tell you about.
    Multiplayer is AMAZING! Yes, last days there are not many cool inspiring guys online, but you surely sooner or later find some friends among them! This is the best MP FPS I ever played.
    Objectively: guns are VERY balanced. If you have a skill in FPS you can take a pistol and make a massacre all over server! Of course you can always take 14mm automatic rifle and be a bad guy with a big gun

    I loved this game, they did just about everything right. The start of the game is very linear, commander tells you to do x and you do it, but by the middle of that first mission your already having to make your own choices. Single player is difficult, so if you want those easy games you might as well quit reading now. It doesn't take long before you start getting implants, and that's when things really start getting fun, it really allowed you to customize your play style.

    The vehicles are pretty cool, even though their physics can be rather odd at times. In all, the story more than makes up for any faults the game has, and you should give it a try if your looking for a game from the days when they used to try to make interesting in game plots.

    Graphics are dated, but good enough, espcially for a $5 (or less) game. A decent storyline that gives you a long enough quest chain to make you feel like you got your worth. Variety of weaponry isn't somewhat basic, but the amount able to be carried allows for enough diversity to be carried. Also the stealth feature and vehicle driving are well done too.
    Overall a solid 7.

    Truly cheesy characters, graphics from 2002, the game itself actually feels like it should have been released 7 years prior and really wants to be deus ex but can't quite pull it off. That said, it's not entirely unplayable it's just isn't quite there. Expand

    To me, the game was just terrible. At least, graphics are okay, But game-play was no fun and was not exciting. I didn't like it. It was a waste of $5.

    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 prima donna commander, who won't progress unless I'm holding his hand.

    (Third time): killed commander as revenge for cancelling the mission. (Fourth time): commander died because a million guys rushed his position, and I could only kill all but two of them. Good to know he can handle himself in a fight.

    (Fifth - twentieth times): repeats of one of the first four. You're not allowed to do your own thing at any point in this sequence, even if it means completing the mission faster or more safely. You have to follow Commander Uptight's orders or he'll cancel the mission. And when that means staying in a tower with limited ammo and no way of switching to a different weapon or restocking when you're out, your options are die from disobedience or die from letting your commander eat it.

    The gameplay itself is decent enough. I dislike the way my bullets, even when very carefully aimed, seem to whiz right past my enemies. I also dislike the fact that my enemies are bullet sponges with Olympic marksmanship skills. The worst part is definitely the commander and his ridiculous "orders", though. When a game literally kills you and makes you start the whole level over (no saves or checkpoints) for not playing it the way it wants to be played, it's not really a game so much as an electronic to-do list, and that is most certainly not my idea of fun.

    I gave it one last chance, and I died from friendly fire. Yeah, this game's putrid. Don't bother with it.
