  1. Chromehounds is really, really, really boring to play...Not one that I can imagine Xbox 360 players sticking with for more than a handful of hours tops, no matter how starved they are for new releases at the moment.
  2. The potential behind the game is unmatched, but an extremely poor online interface coupled with lackluster servers and a relatively boring single player experience makes Chromehounds a chrome donkey.

Where is the head's-up I will be a happy man the day From Software starts making their mech games as fun to play as they are to look at. Where is the head's-up target acquisition system? Where are the elaborate next-gen explosions? Where is the intuitive mech design and customization interface? Simply put, WHERE IS THE FUN? You'd think that From Software would have this genre completely mastered by now. After all, they've been making mech games for over a decade now. Chromehounds is a heavy-mech-sized disappointment.

Chromehounds offers an insane amount of mech customisation which can lead to very varied mechs and strategies for using them. The campaign was okay but the multiplayer was awesome. The maps were massive and the combat was fun. It's really a shame that the multiplayer servers were taken down. Full Review »
