The first mech shooter on Xbox 360, Chrome Hounds involves futuristic combat in a world dominated by armored behemoths known as Hounds. Players assume control of a Hound unit as one of five squad member types or as a tactics commander, with the latter responsible for issuing verbal orders to teammates on Xbox Live. Each Hound unit offers varying degrees of movement, firepower, and abilities, with players able to customize their walking weapon of mass destruction with millions of individual parts, accessories, weapons, and skins.
Chrome Hounds takes place from a choice of first- or third-person views on 115 maps of war-ravaged, bombed out areas. In addition to the tactics commander, squad roles include scout, soldier, sniper, defender, and heavy gunner, allowing team members to specialize in specific areas based on their preferred play styles. Online support for up to 12 simultaneous combatants is included for both cooperative and competitive campaigns. Veteran developer From Software, best known for its Armored Core series on PlayStation and PlayStation 2, lends its expertise in the genre to this original property. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
