Chromehounds is a tactical squad based mech game. Released July 7th 2006 for the xbox 360.
Played completely online (there is a single player game mode, but it's mostly just training and not very long). You work together with a squad of friends to compete in matches of up to 6 vs. 6.
The game is set in a world of 3 fictional nations locked into a constant battle called the Neroimus war. The 3 nation involved are Sal Kar, Morskoj, and Tarkia. Every match you play moves towards capturing that specifc map, and eventually the enemies capital. Eventually one side will win and than the game resets and starts all over again.
Matches are decided by destroying your enemies HQ. When you start a match you only have a very limited radar range decided by your commanders mech NA range. scouts go out and capture COMBA's (big radar towers) that add to and expand your radar view. with this your commander directs everyone on where to go and the best strategy to win.
But enough of the boring stuff.
There is an awesome mech builder in the game, with 100's of different parts to build your death machine with.
Parts are split into weapons,mobility bases, cockpits, generators, spacers, armor, na makers, and some assistance and accessories. you can place your parts however you want, building off of each previous part through a series of hard points.
With this you can build mechs that fall into one of six general types.
Scouts - they move forward fast on the map in order to well scout out the enemy, and capture COMBA's
Soldier - there your main front line fighters. Relatively fast, well armed. very good at taking out other mechs.
Sniper - long range, very good damage from the rifles, but if you let anything get too close your toast
Commander - usually well armored, and carries your NA generator, this guy tells you what to do.
Heavy Gunner - Big giant cannons and rockets, lays down some serious hurt
Defender - sticks by the hq, slow, heavily armored. Your last hope against anyone attacking.
and heres some pretty pictures of mechs.
so who wants to play this again? squad can hold up to 20, and the more that get on the better chance we get at having full matches.
