I realize some people won't like this game based on the single player option. If you don't have xbox live, don't get this game. If you do enjoy online gaming, then this is the BEST game to rent. Throw yourself in the online war and get ready to call in sick from work, stay up late and get as much online time as you can. Watchout Halo, theres a new online addictive game and it's called Chrome Hounds!!

I typically don't write reviews for games but after reading some of the reviews slamming this game I had to write something to defend it. If you are not playing on a HD TV than you might think the graphics are only okay or worse, I cannot comment on that because I have not played it in anything but HD. If you are playing on an HD TV you will be more than thrilled with the looks of the mechs, objects, and explosions. I have played quite a few 360 games and I think the look of this game is one of the best so far on the 360. As far as game play goes, I see many people complaining that it moves slow. You are piloting a 40', 30 ton mech, IT IS GOING TO MOVE SLOW! And personally I don't think that it is even that slow. From someone who has played all the MechWarrior games and MechAssault games I have thoroughly enjoyed playing Chrome Hounds and recommend it to any true mech game fan. And if you are new to mech games than I feel no better place to start than with Chrome Hounds.
