"Sega pulls the plug on FROM Software's sublime online Mech war after 3 and a half years
The first time I played the Chromehounds demo, I was resolute that it would never enter my collection
Sega / FROM Software's Mech shooter seemed to be a bit sparse on the action, tore like buggery and felt like an insult to games like Mechwarrior 2, games that did mech warfare properly.
Like a lot of reviewers who did the game a serious disservice by not even bothering to take the game online, let alone sink enough hours into it to come up with a measured and proper response to its deep persistent-war driven gameplay, I was incredibly wrong about Chromehounds and once word started to get round amongst those Xbox 360 Gamers who took the plunge and bought it, Chromehounds became an essential purchase."
