5.0 out of 5 stars Great game that nobody played March 24, 2004
Chrome is not flawless, but it's just plain fun. There might be some pieces missing, but the most important stuff is done right.
Chrome is a first-person shooter with a couple of important extra features. These features don't sound like much until you actually get to play through them. You play as a mercenary/bounty hunter who travels across the galaxy rescuing hostages, recovering stolen equipment, and then getting in the middle of an intergalactic corporate struggle. The locales that you visit are not only beautiful, but they are huge and wide open. I can't tell you how much I love those big open areas. You can easily spend an hour and a half or more on each mission, thanks to all the time that you spend creeping around in the forest, sneaking up on guard patrols or avoiding them altogether. Sometimes you find a sniper tower that you can use to snipe guys from half a mile away. The levels are very nonlinear and rarely seem like they are contrived or built just for you. Instead, it feels like you are actually infiltrating realistic bases and installations. It's also great being able to play for an hour without seeing a loading screen. There are a lot of indoor areas too, but they aren't as much fun to play in as the outdoor areas.
Stealth ends up playing a big part in this game, and it ends up being surprisingly good. Even the pure stealth levels, which I normally hate in a non-stealth action game, are good. The outdoor areas have lots of trees and rocks to hide behind, and with the use of your binoculars or radar, you can avoid enemy patrols or pop them in the back of the head when you catch them by surprise. Once again, the big open areas are what allow you to do this.
The weapons have a realistic feel to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutly Awesome! November 16, 2003
This game is truly awesome and very enjoyable. The graphics are top notch and very realistic, right down to the grass blowing in the wind and the occasional butterfly that flies around. The indoor environments are somewhat repetitive but it is no bother since pre-fab structures would most likely be the norm in space exploration. The game is sort of a mix of Deus Ex and Operation: Flashpoint, but it is more comparable to Deus Ex.
The story lacks the depth of Deus Ex but it is servicable for a game of this type. You play a mercenery named Logan who does dirty work for the various corperations and colonists of the "new frontier" and in this New Fronteir exisst a substance called Chrome. The game never fully explains it but it is a rare substance that is used for terraforming, mass destruction weapons, and as an energy source. It is very much the equivilant of Gold or Uranium. And much like those susbtances, mega corperations are willing to to anything to get their hands on as much of the stuff as possible and develop technologies and make profits based on the material. There are plenty plot twists and turns.
Much like Deus Ex you have augmentations, called implants in this game, and instead of having to watch the bio-electric energy consumption you have to watch your neual health as the implats tend to put it into overdrive and cause it to heat up, which can lead to brain damage. I ended up not needing the implants as much as the augmentations in Deus Ex but they are useful, especially the targeting assistance, eye scope, and dermal armor.
In this game you get to pilot various vehicles, the most interesting of which are combat walkers, which are sort of like mechs. The infantry weapons are typical for a game of this type but at least they are not too quake-like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chrome - A very pleasant surprise!!! December 22, 2003
By G Darke
Verified Purchase
Despite subscribing to two different PC gaming magazines, I had never heard of Chrome till a few weeks ago. I found the playable demo on the web and downloaded it - not expecting much. However ...
The graphics were great (NVIDIA Gforce Ti200 on my machine), the game has a plot that evolves, many single player missions (I did not try the multi-player), different difficulty levels that add real challenge. It took many days to play and after completing the whole game once, I changed the difficulty level and went back and played with more of a stealth strategy (rather than "just shoot everything" and enjoyed the whole thing all over again.
It is on a level with Unreal 2 for plot and game play. I also found it similar in style (weapons, inventory management, strategy, in-game movies, etc) to the first Deus Ex - which is one of my favories.
If you liked games Deus Ex, Unreal 2, Half-Life, and even Halo - you should look at Chrome. It is also a great value for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SCI-FI ACTION SHOOTER of 2003? YES! January 23, 2004
Wow. Wow. Wow. What a nice surprise. SOOOOO Much better than Deus Ex 2--Invisible War. Terrific Action. Enormous outdoor environments that are incredibly well-designed and realistic. Driveable vehicles. DX-like cybernetic modifications. This is the game Deus Ex 2 SHOULD have been. Great strategy component, too, as you can only carry a realistic inventory and you're often outgunned in firefights unless you use a bit of strategy. The only flaw is the facial modeling of the characters is a bit weak, but the lip-synch is actually darn good, as is the acting and the story. Buy this instead of DX2! You'll be GLAD you did.

This game is boring and a pain to try to play. Not very responsive and aiming is mostly guesswork. Dull.
