Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Logan is a mercenary - one of the best. He has four years in the Expedition Corps and four in SpecForce. He has been on countless missions and has achieved a 100% success rate. With experience like this, one should be able to have it all. Logan could have made it big, if he wasn’t betrayed by old friend...

Now he is running away from his past to a place where he can start everything all over again. On the way he meets Carrie – a bounty hunter like him. Together they head for Valkyria – the most distant planetary system of the New Frontier, a perfect place for mercenary. It’s a world where everyone is for hire and nobody asks for references. It’s a world of renegades, desperate settlers and an asylum for criminals from the whole galaxy.

This is where a dramatic story of heroism, friendship and betrayal begins... Chrome is a tactical FPP shooting game whose action takes place in the future during the colonization of the newly discovered solar system of Valkyria. An unusual and dramatic story takes place among the huge and wild terrains of the five planets, within the residential complexes of the first settlers, deep in mines rich with precious minerals and inside the headquarters of the powerful corporations fighting against one another for the unique riches of Valkyria.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprise hit 18 Jan 2004
Verified Purchase
.
This is the game 'Unreal 2' wishes it was. I'm running this game on middling settings on my one year old Sony Vaio laptop and having no problems, so lets skip the 'weak machine' complaints. (You're playing games on a computer- if its slow, get upgrades.)
Chrome looks lovely, but as nearly all FPS's on the go now look lovely, it would be odd if it didn't. What this game has in spades is attitude. Theres a feel to it, the weapons, the uniforms, the ships, the audio, the in-game vehicles, it all comes together to give you a distinct flavour, which makes this game stand out in the crowd. Huge levels combine large open areas with intense multi leveled complex areas, forcing you to change tactics as you go. Combine this with a reasonable AI (flanking moves, covering fire) and it all adds up to a very nice package. And look at the reduced price tag! This would be a 4 star game, but now that its universally dropping in price, its also great value for money.
An excellent game, and one which we haven't been brow beaten into buying by the PC game media machine.
Did I mention its really good fun?

4.0 out of 5 stars Chrome that could have been Gold 6 Jan 2004
By M. Bhangal TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
if all you want is a game rather than The NBE - Next Big Experience(TM).
So why is this game not the NBE?
Well, for example, the main character is a cyborg who has implants added during the course of the game. In an ideal world, these would be bought, and there would be more implants than you could possibly buy, so you would have to customize your character in a particular direction - stealth and speed or weapon accuracy, or even hacking ability (a la Deus Ex). What actually happens is that you gain one or two implants at the start of each level, and have no say in character development.
There's a fair few of these strange decisions - wide sprawling levels, which imply several routes to completion, but in reality there is only one 'on-rails' solution being the other major funny.
These detract from what could have been an absolute stunning game. As it is, the game is simply good (or should that be 'Chrome') rather than Gold standard.
At another time, this would be bad news, but having played all the current crop of most wanted games of 2003, I have to say that almost half of them were disappointments. Deux Ex 2 is a step back from Deux Ex 1, Halo has a good start, but becomes very boring very quickly, Call of Duty is good but not that much different from MOHAA (especially in the fact that it lasts about 6-8 hours...) and let's not even start on Unreal 2! Only Knights of the Old Republic (which I have and will start looking at once I have got though Chrome) and Max Payne 2 (which I have completed, another short game, but recommended) seem to have got the gaming community thumbs up that a major release should really be getting.
Given this competition, Chrome starts to gleam. It wasnt a game that I anticipated buying, but I'm glad I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! 28 Sep 2003
Chrome is an FPS with attitude. With it's Deus Ex gameplay and Halo weapons and vehicules it is incredible! The missions you must accomplish, as a mercenary, are interesting and you visit many planets and environments.
The graphics of this game are unbelievable also! If you own a decent computer, with a good graphics card you will be able to see the game in all it's splendor.
It does take a good player to accomplish the missions well for most are quite challenging. You have a wide variety of levels but even "very easier" is challenging when told to take out a sniper!
To conclude, this is worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's fun, buy it and try it 4 Dec 2004
By A Customer
I don't usually play FPS games, I leave that to my son. But Chrome was a special offer price and we bought it to try. It's proven to be good fun and personally I think it's better than Halo - Combat Evolved.
Some reviewers complain about jerky control and long load times, but the truth is, Chrome needs a highish spec machine to run. I have a 1.3GHz Duron with 512MB + GeF4 MX440 which struggles to run single player Chrome in "safe mode" with all settings set to "low". The load times are very long, the frame rate poor and control response (movement, aiming and firing) can be grim. I also have an Athlon64 2.0GHz with 512MB + FX5900, Chrome flies on that system with all settings up on "high". The load times are a few seconds, all controls respond perfectly, the game looks great and is fun to play. On both machines the game has never crashed.
If you patch it to v1.2.0.0 you'll get a multiplayer mode with plenty of maps for the usual "CTF", TD" and "DM" play. Servers for Chrome internet gaming seem rare, but it's fun to play "Death Match" across a LAN and my low spec machine seems to handle the simple outdoor maps better than the huge single player environments.
I've marked it 4/5 not 5/5 as it can get a bit frustrating. Sometimes you'll wish you had an extra pair of hands and eyes to simultaneously control movement, fighting, using implants and the equipment in your backpack inventory. Trying to drive the Conquistador buggy and operate the machine gun at the same time can cause some stress and choice language! But you can save whenever you want, allowing you to work through in small steps of sucess, interspersed with the learning and decision making required to progress through the story.
