Blazing Chrome Reviews
A good game is still a good game regardless of generation.
Blazing Chrome is a nice mixture of contra and metal slug series. It has both positive and negative points from these 2 nostalgic series, But in the end, Blazing Chrome is really one of the best run and gun 2D shooter games you can experience in this generation. Be ready for a really tough challenge in this old-school style hardcore game.

Blazing Chrome is a must-buy for retro fans. It looks and plays great - albeit with a few frustrating aspects inherent to the genre - and is even more fun, and chaotic, in coop.
Blazing Chrome knows perfectly how to strike a chord to make us believe that we are dealing with a real retro game, with a simple and direct gameplay typical of the time and with a sound and visual section that will keep us with a smile on our face. On the other hand, the game has a short duration that leaves the player wanting more and a system of aids that may be in dissonance with the rest of the elements. Otherwise, a safe bet for entertainment.

Blazing Chrome captures very well the glory days of the SEGA & SNES era. The atmosphere, the difficulty, the retro tunes…everything is there.
Blazing Chrome is the coin op you didn't play in the arcade, the cartridge that never came out for Neo Geo, the game you didn't know you missed so much. A game with spasmodic, sadistic and punitive action, just as we liked in the 90s.

The best Contra game for decades, even if it's not an official sequel, with amusingly over-the-top action and a great co-op mode.
Blazing Chrome is an amazing package that does exactly what it sets out to do and is for people who know what they want from it. By the same (arcade) token, it is difficult to recommend to anyone who even begins to question whether it’s a game for them.
Blazing Chrome is a pleasant gift to the bored fans of the classic Contra with fun gameplay, well-balanced high difficulty and beautiful pixel styling. If you have already finished Cuphead and are waiting for something hardcore and interesting in the format of side-scrolling shooter, you can safely buy this project. The game will not disappoint you.

Blazing Chrome doesn't try to be anything more than a classic run-and-gun and easily exceeds expectations, although the length does leave something to be desired.
Blazing Chrome's success comes from taking inspiration from the best 16-bit run-and-gun games -- with everything from the detailed pixel art, to the fierce two-player action feeling like a glorious homage to Contra III: The Alien Wars.
Blazing Chrome is more than a simple hommage to the Contra and Metal Slug series : the game also take liberties to offer the genre a new and strong challenger. With two very different styles and a delightful pixelart look, there is much more than meets the nostalgic eyes in this complete run and gun.

Blazing Chrome is a fantastic slice of retro run 'n' gun that deftly pays homage to a golden era of side-scrolling shooters. Badass.
Blazing Chrome is a game that makes feels like I stepped into a time machine and arrived back during the heydays of the forgotten Run N' Gun arcade shooter genre. Challenging, fun and one of the best games 2D shooters I've played in quite some time.
Blazing Chrome is a true old-school throwback to the glory days of Metal Slug and Contra. It may pay a little too much homage to its forebears, but there's plenty of satisfying hardcore action on offer for the faithful.
Blazing Chrome is a short, blazing run and gun experience well worth the lower price tag that accompanies it.
A straightforward and to the point Contra-like experience sums up Blazing Chrome well. With six levels that will probably only take you an hour or three to clear the first time through, it's a tiny bit light on content, but thanks to the co-op and unlockable modes, more mileage can be squeezed out of this short and sweet joyride.
Packing retro aesthetics and just the right amount of challenge, Blazing Chrome is the best run-and-gun in years. Though it is a bit on the short side, it perfectly encapsulates the pure kinetic energy that put the genre on the map.
