  • Conclusion: Haze is mostly average, but some of it is awful. This is not the game it should have been.

Weak shooter with performance-enhancing drug theme

Common Sense Media
25 November 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a very violent first-person shooter. Players kill enemies using guns, grenades, and other weaponry. The action is also quite bloody. The single-player plot is filled with crude language. Drug use is a core element to the game, although players cannot view characters "using" the drugs via injection or other form of intake into their body.

  • Excerpt: Timing’s a funny thing in gaming world. Sometimes there’s a near mystical convergence of time, quality and luck that leads to the release of a game that marks a new console with particular levels of quality and brilliance. The PS3 has been out for some time now and has been waiting on the landmark release that would make it a must-have. Haze was meant to be that game, but sadly, it isn’t.

  • Excerpt: It doesn’t take long to realise that Haze has a problem. And at the risk of sounding obtuse, it has an embarrassing amount. At no point does the game offer anything of significant satisfaction and accomplishment in either the shamelessly brief single player campaign, the lifeless co-op mode, or even the embarrassingly substandard multiplayer facet.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Don't let the namesake of this game fool you; Haze is a game you shouldn't bother with. Free Radical and Ubisoft missed quite a few things in the quality assurance department with this one and it would seem that the project was rushed somewhere along the line. From concept to final product this game has many flaws that it never fully recuperates from.

Haze review (PS3)

HonestGamers
5 June 2008
  • Excerpt: As a Mantel soldier, you’ll feel the power of Nectar with a bird’s-eye camera shift, a display that could be described as a vacuum that’s trying to devour your world. The devoured image quickly pops out, replacing the standard game view with an enhanced look at your enemies, who are now highlighted with a yellow glow. Bullets are taken with less damage, and your shields will replenish much quicker.

  • Excerpt: Haze ticks most of the boxes on the "things a first-person shooter should have" form, but doesn't do so in a particularly interesting way.

Saving Progress
6 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Ubisoft and Free Radical should have taken the loss and just released the game without trying to up the ante, because they ended up adding only offensiveness. Yes, the PS3 is starved for exclusives, but this I could have really done without. Seriously, Turok was better then this, and that was about a native American in space killing dinosaurs with a bow and arrow.

HAZE Review (PS3)

Yet Another Review Site
11 July 2009
  • Excerpt: If you were expecting a Timesplitters game, prepare to be disappointed Many Playstation 3 exclusive First-Person Shooters such as Killzone and Resistance raised the bar for the genre and just last year, many people were looking forward to a game called HAZE. Most gamers know that this game was made by Free Radical, developers of the Timesplitters series, and most fans (including me) thought that there was going to be a Timesplitters 4 on the PS3.
  • Pros: Co-op support for up to four players makes the campaign more entertaining, Most of the weapons feel right.
  • Cons: Abysmal storytelling and voice acting squander the interesting premise, Stupid artificial “intelligence”, Bad visuals and textures, Multiplayer is uninspiring and unbalanced.

Haze

Empire Online
11 November 2008
  • Summary: While game developers were once content with aliens, monsters and monkeys, a significant number of recent hits have been touched by a sharp political edge. Drugs are the latest issue to be tackled by a big budget title, Haze allowing players to experience both sides of the anti-narcotics debate. A futuristic blaster in the Halo mould, Haze initially sees players taking control of a soldier fuelled by a drug that allows him to spot hidden enemies and predict attacks.
