Summary: what a cheesy title for my review eh? ^_^ Seriously though, Haze was an early title for the PS3 and it shows requiring a hefty install size for really not much performance. The game was met with a lot of hate though and after it dropped considerably in price I had to see it for myself. I played this game mainly co-op with my friend (that's right this game has co-op!
Summary: I had fun playing this game but truthfully this game was not the "halo killer" that it was deemed to be. Haze is fun to play but theres a very limited weapons selection (VERY limited) and the controls will take some getting used to but still aren't that great. The campaign story is the saving grace for this game because while mechanical the characters are pretty good mainly because of the weird sort-of voice acting. I'd give this game a rental.
Summary: Haze is a game that tries to be like Halo for the ps3 and ends up being nothing special. The story would be above average had the back of the box not spoiled a crucial plot twist-ish point. There are a few characters in the game that might annoy some (your initial squad mates). The graphics in this game aren't good but they aren't bad either. Heck that could be said about, well, everything in this game except one feature that i will admit is cool.
Summary: Haze once deemed the "Halo Killer" was one of the most anticipated games to exclusively hit PS3. But after playing Haze there is absolutely no similarities between the two, except that they both start with the letter "H." However, it's not to say the game is putrid. While everyone expected something extraordinary, the trailer and the actual game were completely two different things. Haze, in reality, is just your plain generic FPS game.
Summary: Let's try to sum this game up effectively. The setup is pretty straightfoward, you're a trooper working for Mantel,a corporation who's mission is to bring peace to foreign lands. Like all Mantel troopers,you rely on a pharmacutical drug called "Nectar" which gives you improved sight/healing/confidence and strength. The story isn't great,but it's not bad either. Enemy A.I. is viscious,but you'll find your firendly A.I. walking straight into bullets.
Summary: This game was ok, I had some fun with the Jungle levels. I would not call it a bad game. I think expectations were so high though that some people could not help but be disappointed by it. I don't think I would have been happy paying Full price on this game. But at 27.99 it was worth it. Some of the level design is unique and fun. The weapons feel good. I would say it is a bit short, but the multi-player has some fun aspects.
Conclusion: Disappointing. Elements of promise scattering throughout a poor game. The shooting component is very solid as one would expect from free radical design but there is practically no atmosphere to compell the player to continue through the story. This is somewhat alleviated when playing co-operatively especially with 4 friends and the online deathmatch really highlight the excellent controls and provide a glimpse of what the game could have been like.
