Amazon.co.uk Review

One of the reasons Rare are such a controversial developer nowadays (apart from the whole Nintendo selling them to Microsoft thing) is the fact that a lot of people associated with GoldenEye and Perfect Dark left the company a long time ago. Many of them ended up at Free Radical Design, where they created the love-it-or-loathe-it TimeSpliters series and the underappreciated Second Sight. Haze ditches the stylised look of their older games though, with a game set in a future world dominated by mega global corporation Mantel - where you’re cast as one of their soldiers fighting rebels in South America.

Like all fictional global corporations Mantel is up to no good and it turns out their drug NECTAR is doing more than just making you a super soldier with increased speed, strength and accuracy. Highlighting enemies under cover from you, as well as grenades and bobby traps is all very good but the downside is it also turns you (and your teammates) psychotic if you use it too much. Worse it seems to sanitise the world around you, making corpses invisible and even obscuring the true nature of the landscape around you…

Rebel soldiers are able to take advantage of the reality bending powers of NECTAR, such as playing dead to regain their health or using a special "weapons steal" move to make up for their lack of hardware (both of which moves work great in multiplayer). With arguably the most interesting storyline in any current first person shooter and a custom made graphics engine Haze’s future looks crystal clear.

3.0 out of 5 stars All mouth and no trousers 30 May 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Once again, PS3 players have been sent a curve ball. Free Radicals previous efforts have all offered something almost spectacular, so hopes were very high. Almost every magazine informed us about the plot, the graphics, the game modes and the abundance of other features we were to be treated to. However, it seems it was all hype. Comparison will be made to other platforms exclusives and other First Person Shooters in general. So lets compare exclusives first. I have played Halo on the M$ Xbox and found it to be acceptable at best and dull at worst. This offering on the PS3 is no better, but not really any worse either.
Maybe we have all been blinded by the beauty and majesty of Call of Duty 4, a multi-platform offering. This remains, in my view, the most complete FPS avaiable. Many features that you take for granted in CoD4 are absent from Haze. There is no ability to sprint, meaning you have to amble across firelines, it never feels as though the team are backing you up, weapon accuracy seems erratic at best and there is only a limited number of multiplayer modes. Visually the game is marginally better then Resistance, but that was a launch game, so 18 months down the line, you would expect significant improvements both in the graphics and the AI. Sadly, despite all the delays and promises, the game still lacks polish. My initial reaction at launch said "steer clear", but I went against my better judgement expecting a glorious, exclusive PS3 game. Maybe next time I will trust my instincts and not the hype. I suggest you do the same. If you want a FPS, get CoD4. If you want another FPS, wait for Resistance 2. But please, don't think this will be the mind-blowing experience we were told it would be. As I said before, it's simply an average FPS that has no stand-out features.

2.0 out of 5 stars This game has surely been released unfinished. 2 Jun. 2008
By Memly
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I cant believe this is a title that Sony want to market as a PS3 saviour.

I completed this game within a few hours, it's very short...and very dull.
The actual premise seems quite a good one and I do like story based FPS, but this undelivers in so many ways.
Having recently bought a PS3 after selling my 360, I was looking forward to the exclusive titles due out soon. Drakes Fortune was amazing, so I thought that Haze would be visually stunning with a firm story and a solid multiplayer too.
I had watched a programme about Haze on satellite a while back and thought it was going to be immense. I steered clear of any reviews and I was aware of the previous titles the programmers had been involved in.
Once I started playing, I was completely underwhelmed by the graphics, they were simply dull. Textures were uninteresting; the passing jungle was blurry with no definition... it looked very shabby.
The gameplay wasnt up to much either; enemies seemed to be just sitting and waiting for you; your own team gets in the way all the time; if you leave them behind they miraculously appear from midair right infront of you! How very amatuerish for a game with this much investment.
Quite often when I got killed by Mantel the last save would loadup placing my character suspended in midair as the ground had disappeared.
When playing against Mantel the rebels shout the same annoying phrase every couple of seconds "remember your promise to Merrino" god it was infuriating!
Even the set pieces were uninspiring. A waste of good money.
It gets 2 stars because hidden behind all the shabby programming a half decent game exists, but in no way shape or form is this a next generation game. Save your money, no doubt the shops will already be flooded by second hand games, but certainly dont pay full price for it.
Lets hope MGS takes advantage of the power available inside the PS3.

2.0 out of 5 stars How the mighty have fallen 1 Aug. 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
"Timesplitters 2" is great fun. "Timesplitters Future Perfect" is sublime (anyone who has played it must surely have enjoyed the more comic moments, but the gameplay in my opinion is excellent). And "Haze"?...well, the trailer was brilliant. I expected something that would rival "Halo 2" (or 3) and was sorely disappointed. It isn't appalling, but it has an extremely brief campaign, is too linear, the vehicles are based on some sort of "treacle-physics" engine, and there was a serious risk that I would break my screen every time I heard the shout "Remember your promise to Merino"...arrrgh...STFU!

(I have played through "God of War" again - which, for a PS2 title is awesome - to rinse the memory of "Haze".)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the negative reviews 5 Jun. 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Some of these reviewers seem to think they are working for IGN and this is the latest COD or Assassins Creed

This is not the greatest game of all time but for this price if you expect that then your standards are far too high

This is a middle of the range game and they are a dying art, most of the games are either the blockbuster games like COD or the small indy games like Limbo, this was a well made middle level FPS and it should be judge as such.

This is a VERY fun game, i enjoyed playing every second of it, the cop op campain was the best I've played on the PS3 and the multiplayer both online and LAN is excellent with some unique momments.

Well worth buying!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars 2008's Biggest Disappointment 22 Jun. 2008
By Stevie G VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Early previews of Haze, (the once promising but heavily delayed PS3 exclusive) seemed to give away all its secrets. Sadly there are no twists or surprises for anyone that has paid attention to Hazes excessive previews. The much publicised defection to the rebels; Promise Hand would have been far more enjoyable without prior knowledge. The twists following are non-existent, with only a discovery in a cargo container providing any highlight for lead Shane Carpenter.

From the opening moment, Hazes visuals are disappointingly shoddy; the jungles look weak, especially when compared to Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. Its laughable this is the best Free Radical could manage. There is nothing here, apart from a few fancy, ultimately pointless effects that couldn't have been done on the previous generation. Animation is also a joke, especially when reviving a fallen comrade. Bodies also levitate in mid air. Vehicle sections are just awful, so broken they should have been left out entirely. In fact only the shooting is solid throughout; and in parts above average. But surely this is to be expected from the makers of TimeSplitters. Strangely, Haze doesent have a very large weapon selection.

The whole game would be seamless if it wasn't for split second blackouts that occur after every "cut scene". This is one of Hazes most frustrating elements and clearly used to hide loading times. Rather than use cut scenes to set up the story, Haze insists on telling every scrap of narrative from Shane Carpenters eyes. This can work, as Half Life 2 proved. But the plot is clunky and amateurish at best, the half second blackouts completely ruining any immersion this approach so desperately tries to create. There are too many moments where a cut scene would have worked better.
