    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.

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.

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.

It's been a long time waiting for Free Radical's new first person shooter, Haze. After plenty of delays and a whole lot of hype, has it lived up to the reputation that Timespiltters has built for this development team?
Sadly, it really hasn't. There are many small and large disappointments to be had when playing through Haze.

Haze's storyline was revealed a long time ago, so I'll keep this short. Shane Carpenter joins Mantel, a private military organization, hoping to make a difference, to fight the good fight. You notice quickly however that he's not fitting in well with the other Mantel troopers and seems to disagree with a lot of what they're doing. Fact is everyone apart from Shane is arrogant and trigger happy thanks to their supplementary drug, Nectar.
So a few crazy events after another and we see our hero defecting sides against Mantel, fighting for the `real' good guys. You'd think that would mean that people would start being nice to you, but your leader, some guy named `skin coat', is constantly screaming at you. It's annoying. It seems like no one likes Shane Carpenter, and this ends up with you not liking him much either. In fact, he's a bit of a wimp, always complaining about something, and then being screamed at for it by someone else.
Aside from your wimpy main character however, the story of the game does play out pretty well, with a just above average dialogue (although badly performed), that keeps you interested in the main campaign.
Problem is, the campaign is about 6 hours long. I finished it in one sit-through and was definitely disappointed with the length. It's definitely too short and too easy.
Another of the disappointments of Haze is the multiplayer.
