Proof that poor reviews are lies
A certain well known gaming site scored Haze 4.5/10. A score that basically means a game is an unplayable mess. Clearly Haze is not. Most of you know this from the demo. The graphics are like most other PS3 games. No better no worse. Does a popular game like Rainbow Six Vegas 2 have better graphics? No. The controls work well and are fully customizable. Gunfire is spot on. Sure Mantel soldiers talk smack...they are on drugs. Nectar would be like mixing meth and steriods. How are they supposed to talk under those conditions? Bad AI. Not likely. The enemy evades gunfire and even rolls for cover. Uncharted Drakes Fortune got top marks for this. With Haze the AI is viewed as weak. Believe the game is too easy like some reviews claim? Turn off automatic aiming. Huge difference. If you let the poor reviews stop you from buying Haze, you are missing out on a really good FPS. The proof the negative reviews are lies? This certain well know site gave Lair a 4.9 'nuff said.
I read all the negative reviews surrounding Haze, but thus I still ordered it. The first hour or so playing as the Mantel trooper was almost unbearable. I put the game down and didnt touch it for a few days. I came back just to beat it since I bought it and couldnt stop playing. Once you switch sides to the Rebels the game is so addicting. The playing dead feature was a real good part of the game. Also, stealing guns and scavenging ammo just makes it that much more great. The storyline was not bad at all. These reviews are crazy. It was very intriguing and they left you with an ending they can somewhat build off of if they so choose to. The Mantel troopers do look awesome, much better than any Halo character ever has. The game provided me with a nice challenge in the latter part of the game, but it was a pretty short game. You'll beat the game two or three times before you are bored of it though. It is a solid PS3 exclusive; all PS3 owners need to add this game to their collection.
HAZE does not AMAZE
I heard haze was bad but i wanted to give it a shot. I first played and I was having fun and thought it was very good. The my fried came over and kept complaining about it being not as good as I thought. We argued but when he left my eyes had just opened. Even on a full 16 people map it was either your alone in a maze or in a blob of people. I figured out the nectar isn't even very effective. Also, the graphics are terribly generic so when you jump the physics suck and you look like your playing frogger. Plus even though I scrolled through all the menu's I couldn't even find the save button.Plus the only thing that makes repetitive battles interesting is removed 1/4 way through the story. This also encourages people to be nectar men so almost no one is a promised hand. This wannabe famous game was a failure, if they even can make a sequel it will be way behind all the other shooters by the time they fix the glitches. If this still doesn't convince you to stay away, at least rent it first...
Well its not what I expected, but it is a cool game. For all of those looking to buy it keep an open mind on how the game will be. Its not as good as Halo or COD4. But if I still had the choice I would not of bought this game, I would of saved my money for Metal Gear. The sound is ok, for some reason my speakers make a popping sound when the bass of an explosion happens on DTS, but when I have it on surrond sound it doesnt make the popping sound. There are also glitches in the game, the ps3 has even locked up on me. The AI are all retards it seems like. The playing dead works everytime, so if you are good at it you will never die. The game is too plain, its missing something. It could of been an awesome game, but it seems like they rushed to get it released. Also you would think since this game is to be the HALO killer you would think that it would be in 1080p res, but the max is 720p... I do not get why they did not make it in 1080p. Rent this game, its not worth the money...
Good concept...but terrible exicution
Well, it was a shocker, for sure. For the grand price of ***** i wasnt really suspecting anything great, but this game doesnt even look like it got the light of day compared to killzone 2, or any other 3 title. The graphics r lame, and the design of the levels leaves me with an emptiness. The surfaces r unrefined, and theres nothing much in any of the rooms. Basically its a giant map, with some roooms and doors, but theres very little in between. The concept is great...get high become a great soldier to start out the game, whats not to like, its definetly never been done before. As for you squad when your a nectar soldier, they look high, they act high, and the voices and cordination with the mouth are terrible. Despite that you look like a dang bumble bee (im sure thats not going to attract attention) the game sort of delivers in other ways such as the many ways to attack and a good amount of guns, but it still left me unimpressed.
just another FPS
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. The story mode can be two player on one console, and even after that you and a friend can connect online to team up with two others to play the story. And people still play the online (though not that many). Other than that there's not much else to the game. The vehicles handle poorly. The jump animation is looks pitiful. The guns are nothing that hasn't been seen in all the other FPS's out there as is the online mode too. I can't really recommend this game because even if you have 20 bucks to blow you could find a better FPS on the ps3 or 360 or even the wii for that matter.
A strange but COOL new turn for Ubisoft
I've been a Ubi fanboy since GRAW and Vegas came out and so I heard this new title was coming out and it was being compared to Halo. FORTUNATELY it's nothing like Halo. Other than... there being... guns. And killing things. I was on IGN and as the user reviews will surely soon reveal, the actual GAMERS out there who have played the game think the official IGN review is a complete crock. Let it be known: the graphics are not as bad as they say, although they are probably the game's weakest point. The music is KICK BUTT and the controls, gameplay and plot are all really good. In fact the plot has been my favorite part so far. I don't want to get into it, as you can read about it wherever you want if you're really interested. Or you can just get the game (at least rent it if you're a poor student like me!) A complete divergent little experiment by Ubisoft... totally different from all their other shooter games, but I really like it. Something refreshing, not just more of the same, not just "another shooter."
I went into gamestop to look for a new game to play. I was pointed to haze. I hadnt heard much about it so i bought it. I played for about 30 min and i wanted to take it back immediatly. The story line doesnt really suck you in. The graphics shouldve been way better. The game just seemed slow pace to me. The cut scenes were very poorly done. I was yawning after 10 min. There are very little controls for this game. Im used to playing CODMW2 and Killzone 2. Like i said compared to these games this game is slow paced and controls that are just too basic and simple. The voice acting just seemed too out there. Your character sounds like your 16. For the price it is a good starting shooter game for your ps3 but if you have the cash i highly suggest that you look into buying a different shooter game first. over all i give this a 4/10
If you are looking for a good game with a great storyline this is the game, even though it hasn't gotten the best of reviews its still one of the best games i've palyed. Once you get past the slow parts in the first few levels it gets really intense and really fun. I would deffinetly recommend that you play cooperative its really one of the best cooperative story modes i have played. One deffinet problemis the online matches its hard to find a good game with no bots b/c the game isn't played by alot of people. But if you do get in a complete bot free game with a bunch of players it can be alot of fun. i really recommend this game to FPS veterans and people who will spend all night trtying to beat the campain. I give this a 9/10
Just as I thought
I'll start of by saying the graphics are decent enough nothing special though. Not equal to games like Gears of War and Halo and Call of Duty 4 exc. But that's not my main problem. My main problem is the game play. It just seems so plain. It's not very exciting. And the nectar feature does little to nothing to make the combat any better. Compared to the games I mentioned before the game play on this game is quite poor. And story, well shooter games in general don't boast great storylines so nothing really new there. The co op feature is a good little feature though. It' best feature I should say. I don’t expect this game to do that well. It will crack under the weight of the hype it failed to live up too. Yet another so called Halo killer Playstation pampered that could not match it. Let alone kill it. And certainly not set a benchmark for shooter games like Halo and Gears of War did. But all in all this isn't a bad game it's just not a good game. So I'd rent it before you considering paying that hefty price tag.
