Blend Games Preview: Haze

Blend Games writes: "Haze is nearing its launch window, and the game is looking pretty tight at the moment. But before you go getting your palms all sweaty and sticky over the upcoming playable co-op demo, you might want to whet your thoughts with a quick preview of the game. Running on the new Conspire AI engine (allowing enemies to strategically react to players on the fly) and featuring streamlined, action-packed gameplay from start to finish, Haze is definitely a next-gen gamer's game.

Graphically, Free Radical has set out to establish a much more realistic feel for Haze, rather than the cartoony look that was employed for TimeSplitters. However, graphics just aren't for eye-candy in Haze, it plays a significant part in how the story unfolds, literally. Players will start the game out as MantelCorp Soldiers, experiencing the early missions from a video game standpoint due to the human enhancing drug, Nectar: Bodies fade from view, there's no blood and everything war-related is censored. The drug, in the game, also allows players a heightened sense of reality, allowing them to exercise more damage with melee attacks and to see enemies more clearly, among other things. In essence Nectar is like the ultimate steroid...including full-on psychotic freak-outs if you take too much."

But Yes.. bring forth ze demo! I wouldn't have such a bad feeling if the dev team didn't overhype it.

Most of the time, a demo comes out if a company is confident in their product.

However, there are some times when a demo is bought out for crappy games (blacksite area 51 and Turok)

I've been anticipating this game since I played the playable demo at game expo last year although not as much as GTA IV. I think the Nectar is a cool idea and a final demo are gladly welcome. if it turns out to be great, I'll get one.

I think I'll be getting the game no matter what. I'm interested in the story of it and how things end up. I'm guessing there'll be a sequel.

LeonSKennedy4Life3894d ago

I'm interested in the multi-player...
