talkplaystation has played the demo that is currently on the Playstation Store and has posted a short initial review with some screenshots.
They gave a demo a score? Still its the Drop in/drop out Co-op and Story line which have this game sold for me, also it being a FRD game it will haev great multiplayer
It's an initial review (aka- first impression) of a demo. That's pretty useless.
I played a bit of the single player campaign, and it is good but not great. It reminds me of Turok, except much better, but in a way Turok was better because the leaves moved when you walk into them, that doesn't happen in this. On the other hand, nice to see they kept R1 as the main fire button, the gameplay itself is pretty good and the guns etc feel effective unlike in Turok. I would expect the online to be much better than the single player hopefully.
Screen shots? Photo's of his TV.
they may not be screen shots, but the pictures look good. Well looks like I'm going to enjoy the demo if it comes to the U.S. Store

This game sounds bad ass at it's best and I'm glad that I didn't doubt this game at all. The genius has spoken.
All in all. i'd say a rough estimate of 8.8 overall score. Very promising and should be a great game.
Really is a great game, I'm definitely picking it up, the graphics could use an over haul but beggers can't be choosers especially since the gameplay is great.
but them Pics do look good. It's hard getting good pics on LCD HDTVs.
...Because there are no games for the DelayStation III.
Really your one to talk, Xbox 360 has no games till November, and then no games after november till late 2009.
thats true, but why is the only good games on xbox shooters? can some one say variety? i know bill gates cant
RROD go play RROD on your TRASH BOX 3 FOX ME
hey moron i own both and have way more games on ps3. when where talking about exlusives only ps3 has good exlusives. and 360 has a JOKE of a lineup this year. u seen ps3 tho? wow. also ps has always had soooooo much wonderfull variety. 360 is basicly all alien shooters, yawn much?
I think the guy have it the other way around.
I take it you have a faulty X-Box then? There are loads of great games on PS3. But then, you've probably never played Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, Motorstorm, Warhawk, Metal Gear Online Beta etc.? And that's just the exclusives. Add Oblivion and GTAIV and you have the reason I get very little work done. I've got over 35 games I consider classics I wouldn't trade/sell. And there are tons of games on ther horizon too! Baboons like you, CyberSentinel, are the reason I'm glad I'm part of a more mature, informed gaming base. Enjoy your X-box.
People like you...I shake my head at. Everyone was talking about the game and how it's interesting and you had to come and say something as stupid, selfish, pathetic, and moronic as that. That is WHY I cannot stand you 360 cowards. You like to hide behind your system and take cheap pot shots at the PS3. That's why you're always insulted. I honestly hope your system RROD's when Gears of War 2 comes out. Seriously.
"Because there are no games" x-kiddies would know all about what thats like...
I've just tried it breifly there, but does anyone else think it looks really soft and not very HD? textures are terrible too.
Textures are wonky, there are alot of High RES textures, but they don't look that way I dunno what to say, the graphics could use a good push other wise I'm having a ton of fun playing the game.
Boy thats a relief, unlike some other online demos (I'm looking at you Lost Planet.) Its pathetic when you have to patch a demo and it still barely works.
IDK I played it its decent I wish it was a multiplayer demo that wouldve really shown if its going to be good or not. Based completely on the demo I give it a 7 but its a demo...
I agree, 8 out of 10 is pushing it for graphics. I have a 40" HDTV with a beautiful picture but the graphics were rough mos def not pushing next gen graphics, but solid game-play and a good story line, it is a buy. I think the multi-player is going to be the hot-spot.
My thoughts exactly. The gameply was great as was the voice acting, but the graphics did not blow me away. I wasn't like "this is next gen" the demo was alot of fun and the gameplay was smooth. I wonder if they will tweak the final game to add little touches like the leaves moving and what not. I think I've been spoiled by the visuals and physics of Uncharted...
honestly expected Haze to be bad but I guess the delays have payed off. I hope it will get a better score on its launch. After all it's just a demo.
XBOTS PISSOFF!!!!! got no exclusives comin your way so your tryin to trash talk ours and p.s gears aint a exclusive a can get dat on ma pc lmao!!!
Totaly awesome game! Just love the smooth gameplay and perfect control. A must buy for me. I hope the story is as good..
and i thought it would have been much better considering the long delay time. i don't think im going to pick this one up...
what was wrong with the demo that turned u away. Do you like fps games? Did the theme, gameplay, or graphics suk. give some feedback man
Reviewing a DEMO? retarded. If they're dunno do that it shouldnt got towards Haze's final score on N4G
man im getting pumped for this and im stuck at work blah this suks
Controlls - very good coded, its smooth and responsive gameplay - nectar is a cool feature framerate - extreme smooth graphics textures effects - good quality infact onpaar with halo3 coop - awesome drop in drop out coop 4 player what else you want
what a crap review. i hate to be over ctitcal as it is a demo but hes saying, and i quote "During my time of playing i didn’t notice any jaggies or blury graphics in the background" he must have been playing a different demo than i was. The helmet you guy is wearing has jaggies ffs! the whole game is blurry, looks like standard def being upscaled rather poorly. "Oh and for those that want to know Haze runs at 720p max, it won’t run at 1080p" It doesnt even run at 720p, not even close, and id put cash on that. He may aswell give the end cutscene a 9/10, hes obviously blinded by his love of everything Sony. Well i'm not, you cant blame the devs for games looking sh!t, it MUST be the PS3. Halo 3 makes Haze look like a little boy. apart from the visuals tho, it seems like a decent game.
LOL, what did you buy your HDTV from the bargain bin? @ bottom First its from 2005, second its DLP, no shіt it's blurry.
heres my tv. http://www.homecinemachoice... the best dlp tv avaliable in the uk.
it's unfortunate your from the UK especially with your analogy of Halo3, HAZE and a little boy, what this has to do with anything whatsoever is baffling You give the rest of us a bad name, just for the record HAZE looks very good on my 42inch plasma. Infact i am having a hard time believing if you have actually played the demo or your just out to spam the thread
Rofl, Sorry but I worked in retail when that TV was "new" and that T.V. has a pretty awful picture. Even regular old Star Wars looked better on the Panasonic LCD projection that sat right next to it. Edit: +1 TV Fanboy disagree. I win. Edit @ Below: I disagree with the reviews written THREE years ago, yep. I also stick by my assessment of entire clusters of stars completely disappearing on that DLP when they were clearly visible on the LCD. LCD projection will always show more detail and cleaner movement than any DLP projection using a color wheel. It's just fact. Although, three chip DLP systems *will* smoke LCD any day of the week. Too bad they never made it to retail before flat panels stole the market :). Also, to assume that TV's haven't gotten better in three years (My LCD is 1080p, your DLP is 720p with a COLOR WHEEL) is asinine. Edit @ Firestorm: I know how to calibrate T.V.'s and came up with those results directly after calibrating BOTH T.V.'s. Thanks. Edit @ Firestorm: I never said the game looked amazing. Not once. I simply said that that particular T.V. looks awful compared to a lot of other T.V.'s out there. Bad T.V.s and bad settings can make *any* game look bad. That is my point, and it would be silly to argue otherwise.
yeah right, an lcd projection looked better than one of the best dlp rear pros. your saying every professional review of the tv is wrong? and i have played through the demo, it played decent, im just disagreeing about the 8/10 for graphics thats all. looked nowhere near hd. sorry but it doesnt, and my mate and his lcd tv ageees with me.
I agree with beard tm. Graphics are pants. You'd have to be blind to beleive this game looks good in any way. @ retail boy..... what you say means nothing, everyone knows that tv's are never set up correctly in shops. Im always amazed at how awful hi end plasma and lcds look in comet & currys. You can walk in and see a high end bravia or samsung looking bad compared to some little matsui effort @ Scerick AGAIN ... of course TV's have got better, but that doesn't change the fact that HAZE is sh!t looking. If you can calibrate a tv to make that game look sharp, I'll give you a Blue Peter badge.
my mate with a awesome-o 500000 tv says it looks like buuutter!! see its easy to do that!
Also, to assume that TV's haven't gotten better in three years (My LCD is 1080p, your DLP is 720p with a COLOR WHEEL) is asinine. RIGHT THERE is where you fail, in three places: 1. implying that resolution is the most important aspect regarding picture quality. 2. Spelling COLOUR as color and 3. Being American. @scerick: You never mentioned the model of your 1080p tv? for all i know its a cheapo nasty wallmart effort.
My T.V. can reproduce color more effectively than yours. My T.V. can reproduce fast movement clearer than yours. My T.V. can display higher resolutions than yours. My T.V. doesn't have the "rainbow" effect like yours. Color is spelled color: http://dictionary.reference... I'm proud I'm an American. We're a great country full of a lot of good people. We're just under some bad leadership, but every country has their problems :). Edit @ above: The model hardly matters because my statements apply to most of the "Walmart efforts" anyway, but here it is: http://www.bestbuy.com/site... Edit @ Below: I live in Utah and lived in California for most of my life. We say it kind of like K-uh-ler. I'm not really good with phonetics so that may come out wrong on your end LOL.
" My T.V. doesn't have the "rainbow" effect like yours. " He's got you there. I remember my head nearly exploded when we where watching the matrix. However, It's defo better than average Joes TV and I must agree about the colour/ color thing...really dont know who thought it was a good idea to change it, considering the way it's pronounced. http://dictionary.cambridge... Although maybe it makes sense for the way you guys pronounce it.
@beardtm Just stop it - your making the rest of Brits look stupid. Apologies to anyone else getting tired of this puerile jingoist. ...and for the record, that TV is bloody awful and certainly nothing to 'show off about'. TV has certainly come a long way since that kind of soft focused lack of contrast set could command a decent review, and plenty of people reading this will have far superior set to yours, including myself with my x3500 bravia (xbr4 in the states.) As for the game - it looks fine in shots to me, but I've yet to download it, so maybe its worse 'in the flesh'! :)
it looks like free radical are going to deliver, played through the demo twice now and it's superb. Perfect control, flawless framerate and superb weapons it feels like a cross between farcry and halo. It's also very good graphically, it's a definite purchase, you can access your friends list send xmb messages etc so all in all the demo has sold the game to me. I am also very confident the multiplayer is going to be superb afterall this is free radical we are talking about Good Stuff
It will be dood. They better give this game no less than 10/10 out of graphics. Because Halo 2.5 didnt even look as good as this game.
The media isn't being paid off to give Haze a perfect score, unlike Halo.
This is a first time I see some people actually gave out score for a demo but I understand. People've been waiting for this demo for a while now so they're really excited to play this game.
this isnt a review i dont think, its just in review format. its good article though. the graphics look sexy on my 52inch hdtv, crisp as anything, you need to sit quite some distance.
I shall play this while eating eggs benedict at around 11:30am.
Im gona be honest and say im not paying money towards this game, its graphics are boring and the whole thing feels like far cry with a few tacked on features, the dialouge and voice acting of the soldiers was totally pathetic. The A.I. was dumb from both team mates and rebel enemies and the game was just run and gun with no thought about tactics or strategy involved at all. my opinion though, il just keep my money for the MGS4 specail edition. EDIT: I will rent the game, play co-op with friends and try out online.
Why do all games that have squads always have an arrogant annoying redneck? The multiplayer looks promising though... I'll just wait for the final reviews.
Well I would call: Haze Grid Metal Gear Solid 4 Battlefield: Bad Company WipeOut HD Soulcalibur IV Mercenaries 2: World in Flames Gradius PS3 Interstellar Marines Bionic Commando Rearmed Siren: Blood Curse Buzz Quiz TV Aliens: Colonial Marines Tekken 6 LittleBigPlanet Socom Confrontation Restistance 2 Ferrari Challenge No games, and thats just 2008.
4 player split screen drop in and out like warhawk...
I love fps. the game just is not what i expected. the graphics could be better, and it could have been longer hey everybody has there own opinion .. play the demo for yourself you may like it. i was not much impressed .. ill wait for my friends to buy it and see what they say about the final version.
im just eager to hear whats up with haze because im stuck at work and cant check it out for myself :(
A game that will make me play my ps3 online. I wasnt sure about this game but now im gettin it!
i've allways said the game deserves 8/10 i'm glad this game is ps3 exclusive we don't need this crap game on xbox360
I'm glad you're a XBOT
I no thank god hes a xbot imagine how embarrasing it wudhv been if he was wiv us. God even the thought of it makes me want to throw up lol!!
so all the games on the 360 that were rated an 8 are crap as well? if so, thats alot of crap.
I thought this was another AAA sony exclusive. All that time and hype from sony boys. Let down again.
Hmm, too bad you haven't even played it, it's a demo dumbass. Bah why bother explaining it to you, you've been one of the dumbest fυckin' people on N4G since your arrival.
Such is the life of a jealous xbot these days. He's just mad this isn't multi platform as originally planned Let Down?? are you kidding me? Let me tell you about a let down. I'm playing team fortress 2 from the orange box back in march. It was friday, hadn't played my games all that week till that friday, and I had NOTHING to worry about the whole weekend. I turn on my machine, played for no more than half an hour then I get the LEGENDARY RROD. When I call customer service they tell me I have to send it to them. They send me the postage box and everything so I'm thinking to myself "gee MS customer service isn't as bad as they claim". But alas, I'm STILL waiting for my system to get back. THAT is a let down.
I've just played the demo & i didn't like it at all. But i'm not so into games that your in a forest(Like Crysis) But i know that your only play like maby 1 or 2 stage's in a forest/Jungle,so i can't judge yet.
i havnt played the demo yet But to be honest i wasnt so hyped up about this game. I just have a feeling that somehow ubi will mess up on it. I dont think the actual review for it will be in the 9 region im seeing mybe 8-8.5
Ubi is only publishing. Free Radical is designing and responsible for any f-ups.
