A New Kind of Shooter

It's relatively common, even expected, for a movie or book to emotionally engage us, but arguably a foreign feature to gaming. This may not be the most obvious starting point for a look at Haze, Free Radical's showpiece all-format FPS: but Haze may just be a new starting point for the FPS and action games in general.

“the comparisons to games like Crysis and Far Cry – well, Haze is completely different to either of those. We have a fantastic team of artists and our lead artist is one of the best in the world. And because of that, our engine is geared towards the artistic vision rather than a ticklist of features, and that’s something we’re very proud of.”

Nice jabb.
Its looks good, gonna see how it pans out.

Hope it turns out as deep and mature as they say. We need more games with more than pretty visuals and kool gameplay. Haze should be a serious real game. This is gameing as art.

I agree. But there's always the danger of over-hyping and setting the bar too high. If they talk it up without delivering they'll fail, even if the game is well done. Non-Launch titles don't sell very well with review numbers in the 8's. I hope that this isn't just some marketing B.S.

Every game gets hyped up, we do it. We = are only dissapointing ourselfs. When the game comes out then will talk.

this game looks ok
visually it looks good
but gameplay come on its just another run of the mill fps
nothing special
yes you get necter
but come on its just another excuse to F*up you HUD
so you can run faster see thru trees and hear your squad yell at your ass because there dumbass runs into your grenades
its like halo and far cry had sex
you all know im right

I hope it really will turn out the way they say it will, because when I think of FPS games, and I am sure there are many people who also think the same thing, is that every FPS game is about shooting and blowing things up.

Also from what we know of the story and the world it is set in almost sounds like a darker version of Robocop.
