Ever since it was announced as a timed exclusive for the PS3, all eyes have been on Free Radical's Haze. What was it exactly about the game that compelled Sony to want it released on the PS3 ahead of any other platforms? Haze was playable for the very first time at Ubisoft's Leipzig Games Convention booth and 1UP attempted to find out exactly that.
It's hard to say that it's entirely evident that Haze will be the triple-A title that Sony is looking for. It seems a bit rough around the edges (the A.I. needs some work, too) and 1UP just haven't seen enough yet to adequately judge. But the potential for Haze to be something special is certainly there, especially when taking into account the jungle area. Who knows? Maybe this will be the game to finally elevate Free Radical from "good" to "great" in terms of its developer status. God knows, they've certainly worked for it.
