Free Radical's always bashed the right nerve with its TimeSplitters FPS series, which is why CVG are all over Haze like a rash.
New screenshots, including snaps of the shooter's co-op mode, are on this page and demanding your attention.
I looks good not zOMG ITs teh Awezomes!
Honestly... I love my PS3 more than my 360.
But I have to admit that this looks like it's in the same disappointing graphics that we saw in Halo 3.
Still buying it though because I have so much faith in Free Radical.
Co-op is gonna rock. I like how they'll let you PIP the three other players you are with online just to see how they are doing. ZOMG, this is gonna be insane. I don't care to show my excitement when the lot of you guys who are disagreeing really don't have a PS3 and won't get to play this. Tough.
LMAO! Thats worth bubbles.
Not bad but not the best it doesnt impress me at all
Lol someone disagreed with me. You should take a look at UT, COD, killzone and Crysis before hitting the disagree button.
looks mighty fine, but not 'WOW HOLY CRAP' material like Uncharted or Ratchet or Killzone 2 or MGS4 or UT3, you know what i mean?
By the way, sorry for blurting out so many names I said one, then i'm like okay I can't leave this one out etc.
But yer it looks like a solid good game, just graphically not 'WOW I THINK I JUST SHAT MY PANTS' material.
Amazing enough for me. You should probably go with some videos instead, eg:
http://www.gamersyde.com/st... Take a real close look at the plants and the density of the jungle
or maybe here: http://www.gamersyde.com/st... (2 weeks old), look at the smoke in the beginning, or the waterfall. Or the smoke of the weapon after a gun shot, when the barrel cools down. Little subtle nuances, not visible immediately, but subtle details you recognize in a "natural" environment.
Looking very sharp. Hopefully it'll turn out great.
Anone else see those not so life like canyons in the last pic? Wow, those are an eye sore for sure.
but I absolutely hate the ground, rock, and wall textures. They look like watercolor smear jobs from Hell. Everything else looks great, but those lopsided walls and surfaces cripple the overall feel. I hope there's a lot of jungle play, because the shrubbery looks fantastic.
Very unimpressive! Its got "just another boring FPS" writen all over it.
That's really the problem with Haze. If someone gets one quick look at it, they'll just dismiss it as just another shooter. It does definitely look like one. But really Haze has quite a few original gameplay innovations(2 completely different classes, nectar effects, playing dead, planting mines, making your enemies attack each other etc) and possibly one of the best stories in a shooter. I really want this game to be good, but I'll wait for reviews before buying it.
Being able to steal a gun and shoot him with it sounds AWESOME!
while it may not have the WOW factor of some other games on the horizon it certain looks good.
everything looks solid and not out of place and there must be some serious AA going on here as theres not a jaggie in sight, nice smooth edges.
Some people are bashing haze because it is ps3 exclusive now....this game is made from the people who made timesplitters....it will be good..
i'm also more in the "unimpressed" group :)
you can't judge Haze just by screenshots, infact you can't judge anything we need to see it in motion, the ingame videos that are available are very impressive those screenshots are ok but not jawdropping, then aqain static images rarely are
the games you comparing it to are pc titles and the screen you are reffering to are probably pc screen, my ps3 will never look as good as my pc and i am okay with that, that is how it has always been, however this game has to be more origional than that warm over piece of crap that is halo 3. I dont understand the major difference between halo 2 and 3. at least this game is origional as far as storyline and content goes.
I'm looking forward to this. Although the graphics don't really blow me away, they still look ok but the thing that appeals the most about Haze is that it's been done by Free Radical. It's almost certain to handle like a dream and that's the most important aspect of a game to me.
Hoping that 4 player co-op is gonna be as good as the single player and I am well and truely sold!
i knew this game look very very average a whileeeeeee ago its a halo clone but ive seen no game even ut3 which i wud hope wud beat halo vehicle controls and physic but no game atm has beat halo in the vehicle department this game will be like having a hover craft as all vehicles will move like garbage it looks like an farcry 1 but with worse vegetation/character model but better pysics
The graphics look better than Rainbow Six, and the storyline is supposed to be unique and immersive. I don't wan't to sound Wii-like, but as long as the graphics are decent the story can carry it for me.
That's not Wii-like man, that's being an intelligent gamer than a mindless review sheep. Bubbles for you sir.
.....great comment, bubbles for you! a true gamer.
well yeah it doesn't look as good as some of the other games out there but let's be honest if it were on X360 we would say it looks absolutely amazing.
if those are in-game, then holy sh1t!
but, i would like to see more to confirm it.
that IS in game. go check out some footage from gametrailers if you find them impressive.
The guys who developed this game are a joke trying to bash other better games in order to get attention screw them and their crappy halo wanabe game.
your a little angry huh...
just relax dude, CoD4 will take halos crown not Haze. but thats not to say haze will be a bad game, we dont know that yet.
but i do agree it was wrong of them to come out with some of their previous comments.
Well, my son saw the video and said in a surprise: "Hey is that Halo?"...so not to far off, I'd say.
I'm getting this game on day one. And for the people that says the graphic aren't that good just wait until the game comes out and then you'll see how good it is, it's not all about the graphics people the game play matters as well and I can tell you right now that the game play will be solid and fun.
Just look at HALO 3 the graphics are really bad(trust me the graphics are really poor I have the game just look at my profile for my gamertag) but yet the game play is still really good, me and my friends are having a great time with the multiplayer. The point I'm trying to make is that just don't judge the game by some screen shots right now, just wait until it comes out and read the reviews that it gets.
I've played this game at the Gamestop managers conference and it in all honesty it is a blatant rip-off of Halo...it should be called Hazlo
So ? Even if it is. Why can't the PS3 have its own "Halo" ? Who cares. I'd rather say that's a pretty good compliment.
Graphics are good, but they aren't the best. It doesn't make much of a difference. I have faith in this game. Free radical has yet to disapoint me. And just because the graphics aren't KZ2, or R&C, doesn't take anythign away from it. Buying it for sure this fall.
about the graphics & i dont understand how this can be a halo clone if you can steal weapons, and the nector system is unique if these two things are in there i dont give a sh3t about people saying halo clone because it will actually have something new for a change also there are two different factions not the same different color soldier vs the other same in halo. And if this is a copy i will be bitterly disappointed.
Im glad im not the only one who is unimpressed by these screen shots. This game looks too bland.
I love how ppl say this looks like halo hmmm y cause the guy has a helmet well then let me see there is a lot of game look like halo also if anything i think this game is like resistance y 2 race and they both have there own powers just like resistance but that just me this game look very cool instade of the same old same old also i think the power ranger look like halo y cause the helmet lol PPL THIS DOSE NOT LOOK ANYTHING LIKE HALO.the only thing is there both Scfi shooters. o yea also metroid looks like halo she's got a helmet on also.But i alrdy got 55$ on haze so cant wait
I've played it and Yeah it does...too bad nobody is going to care about this game this holiday season with GH3,Rock Band,COD4, PS3 release of Orange box this holiday games released is so packed that this one is easily going to get over looked
If what you said about Haze is true, then I violently disagree with your assertion that no one is going to care about this game. If this games looks and plays just like Halo, then it is going to be a AAA title, just like Halo. It'll get a 9.5 from Gamestop and it'll be a PS3 system seller. People will be playing its multiplayer forever, just like Halo.
I hope you are right. People haven't gotten enough Halo. Microsoft is under-serving the Halo market. If you are corrtect this game could be, no, this game WILL BE the undisputed system seller that Sony has been waiting for.
lol OK and i played killzone 2 and just beat MGS4 last hahhahahhahaha suuurrrrre
I think its ridiculous that you guys dont believe me when i say i've played this game, they give us access just ask any gamestop manager who went to our conference in September
a little underwhelming compared to the jungle scenes... i'm sure they'll brush it up though
The graphics aren't that good to tbh, the textures are pretty horrible and need reworking. The lighting and models also need to be improved, Halo does look better than this and so do alot of other shooters, maybe its the art style or maybe the Devs have created alot of hype for a game which looks like its just another FPS.
Have you seen the videos for it? Going off a few screenshots isn't really fair. I'd say visually its good, but not great, and a little better than halo. Halo had great outdoor envrionments, but the indoors looked like crap, especially the second chapter in the old base.
The real question is whether the gameplay and online multiplayer in haze will measure up to halo, and I highly doubt that it will. Halo has the best console multiplayer ever and will be damn near impossible to top.
is co-op mode going to be 4 player online like halo or splitscreen?
oh and for me this game has better graphics than halo 3
That's PS3 for those of you who no comprende.
Will surprise a lot of people. This game will be a 9-10/10 game. since Free Radical is at the helm, this game has potential written all over it. Now is EVERY shooter is going to be compared to Halo?? Halo was not the first real good FPS on a console (it's online multiplayer functionality is what made it great). Remember Golden Eye, Timesplitters, Perfect Dark?? All those came before Halos time and all were great. Guess what......2 of those games came from Free Radical.
YEA IT HAS 4 PLAYER CO OP ONLINE FOR THE STORY MODE. THIS CAME OUT A LONG TIME AGO BEFORE HALO SAID IT WOULD HAVE THE 4 CO OP. AND I VE PLAYED HALO 1,2, AND 3, AN I WAS DISS APPONTED I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WOULD HAVE A BETTER ENDING, BUT PLAYING ONLINE TAKES FOR EVERY TO GET A GAME, AND THE GRAPH WAS OK. CANT WAIT FOR COD 4 AND HAZE, I WILL HAVE BOTH.
OH YEA THIS GAME IS GOING TO GET A 8.5 RATING I DONT THINK ANY GAME THE PS3 HAS OR WILL GET A 9.5 TO 10, COUSE OF ALL THE PAYING OFF MS DOES
Are you kidding? this game is like 2 generations ahead of halo 2.1.
anything looks better then halo 2.1 pls drop it its an overated POS any real gamer knows that.
about haze well without a doubt the best fps this year no doubt.
I think the problem (in part) is that these screenshots look like they've been ripped from video involving a lot of motion, so the graphics might not be as bad when the game is idle. However, it looks good, but not unbelievably good.
They will no doubt do wonders with this game. This game will run as smooth as butter. The graphics will no doubt be as good or better then Halo 3.
I will agree that the time splitters games were good but they were multi-platform games that never really broke out and made a statement in the FPS genre, which is why i think it would get over looked. If Sony was smart they would throw money at this thing like crazy bc at this point most people dont even know it exists
ahead of Halo 3 in graphics. and it looks food as hell none the less i cant wait to play it promises to be great, and it's shaping up well.
halo3 wannabe bye ...
uhh... maybe I am less picky than you guys but i think it looks just fine.
Looks like a higher resolution Xbox 1 game rather than a graphical showcase. Am I the only one that doesn't think it looks that good? Before someone types something stupid and fanboyish I am interested in the game. I don't think it looks nearly on par with some of the other PS3 and 360 titles:( Gameplay over graphics win me over every time (aka Halo 3). :-)
