Austrian Website eLhabib has the first 9 minutes of Gameplay from HAZE. Check the source for the Video!
Video gave me a headache with all the stuttering it did...I really hope the game itself doesn't do that.
im not gunna get this now. I was one of the people who defended it when people complained about delays but now I'm not so convinced free radical used that time wisely...
at least this video puts this game in AA level not AAA level!! so who ever wants to get it get it to have some nice fun and dont expect the power of ps3 or an amazing achievements in shooter genre games! but it can be cool to kill the time till MGS4 arrives if someone have enough money!
I'm sure it was insane cause, no matter how much you hate HAZE, I'm sure you feel deep inside you that it did seem like over kill. Like they were deliberatly trying to make sure gamers don't buy or even rent the game.
The more I see of this game the more I just want to play COD4! This is just a blah blah shooter to me. After playing the demo I'm not even interested in the game anymore. The animation isnt that great and the graphics arent that great either.
So you judge a game just one graphics and not gameplay? Okay then.
i guess you can play some cartoon animations fairly well from what you judge if a game is good or not... and hey no game play right
It does not skip like that, that is the stream. I can tell you it is an above average shooter. around 8-9/10 no where near a 4.5/10. Ign is smoking crack because they gave the same rating to the conflict:ops game a few months ago and that game was hardly playable. Again like halo the real game is online it is smooth and fast and play is really great. but the campaign is good too just too much story in the game. I think aot of gta4 and cod4 players will be buying it once they play the online game. I still haven't beat the campaign yet on cod4 or gta4 I have palyed a crapload of days online though.
I hear what you're saying man. And I'll be grabbin this game this afternoon. But the thing is, people judged this game without EVER getting their hands on even the demo. They'd rather take some "professional" reviewers words as the voice of God and roll with it. But what can ya do? Such are the ways of sheep lol
I agree with you and the funny thing is when Halo 3 finally had game play it looked the same no one said anything. Now with it released most of the online features were in the previous Halo, Halo 2. So with IGN making comments like graphics, soldiers making comments during game play, and same horn for every vehicle is so wierd, especially the horn. What does it matter it isn't a racing game and most of the compliants are in Halo 3 as well. Anyways I don't go by reviews 100% I still think for my own and read between the bull they published.
You have a good point. I highly doubt this game is as bad as they say it is at IGN.
too much storyline?
"So you judge a game just one graphics and not gameplay? Okay then" That goes for 90% of people who have been hyping KZ2 when everbody knows how dissapointing Guerilla have been in the past. Youre right graphics DO NOT make a good game proof = kILLZONE 1 I pick gameplay over graphics
Killzone got 4/5 on X-Play and on an average a 7.5/10 which isn't bad. I don't get it a 7.5 sucks so does a 5.0 mean? Generally speaking a 5.0 should still be a buy since it's a 3/5 making it an average game. anything below 5.0/3 isn't worth a buy. The game sites that use the scale of 1-10 and with the .1 system don't use the whole scale. Look at all the sports titles most of them should be getting 5.0/3 but most of them get 8.9 or 9.0 for the same game. All I'm saying most sites don't use the scale properly especially when they cosider a game a buy. X-Play is good with their scale you don't always see 5s unless it's needed or 4s. You'll see a lot of 3s and anything lower means the game is broken. In this review he didn't even mention the controls hint, hint it's more of a rant. A good game is Turok it isn't beautiful but the game play is just fun o,ya it got around the same score as Killzone. Go figure.
...world where developers peddle smut they call games and dress them up in shiny new shoes from Payless Shoes that are 5 sizes to small. I was born into a world where if you buy this crap developers will continue to shovel this $h*t it harder then a crack head trying to score that next hit...I born in 2008. LAWD forgive them for they know not what they do.
not cuz of how it looks.. but how bad it plays..... then i went to go read the ign review... that made me feel better. 4.5
that did not look good but, i think is better than a 4.5 score.
The voice acting is awful! That is the thing that bothers me the most. Shane sounds like some prissy teenager not a soldier.
as it installs to the HDD
Okay... I saw enough of that video. The GFX look better than what I saw in the demo - as far as you can base that on a YouTube quality video, though - but something is just wrong. I can forgive the dialogue, hell, the are all high as s*** on nectar, but the animations are miserable. If you don't believe me, look around 5:40 when the guy without helmet goes to the chopper. He turns without moving his feet. To Free Radical: This is 2008, people move their feet when turning and it IS possible to have that animation, countless games already do. As far as I can say, I won't buy the game for the full price. I will probably get it when I can find a cheap sub 30 bucks. Until then I will read user reviews to see if that was just one mistake or if the game is full of them (I hope the first one to be true).
Yikes I didn't catch that. Good find, that is pretty weak.
Shame they forgot to add shadows to all objects, look at the imposed fence around the carrier, no shadows :(
add me people and we can do some co op tomorrow. psn blackness
I'm adding you when I get it this afternoon.
crap graphics technical glitches and 576p resolution only possible on ps3
RROD Overhyped games Greedy Corporation. Only on the 360.
don't forget overpriced accessories
Oh yeah, that too.
It's funny Juuken that you mention "overhyped" games. You just going to ignore the fact that HAZE was overhyped? I mean, this IS an article attached to the game. Let me guess. It's all a conspiracy led by Microsoft. They somehow sabotaged the development of the game and threw loads of cash around while dancing, in exchange for the devs to make it flop. You been smokin' that grass? It'll do that to you.
I never overhyped Haze dem0n. I knew it wouldn't get anything higher than an 8 or a 9. But I still believe IGN was too harsh on it. They either didn't play this game properly or they overlooked some of the things that could have made it interesting. And yes the game was overhyped, but this isn't new. GTAIV was hyped to DEATH. That game should have gotten a 9.5 at least and not a perfect ten. Everyone overhypes games-it's nothing new. Microsoft is a very corrupt corporation so I could see that happening. They threatened even Yahoo for that matter because they wanted to take over even that. I wouldn't be surprised if they were paying off developers to rate their games good while the PS3 is rated badly. You and your kind fail once more. I shall wait for MGS4 because that game will be one of the best things that happened on the PS3.
The only two games that I never sold for my PS3 would be Uncharted and Ratchet. I didn't care for any other titles except Motorstorm but the loading killed it. Of course I haven't played every PS3 game, just the main exclusives. I hope to God MGS4 amazes or I'm done with the PS3. It's one thing to not buy a console because of the lack of reliability in hardware, it's the same to not buy one because of the lack of software reliability. I never said you overhyped it. It was an overhyped Sony game in general. Basically what you said about 360 games.
I won't be selling my PS3. I have faith that Sony will deliver high quality games in the end. I would rather keep something that's reliable than to get something that's unreliable for the sake of games. If you want to sell your PS3 if MGS4 (as you say) fails to deliver, then go ahead. But MGS4 WILL deliver because it got a 10 so far and the game looks amazing. Do not underestimate Konami or Kojima.
Believe me, I'm hoping it is. But see GTAIV got a 10 and in all honesty the 10 is subjective. I loved GTA, but I don't see why it got such a high review. I mean, games should be rated more closely and 10s should only be given out to games that have a beyond polished, original game. If MGS4 is that, then hell yeah. If it's not, then I don't believe it should get a 10. As much as I love the series, a Gears of War game should never be given a 10 because it has already proven itself, and is no longer original. So really, a 10 means nothing to me now the way they're whoring it around. In all reality, I'm just sick of not getting what the PS3 has potential for. Developers need to stop being lazy, and Sony needs to work with them more. It's not happening as much as one would hope, and the PS3's quality in some people's eyes(including mine), is diminishing. I've heard your arguments on the reliability issue, but not all people care. If the system delivers an unmatched experience, people will continue to buy it just like people will buy the PS3 for it's exclusives and potential.
I understand that as well dem0n but if developers don't want Sony's help, then Sony can't force them to use the help. Developers have to learn how to WORK with the technology. If Radical had done this, they would have had an awesome game on their hands. But unfortunately it isn't so. I may rent Haze in the future but for now I'll wait for the top-notch shooters to come out.
Please dem0n, do us a favor. Stop all your bіtching and moaning about a console and sell the damn thing, so the people at N4G don't have to endure anymore of your crap.
This is obviously not a complete build of the game. The Demo played better than this video.
Isn't the "gung-ho buddy buddy" mentality supposed to be deliberate on the Mantel side? They're supposed to be all on a drug-high and addicted to Nectar, so wasn't that the kind of corny "frat boy" thing that they were going for? The only ones that don't act like that are Shane (for the most part) and that one guy who hadn't been administering Nectar and he was all nervous and mellow. Maybe it is bad acting or whatever, but it looked a bit deliberate to me.
4.5 from IGN.
I don't think I'll get Haze, Demo didn't really do much for me and from what I've seen so far the voice acting is somewhat poor and the typical cliché red-neck military types. I think I'll hold out until the 16th of June before buying another game.
Seriously that was the most craptacular review I've ever read. 4.5? You would only rate that to Haze if it was nothing but a complete disaster. Even with flaws like they mentioned it would still deserve at least a 6-8. Totally suspicious if you ask me as the score did not reflect what we was writing. Whining about the corny dialogue? whats this a movie review? Jeez. Hell, he hardly even mentioned anything about gameplay and nothing anout the vehicles at all except complaining how bad the damned horns were? The article just got sadder and sadder the more I read. Seriously wtf. IGN has totally lost the plot imo.. anyways I'm done with these bs 'corporate' reviewing game sites.. stop being lambs and just go buy or hire the game and decide for yourselves.
I think this will be a kind of halo game, you dont really play it for the story but for the online experience. Atleast thats what im looking forward to and what i looked forward to in games like halo, timesplitters. Oh and i cant forget golden eye splitscreen =)
im getting dish sh*t today! and if ign is wrong im never looking at another review but famitsu's.
There are certainly many games looking worse, including Area 51, the darkness, and even Halo, though there are indeed some horrible errors like the lack of animation at 5:40 and lack of shadows. But again, giving the game a 4.5 for those minor flaws is like grading someone an F just because he had 3 spelling mistakes. I was more interested in videos of the gameplay section, to see if it actually deserves a 4.5, significantly worse than Area 51 or not.
at least the faces look good halo 1-2-3 looked like ids drew the faces.
Actually the faces in Halo 3 look like they smeared doo doo all over them
IGN are frikgen high! That vid made me want to get this thing now! This is loco what's happening with reveiws this gen. It's like editorial reviewers and the gaming community have gone all sorts of stupid. You're telling me with the sound of Airplane flying past, Decent voice overs and decent graphics with solid shooting mechanics this game is Poor? POOR?! That's madness.
kids not ids! is what i meant to type
Dreadful, no wonder there is a review uk embargo until release day. Another ps3 flop god i might sell mine.
Is it just me but doesn't the music sound kind of like Chronicles of Narnia music?
If MGS4 fails.. PS3 fails.
The Sony fanboys are running out of websites to blame for the PS3's shortcomings. First Kotaku, then Gametrailers....and now IGN...all of them are "Pro-360" and "paid by MS". Funny thing is,after the Gametrailers GRID debacle, alot of you were saying "thank God for IGN...you can trust them". Now, another overhyped, overpromised PS3 exclusive gets dumped on, & suddenly it's IGN's fault. Oh well, you'll always have PSU.com and SDF to make you feel better. :D
What you don't seem to realize is this game being bad has nothing to do with ps3. Everything about it is bad, and thats the fault of the devs. Everything down to the art design, and script was god awful so obviously this game was doomed to fail from the start because the dev team didn't have a clue what they were doing with this title. Sure the fanboys are making false claims, but then again you're one of them. They're trying to blame the website for the games shortcomings, and you're just trying to blame the system for the games short comings. You're both delusional.
It's the new version of LAIR......LAIR can finally rest in peace
