It was average at best, so yeah, fundamentally changing the game would be justified.
One of the worst things about the lead up to the game was the dev team's open exposure of the central story moment in the game. They did far too many videos attempting to drum up support. For them to openly state, "And the big secret of the game is this moment where..." I was dumbfounded. I personally could not believe the idiocy of those people.
Biggest let dwn last gen for sure
The controllers were awfully bad. I remember when Sony fanboys were hyping this up as the Halo killer 😂😂😂
I remember when Xbox had games...
I normally ignore console flame bait, but I can't not laugh at this.
Hahahahahahahaha. That was way too good. This is the defenition of BURN!!🤣
Remember your promise to merino!!! remember the promise
Ouch! I felt the burn on that and I'm a Sony fanboy
OG Xbox? Because the 360 was lacking exclusives
I remember that too. All they had to do was wait until Halo 5 for Halo to kill itself.
I just made the same joke without seeing this, thinking I was so original I feel like an idiot
No real PlayStation fan said that. The media did. Same goes for Killzone for that matter.
You still around bro? wow I feel old.
Damn, you're the second person you say that to me. I need to show my face more. Yeah still here. 11 years now.
11 years. I feel like a spring chicken with my 10...
Mart & POG will return
Ha. Let's hope not. Although those were real trolls at least. Today's trolls are just lazy.
I recently terrified myself too when I realised how long I've been here. I'm joining you in the 11 years club lads and it's definitely making me feel like an antique.
Oh boy...True. How long has it been...
I've been around for 8.5 years not sure why pretty much the same old garbage. Guess I'm just hoping to see new game info but usually get crap.
Time went on to show that halo didnt need a killer, it killed itself
@Razmiran sad, but true comment
Yeaaaahhh I don’t remember that at all but whatever makes you feel better in your imaginary war
Eh, he’s not entirely wrong. Those of us PS users that were actually around in the early PS3 years were a tad desperate. The only really good online exclusives at the time we’re Resistance and Warhawk.
You weren't here to see it but yes this game was being hyped as the Halo killer as was Killzone.
Maybe a reboot, but it was mediocre
I enjoyed playing it. It was way better than it was received. Not saying a block buster, but not that bad. A bit tuning here and there and it could have been a great game. It had ambition.
I really liked the concept (the suit was pretty damn cool) but it was poorly executed overall.
It had potential, so maybe a reboot or reimagining would be awesome.
Gaming for is is a religion, and haze is the shit.
This was a generic fps on an era of generic fps. Nothing about this game stood out. So why bother bringing it back?
While the game was average I enjoyed it. I purchased it day one upon release. I'd like to see a second crack at it.
Remember your promise to Merino!
Fundamentally had the mix to be a good game, but it was simply not a finished game. You look at the history of Free Radical around 2008 and there was no way it could've lived up to the hype.
I actually kind of liked this game. It wasn’t the greatest thing ever made, but for an early PS3 game, the graphics were pretty good, the gameplay mechanics in MP were kindof neat, and it was one of the only PS3 games to have 4 player split screen online coop for the campaign. Plus the story was kind of fun to think about.
The game sank its developer should get a remake? Keep dreaming
the original version of haze looked so good.But they changed a bunch before they released it and it didnt turn out for many people. I personally really enjoyed it and it felt different but it had bad controls but must ps3 games did because of the os and the crappy controller.
I mean, I believe there are plenty of good shooters to choose from nowadays as to justify remaking what is arguably the worst PS3 exclusive ever. Even trash like The Order 1886 would be far more deserving of a second chance than THIS... At least that one had a cool concept to build around of.
The game had some really cool ideas, so I'd be open to a reboot.
This game was false advertisement
Aaahhh!! Last gen, where FPS overstated the market and made the industry boring asf!
Solid game and it had splitscreen and bot support although only for deathmatch. Really cool themes but execution was a bit rough, still love the concepts, i remember clawing through every bit of artwork and screenshots for this game, Although ill take a new Timesplitters/remake any day over this.
I actually loved this game, and I was definitely disappointed with how lackluster it was, but I loved it all the same and I would gladly welcome a remake.
"Why gaming journalists like these need proper training" Really? Haze? I mean, it had potential but remaster a game like this? The original wasn't even that popular. Time=money to devs and it should to you as well. I bought the original and thought it was going to be amazing but was severely disappointed.
