Canoe WHAM! Gaming previews Haze. The verdict: "Outlook not so good."
He was being nice. I'm sure other reviews will reflect his comments.
Dont u think we shud hold judgement until its released?? Just so we dont sound like desperate fanboys.
its gonna take you some time to take your foot outta Pegg's @ss
the power of pwnd
its gonna take you some time to get laid.
People who take the time to research and INFORM deserve credibility in this forum, rather than PoG's feeble attempts to ridicule. Kudos, Hatchet.
This guy is calling the whole demo a mess because he didn't think the tutorial was well placed? I suppose it's entirely possible that the demo did suck, but it would have been nice if he had explained exactly why he thought it did. He doesn't really say a damn thing about the game except that it's easy...in the first level...and he doesn't like that they don't throw a tutorial at you right away. Pretty useless impressions if you ask me. And why does he bring up Halo? What's that got to do with anything? Helmets? Okay.
Didn't IGN and Gamespot enjoy the game in their hands on? I remember reading how much fun they had playing this game and what not.
so this guy didn't like it because the tutorial of the demo was late wtf? his didn't even explained why he didn't like it. this is just more fanboyisy [email protected] if you ask me and why the hell did he being up halo for? this damm fanboy all they see is what they want to see and if it not a 360 logo on it, then it must be carp because they said so. like that girl from 1up.com saying unreal was good for the ps3 but don't buy it, but the pc one wtf. this reviewer are basis like hell. people how about when you disagree tell that person why your disagree with them lol.
The girl on 1up said the pc version was better than the ps3 version. However they all still agreed that the ps3 version was good. That's not fanboyism.
where did they say that? As far as I know the only version has been seen is the PS3 version. From 1up Haze Becomes Full PlayStation 3 Exclusive? Xbox 360 and PC versions still possible, but not in development. By Andrew Hayward, 08/31/2007 "Ubisoft confirmed to GameSpot UK today that Free Radical's upcoming first-person shooter, Haze, is currently only in development for the PlayStation 3. Previously announced as a timed exclusive for the holiday season (with Xbox 360 and PC versions to follow in 2008), this confirmation makes Haze a full PlayStation 3 exclusive -- at least for the time being."
shankle that was the ut 3 video
It is really hard to compare any console game to the PC version. It all depends on what kind of computer you have. Not everyone can afford the top of the line computer just for gaming. It is much cheaper to buy a PS3 considering how much it would cost to get the same gaming experience on a PC. If you do not have a great gaming PC then it is probably better on the PS3. If you have a top of the line gaming PC then it might be better than the PS3's version.
Why even write more then a few words about this. The game is still 3 weeks away. Remember the score that one mag gave Warhawk, 6.5! just wait and see. Wont matter much anyway with COD4 coming out.
Actually I think it matters all the more with COD4 coming out. We need to find out which is a better game so we can decide where best to invest our time and money.
Come on people who didnt know this free radical ? haha who are they no1s inth egame industry not because the made timesplitter which was a ok game not gr8 time splitter 2was garbage of haze wud suck free radical are not gre8 game makers.
My god why does this site allow people like you to post? /facepalm
Learn how to type, and spell.
happened to make golden eye and perfect dark for nintendo 64. but those weren't great games right? /sarcasm
Did you hate Goldeneye or Perfect Dark for the N64? Because most of the team at free radical worked on those games.
golden eye on n64 was made by RARE
WTF is dis guy talking about?? Does he live in a different dimension wer Free Radical didnt make great games like, Golden Eye and PD for the N64(most of FR were once the original devs from Rare back in the days of the N64)or the Timesplitters franchise??? Jezz the things i hear come out of ignorant fanboys nowadays.
Ugh you fools! Most of the development team split off from rare and made free radical. So while technically free radical didn't create goldeneye and perfect dark, the people IN free radical did.
there is still a game company called rare the ppl that split and made free radical have no say in games like golden eye as they were no 1s .
I am still trying to decipher this post.
Someone bring in the kid from Mercury Rising!
This is what the MS fanboy wouldve said if HAZE was a 360 exclusive: Omfg this game is sooo good!!! i love how they give you the tutorial on using nectar in the middle of the battle...its perfect timing.Who cares if i didnt play multiplayer I STILL LOVE IT!!! The fact that the demo was easy really TURNED ME ON i loved killing the enemies easily!!! great game!!!
this one.. http://previews.teamxbox.co... "HAZE made our Most Anticipated First-Person Shooters of 2007 for a very specific reason: It’s the closest thing to a potential “Halo killer” that we know of." and.. "This game is simply poetry in motion (best. Water effects. Ever) running on whatever-spec hardware happened to be crammed into the PC. If the Xbox 360 version looks as good, expect HAZE to be one of the best looking FPS’ of the year." And just so people dont come out and say Well it was running on the X360.. heres this part of it.. "Four PC’s running PS3-spec code (yeah, we’re a little fuzzy on what’s going on with the Xbox 360 version) were networked together..."
searches the internet for bad ps3 news no news too small or obscure no source too flimsy no opinion too unsubstantiated and yet again success, later with help of mesh1's opinion and that of the many microsoft alliance members, it must be true. take that evil playstation three players. lol
what would microsoft do without round peg and bloodmask?
They would at least be able to open thier mail without finding underwear and nude photos of the two and their 360.
but im more excited for infamous.
All i'm saying is that i'm picking up this game when it drops.
Same here. [Edit:] Actually... I was falling asleep yesterday I didn't it notice the comment as PRICE DROP or something. by the way I want this game on November when get launch :). So is a launch day buy SERIOUSLY!.
whoeva said this was sonys ansa to halo? people really do chat dum sumtimes thats the 1st iv eva heard that.people like to put a spin on things to start flame wars and this is a perfect example any xbox owner or ps3 owner eva heard that this was sonys ansa to halo? na me neither dnt fall into the bait!! haze hasnt even been on my radar,cod4 has and unreal tournament and obviously the 2nd commin which is killzone,which is gona be a ps3 seller and i turly bleve be a definin moment in fps's. xbox owners have a very good game in halo not a genre definin game as halo1 but a good game which they should be proud of so props to them.
You lose a bubble for spelling so bad it made my eyes hurt.
Wtf is this crap please don't approve stories done by these guys anymore..Thanks. Canoe wham is pretty stupid also lol.
maybe if I played the demo as well I would have more to say on this. but really Im still excited for Haze the article didnt tarnish anything as far as Im concerned. just another opinion
Haze is still high in top of my wishlist come next month. I mean lets not forget how much people wer bashing the Halo 3 beta for being a high res Halo 2, n things worked out fine.
I have to admit, it looks like crap. The concept of Nectar is a nice touch but it just doesn't scream anything revolutionary.
Sigh*...every game on the PS3 HAS to be "revolutionary", but other systems can have simple FPSs and non-revolutionary games and get perfect scores...right?
No I agree other FPS games (Halo3) aren't revolutionary neither. But seriously Haze looks horrible. Note that I said "LOOKS" it can change once I play. I mean I was ITCHING to play Jericho because it looked awesome but when the demo came out it well...if the game is going to be like that then it's a total failure. The animations are poor, it's too damn dark in certain areas. The concept of a 5 man team is cool but again, it doesn't work. Clive Barker will not be getting any of my money and HAZE doesn't look like they are neither. Why do you care? I'm a PS fan, never had an XBOX. But you have to admit when a game looks bad, it looks bad. Maybe not to you but to me it does. I'm not a fanboy I can admit things.
I guess I'm not as hard as games on graphics as you are. Crysis looks amazing...compared to that, the game looks decent..but I wouldnt say the game is "horrible". That's just too harsh...looking boring and generic because it's a FPS and has the little nectar feature then maybe, but graphics-wise I've seen alot worse in recent games. The only reason I care, and you didnt have to add what kind of fan you are...but you sound like any other critic of a PS3 game. If the game doesn't look like Killzone 2 then it's a flop. If this game looks horrible, I really want to know what makes a game looks even average to some people..
Actually, I was pretty surprised by the Jericho demo. Its not my genre, but I had fun to play the demo. It was surprisingly good, IMO. I had some trouble with the other team members (so, no comment on game play), but the character "mechanic" was OK, visuals, too. Quality of animations and visuals also (fluid and nicely rendered with nice light effects). Sometimes a demo can make an impression. I haven't played Haze, yet. The videos and screenshots look promising. Eventually the hands on will let me decide (either a demo or a rent-to-keep).
STAT! Seriously though, this is one persons opinion. He's entitled to it like other people are entitled to say its mind blowing. edit. so people disagree that people should have a opinion? twats
They use others opinions, so they don't understand when someone has one of their own.
are you talking about. THis has AAA written all over it, but according to you "high standards" its not worth the money. Sure, your just a jealous troll. Go play some 640p Halo. Haze is so much better because it'll at least run at 720p
I've seen it in motion on a tv channel. Looked like jerkfest. Probably at some places it was running @ 20fps. The A.I was stupid and the guy cud go behind most enemies and hit them with the drug injections. Nothing special in this one move along. Edit: Firstknight u missed Timeshift, Area 51 etc. Timeshift demo was much better than what we see from the vids and pics of haze.
Please...I predict and average of low 8's and won't even hit a million sale mark. Watch!
who made you a console fortune teller? go play your stupid halo, xbot! I'll play my AAA haze
so what if it doesnt sell 1 million. 8 as a score is still a good game. whats your point? diss everthing couse its not xbox? grow up.
My point is that Haze will fall in the middle of the rest of the FPS that has averaged an 8. There are literally TONS of them. The Darkness, Prey, Resistance, Fear, etc... All of these games are good FPS and Haze will be just another one in the mix. But it will never reach the top of the mountain like Bioshock, Halo 3, or Half Life 2.
I was about to agree with you, but then you brought up Bioshock and Halo etc (and Resistance is a 9er range, BTW). You are right, there are a ton of good games coming. And you might also be right, that they might fall into the 8 category. Why ? I don't know. I think 9+ requires a marketing backup, it does not really say anything about the real quality of a game. Especially if you bring Bioshock or Halo, two of the most overrated games ever (well, the first one, I don't know why, the second, well, yes, because its called "Halo"). I just think all games 8+ are playable. Enjoy what you like. Currently the reviewers will have a challenge. First, its hard, they cannot give all those games a 10, and then, a 10 is reserved for special "customers" (it seams). So, well, we'll see how that turns out. And then, there are really a ton of games coming out. They will fill the market until early 2008, IMO. If Haze is not absolute trash, it will replace my Graw2. Actually, I am also curious to see how TimeShift plays, or Area51 (which reminds me a little bit of followup to Resistance), or Army of Two (looks great as well), or Mercenaries 2 (2008), Frontlines (? when's that due ?), and yes, the other category is UT3 and CoD4. (Actually, a Haze for $49 would probably outsell CoD4 @ $59 - they should be more flexible with their price, IMO).
"Especially if you bring Bioshock or Halo, two of the most overrated games ever (well, the first one, I don't know why, the second, well, yes, because its called "Halo")." That made no sense kid.
i was never really excited about this game, just another generic FPS
when haze gets below AAA rating, and gets in the 7-8 range.
...but Sony fans trying to hype this game up is just gonna kill it worse when the reviews finally come in. It's best to keep the expectations medium and be surprised if it turns out amazing. But I agree that this dude's review is lame
Well the Sony fanboys have alot of hatred for the Halo Trilogy. Especially now since Halo 3 met and exceeded all the hype with record breaking sales and is rated higher than any ps3 game to date. So it's no surprise that they try to hype up this Halo clone and calling it a AAA title. But after a month of its release the game will completely dissapear and be another FPS picking up dust at Blockbuster. Haze has a few cool ideas but the whole nectar thing is stupid. Haze to me reminds me of a combination of Halo and Far Cry.
for a rude awakening when Haze pwns the sh!t out of Halo and your precious Gears
Haze is pretty much narc in diguise *use drugs in that game and you get super powers*
May the best man win. williamrlbaker or coleslaw.
he's a fanBOY!!!!
Not only a crybaby fanboy, but his girlfriend is a hamster and a slutty one at that.
lol we have a tie today! Sofa, and the other guy get stupidest comment of the day! not only did they make no sense, or have any thing to do with the topic at hand, they must have been the worst disses ever, My 13 year old nephew slings far better.
Nice to know your nephew can 'sling far better.' Why don't you invite him here so we can listen to something then then your usual drivel? While you are at it, I am trying to figure out how you can be younger then your nephew, are you adopted?
Why? Don't be a fanboy. I didn't laugh when Halo3 was figured for 620p. I just played it. :D
This is one of the worst previews i've ever read. I mean not that he's slighty bashing (and must be the first in history to do so) haze but also, its short and does not come with any information or any good explination why its bad.
why is it that these no name sites keep getting posted here?
The only thing he says is mostly about the demo and not full game, i rather have a review of the full game. I myself hate when half the demo is about explaining stuff, like timshift. who have the time (hehe) to check out for all the feuters when you got people to kill. I would say wait for full game review if you even care about reviews, im gonna wait for players oppinion.
