    After a steady diet of brilliant alternatives, Haze's innovations and compelling story aren't enough. [July 2008, p.80]
  2. In my opinion Haze can be considered a pretty good FPS game in terms of its basic gameplay concepts, however not everything came together in the end.

    While Haze may be dumb, it's also fun, and if you like your first person shooters - and especially if you can find it for under £30 - it's worth picking up Haze so that you can shake off the blurred vision for yourself and make up your own mind.
  5. Haze is just the latest nail in Sony’s coffin that finds me using my PS3 more as a Blu-ray movie player than a gaming system.

    What could have been so good and what - according to the hype - was going to be so great has proven to be nothing more than a complete and total let down, tied together with some decent ideas but coming out as nothing but totally, completely and utterly shonky.
  7. Every developer is allowed to lay an egg, and this is definitely Free Radical’s turn to drop one.

    Pretty damn amazing game. Getting to play both sides is cool. The co-op mode makes this game a 10!
