    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.

    This game is incredibly fun. After playing for several hours, I find it hard to put down. While the graphics may not be on par with some of This game is incredibly fun. After playing for several hours, I find it hard to put down. While the graphics may not be on par with some of the other games that have recently come out, they are NOT "bad" as some of the reviews say, and the story isn't BAD either. The story (no -important- spoilers) is very intriguing. It shows the negative effects of war without consciousness of consequences and lack of morals. The main character is believable, and you truly begin to care about him throughout the course of the story. Both sides are fun to play as, each side having advantages and disadvantages. I won't go into them all, but Nectar is both a blessing and a curse. Forced overdoses can lead to massive team death, while correct doses can lead to faster takedown of the enemy. I enjoy this game, and therefore I believe it deserves an 8.5-9. Expand

    Haze isn't as good as it should have been, but it's far from the bomb it's been made out to be. Free Radical's narrative Haze isn't as good as it should have been, but it's far from the bomb it's been made out to be. Free Radical's narrative shines right through the muddy graphics and disappointing level design, but in the end Haze proves to be a disappointing offering. Here's hoping the developer's next effort makes good on their exceptional history. Expand
