IGN: Haze Review – Ouch

53 second read

Oh no… this wasn’t what I was hoping was going to happen.

The much maligned Haze has started receiving a few reviews and while a few pro-Playstation websites have given it 9/10 or 80% the first major gaming site has come back with an overwhelmingly terrible 4.5/10

IGN has slated every single aspect of the game and stated that the only shining light is the multi-player and co-op which just doesn’t justify the purchase of this game.

I personally had high expectations and am just hoping IGN has this one wrong, I am sure we will find out on Friday when we publish our own review.

One thing that I do find quite hilarious though is that the current reader rating for Haze at IGN is 8.1, even though the game has not been released yet…

    No surprise, this game looked meh right from the start.

  • Banana hammock

    The game was released yesterday guys (20th), you could get it at any CNA.

    As for the review, i don’t trust these so-called professional reviews anymore. Too many dodgy dealings going on. I’ll wait for people i know and trust to review it, but just for info Famitsu gave the game 34/40. Yet i don’t see you posting that and it’s not even Friday… tut tut πŸ˜‰

    Hi Banana,

    The release date for Haze is only on Friday… which CNA is it that has released it already?

    PS: I have never published Famitsu’s reviews so I am still waiting on Eurogamer and some of the other big sites, I really do want this game to do well

    Haze + You = out there in the cold

    Okay, it’s after midnight so the embargo is lifted on the review copies of Haze that went out last week.

    I’ve played through the whole thing and as much as it pains me to say this — I’ve loved most everything these developers have been doing, and I wish them all the success in the world — Haze is utter and complete tripe. If I can prevent just one of you from throwing away money on this underdone turd of a shooter, I will be happy.

    I’ll have a full review online somewhere in about a week, but I care enough about you guys, and I know that enough of you guys are Timesplitters fans like me, that I just had to warn you, before it was too late. Heck, get Dark Sector, or that cool Viking game, or that cool time travel one whose name I can never remember. But trust me: this is not the shooter you’re looking for.

  • Ye, I’ll still play through it co-op.

    Make my own opinion. πŸ™‚

    Check the PS3ZA site, there is a HAZE thread. Someone even posted a pic.

  • kabraal

    Haze has a US release date of 20th of May and EU/JP release date of 23rd May. But yeah, there are some CNA’s that broke the release date for us, like they’ve done with other games as well.

  • SlippyMadFrog

    Damn! Thats crazy. How many years have this game been in development?

  • Fox1

    Good thing it’s not coming to the 360 πŸ™„

  • Syph1n

    its amazing how ps3 owners get so upset when one of their games get blasted.. dont worry guys, theres a couple crap ones on xbox to.. but ja that comment that lazy posted on in ps3 forum was frikkin priceless!!

  • LOL, PS3 fanboys are ****ing priceless!


    “Well i guess having the xbox360 around, all our games will never improve until they do something. Once again xbox is the lowest common denominator. So until they upgrade the xbox, and it can run at Full Hd like ps3, we gona have to play our games according to the specs of the xbox. eish,.i was hyped about haze, but it only runs at 576p…lamo”

    It’s a PS3 exclusive you knob!

    This is a new arguement i must say i havent heard before. its turning to the “well you suck more” way of thinking.. this game sucks because because well, its the xbox’s fault!!! even though the game isnt on xbox.

  • LazySAGamer

    I think he may be regretting making that comment now….

    To be fair though the PS3 guys let him know straight away as well so I think it’s unfair to label all PS3 fans with this….

  • kab123

    I’ze also gonna lol be unfortunatly i just had my mid morning sex so that doesn’t really do it for me atm

  • Syph1n

    Are you ok? …in the head i mean?

    From gamespy review

    “It’s clear from the bare-bones multiplayer, glitchy graphics and incredibly short storyline that Haze is a game interrupted. Discussion of whether Free Radical did not anticipate the difficulty of building a next-gen engine or whether it ran out of resources is academic at this point, because we can all see that Haze is not finished… not graphically and not narratively, either. For a much-hyped, blockbuster PS3 exclusive, Haze does very little to endear itself or the PS3 to anyone.”

    Says it all really.
