Free Radical’s latest FPS, Haze demo was just released 2 days ago. I downloaded the demo to my PS3 immediately it went online and i must say that i was better than what i was expecting.
The game feels tight and there lots of action just by playing the Demo. The concept of having ‘Nectar’ being injected into you body, a type of bioenhancing drug that supposedly enhances your fighting ability is not really a totally fresh concept in the world of FPS. It feels very much like the Halo Franchise in terms of gameplay and the feel of the game as an FPS. Graphics arent jawdropping, but it isnt bad either. I enjoyed the demo pretty much, but im still skeptical on whether the hardcore FPS players out there would truly embrace this game. There have been very mixed reviews on the gameplay itself just by evaluating the demo. And with GTAIV fresh on the shelf, barely 2 weeks of release, Haze looks to have quite a hill up ahead to overcome if this were to prove itself to be a popular new franchise.
As for me, i dunno. I might get a copy of the game, but not on day one of release. The game is slated for 20th May 2008.
