Not the best game, but not the worst either. Under $20 seems fair.

lol. im one of the few who can say they bought this game for the full $60. i had so much faith in it and i believed every lie free radical fed to me. I mean, seriously, i dont think there was ever a more hyped and publicized game then haze. They did so many ads, technical demonstrations, videos, features, and just so much more you honestly would think the game was godsend. Plus free radical HAD a good track record...

then i bought it... $60. its no more then a 5 at best. The story is so laughably horrible they would have been better off just saying, "go kill these guys" the graphics are a poor ps2 quality... gameplay is outdated... man, im only keeping it now just as a reminder, keepsake, of how free radical played everyone with this one. And for the fact its probably worth only like $5....

its just all and all the most mediocre and half assed shooter ive ever seen.

hell, kinda funny thing is that i just popped it in this morning to play it, and i played 2 online co-op games where the textures never loaded, and everyone and everything was just shiny blobs

I got this game along with a friend when BB had it for $10. I would not recommend it if you don't have a friend to play with. It's so horrible that you need someone to laugh with you at just how bad it is.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Wow, i can feel the pain in this post.:-#

Im kind of tempted in buying it, just to see how BAD this title really is. Kina like having Superman64 in your collection purposely, for all the wrong reason.

I'll wait until i can find it for like $5.

This.

I would never want to play this game alone. It looks horrible, sounds horrible, and plays horrible (glitches galore).

Stuck through most of it, mainly because I wanted a PS3 game to co-op on.

I also bought this when it was $9.99 at Best Buy back in October. Never opened it, and as a result of all the sales during the holidays of well rated games, I never opened it and was going to sell it.

A friend of mine who wanted a new game to play purchased it from me for what I paid.

He played it last week and everyday he would come to work and tell me the game sucked and it was so bad ... but he still played all the way through it.

speaking of glitches galore, one of the levels near the end of the game has such horrible object pop-ins that i was absolutely LMAO. seriously, the one that had me cracking up the most was when grass would pop up. they had little bunches of it scattered across this dry desert type level. very simple, looked like this.

\|/

sad i know. anyway, you would just be walking along this flat brown desert like level, and these little grass things would be popping up everywhere, but the funny thing is, they wouldnt pop up till you were literally like 5 feet away and almost stepping on them..... it was soooooooo bad...

though... i should add a good note.... the game does have a strong community from launch and still going strong today. Like i just said above, i popped it in this morning for shits and giggles and there were tons of co-op games and just as many multiplayer games. they also released a pretty nice big FREE DLC for it a while back that added new modes and maps. granted, its still a horrible mess of a game, but at least you got lots of people to play that horrible mess with :P

I bought it for $10, and thought it was kind of fun. It definitely gets better than the demo. On the other hand, there are a whole lot of better FPS out there...

I'm in the same boat. About the only thing that really bugged me was the dialogue/writing (excessive swearing seemed in poor taste most of the time) with the cutscenes/story and the constant repetition of dialogue from your AI teammates while you're playing. The rest isn't all that bad. The message behind the story is kind of cool, but still pretty cliche and overall poorly executed.

Bottom line is that it's tolerable......for $10 or under. Don't pay $16.99 for this.

I liked it. Liked it better than Call of Duty 2 or 4, and maybe slightly more than Gears 1 (about on par with Gears 1). Though that's ONLY judging the single player game as I don't care about deathmatch.

Had an actual story (kind of heavy handed, but most games in this genre can't even be bothered with that). Control and weapons felt good, etc.
Spoiler


At any rate, for me anything under $30 would have seemed reasonable, and $20 or less a good deal (I picked it up during that Best Buy deal).

Of course, I also liked Perfect Dark Zero and Farcry: Instincts: Predator: Too Many Subtitles too (also better than the Call of Duty games), which for some reason unknown to me people also hate...

This.

I would never want to play this game alone. It looks horrible, sounds horrible, and plays horrible (glitches galore).

Stuck through most of it, mainly because I wanted a PS3 game to co-op on.


Did you guys have the newest patch? I never saw anything glitchy in it, and I thought it looked fine. Not the greatest looking thing ever, but competent. (Competent is the worst I can say about it.)

For everybody who played the first half of the game and quit... you missed the good stuff. Free Radical swapped development partway from last gen to current gen and forgot to go back and upgrade the first part of the game. I still remember getting to the abandoned hotel and going "Whoa! What the heck?! Huge level? Good textures? Complex geometry?! Did I miss something?!" The game beefed up halfway in.

BTW, the helicopter rides while listening to Captain Jock Strap totally rank as some of the most painful video game cutscenes ever created. Worst. Dialog. Ever.

Oh, thanks. But the other was that Star Wars: Battlefront game? Yeah, that has nothing to do with Free Radical (and I hated HATED the demo).

Weirdly I didn't like...umm...can't think of the name. The psychic powers game they released last gen. I loved Psi-Ops but didn't like the Free Radical game at all.
