Are you a PS3 gamer that is tired of Metal Gear Solid 4, Call of Duty 4 and Quantum of Solace? Don’t have the cash for Killzone 2? But you’re ready and looking for another First Person Shooter to invest your time in – then you should consider this weeks bargain find; HAZE (Retail Price $14.99).
Play as a drug crazed soldier in the Mantel army, fighting the rebel group The Promised Hand. Take control and battle your way across Central America fighting for your cause and trying to right all the previous wrongs committed in the name of the greater good. Use your addiction and those of your allies and enemies to your advantage to meet your objectives.
Likely you missed this game when it released in May of 2008, as it was overshadowed by the launch of the highly anticipated title Metal Gear Solid 4, just a few weeks later.
For this price you just can’t miss out on HAZE.
To get a better understanding of what you have been missing, check out this Korn video inspired by HAZE:
The basics of the game are quite simple and very straight forward. Pick a team; Pirates, Ninjas, Robots or the gruesome Zombies. Bash the other team with the bouncing balls while avoiding the balls they throw at you. Seems easy enough right?
The 2v2 matches seemed a little to easy – sailing through with out a hitch first the Zombies pressed my ninja pair as the battled through the tombstones on a grass court. Then facing off against the robots with their slanted ramps and neon world, quickly learning the skills of a dodgeball playing ninja (pass then attack). My story then travels to the booty laden beach where arch nemesis the evil pirates sit taunting. Defeating the pirates quickly I’m rewarded with the unlockable third character and step up for my first 3v3 match, only to start over in the same 4v4 process.
Having only four levels makes this a bit of a repetitive title, but the added team members and quirky story lines provide a much needed dose of humor. This title is one that will be fun to play for a short time or when you have a number of friend over and need to get out your frustrations.
– Easy to pick up and just play – Funny character stories between matches – Unlockable levels and characters
– Repetitive sound effects – Only four boards
