Images of Haze

Images of Haze

Ubisoft and Free Radical release some new images of the controversial FPS Haze. Obviously, Photoshop has been doing some dramatic extra time over these... again.

The reason why they show mostly all their images in this top notch bullshot quality is because they know the game itself has sucky gaphics, so they want to "cheat" through screenshots.

I don't understand why they do this, sooner or later we all will be seing gameplay, so whats the point of releasing bullshots, do they think we are stupid :S

Seriously, if the gameplay (demo early May) impresses me then i might consider buying it, but graphically, it is not good as these images, which makes the gameplay visuals dissapointing.

Oh C'mon the game is not that bad, it basically looks like those screens with less AA

There's a controversy surrounding this game? News to me...

And publishers editing screenshots? That's nothing new. If they're not captures done by a third party, they're most likely touched up.

Heavily photoshopped. They should be prevented from doing this, as its not far from being false advertising!

bullshots or not, the game looks great. gameplay looks fun, premis and story seem original, i'll be buying day one. unless of course the demo is close to turok/darksector levels of crapness in terms of clunky, slow controls.

WOW! Doctored beyond belief!!!!

I just can't get into this game. The graphics are meh and the story is meh. However, the demo could win me over if the four player co-op somehow ends up being fun.

Ironically, when I clicked on one of the images, there was ad in the pop up window that said "Learn Photoshop in just two hours!". Lmao.

Oh my god... this screenshots are... not screenshots :D
maybe the basic graphics are ingame... but there are a LOT of filters applied!!!
Very nice explosions anyway

Actually I think these are wallpapers. Could be wrong though.

I don't understand why anyone is at all impressed by this "innovative" game.

Mainly becuase it's about as innovative as Bioshock was: Ergo, Not.

It's just that gamers like to think that the game they are playing means more than the standard patriotic movie rip-off FPS they're used to. What a load of pretentious crap.

Hahahaha, very good *lol* ^^

The game seems to be good. During the whole developpment time I lost interests into this game, but now I'll keep an eye on it, again. Waiting for first reviews and meanings of players. Perhaps a purchase.

ubi soft = great game

The game looked pretty generic from the start.

It's made by Free Radical. If you knew the history of that company, it would be kind of a big deal to you to see what they're capable of with this game.

No one ever said it was innovative

Also no amount of photoshop can save that character model in the foreground in the 2nd to last picture

there should clearly be some sort of laws governing this...this is basically false advertising. I don't think i've ever seen more doctored shots! o.O

I hate it when they do that. When they release these type of screenshots and then us "watchers" will belive that is how the game will look like (before gameplay shows).

They shouldn't release these type of mock up images, aren't they proud of their engine? :S

If they aren't proud of it then don't show it and work on the graphics, but don't try fool us with photoshop image magic stuff, it won't work.

We say "alright it looks great, but lets see gameplay".

*gameplay shows*

wtf happened with the graphics we saw in those screenshots :S

Atleats when Guerilla released a few patch of screenshots they admitted it was "doctored" with, hat way being honest about it is good, but releasing such thing and not saying anything is stupid and low.

But I will definitely try the demo out, it looks and seems to be fun.
If the controls arent clunky and seems to play good andit entertains me enough to keep going, it means I will get it.

Heh heh, they are so fake they look like illustrations for a trade magazine.

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (23 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (35 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (37 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (39 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (41 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (42 minutes ago)
