MGS07: 10 minutes of Haze

MGS07: 10 minutes of Haze

This show had its own little surprises, like this Haze demo, showing the jungle level from the beginning, and continuing where the other presentations stopped. Thank's to the Ubisoft developers who took the time to perform it for us.

Very cool game, but this "jungle fever" has been heated to death (shown too much) I want to see new environments.

great look jungle

I remember in E3 one of the devs got interviewed by Ryan from Gamespot while showing it off, and the dev said that this jungle is like 10% of the game, and its in the beginning or something.
He also said that they aren't trying to make another jungle shooter like Crysis or Far Cry.

That alone make it a ease to know there i other environments :)

Graphics look good, I thought this was multiplatform a while back ?
Commented on 2007-09-29 15:17:50
Nope...confirmed that there are NO plans for 360 and PC...Ps3 exclusive.

November can't come soon enough and this is one of the titles I'm looking forward to the most in the month.

It was, a while back. I guess Sony decided they needed to get another exclusive FPS to hold them over til KZ2 dropped. Funny thing is, Infinity Ward still doesn't think they have any competition on the PS3 this year in terms of their genre (COD4).. and I'm not sure they're wrong.

I'll try it out.. I've never been terribly impressed by this game though.

I can't understand why this game is being hyped. Looks like any other shooter to me.
Commented on 2007-09-29 16:06:37
Well as far as FPS goes for me this year I have only 3 titles in mind, and I can't decide which ones to go with.

Haze
COD4
The Orange Box (HL2 games)

I LOVE futuristic settings and all that so Haze is a must for me, but I am VERY skeptical about COD4 and The Orange Box.

I played HL2 on PC in like 1-2 hours, cool and all, but I want something different and fresh.

Although COD4 isnt fresh, it excecutes the modern battlefield greatly.
No I haven't played the beta, but all this talk, and footage...who knows.

For some reaosn I doubt I will get HL2...don't know why but have a gut feeling about it that it wont fill my "needs".

Hyped? This isnt hyped at all...neither is UT3...the only hyped up FPS game is that Halo 3 game. But thats over soon enough, and other FPS games will get hyped up.

Hey Sath :) Would you mind providing a link, I tried googling but there were too many conflicting stories about exclusivity and a timed exclusive

Thanks

Best one I could find. But SO FAR, its PS3 exclusive and the latest news said that the 360 and Pc version have been dropped.

But it can change, considering its Ubi and all.
Commented on 2007-09-29 22:26:53
Do people really care if this game is exclusive? i think it needs to be as noone would even look at it

All previews have ripped it to bits due to not doing anything that well and using features from other games

I played it a leipzig and the driving sections were horrendous the shooter sections are better though but the textures were very low res

I think the "fanboys" care, considering they want more exclusives rather than loosing them.

And they need a FPS, however, as far as FPS exclusive, I say Killzone 2 is the one.
Besides Sony got MGS4, bad ass franchise!

You give me ALL the previews and lets see if ALL previews have "ripped" it into bits, as you mentioned.

IGN - GC 07 Preview

Ultimately though, there's no denying Haze is shaping up to be something special. Not only do both contrasting halves of the game hold up well on their own, the four-player co-op mode is instantly gratifying - it feels great to be backed up by a squad of people, rather than AI-controlled bots. Free Radical has a long history of creating great shooters and it looks like Haze could even go one step further than the developer's previous titles.
Just because you didn't like it, doesn't mean you should say the wrong facts, the truth always finds its way.

I also read the Gamespot and they are relaly looking forward to it, they liked what they saw.

Since when was Nectar used in other shooters? or play dead? or combine Nectar with grenade and knife to make the AI go against each other?

It brings something new to the FPS games in terms of gameplay, and that is why I like it so much.

It depends how your playing style is, and once online you choose the faction you like best, Mantel or Rebel.

the similarities between this and halo are uncanny

first of all the name haze compared to halo
both begin with H
both end in a vowel
both second letter an A
and both 4 letters long

also

-first mission in a jungle
-play as both sides (ala halo2 mater cheif and arbutur roles)
-four player online co op
-veichal that looks suspiciously like a warthog
- both first person shooter games coming out this year
- both the biggest EXCLUSIVE fps for the console this year

im not saying its a bad thing, nor anything suspicious
but whether coinsidence or not, its pretty intresting to me at least

but hey, if it really is anything like halo3, it will be one hell of an amazingly fun and memerable experiance for you ps3 owners :)

I'll give you one more Halo similarity. The flying vehicle at the beginning, looks a lot like the hornet from Halo.

Most previews are positive, even on games that the editors of any given site wind up ripping into come review time. It may turn out alright, but it's up against harsh competition this holiday season even with multiplatform titles that we already know are great. I think there are just too many unknowns here for most people to care.
Commented on 2007-09-30 03:22:03
The fact that this DOESN'T look terribly exciting is what excites me the most. These are Free Radical, and even though they might not mean anything to some (most?) people, they've done stuff that in my book counts as reason to trust there's something unique and exciting to the games they make. I'll admit to not being a big fan of the Timesplitters games themselves, but I've always liked what they did with the style and setup of those games. Also, Second Sight I actually consider something of a modest classic.

The fact that I haven't seen stuff to get excited about tells me that there may well be stuff I won't be expecting here, and it could end up being a very enjoyable shooter because of that.

With a similar mindset, I enjoyed Resistance aswell.

i don't see anything that makes this shooter stand out. I mean, nectar is the big gimmick, but it reality, the concept isn't that cool. Yeah the graphics are nice, but beyond that, it's pretty bland. The guns don't even seem to pack much power. I don't see where all the hype is coming from. i bet the average review score for this game will be about a 7.3.

Well yeah, the reciews (which I dont care about) is the time were the truth comes out of those little bastards.

When they interview the devs they don't have the balls to tell them that they dont like this and that in the game, they keep saying "yeah it looks awesome"...etc. but when the reviews comes in, they bash it, which make them liars.

It doesn't mean anything to me sorry :P
But Haze do look very cool.

And yes, I liked Resistance alot.

Thank god it isn't coming to 360, it has a ridiculous amount of shooters already.
Commented on 2007-09-30 14:51:39
Good graphics. But just like about any other shooter it looks boring to me.

4 player co-op sounds good.
Commented on 2007-09-30 23:27:26
Looks rather uninteresting to me.
