Hazy days

The first batch of reviews for the oft-delayed Haze are in. Sadly, so far signs suggest that the delay hasn’t done the game any favours with a current average review score of 55% on GameRankings. This includes a poor 4.5 from IGN who claim that the story is weak, the AI poor and the visuals are hampered by glitches. They take particular dislike to the flamethrower, which apparently emits flames resembling those found in first person shooters from around 10 years ago. It’s like Lair all over again!

Japanese magazine Famitsu gave it a glowing review though, as did an Italian PlayStation Magazine. One of those “exclusive” reviews, no doubt. Free Radical’s Rob Yescombe remains positive: “Haze has had mixed reviews, but even GoldenEye got a 4/10 when it first came out”.

I don’t recall GoldenEye ever getting a 4/10.
