This game is really cheap now, so I was wondering whether it's interesting enough to lay down $3 for or whether it's just generic and bad.

Cheapest religion I've ever heard of.

#3 Posted by believer258 (11773 posts) -

Serious answer: I've never played it but from what I've heard you should just buy a cheap cheeseburger instead.

#4 Posted by laserbolts (5317 posts) -

Dude it's 3 dollars. Buy it if you're curious.

#5 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3152 posts) -

Haze or 10 piece chicken nuggets at Mickey D's. We all know what the right answer is.

I hear it's "the shit". Or just "shit", not too sure.

Only $3? I won't blame you if you end up thinking 'What have I got to lose?' :P

You may end up being surprised in one way or another*. So its completely your call. >_>

*(More likely to mold itself into some semblance of vague positive energy if you have someone to do the split screen with. ;) )

Sure, $3 to sate your curiosity is entirely reasonable. But, personally, I wouldn't want to make the time investment to actually play it if I could be doing something else.

I don't think it's worth your time so I couldn't even say it was worth 1 penny.

Haze is the shit.
 
I guess if you have some time to kill, go for it.  The Free Radical guys have done some great things before this, so I'm sure there's gotta be something redeeming in there.  Jeff's review says "While there’s nothing about Haze that’s out-and-out broken or completely terrible, it doesn’t come close to meeting the expectations that today’s first-person shooter market creates."  So don't expect outstanding.

Remember that time we thought Haze was going to be a good game... oh good times

@believer258: I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO!!!!

#25 Posted by nohthink (1223 posts) -

@Rainbowkisses: I'm gonna tell you right now that Haze is a terrible game. It's just mediocre with no arc and it tries way too hard. But with three dollars, there is really nothing to lose. I would say go for it if you really want to know how crappy that game is. More of an academic purpose.

#26 Posted by alexl86 (620 posts) -

I'd pay $3 for any game. Hell, I'd pay $3 for a game I already own (and have).
 
If you're at all curious, and even if you only play it for an hour, $3/hour is pretty good value for non-RPGs. For the record, I've never played it, but if I had a PS3, I would buy it if I found it for that price.

#27 Posted by BlatantNinja23 (930 posts) -

honestly no.... waste of 3 bucks? probably not... waste of time? yes

#28 Posted by ThePaleKing (613 posts) -

I paid something like $3 for Dark Sector, and ended up really enjoying it. If you're curious, yeah, it's probably less harmful than the cheeseburger you could buy with it.

#29 Posted by Stonyman65 (2656 posts) -

I'd say any game is worth $3 dude. Hell, I've lost more change in my couch than $3!

#30 Posted by EVO (3889 posts) -

There's probably a thousand games out there more deserving of your time and money.

#31 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2216 posts) -

For $3 why not and if you end up not liking and not finishing the game then at least you can say you only spent $3.

#32 Posted by ManMadeGod (1559 posts) -

Gerstmann for me is a religion, and Giantbomb is the SHIT.

#33 Posted by Alexandru (301 posts) -

I don't like to have shit games showing on my account. This is why I would refuse a free copy too.

#34 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

I'd rather spend $3 on a cup of coffee.

#39 Posted by Rainbowkisses (472 posts) -

Opinions seem to be split 50/50 on whether Haze is even worth someone's time. I was curious enough so I decided to lay down $3 to hit up that kind of rush. When I get around to playing through it I might post my thoughts on it.

#40 Posted by Bollard (5394 posts) -

NO WAY MANS. This game killed TimeSplitters 4. Fuck this game.

#41 Posted by Marcsman (3177 posts) -

Sorry no. A piece of shit is not worth $3.

I remember when Haze was going to be the next Halo, that worked out nicely, didn't it? But for $3, maybe buy it? Fuck, I don't know. Buy it just so you can burn it.

#46 Posted by triple07 (1196 posts) -

From the demo I played I would say no... Not an interesting game at all.

We need to get some Kid Rock in here to confirm authenticity.

No one seems to have noticed I already made a decision.

Hold on a fucking second. I've never gone to Gamespot while Jeff and the gang were still there. I've listened to the entire Bombcast catalog twice now, and you're telling me that there was a proto-Bombcast called The Hotspot?
