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.
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. >_>

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.
@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.
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.
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.
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?
