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.

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

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
