Haze (PS3) ReviewThe fiercely competitive first-person-shooter genre welcomes its latest competitor, Free Radical Design’s Haze. The folks behind the TimeSplitters series certainly have their work cut out for them as Haze is not only an FPS following in the bar-raising footsteps of last year’s BioShock, Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3, but it’s also the designers' first next-gen title. If all that pressure wasn’t enough, Haze also faces the usual questions and comparisons: Is it a system seller? Is it the PS3’s answer to Halo? Was it worth the wait? Unfortunately, as a very average offering, Haze won’t fare well under such brutal scrutiny, and will likely land in the pile alongside other serviceable, but already-forgotten FPS efforts like Blacksite: Area 51 and Turok. It’s not bad, mind you, but to truly shine in the cramped shooter market, you’d better be charting at least an 85 on the industry’s success barometer Metacritic. A 60 or 70 won’t cut it, and Haze will be lucky to crack the former with its last-gen graphics, generic design and familiar feel.
