This game is good and all but some bad things about it as I give a big review of the game!

Overdosing aint that fun at all, since You loose half of Your control and sight. You start to randomly shoot anyone, yes even allies since everyone is black ( not african black ) just pure-pitch black and You really cant tell from friend or foe, soon after You get out of the overdose and Youll be back to normal...for now, expect to overdose ALOT if Your mantel because the Rebel always have at least 1 tool/tactic to use on You to make You overdose.
You then capture Gabriel Merion IE : Skin-Coat in a copper plant, as Duvall ( Your ally seargent ) comes and takes Him in an elevator and well, cuts off something of Hes ( Not where You think! ). You then take Him into a Mantel Chopper and then Duvall goes off He's nut at Skin-Coat because He got hes Rebels to take/steal Mantel Nectar which You NEVER find out WHY! Then You hold out Your pistol and aim it at Duvall, Duvall stops and explains how Your a **** ect, something goes wrong, one of Your other allies shoots the pilot by accident, they crash into a deserted swamp.
You then 'wake-up' and Your in this freakyish swamp, You have no nectar and no weapons, You cant see any bodies around You at all, which also doesnt make sence! Wheres Skin-Coat, Duvall, Pilot and Co-pilot, Watchstrap and Peashey? Where are they, You dont see them at all. Anyway You try to contact base which they cannot hear You at all, but You can hear them, they talk about all this stuff about how they have crashed and that they will kill You 'Shane Carpenter' everyone kill-on-sight on Shane Carptenter, this is code 'HAZE' which is most likley where the game gets its name from! You have no idea of where You are and where to go, so You get an idea of following fire-flies, silly but if You were getting off a very powerful drug and had no idea where You were, then following fire-flies wouldnt be a bad idea at all.
You go looking around and stuff to try and get a concept of the whole area, a sudden noise rises in volume, continues and continues, then it instally stops and Duvalls face pops up ( black and white ) shouting out " JUST AN ANIMAL! " which is ment to scare people as people posted them being scared on the forums, which I didnt because I have personally seen heaps of screamer animations, pop-ups, they dont scare Me much at all, and this one was obviously coming because of the noise, suprised Me a bit because a big realeased game had a screamer face, I just laughed. Then You follow the fire flies, then this little Rebel guy says follow Me, You say "You real?" He just says something like 'follow me'. You follow Him, some Special Op's troops start shooting You and all, but then You escape in this little hole with the Rebel guy. Your vision spins around with this weird noise quite a few times, then You pass out.
You wake up in a village, Merino gets You, then You pass out again, You wake up again and thats when You pritty much become rebel beause You saved Merino by stopping Duvall killing Him. I wont spoil to much of the game but it really is good if You respect its aspects of it as a game.
Good that online You can choose from deathmatch, Team death match and the new objective based which is pretty new and excited as each team battles out having an objective to do as on one map, the Rebels have to open up two security doors and then steal 4 nectar crates from VIA a steam of water ( river ) and as Mantel pritty much go along, gunning down Rebels in all 6 maps, Mantel pritty much defend and doesnt require much team work as Rebels will overcome Mantel if there is teamwork involved which there isnt really because all people online just kill, kill and kill, no team work so that lets You down and gets You to do the objective. Alot of people team kill, since there are no online admins to kick and ban people. Also people cheat the online stats thing for kills, head-shots, everything. They make an online game, get a friend or more to join, get their friend(s) to keep on going to one spot while one guy keeps on killing them getting good stats to outcome people who actrully try to kill people! That is a very big let down for online, Ive seen it happen alot and You look through peoples stats and they obviously do that stat cheating.
Each sides are equally balanced very well as terms for Rebel VS Mantel, some say Rebel are better, others Mantel, they just REALLY mean that their personally better with one and not the other so its obvious that each team is balanced VERY well. The game play is very good but there is some bits online where You just shout out " Surley that f****g killed him! " Or, " One shot with a assault rifle?! " ect and ect, it can be dodgey but, nothing You can do as most online games are dodgey!
The new four player co-op ONLINE is quite new and very good because it allows players from anywhere allowing them to drop in and out from any game online. If You are the host then You can hold a spot for a private friend in Your PSN friends list, You can have a spot for 1, 2 and 3 Online friends so it can be just You and Your PSN friends.Useally people kick because Your better then them like advancing while their back doing nothing, so if Your kicked dont enter back, their obviously stupid and have no teamwork.
All the guns feel and reload really well to, the main winners are pritty obvious, Rebel and Mantel Assault Rifles, Mantel Shotgun and Mantel Sniper since the sniper is one hit kills, yep, even on the foot, arm. The rebel flame-thrower sucks, only good if Your in groups because the flame slowley drains HP and as I said good in groups because Youll have a couple guys shooting at Him, and flame on Him, not only is it bad for the player in game but also out of game, He has to shake the controller to shake of the flame and also shoot back, quite mentally challenging for a bit but Youll get use to it. Rebels have many sneaky abilites like Weapon steal which allows You to steal any weapon from a Mantel guy, walk up to Him, Punch, take weapon, *BLAAM!*, its very cool doing it since it is all done very well. Rebels can Dive and roll around the joint to dodge bullets, it doesnt make You get to point A and B quicker, if anyting itd be slower. Also rig any grenades to be a mine, just rig it, and burry it and lure a Mantel guy to come to it then *BOOM!* and He'd most lilley be dead if not, just a couple shots will do it! You can change the controlls for ANYTHING, any vehicle controls and personal controls, any command to any button and vise-versa as it can suit for Your likling. The game has in-built controlls You can change to which are very good to, have a flick through them and if none suit, then just make a custom control and have it to Your like! In campagin You can also change from four difficulties from Easy, Medium, Hard and Extra Hard to also suit Your level of difficulty liking.
If You aint sure about buying it, rent it, it is sure worth a rent!
I personally give this a 8.0/10, its a very good playstation 3 game, without HD may not be awesome but he graphics are nice, with HD its amazing so if You want the full potential from this game, get HD and maybe surround sound, then Youll be talking an awesome one of a kind shooter! Hope You liked this review and find it usefull at all and thanks for reading!
