+ Successful combat system
+ Breathtaking locations
+ GreatMusic sounds, dubbing
+ Excellent graphic and animations

- Minor bugs
Seems like a great review to me and I personally cannot wait till this game is released and put onto the shelves.

Haze Multiplayer Beta Announced

In a recent interview that SPoNG had with Derek Littlewood, some information was revealed about a Haze Mulitplayer Beta. Here is the direct quote:

SPOnG: Any plans for a multi-player beta?

DL: We've been discussing multi-player beta, it may just end up being multi-player demo, but we are looking to do a pre-release, a playable version of the multi-player.

RY: Everyone loves to play an unfinished game. [Grins]
Couldn't get more official than that. I guess now we just wait until the Beta is released.
