is it better than the other co-op shooter?(army of 2 or rainbowsix vegas2)if you played those games that is
ive played co-op on haze with 4 people and i can confirm it runs just as smooth as singleplayer, conects really quickly.
army of two was good but that was only 2 player co-op, and although a good game was kinda sluggish with arkward aiming control. vegas 2 co-op is good but unless you have good connection all round for all the players it tends to lag here and there.
in haze i think its dedicated servers, it runs superbly. also to note is has that vegas 2 lobby system where you can choose your match with a display of connection bars for each game, and inviting buddies into matches is also easy.
also to note, comparing army of two and vegas 2, is that the aiming system and shooting of haze is exactly like the call of duty 4 model, ie direct and sharp
the game also features a kinda large battlefield, its not that linear alley-way approach thats on vegas 2 or army of two. plus you wont find any bullet/ammo meters they are all displayed on the weapon you have, i love the smoking barrel of your rifle adds a neat change IMO
so yes from what ive played so far the co-op looks ace compared to vegas2 and army of two. i think someone asked regarding the voice acting, well voices are good but it has that cheesy "aliens movie" type of 1 liners ie at the start when they are boasting about the effects of necter one of the guys says things like "whooo im the baddest muther***** about. you get the drift.
the only thing i can think of that free radical made the decision to lower the native resolution and upscale to 720p will obviously be to have the offline and online seemless and super smooth especially in 4 player co-op and with heavy action it retains smoothness.
for exmple at the start you and your guys are dropped off in the jungle and a dropship is right infront of you shooting at the rebels, and you can see rpg flares coming from rebel side all over the place and its still retains smoothness.
to be honest with you, i cant see why people are moaning regarding the visuals, it looks very very very good indeed and with a unique timesplittery freeradicalish look to it
