Haze writer Rob Yescombe has likened his game to GoldenEye after it was given just 4.5 out of 10 in its IGN review.
The upcoming PS3-exclusive shooter had previously received high marks from Famitsu and the Italian PlayStation Magazine.
"My thoughts are 'Owch'. No, wait - 'MEGAowch'," Yescombe told PSU.
"Haze has had mixed reviews, but even GoldenEye got a 4/10 when it first came out. With a 9/10 in the Italian PSM, and an extremely positive review in Famitsu, we're looking forward to people playing Haze and making a judgement for themselves."
You'll be able to do that this Friday when the game is released, or by reading our review that should be up at around the same time.
