Korean PC Game Rips-Off Team Fortress 2

The name of this game is H.A.V.E. Online. It's a PC title, and an open beta is supposed to go down sometime this year. The game looks strangely familiar. An homage?

Even with the otaku toy twist, the game is a little too close to Team Fortress 2 for some on the Korean internet, where the game is kicking up a mini-controversy. The game is being called "an embarrassment" to the Korean game industry.

H.A.V.E.'s publisher SK iMedia has not made a comment about the Team Fortress 2 likeness. Check out the trailer comparison shots and wonder to yourself why they called this game H.A.V.E. and not Toy Fortress Story.

Missed opportunity, that.

DISCUSSION

I think it's mostly because the music and some effect, the rendering is similar but who cares? the characters style is quite different so the setting.

The music is a total ripoff and doesn't fit well the game, seems that several gameplay stuff and weapons are very similar, sticky nades, baseball bats, the minigun is almost identical too.

Bad, because with a little effort more on the design side they could do an original title
