3.0 out of 5 stars Too Err is Human September 16, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bluntly, Too Human is not a great game. Yet I can't get enough of it.

Too Human is eccentric developers Silicon Knights' first original game since Eternal Darkness six years ago. Too Human's concept has been floating around for ten years: initially a PS1 title to follow up Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, then moved to GC with SK's exclusivity deal with Nintendo, then to Xbox 360 when that deal was up. [You can still visit online gaming magazines and view screenshots of each cancelled iteration]. That said, Too Human for the Xbox 360 has only been in development since the system launched, but it still has a lot to live up to.

So how did it turn out? Well if you rely on mainstream critics, bad. Very bad. From what I can tell though most of the very bad response seems to be from either a lack of time spent with the game, or confusion over exactly what type of game this is supposed to be. It seems many people either think this is a Ninja Gaiden/Devil May Cry type action beat 'em up or a Mass Effect/Oblivion western role playing game. In Silicon Knights tradition, the reality is that it's neither and both of these things.

Too Human's closest relative is I feel the Phantasy Star Online series. Like PSO/PSU, Too Human is a dungeon crawler loot game with action elements. Like PSO, you can choose a class based on close combat, ranged combat or healing. Like PSO, you are expected to run the same levels repeatedly to gain levels and gear until you are either infinitely powerful or bored to tears. Too Human's combat system has a lot more action elements than PSO and they are much better implemented, but essentially the two games are very similar.

So knowing what this game is "supposed to be," first I'll discuss what I feel this game does wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game of its GENRE August 26, 2008
By Kalidas
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me say that I too like many use metacritic and gamerrankings.com as a guide when I am looking for a new game. For the most part I agree with the reviews and average scores. This game however is a bit of conundrum in that 'professional reviewers' gave it bad scores and most 'regular gamers' have given it great scores. I usually do not write reviews, but this one time this game is getting an unfair reviews.

To start of with when reviewing games one has to review games and compare them to compeating games or games within its genre. One cannot compare this game to Halo 3, Gears or Wars, CoD, 4, etc and then compain that the game 'sucks'. The best game to compare to is the gold standard for this genre and that would be Diablo 2. If you loved diablo 2 (or World of Warcraft) then you know what type of game you are getting yourself into. It is a game where you mindlessly kill 1000's upon 1000's of bad guys, mindlessly loot, mindlessly treasure hunt, and cointinue to try and achive perfection for your character (Collect all pieces of 'elite gear', complete elite charms, etc). And then after that start all over again with another character type. The whole concept of skill trees, modifiers, resistances, etc play significant role. If you never liked Diablo or World of Warcraft (or any other similar games) then you are not going to like this game. Don't even bother trying to play the game because you will never understand the 'concept' of the game. If you do like this genre, then read on.

The game mechanics are 'different'. We (as gamers on consoles) are so used to FPS controls than anything different automatically becomes bad. Its like PC gamers claiming that the only way to play shooters is with KB/mouse. It is not the only way, it is that individuals preference.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you can stand the camera, you'll love this game August 25, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My advice is to pick up the demo or something and give it a spin. If the camera (which is terrible and basically completely out of your control) doesn't ruin it for you, then buy the game, because that's really the only down side to it

The game itself reminds me heavily of Mass Effect, except without the conversation trees. The art and level design, especially in the base area, looks like it was done by the same people

Anyway, the game is easy to get into, has a somewhat hard to understand but passably interesting story, and there's lots of replay value, so like i said, if the camera doesn't make you throw it down in disgust then you should be good to go

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the reviews fool you August 22, 2008
By Legend
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I was hesitant to purchase this game based on the reviews from sites such as ign.com and gamespot.com, but I started to hear people say that the game is a lot of fun so I picked up a copy. They were right! The game isn't perfect by any means (the camera does take a lot of getting used to and can be a pain sometimes) but overall it is entertaining and fun. My first night playing it I put in 5 hours. If you enjoy games where you constantly search for upgraded equipment you will get hooked on this game. This is definitely not game-of-the-year material, but I would highly suggest at least trying it out if you enjoy games that center heavily around searching for new items. Personally I give this game a 4/5, but for the general public I say it will probably be more of a 3/5.

2.0 out of 5 stars Madness meets Genius September 3, 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I just finished Too Human and I can only recommend it to Players who are dying for a hack n' slash for the 360. This game has some great innovation and some horrendous flaws.

Story:
The story is a mix between the Matrix and Norse Mythology. As the story began I felt like I was reading the 8th novel in a series because all sorts of epic things were happening and I had no clue what was going on. Apparently, the Norse gods live in the matrix, fight monsters with swords and laser guns, and travel through cyber space. My friends told me the story was awful and I really tried to like it, but I just couldn't. The main character, Baldur is voiced by Crispin Freeman of Hellsing. I'm a big fan of Hellsing... still couldn't get into the story.

Gameplay:
The gameplay basically sucks. You use the triggers to fire your long range weapons and the right analog stick to point to the enemy that you want to attack with a melee weapon. (sword, hammer...) If you double tap the stick, you launch the enemy into the air and you can jump combo them or shoot them as they fall. This is pretty fun. However, often times, you target enemies that you don't want to target. To make matters worse, some enemies explode or poison you. So, you end up dying from time to time by accident. What really breaks the game is that unless you play the Bio-Ops class, you cannot heal yourself. That's right. No health potions, regeneration, heal spells... nothing. The only way to get health is from random enemy drops. Sometimes, you can kill 30 guys and they don't drop anything. Other times, you can kill 3 and 2 of them drop health. This is extremely frustrating because you may be near death, and there's nothing that you can do.
