This is a good game overall. The only thing that gets me is the fact that your not able to skip though the death sequence. Nobody likes to die in a game. In this game you die alot, and it can become very frustrating.
Too Human is a visually stunning game that has a futuristic outlook on the nordic myth! Awesome story so far and even thou it gets really hard this is one game that has me continuously coming back for more! Rent It NOW!!!
After finishing the single player campaign just recently, I figure I have enough data to weigh in on the latest game from Silicon Knights. Rather than bore everyone with specifics, I'm going to make a list of Pros and Cons:
Pros: Solid graphics and Smooth gameplay engine Interesting storyline Great voice talent Unique characters, enemies, and items (highly customizable)
Cons: Limited control of player camera Unusual controller layout Relatively short campaign (about 10 hours)
I think the most appealing part of this game is the online co-operative play option, which is missing in many of the premiere RPG-type games on the 360 console. However, this title does have some drawbacks that take away from a high rating: the unusual control scheme does take some time to get used to, and it doesn't always work as intended... targeting specific enemies in a crowd is very difficult, and sometimes impossible. The camera control is also fairly limited.
I was also surprised to find out that while the levels are fairly large, there are only five of them, leaving me with the "unresolved" feeling when I completed the campaign... obviously Silicon Knights decided to leave room for a sequel.
All in all, this is a good entry into the large field of hybrid RPGs, and that's how I rated it. It's a worthwhile rental for sure, but I would recommend trying it out before buying it.
