GameDaily editor writes: While GTA IV is "absolutely critical" during the first half, Microsoft's Jeff Bell has singled out Silicon Knights' Too Human as a sleeper hit this year on Xbox 360.
Yes I think it's going to be a sleeper hit from 2008... I've been waiting for this forever and I'm a huge fan of Silicon Knights (thanks to Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain & Eternal Darkness) I cannot wait.
This game seems like a a cross between phantasy star online and devil may cry. Its should be good.
How is this a sleeper hit? If I owned a 360 it would be one of my most anticpiated titles for 08. Alan Wake and Too Human should be tied as the top two games for 360. Someone here needs to check the dictionary. Bioshock is a sleeper hit, but Too Human we have seen about this game a for a long time and Dennis Dyack has been hyping this game for a long time.
We been waiting for this since 07 how is it going to be a sleeper if lots of folks been waiting for it?
it's going to be a sleeper hit because of all the negative attention and press this game has garnered... i know a lot of people who gave up on this title because of delays and that E3 showing mishap.. i can see Alan Wake, Halo Wars, Gears of War 2, Ninja Gaiden 2, Lost Odyssey, Banjo Threeie, Star Wars: Force Unleashed, etc all being games people are anticipating WAAAAYYYY more than Too Human.
absolutley cannot wait
Have or are over looking this title cause of the court case. But BOTH companys have that it will not effect the release date. But this game is gonna get some damn hard game time from me. SK have not disappointed me yet no matter how long it took to release.
I have been following this game for a while. I just want to play it now. After all this game has been through it has to be good.
I don't think so. This game has got alot of attention of gamers. PS owners as well are really interested in this game as this is they type of games that the PS crowd are more interested in. I have no doubt this game will rock as it is done by SK and is 1 of 2 reasons why i am buying an x360 this year.
PS owners shouldnt have any interest in an Xbox 360 games unless they are considering purchasing a 360, as you are. But, To say that Too Human is "they type of games that the PS crowd are more interested in", I completely disagree with. That's like saying since KZ2 or COD4 is an FPS that only the "Xbox crowd" can be interested in it. Most gamers like different types of genres, as do I. Can't wait for too Human, the co-op aspect seems really cool. Next to Mass Effect & Gears 2, this is actually one of my most wanted games for 2008. I just hope the gameplay lives up to expectations. SK is a good studio with a great history, hopefully they will get Too Human right.
Halo 3 sold 8 million on a installbase of 16 million. What dose this say?. Halo 3,Bioshock,Gears of war, Mass Effect are the most high profile exclusive games on x360 sofar. What do they all have in common?. When i said the PS crowd are more interested in this game i mean exactly that. They are interested as these are the type of games that normally do well on the PS. Have you heard of God of War?. Ask any PS owner what games they wish would be on the PS and you will most likely get either NG2 or Too Human. I didn't in anyway said the PS crowd ARE ONLY interested in these games(Action Adventure). Read my post carefully before you jump to conclusion.
Sleeper hit for sure:)) I felt the sleeper hit on the original Xbox was "Thief III Deadly Shadows".
I'll be suprised if this even comes out this year. I mean be serious, do you think the game development was going soooo well that they decided to sue Epic for fun? This game will prolly be mediocre, would have been better with a engine more suited for its style of gameplay. I'm just speculation but I don't see any goty material here.
That's because Dennis Dyack hates reviewers so his game is still under wraps. I expect the game to be pretty good. It may convince to buy a 360 but the flood of PS3 games that will be coming out late 08 and early 09 is scary for my wallet.
Great Game, a 2008 GOTY that's for sure
Great game?maybe,Game Of The Year 2008?I doubt it,especially with all the heavy competition(MGS4,Resistance 2,Killzone 2,LBP,GTA IV etc.)
man this gamer zone thing is great- i feel like i can have a mature discussion with you without the fear of you calling me a "sony tard" or something anyway i strongly disagree with you, too human will be great no doubt, but it has waaaaay too much heavy competition to come out on top- i think the top 5 contenders are: 1)MGS4 2)FF13 3)SSBB 4)Resistance 2 5)NG2
I believe the GOTY contenders from the 360 side will be Fable 2 and Project Offset. I'm not saying Too Human is bad. It might very well be a sleeper. But also, lets not forget the PS3 has many top contenders this year as well.
came out of nowhere and snatched many GOTY honor's. I'm thinking there might be something not even on everyone's radar that might take GOTY. SK have a good pedigree but I have to agree it's coming up against some very hard competition with the likes of LBP and MGS. I can't wait to find out!
@10.1 Also probable GotY possibilities: 1) Halo Wars -- said to be the first good / best RTS on a console, developed by Bungie & Ensemble(the Age of Empires series) 2) Huxley -- 120 simultanious "MMO FPS" 3) Left 4 Dead -- no doubt. 4) Ninja Gaiden 2 5) Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction -- great track record, incredibly innovative series 6) World in Conflict
I enjoy hack and slash and this will be an enjoyable one. Plus controversy sells and with Epic and Silicon Knights duking it out right now... wonder how red those guys faces get
but sleeper? no
Love the avatar.
Check out the gameplay vids. It looks like too much of a slow hack and slash for me. It's been in development for quite a while and it got canceled like 3 times.
I have seen the latest video for this game and all I can say is "Ahh Hell NO Iam NOT buying this, lol". The combat is absolutily horrible. I had it reserved...but not anymore.
The game looked like a futuristic Dynasty Warriors to me, I don't really see the hype behind the game but I'm waiting for some other previews so...we'll see, but so far this game is off my 360 radar.
"and it got canceled like 3 times." Care to provide some evidence for this?
I don't know about canceling 3 times, but this game was supposed to be released on the original Playstation
Hmmm for me I think the sleeper hit would be LBP (I know for damn sure I will get tons of disagrees) but I know for sure this game will look beautiful and feel really good due to the fact that Silicone Knights are using a Modifided Unreal 3 engine. I love the hack and slash type of game play so I will be playing this game alot.
From an advertising stand point no way LBP could be a sleeper hit. Sony is going to be showing that off to everyone who will watch or listen.
LBP a sleeper hit? lol not even close,LBP will fight head to head with MGS4 for Game Of The Year 2008
it's sleeper hit on the 360, but i doubt that LBP will be the sleeper hit, it's gonna be advetised like mad(which is something they should do more) and plus a lot of people are already expecting big things
Sk aren't using the unreal engine for Too Human, they are now using their own proprietory engine after dumping UE3. Im looking forward to this game since they showed the trailer a while back of the bot attacking the bar. And the footage they have shown lately looks good too, just hope the control scheme they have employed for it works well.
we are all arone
I'm personally looking forward to it. Already have it reserved at GameStop and what not.
sleeper hit? more like sh!tter hit.. MWAHAHAHHAHAHHAHA hey open zone is there for a reason anyway too human is looking great- still not enough to make me buy a 360 though (although combined with NG2 its getting very close)
This game is going to rock! It's one of my most anticipated games in 2008! I think it will be a sleeper hit and do very well!
this game got canceled a couple of times because it sucked so bad. it's been in development for over 10 years and previous developers gave up on it until silicon knights got their hands on it and now it just looks like some mediocre hack and slash
....its been in development for long enough....i hope the final product reflects this and surpases all of our expectations, it has the potential too.
Noway NG2 actually convinces me to not buy a 360 because it confirms that the 360 game technology isn't getting better. NG2 looks like 1st generation xbox 360 game. Too Human on the other hand brings something different as Dennis Dyack promises.
right. anyway, this games looks okay, nothing special at all. ninja gaiden 2 looks WAY better then this crap. and to be honest, the only game that would make me want the 360.
didnt crackdown sell like 1.5+ million copies?
It's questionable how Crackdown would've sold without the Halo 3 beta hype though..
what do you guys think? should i get a 360 for this game or not? i know it hasn't been released yet, but from what you guys have seen so far- i want to know your opinion
However, get a 360 for Fable 2. And while you have the 360, get Mass Effect, Gears, and Bioshock. Those games are really good bro.
well it depends, if you like this type of game than i say all for it, but i would recommend that you wait a bit for some more news about this game, so you can make sure if it turns out to your liking
wait for reviews, i dont see the point in buying a console baised on one game, and considering the videos dont look that great this game could go either way, im expecting it to be a huge flop but if its not then im not going to be dissapointed
at least for me its not a good enough game to go pick up a 360 however fable 2 gears 1 & 2 ME and Alan Wake are
If you like to play videogames, you should have an Xbox 360. Gears, Halo, Bioshock, ME are absolute must play games. In 2008, there will be just as many great titles. If Too Human isnt your thing, there's dozens of other great titles coming.
Z0MG OPEN ZONE SPAM! 360 IS TEH CRAPZ! AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA RROD RROD RROD RROD RROD KZ2 MGS4 FFXIII BBQ !!! I've decided to take on the persona of a Playstation fanboy :) Although I do like the look of this game :) Sure pays to have all 3 consoles...now I can enjoy Too Human AND MGS4 :)
You could say that about any unknow game coming out this year. More new ip's i'm happy.
Until you watch the gameplay videos. Not the close up blurry-bloom stills.
if all pans out well for Silicon Knoghts, this game will do good for the 360
This game is going to be great. lets hope SK produce a great game
Award winning marketing genius/guru Jeff Bell (Corporate VP for Global Marketing, Interactive Entertainment Business, E&D division) put it best when he said that "we wouldn't trade places with anyone" and he's absolutely right, the Xbox 360 is in a enviably strong position right now. But it must make the right decisions to move forward and this is a crucial time for the Xbox 360s future. With the high caliber of diverse and creative talent heading up the Xbox team these days I have no doubt that the success of the Xbox 360 will continue to grow even stronger. Too Human will undoubtedly be yet another AAA title in the Xbox 360s stellar lineup and will easily go on to sell over a million copies
yay Zhuk is back i have missed our dear old walking poster make sure you dont go into the gamer zone mmmkaay?
on the 360 are easy. Just make it the biggest achievement game ever. 4000 points!!!! BUT REALLY i've known of this game 4ever and 2be a sleeper hit doesnt it have 2 be kinda secret? Like you hear about maybe a month or 2 b4 and those PS3 ppl flaming this up and bringing up GOTY get real
4000 achievement points = million seller!! FTW! I think the game is going to be deep, more deep than you can get from a screenshot or small gameplay video. I have to agree with your PS3 comment, I think the new site is going to be a tough adjustment for many. I can already see the mod's have deleted a comment from a known PS3 XXXXX (nice work mods!) It was so easy to come into a 360 thread and completely derail it while getting 100 agree's for any baseless 360 bash you can come up with.
Was that directed to me? I'm not a PS3 XXXXXX, well, I hope I'm not :P But seriously, it will be an adjustment. The subject we were on was the difference between the Gamer Zone and Open Zone, and a little later, it was deleted. So I'm thinking it was deleted because we got off topic. Oh Well, I'm glad to see GZ is working. Oh BTW: about your 10.4 comment, I don't think Too Human is below people's radar, quite the contrary, EVERYONE knows about it, since it's been in development for quite some time. However, I do agree with you thinking there might be something not even on everyone's radar that might take GOTY. Which I think would be Project Offset, no one has been talking about it. That game looks amazing. My humble opinion of course.
A game doesn't have to be a secret to be a sleeper hit... that would be like calling that new Soldier of Fortune game a sleeper hit because it was "unveiled" like 3 weeks before it was released lol
it is anything like Eternal Darkness count me in.
I hope so but too me it looks like another generaic game. I don't think it's going to be very good but if it is I'll be happy.
I remember reading an article on EGM calling Too Human the greatest epic game ever created. But that was before the disastrous demo. But it looks like they are back on track. This game looks to be as big as the great action games like Ninja Gaiden and God of War.
