Gameradar writes: Much has been said about the Nordic adventure's unique story. The sci-fi twist is a left-field approach considering the Norse mythology inspirations, and playable flashback sequences crop up with some regularity to deepen the tale. But although the story is a crucial part of any RPG, this game can't be pigeonholed so easily. Too Human isn't simply about stats and numbers.
Spread over four levels, you'll take your character Baldur and turn him into the man you want to play as. Five classes - that's Commando, Defender, Bio-Mechanic, Berserker and Champion - are on offer to cater for every taste, and after making that decision you can tweak every move, weapon and armour piece to your heart's content. In fact, aside from Baldur's physique, you can customise absolutely anything you want.
The danger is that Too Human might be trying too hard. The game is aiming to reach some simply massive targets, and given the blend of genres it's arguably one of the most ambitious Xbox 360 titles to date, not the run-of-the-mill scrapper it first appeared to be. But Silicon Knights are more than equal to the task. Given their pedigree, Baldur's machinations could turn into something quite special.
