Too Human: GDC Gameplay Fails to Impress Punters

Too Human seems to have been in development since the dawn of time -- almost as long as Duke Nukem Forever -- yet Silicon Knights (Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem) has continued to push its pseudo hack-and-slash RPG hybrid in order to bring it exclusively to Microsoft's Xbox 360.

As with any game stuck so long in development limbo, expectations for Too Human are predictably astronomical and critical eyes and tongues (predominantly those belonging to PS3 fanboys) are even more sharply attuned to ongoing glimpses ahead of the game's eventual release.

This is serisouly gonna flop. Cant u tell it looks like crap?

The games I'm getting for my 360 this year or that I think will be good games are Fable 2(could become a massive hit), Left 4 dead(cult classic hit like Little Big Planet will be),Splinter Cell(maybe)

And then Gears 2 is gonna be badass. If they add more people in multplayer and I relaly hope they dont make the story SOOOO generic. Where ur these big ape guys like "hell yea" and the whole point of the game is aliens coming out of the ground. The story can be good in shooters now. Halo and Bioscock and Resisance 2 and Killzone 2 will have good storys.

They have good games they just need more HITS. Splinter Cell is a good franchise but just not like a BLOCKBUSTER franchise. Def. a good series though.

I don't think this game is going to flop at all. To be honest, if it delivers on it's promises and really does impress, It will be a real hit for 360 fanbase.

The tech behind the game is amazing but am not sure if am sold on the whole idea yet. I think what they are trying to do is a bit too ambitious and only Blizzard would be able to pull something off.

Also, if you look at the videos that are currently out, it seems the right analog stick will work as a mouse for the game. It might seem very uncomfortable though but who knows ? Gotta wait to see more I guess.

I haven't really had time to really read all the previews out on this game from GDC but am curious to know if this game really did leave up to the hype.

The only thing I have heard and read around is that, the game is very impressive 'technically' and the screens look omgf*ckingawesome, but I need to see more.

sonarus3533d ago

this game has suffered enough especially from me. I was quite impressed with the last trailer i wish the game the best of luck

poos33533d ago

the head line is a total lie .

ry-guy3533d ago

Also, all the rest of the articles say how it's achievements far out weigh it's perceived short comings at this point and looks to be a solid game. So what I don't understand is why this article heats up so much (the only negative one) and all the positives ones are barely moving.

It has to do with this site being dominated by PS3 fans.

Hold on, havent we had about 4 threads today praising the GDC showing of Too Human?

Ares843533d ago

..but for some reason this game reminds me to Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom, but set in the future.

spandexxking3533d ago (Edited 3533d ago )

reminds me of heavenly sword but with a leveling system!

Devil May Cry meets Mass Effect.

TheMART3533d ago (Edited 3533d ago )

Well it'll always be better then the overhyped PS3 line up of 2007

Remember Lair which would be THE game of 2007?
Or Heavenly Sword?

Only one exclusive PS3 game reached the 90% average review mark, Uncharted.

It's still like this: 360 exclusives do the job. PS3 fans still try to make themselve feel better by jumping on every 360 exclusive that might fail. In reality 360 exclusives actually most of the times deliver and PS3 exclusives certainly didn't do that enough.

So Too Human, I bet it'll rock anyway and we'll see if it hits 90% average review or higher, or that the Unreal 3 engine trouble have hit them more then expected.

BTW read this one:

AllroundGamer3533d ago

yeah it definitely will have 90% average reviews, because MS will desperately send money to the reviewers to give it a higher score... this game looks rather mediocre, but since they are no other overhyped xbox exclusives for the 2008 (well maybe Fable 2), this game will have to do for the xbox fanboys.
btw. "360 exclusives do the job", like Bomberman Act Zero and Hour of Victory.

TheMART3533d ago

Allroundgamer

Ofcourse. Because 360 exclusives got reviewed higher AVERAGE, MS has given money to all the reviewers around the world MEH

IF so, why didn't Sony have done the same? Conspiracy theory's in the minds of PS3 fans, it sounds pretty silly.

Lets take Metacritics, all reviews combined:

XBOX 360:

1 BioShock 96
2 Orange Box, The 96
3 Gears of War 94
4 Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The 94
5 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 94
6 Halo 3 94
7 Rock Band 93
8 Guitar Hero II 92
9 Mass Effect 91
10 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 90
11 Forza Motorsport 2 90

PS3:

1 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 94
2 Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The 93
3 Rock Band 92

And I'll put Uncharted with that 3 because its on 90% on Gamerankings.

Which makes one exclusive game on PS3 on or over 90%, with about 5 console exclusives on the 360 side.

Well ok, the 360 is out double as long, but still, the PS3 games fails to impress still even now.

So stop moaning over games like Too Human. Sony would love to have games like that on board of the PS3

Fishy Fingers3533d ago (Edited 3533d ago )

forget what metacritic has to say, what did YOU think of the games, what did I think of the games... thats all that matters as we are the ones playing them.

Im still trying to get my head around why so many people on this site use sales figures and review scores as bragging rights.

A review is simply someones opinion, when its ME playing the games its only MY opinion that matters.

fenderputty3533d ago

was supposed to be moved to the "other section".

Fishy Fingers3533d ago

Me? I dont believe i said anything offensive.
