Why Too Human is Better Than You Think

Although Too Human's development has been haunted by a disappointing E3 '05 debut, technical problems with the Unreal engine, and some incredibly harsh critiques from the gaming community,The Exploding Barrel is here to tell you why the latest Silicon Knights game is well worth your time and money. It's the feel-good article of the Summer!

When you take forever to get your game out, of course it's gonna suck.
Just look at DNF.

Legend of zelda, OOT
MGS 4
Killzone 2
ff13
versus 13

I assume you think all those games suck too, since they were marred by delays?

callahan093777d ago

None of those games were announced nearly as far before their release as Too Human. Just saying. 10 years since a first announcement is a pretty long time.

ukilnme3777d ago

@ callahan09

Don't know why I'm defending this game. Sure it was announced 10 years ago but how long has it been in development for the 360? I bet it's not 10 years.

callahan093777d ago

Who the hell cares. The point is, comparing this game to MGS4, or Ocarina of Time, or whatever else it's been compared to as far as development time goes just doesn't make any sense to me. Even if it had the exact same amount of development time, it still makes no sense. There's no point in the comparison. Development time makes no difference at all. I've played games that took 8 years to make, and they sucked. I've played games that took 8 months to make, and loved it. Whatever. I haven't played Too Human yet, but I liked Blood Omen, I liked Eternal Darkness, and so I'll try out Too Human and see if it stands up to their past work.

muddygamesite3777d ago

None of those games you listed have gone through a 10-11 year dev period.

AngryXbot3777d ago

Because it sucks!

Period.

The problem is the game, not the fans as Denis tried to blame, not because people are unwilling to adapt to new gaming, the problem is the game. Period.

KBDuB3777d ago

And, what is the problem with the game..?

KeiulZen3777d ago

The bad animation, the whole clunky feel of the interface, controls, and graphics. I was once excited about Too Human til I played the demo...after that it just left a bad taste in my mouth.

The game just has too many issues that should've been worked out before they even released a demo... I'm disappointed in it, I just hope Dyack and SK learn from it and improve the 2nd game if they're allowed to do so.

Fishy Fingers3777d ago

Obviously The Exploding Barrel lack any photoshop skills. That images looks like it was made in MS paint.

Fortunately the article is a little better.

dachiefsman3777d ago

Rock Bottom3777d ago

I don't get this "give it a bit of patience and you'll find out how good it is", most average games would turn out great if given "patience", I fell in love with FFVI(FFIII on the SNES) five minute after playing it, and it was my first RPG, the same goes with Command and Conquer, ICO and Monkey Island, if it's a good you wouldn't need patience to enjoy it.

On the other hand, I managed to enjoy some really crappy games just because I had nothing else to play and forced my self to play them, ex: Batman Vengeance, DMC 2, MK Armageddon, Sonic Heroes...

At worst, one would need to play a full level to have a clear view of how the game going to be, not a perfect one, but enough to know if it's a good, bad or excellent game.

Rock Bottom3777d ago

How can that news get deleted and the one with Greek Mag not, even though the score wasn't visible in the pictures?

Also Game informer always give high scores(crappy Lair got 7, I think), 6.75 is a surprise(but not for every one).

Some great games require a bit of patience, don't kid yourself. Morrowind, KOTOR, Witcher or any game of this style would be great examples.

Bubble Buddy3777d ago

I'll rent it first, and see if it's a good enough game for a buy.

Sorry man... I used painter lol. I still think it's funny, even if it's ghetto.

Lumbo3777d ago

Erm, how does anyone know how good i think TooHuman is?
And how can someone tell me its better then i think it is without knowing that?

I'll make my own decision after its released on the PC

ukilnme3777d ago

Since there is no convincing you otherwise, how about you just stay out of the 360 news until it is released on the PC. I am sure those that are looking forward to this game would appreciate it. I would too.

Lumbo3777d ago

lol, comming from someone who just posted negative remarks in the PS3 section thats kinda ironic ...

Hmm, double checked my post, tripple checked, still nothing in it thats remotely negative about TooHuman, not even a hint that i do not look forward to it, depending if it releases on a system i own, aka PC. So your usual rampart Fanboy defense post seems to be wasted .. again

morganfell3777d ago

Lumbo, bubbles for the truth.

ukilnme3777d ago

Just checked my PS3 post. I don't see what is so negative about it. Many will agree, I only spoke the truth there as I did here. Can I get a bubble for that morganfell?

kevnb3777d ago

Silicon Knights just doesn't make pc games.

kingnick3777d ago

Silicon Knights aren't exactly fans of the PC, look at all the issues they had just trying to get Too Human out for a console.
