Edmonton Sun/Canoe previews Too Human and reports the "demo demonstrates that new game needs a little more work."
"not quite human" Would actually be a complement seeing as the point of the game is that you are 'Too Human' and must become less human to beat your enemies.
Lol who in the hell disagreed with me?
As said I'm sure with it's vastness it may be not as polished as it will be in the near future for next years release but I have a great feeling this game will kick major ass.
Those magic 10's are on the way to clean this all up! edit: I read the article and the funny thing is I wasn't being sarcastic wake up N4G, and metacritic is a joke jcgamer, all those scores from 90's down to 40's.. wake up if u think viva is any better than HS. GOW and GeOW have 100's to 50's? a joke right?
Instead of worrying about 360 reviews why don't you take it up with Sony and demand a good game for once! Sony hasn't delivered on anything so quit hating and wish you had it this good sucker! Too human is shaping up good and will be a day 1 purchase for me! I bet it will hit a million and even sells more than just about any PS3 game in 2008!
Just what would you know about the PS3 or the 360? No Gamertag = some zombie that loves to repeat what they have read some place. Seriously what did this article even have to do with the PS3 that suddenly you have turn that route? You sound like a politician and a poor one at that.
I think Too Human will turn out to be a great game and a must buy but your tact of going OT to avert disaster is just idiocy personified.
Beans, you just pulled that out of your ass you fanboy. Saying that MGS4, one of the most anticipated games next year, will sell less than Too Human, a game hounded by bad press, poor showings, and an imminent lawsuit with Epic, is one of the biggest fanboy statements that I have ever heard. I'm not saying that the game won't be good in the end. I'm just saying that you are representative of what the problem is here at N4g. You and Eagle 21.
jackdoe, he is also ignoring the fact that of the 3 games most talked about at E3, 2 were PS3 exclusives and 1 was multiplatform. CoD4 may be highly anticipated, but Killzone2 was the talk of the town at E3 and this was just 2 months before the rrelease of HALO 3.
I hate to say it, but you obviously didn't read the article...they think it shows promise...and they said to judge the game this early would be a mistake...you probably have never even played a 360 game in your life...why do you care? And that 'magic tens' statement...Viva Pinata is rated a 84 on metacritic...Heavenly Sword a 79...Blue Dragon is rated a 78...Folklore, a 75...and Shadowrun is rated a 66...Lair, a 54...Microsoft doesn't automatically get high scores, don't sound so naive...they EARNED their 10's...and Sony will have to as well...
@ Hatchetforce and jcgamer:
hatchetforce: Ever think that maybe he just doesn't want to list his gamertags? I don't have mine listed. Doesn't mean I don't own a PS3 and 360... Point is some of us, for whatever reason, might not want to list them on this site, any other site, or put them out there in public.
jcgamer: And each one of those games, other than Viva, are actually better than their MetaCritic Score shows. Blue Dragon is easily better than a 78. Heavenly Sword, better than a 79. Lair, despite some bad controls @ times, much better than a 54. Folklore is also better than it's score, and I can't comment on Shadowrun cause I haven't and probably never will play it...
anyway just a point I want to make. Scores are trivial. Very seldomly does a game actually get the review and scores it deserves, and on occasion games get more credit and a higher score than they deserve.
As for Too Human. I'm sure it will credit. But personally I care very little about it. Never been interesting, and I've never been big on KoTOR. While a good game it's just not a game I enjoyed and Too Human will probably be the same way. Might be a game I check out [time permitting] but I think at the end of the day, even if it gets high scores, Too Human is going to be nothing more than a "Good" game...
Seraphim, I understand what you are saying but Gamertags are a way to prevent the general jerks that love to make claims the way they do over at Gamerankings. People at that site need only register in order to damn a game. It has ruined what began as a great idea and invalidated the entire rating system except the section that utilizes reviews from print and web based publications. Besides Game Informer those are generally worthless.
People want to run their mouth, they are welcome to it but it will have all the weight of a mouthful of cotton candy unless they can back up their claim. Too many people want to say I played this or I own that and have no ability to back it up. Or else I own this system and it just died on me out of the box. Any claim in the world is possible and they can damage a reputation when they don't own the system. If people have the item and game it then they have nothing about which to worry.
Maybe you haven't heard, the internet is known to be full of liars and I personally like a method (Tag listing) that can in some small way mitigate the BS people love to spew. Nobody, I mean nobody rides for free.
Isn't that the point of the game is trying not be Too Human ! Not only that on 1up yours Shane Bentonhousin asked the team if they settled the dispute with Epic and they replyed we are not going into full detail of the situation. He also asked if there using the Unreal engine and they said we went back to ground zero and made a new engine for the game. Its all in the latest 1up yours, go ahead and check it out.
Edit: If I wrote something thats not correct then someone reply if I was miss informed.
this game looks a little .. last-gen!
your such a tool
idontcare lol you are dumb in no way does this game look last gen lol name me one game last gen that looks and has the scope of this game lol fanboys.
"He was being nice. I'm sure other reviews will reflect his comments." - power of green
Someone tell Canoe to stop doing hands-on impressions of these games. Too Human "not quite human"..."Haze demo a mess"...see the pattern? I wonder what the next lame headlines will be. "Mass Effect not mass enough, Unreal Tournament not real yet, Call of Duty 4 needs heavy duty work".
Two Worlds / Lair and now this..?
Jackdoe read between the lines sheep and you will see that he never said it would sell more than MGS4 because unlike you sony fanboys we don't predict the future! To the guy below you Hatchetforce don't let E3 fool you because Ms has yet to reveal all of it's goodies unlike sony! We already know that the games announced for 2008 up to now for 360 are looking solid so don't be surprised when they start to make some announcments after the holdays! You say were the problem because you don't like being wrong but the problem started from a stupid sonyfanboy comment that had nothing to do with the topic! It's funny how all of the Sony fanboys try to stick together and think it's ok to say whatever but when someone corrects them or goes against them they have a pissy fit!
Well, Beans did predict the future. He said it would sell more than just about any PS3 game, a blanket statement that covers MGS4. So you should learn to read. And not just you 360 fanboys, but the PS3 fanboys are the problems. So wtf man? A ps3 fanboy made a dumbass statement and I criticized him for it. A 360 fanboy made a dumbass statement as well, and I criticized him for it. What's the problem with that?
There are not going to be any other major announcements except about titles coming in 2009. MS shot their wad with HALO. Sony has had games in development for a while and it will start to show now. This comeback on their part is to be expected.
The 360 doesn't have the stable of exclusives coming down the pipe at the moment that the PS3 has. Sony is just getting ready to start to reveal their first big exclusives. MS had their day and now it is Sony's turn. You can say MS will make some magical statement if you want, throw some fairy dust and wish upon a star, but with major games coming in the next few months for the PS3 if MS had any thing to throw on the fire they would have already.
TOO HUMAN WIL BE GOTY 2008 u cant play 2 hours of an epi game that not finished and say crap liek that +)_ the game is 100hrs plus
I seriously hope Silicon Knights delays the game and works more to make it a true AAA. If it sells enough, perhaps they could get the budget to make the next-gen Eternal Darkness.
He said there were still some camera issues but that the game was fun. His review starts in part 2 of the podcast after what you are playing.
I never really knew what to think of this game.
This is the THIRD time this too human project was even started. First off, it was suppossed to be on ps2. For some reason they stopped development for the ps2. Then it went to gamecube. Out of the blue they stopped development on that too.
So now we have the potential third coming of the game on the 360. But they began to blame Epic by saying the unreal engine was "faulty" and caused them delays. Personally, I think they just wanted to make Epic a scapegoat but that's beside the point.
Now don't get me wrong, when I saw the game it did look decent enough (judging by videos) But overall when they showed to gameplay videos I thought it looked like a slower, futuristic version of ninja gaiden, which personally I don't think works out well.
I do expect the game to sell atleast somewhat well. Because in all honesty, it's hard to mess up a hack 'n slash style action game. But I have serious doubts on the AAA factor
It was originally supposed to be on PS1
It's an Xbox 360 title, what do you expect later on anyway, when the reviews come out. Seriously, Viva Piñata > Heavenly Sword? Halo > Jericho? lol
For more accurate scores, go to www.gamestats.com. That site counts both the press AND the actual gamers alike to give a relatively centered score. Halo 3 doesn't reach the top of the charts because it was evidently overhyped. Hell, look at the metacritic comments on Halo 3. That'll tell you everything.
They aren't too happy about how halo turned out for the most part
jeep patting ur head so it doesnt get to big that it xplodes ps3fan no shhoo go back into ur cave no 1 is listing to u only ur sony friends
If you can't spell out YOUR (ITS ONLY TWO FREAKING MORE LETTERS FOR GODS SAKE!) then you have no right to attack or criticize anyone.
And translated into a language you understand:
if u cant spell ur then u shuld shutup.
more like an alien
Just a lil more work and this game is game is going to be a HUGE HIT! Can't wait for this beauty. 2008 is looking damn good for the 360 :)
By the way, did anyone catch at peak of last week's 1up show? Shane practically PRAISED Too Human as a definite AAA title, having nearly as much graphical prowess as Mass Effect and Heavenly Sword (an exaggeration, in my opinion).
So, don't write this game off just yet! Especially not on the basis of ONE gaming site. Who remembers when Destructoid criticized ME for being boring? And what did Game Informer rate it in the end?
Like the article stated, patience is divine.
My reaction, without playing it, is that I don't want to go out of my way to buy it. Too Human is probably technically impressive, but I'm skeptical about the fixed cameras and the theme. Too Human is on my radar, but I expect it to let us down. I hope I'm wrong.
agree w/ you, man. To be honest, I am also concerned about Silicon's decision to incorporate fixed cameras, analog-stick combat, etc.
In the end, however, depending on reviews, I might just have to forgo my suspicion and try something NEW.
But yeah, I'm kind of suspicious- because the videos I've seen so far look somewhat awkward.
anyone else keep getting Two Worlds and Too Human mixed up :)
For some damned reason I keep thinking of "oblivion clone gone horribly wrong" when I hear Too Human.
It is a DEMO and not the final product.
in relations to the criticism.
this game will be fine, long ways from being done.
