OXM looks at the five most disappointing demos on Xbox Live, ranking them in order and explaining why they were such a letdown...

The story is too old to be commented.

Doesn't sound like OXM are to impressed by Denis Dyack's antics.

Elven63736d ago

Thats funny OXM US like it and OXM Uk hate it.

I wasn't going to get too human until I played the demo. I actually like the game. Kinda of puzzled as to why it's getting such negative feedback. I thinks it's kinda unprofessional for game reviewers to slam a game because they don't like the developer. If this is the case with too human.

I guess in some ways it can be called fair. Lair was unfairly slamed by game reviewers also.

drewdrakes3735d ago

I agree, Too Human is pretty good, its not the greatest game, but its still good.

This Too Human hate by the media is getting out of hand.If the Too human demo was not released, i can bet you that this article would never had been made.It's like some gaming journalists are just out to make sure this game flops, due to their new found hatred of Denis Dyack.

If you read the comment section, some people even confirm that the Arthur of the article RYAN KING does not like Denis Dyack.

Too human last week was the 7th most played game on xbox live.Demo's hardly make the list, and that should give a good indication that people are playing it multiple times.

This game is not perfect, but above all else it is a lot of fun.And if that is not the reason for gaming, then i don't know what is.

I do find his critics of the Too human demo pretty stupid, i mean how can he criticize the story and call it pretentious when all he's judging it by is a demo, also the controls and camera i find perfectly fine after the second play through, it's a new, well some would say innovative change of controls and it takes time to take used to. I think this is undeserving hate to the demo.

But isn't the story just a futuristic version of Ragnarok.

And if it is then Baldur will die before the end, then be resurrected.
And I'm really looking forward to seeing Lokis children.

dan-boy3736d ago

this and the rainbow six vegas demo are without doubt best demos i've played! i cant fathom why everyone has lined up to take a pop? after the negative previews i was apprehensive, but after the demo, i'm like wtf?? the game rocks! all the people who i've spoken to on my friend list love it also!

OXM uk are beyond sh!t anyway! when they reviewed rocky on the original xbox, they talked about the on-line portion, saying they had encountered no lag and descrbed the functions, but when it was released it was an off-line only game!!!!!!!! how bad is that??

anyway, f*^K the haters, first day purchase for me! i cant wait to play it!

They hit the nail on the head with Hour of Victory. God that game is the most God awful peace of CRAP game that I HAVE EVER PLAYED.

Now on the other hand Too Human is not a bad game at all. Yes it takes some getting use to the controls but its not all that bad. Its still a day one buy for me. Its been a long time since I have had the chance to play a Dungeon Crawler like Baldurs Gate DA or Champions Of Norrath.

@dan-Boy I Agree with you 100% Bro Too human has been getting way to much hate. Peeps need to give it a play first befor just blindly bashing the game. Just my two senses.

Nevers3736d ago

I'm buying Too Human. I didn't go in with rose-colored glasses but what I found was a pleaseant surprise. Took like 2min for me to get the hang of the "stick-combat" control scheme and then I really enjoyed it. The camera worked pretty well too. It seemed smart enough on it's own that I really wasn't as bothered by it as it seems a lot of people. I can understand why they took it down to 2 player co-op as, IMHO, 4 player co-op woulda taken all challenge out. 4 Baldurs would simply wreak too much havoc and the AI wouldn't have a chance.

n to the b3736d ago

and that's not even a true count of how many are playing the demo. some people are playing offline due to the unlockables...

witchking3736d ago

Yes, the hate for Too Human is getting out of hand. I actually liked the demo, and my kids both have played through it numerous times and are slobbering drool all over the place waiting for the full retail version.

This whole Dyack thing is stupid. Who cares what he says? Will any of that have any impact on whether you enjoy the game? No.

Same as all those nuts saying Assassin's Creed would be great because Jade Raymond is hot.

Megatron083736d ago

I have to agree with green on this one. From what I read of most ot the people that played the demo they have liked it. There are some that played it for like 2 mins and hated it but come on anyone plays a game for like 2-15 cant even have a real opinion on the game. Especailly Too human the control are not awful like this guy says they are by any means they just take longer to get use to cause I dont think any game has ever used a control set up like this before. You cant say it has a bad story from the demo either as the demo really tells you very lil about the story.

Bazookajoe_833735d ago

I have to laugh a little about youre comment "If the Too human demo was not released, i can bet you that this article would never had been made" when the article is about the worst demos on live. I get youre point, but it was kinda funny..

The game is filled with glitches that will get you killed, 3 minute loading times for messages that will literally take 2 seconds to read and followed by another 3 minute load time, bad camera angels, terrible new characters (cough*silver*cough) and the game never really lives up to it's name.

You have a to be a real Sonic fanboy to have what it takes to beat that game.

Truplaya3736d ago

the battlefield demo was good, i think you could even play with mates who had the full game. Turning Point was the worst by far

bumnut3736d ago

hour of victory is worse than turning point.

kevanio093736d ago

i agree...i want the 15 minutes of my life wasted on hour of victory back...

CyberSentinel3736d ago

I hope this game sells well, so Denis can give the finger to all you haters.

krakdol3736d ago

Even as a crappy game, it should sell well since there's not really anything else coming out on Xbox...

lawman11083735d ago (Edited 3735d ago )

I did not think it was bad at all and when it drops from 60 bucks to 40 something I will pick it up . Turning Point by far was the worst pile of garbage to come out.
