X360A: Too Human Review 7.8/10

X360A writes:

"Too Human in some respects is a deep and meaningful game. There were times when I was sat down reviewing it where the hours seemed to disappear from under me. I've always said that alone is the sign of a great game, but I've also said that when a game causes you to shout at the screen and launch the controller at the neighbour's cat because of its controls, it is doing something seriously wrong. A non-user controlled camera in this day and age of gaming is tantamount to making a car without air conditioning and this is frankly unforgivable. It should be a criminal offence and probably is in some countries.

It's a shame as well, because if you can get past that, Too Human is a deep and enjoyable game. Granted, it's a bit repetitive, but the skill tree and the general RPG side of the game is sophisticated and worthy of anyone's time. Too Human has laid the foundation for the next title and is not a bad start to a new IP, but it's got some distance to go become it can be labelled as a console shifting exclusive."

So the really is a public for this game.

Unless its a conspiracy , looks like this game caters to a niche market.

Otherwise I dont see any explanation as to why the scores are so unconsistant.

5 overhere then 7 or 8 overthere then a 6 then another 7 or 8...

WTF are you talking about inconsistent? Games ALWAYS get a few different score, but as you can see from the meta most people rated it in the low 7's. That same tired excuse makes you sound like you're in major denial instead you should just deal with it man. You should have known it was going to be not so great just from watching the trailers just like most people knew Haze was going to be garbage before it came out.

when he says, "inconsistent," that's exactly what he means. There is no major denial, it's actually very clear acceptance of this inconsistency. Games do always get a few different scores, but rarely so durastic in their differences.

Some scores are really low and seem to reflect ill-will towards Denis Dyack, which is warranted.

It's unfortunate that his game suffers as a result of his petulant pompous ass.

Lastly, the game is far from garbage. I'd argue that Haze isn't complete garbage, either. Play Timeshift? Pretty derivative but it had fun multiplayer. Same kind of thing here. It doesn't do a whole lot, but if it appeals to you, by all means play the damn game and stop debating about its review scores on the internets.

There is in no way drastic differences here from any other game. Haze got scores from anywhere to 3's to 8's, but the average was around 6 so this is no different, and if you look at most games you'll see the same thing. Hell even games like MGS4, which got an average of 10's to high 9's got some 6's. That's what meta scores are for.
