Too Human has received mixed responses from US players, with it being a title that you'll either love or hate. Silicon Knight's action/role playing game is now available for Europeans. Will it garner a similar reaction in this territory?
European's are not going to be happy about this...
lol, that made me laugh have a bubble! On a serious note however, judging on the demo this game was a huge disapointment, it was this and Gears which were going to get me to turn on my 360, but now i will barely play it til November now
2 words: i agree
Sorry but I don't want this crap polluting my continent.
I don't want you polluting my continent!
Thats ok. I was never planning on going to the continent of Retardia anyway.
I am so glad I bought it despite the reviews ... it's the best exclusive 2008 for the 360 so far. no joke! I LOVE IT!
too human is now available for Europeans to mock that's a plus for them i guess anyways WOAH seriously o_O DAMN is all that came to mind i don't mean that as an insult but DAMN
i enjoyed the demo so i will pick it up, but i just bought a new video card for my pc so it won't be this month!
ryu hayabusa is gonna kill u while u sleep. ninja gaiden 2 walks all over too human lol
@ kazuma Couldn't agree more but I still hope Too Human does well. @ DARK WITNESS That would have been nice but according to Dennis Dyack we just don't get it.
see, now what would have been interesting, and i have been thinking about this for a while is what too human would be like if the combat etc was like NG. i think it really would have been awesome. anyway.. thats just me dreaming....
I still feel NG2 was a beter exclusive title this year - peerless combat mechanics despite some other disapointments. Not that this is awful - its just not ultra-brilliant for the majority of us!
that's a real slap in the face of itagaki.
well ok. for me NG is nothing special - was full of it since sigma on the PS3 and to compare a bloodfest hack and slay with toohuman is not my idea...
!!!! The BoTs know deep down that this game Absolutely Sucks !! But will Still buy it cause they aint got nothing else and they are Collectively the Dumbest Idiots walking in a Knuckle dragging fashion on the Earth
"they are Collectively the Dumbest Idiots walking in a Knuckle dragging fashion on the Earth" ...oh the irony *ahem* http://www.youtube.com/watc... Both sides have their fair share of idiots...including yourself. _____________________________ __________________ @LarVanian- Agreed... The concept was good but Silicon Knights just ruined it. Graphics were bad and while the story was good, the gameplay sucked too.
for the 1st time i can honestly say i kinda feel sorry 4 the devs of Toohuman, they spent like 10 years of there lives making this game just 4 it 2 get slammed upon release, if it was in production 4 a couple of years rather than 10 i wouldn't hav any feelings either way, its not anybody's intention 2 make a bad game and perhaps (as always) if there wasn't as much hype 4 this game it may of done a bit better
i kind of agree, but in the end its their fault. they had play testers, there must have been someone to say hey look.. this looks like crap ! or the camera is broken and needs fixing. at which point i am sure Mr Dyack would have stormed in " you don't get it do you ! your fired ! "
unless you think reviews actually matter.
well some of them anyway, European is such a vague category of people.
i can't believe you got disagrees! europe is made up of lots of different countries/cultures
but nobody likes me
but like u said "this looks/plays like crap" and in the manner of Sir Alan Sugar "YOUR FIRED" if i was a play-tester i would b ever so honest - and thats probably y im not a play-tester coz ill end up gettin my arse fired lol
exactly... give you an example, my bro is a play tester and he is currently testing a game that all the ps3 owners have been getting quite happy about. now he heard the devs talking about said game and wanted to change something which he felt was not needed, but he didn't want to say anything less it fall on def ears. The thing with too human is that right from E3 first showing a lot was said about the cam etc, you would think they would have picked up on it. @kevnb Reviews matter and don't matter kind of. The thing is that there will always be people who like a game no matter what, and people who don't like a game no matter. The thing with too human is that its not just the few who are saying its bad, its the majority. its not just the reviewers, its gamers as well. and it is the more technical issues that people are saying have issues. let me put it this way. MGS 4 is a great game. Most people love it, some people like it but find fault, and some people just don't like it at all, its not their sort of game. One thing everyone agrees on is the production value of the game is of the highest standard, graphics etc. weather you get the story or like the story is another matter, but you can't deny its one of the best looking games so far. i am a 360 fan and even i will say its a game everyone should play. now, with too human... some may like the story some may not, but in the same light, the production value is just not that great. The graphics are average, things like the animation are almost substandard for a next gen game. now i am still going to get the game because i am interested in the story, but i won't pretend that all the other things don't matter because this is what i am interested in. think about how great it would have been if it had the story and the graphics, music, animation etc to match. Thats what Mr D.D does not seem to understand. A lot of people who dislike or are hatting on the game are doing so, not because of the story or because of the mix in gameplay, but simply because the graphics are average and other aspects of the game are not what you would expect from a " next gen title ". people will say graphics are not everything, no they are not, but they are part of what makes the whole. if the game is fun, but the graphics are crap then it should be stated, not brushed under the rug. NG2 had a great combat system, but the camera was bad. it was a fun game with a bad camera. some people didn't mind, but that didn't fix the camera. The reviews have said what they have said based on what they have played. sure, people should try it for themselves, but even if they like it, does not change the fact it could have been better and some of the technical issues should just be overlooked. they need pointing out so the next game does not suffer the same problems. although, it prob will anyway as SK don't seem to be listening to anything anyone is saying about the game " we like the game, thats all that matters ". anyway, i am just talking crap myself. like i said. i will still get the game cos i like a game with a good story. not going to excuse its failings and pretend they don't have any impact on my enjoyment of the game. i may enjoy the game, but i could have enjoyed it more had the camera been fleshed out. it may impress me, but it could have impressed me a lot more had the graphics and animation been pushed a lot harder. thats what makes a good game a great game, and a great game a true master piece !
don't jump on the anti-toohuman bandwagon if you are really interessted. the camera is a total non-issue - its really just a matter of getting used to. to say toohuman plays bad or it looks bad must be joke... I am one hell of a grafics whore - yes there are some really ugly spots but on the other hand toohuman has some of the most impressive grafical moments ever. this game is sooo deep, I bet most of the reviewers didn't get it at all and never seen half of the game. yes there are lots of flaws (not more than masseffect has) but nothing is a gamebreaker at all. its genius piece of software for ME - no matter what anybody is trying to tell me and I hope you guys don't miss it because some dumb reviews and give it a try or you could miss something really special. its worth a try - not a demo try - you need at least 3-4h to understand all its features. it should have been more polished - it's the start of a trilogy, it had lots and lots of develop time but it's still one hell of a game.
"The thing with too human is that its not just the few who are saying its bad, its the majority" Thats a lie! The only people saying bad things about Too Human are either A. reviwers who opinion in my book don't matter or B. people that have never even played the game. I'm 60 hours into my game and nobody has yet to say they hate anything about the title. The majority of people that purchased the game are loving it.
well , i beg to differ... most of the people i know who have either played the demo, or played the game think it is crap. most of the reviews think its crap... you say their opinion does not count and thats what i am pointing out, its not just them its the gamers. to me the gamers are just as divided on this. going by the posts i have read on this site, again some are loving it, some not... no worries, i have said i will get it, in a few hours i will let you know what i think of the full game. i have played the demo twice, it was the story that convinced me that i would get it and the fact that there is nothing else for me to play. its not about jumping on the hate wagon or anything, its what i think of the game based on what i have played with the demo and what i have heard from other people and read and as i said. just because a game is fun does not mean i will excuse its failings.. i didn't with mass effect, i didn't with bioshock etc.
It should do well in a few countries espically since the game uses Norse mythology.
Too Human plays on themes very near and dear to most European histories/mythos... I'm still having an absolute blast with the game; but, still looking for the "Godly Fullplate of the Whale" drop though...
our verdict.... not interested maybe in ten more years when the sequel comes out, we'll take a look
