Too Human review video (Xbox 360)

Too Human for Xbox 360As the Cybernetic God Baldur, in Silicon Knights’ Xbox 360-exclusive action-adventure Too Human you get thrust into the midst of an ongoing battle that threatens the existence of mankind. An ancient machine presence has forced the God’s hand. In the first of a three part trilogy, Baldur is charged with defending mankind from an onslaught of monstrous war machines bent on eradication of human life.

It takes more than brawn and raw strength to supplant the machine hordes. Utilize a sophisticated blend of seamless melee and firearms combat to vanquish foes close and far. Feel each punishing blow through advanced visual effects. Intuitive combat provides new level of accessibility: Perform Baldur’s elaborate and complex combat maneuvers through the press of a button and chain together rapid-fire combos with ease. Through the combat system, Too Human provides gameplay that is easy to learn and rewarding to master and introduces combinations of weapons combat on a high level. The story chronicles the ongoing struggle between Cybernetic gods, machine giants and mortal men on a massive scale never before seen.

Amidst impossible expectations, it’s deemed a decent experience. Find out more in this Too Human video review.

To quote the video review: “For everything Too Human does well, it feels as if there is something holding it back. The character customization options and great class and skill system are the kind of foundation games should be built on. But then it’s all made rather moot by the fact that dying doesn’t matter and all of the enemies scale to you. The sense of accomplishment just isn’t there. If you’re the kind of gamer that loves outfitting a character and scouring the land for that one epic loot drop, Too Human will excite you and then some. For the rest of us, it’s a decent game that will entertain you until the next big release comes along.”
