Summary: If " Dead Space 2 " is a herald of things to come this year, I can’t wait for the rest of 2011. It might not be the scariest game ever, or the best third person shooter, but it melds all of its strengths seamlessly, combining them with an engaging story played out against fantastic locales.

25 January 2011
Conclusion: Concept: Isaac Clark is infected, and his sanity is slowly trickling away. His mental state becomes the backbone of Dead Space 2’s plot and action. Can Isaac save mankind from the spreading necromorph virus, or is he a new threat?
Graphics: An astounding level of detail accompanies every object.
Excerpt: Platform: Developer: Silicon Knights Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios Release Date: 08.19.2008 See all screenshots See all movies See all packaging See all art Complete Game Info Discuss on Message Board With just under a month left before its official release, Silicon Knights'...
Conclusion: Myabe I’m just being a wuss about the enemies and the bosses. No, I still think they do some cheap stuff. Maybe I would have had a better time if I played with a different class. But I should have a good time playing any class, shouldn’t I?
Excerpt: Too Human came out in 2008, roughly ten years after it was originally announced for the first PlayStation. Of course, the game wasn’t in development that whole time, and the final result is very different …
Excerpt: The story of Too Human is based off of the ancient Norse mythologies of Odin, Thor, Loki, Freya and the rest of the Pantheon of Gods. Silicon Knights have taken some creative liberty with this and put their own spin on the myths.
Conclusion: Concept: An action/RPG that tosses tons of loot at players, but little in terms of solid gameplay
Graphics: The effects are vibrant, and the character models look fantastic. The environments are drab, however, and the animation is stiff in both combat and cutscenes
Sound: Outside of hearing yourself...
Excerpt: In Too Human you play as Baldur; the main character in a game world which combines futuristic technology with Norse legends. Humanity is under threat, hunted to near extinction by a race of machines, and has been forced to flee to the city of Asgard.
Conclusion: This game is also yet another that is suffering under the weight of its own hype. Between the waiting and the many claims by Dyack as to how good this game is, people are going to have set the bar high.
