Summary: Repetitive, grinding for items, short story, and terrible controls. The game is fun for those who like grinders because that's what someone is going to have to do if they want to advance far into the campaign due to the uncontrollable camera and the melee being attached to the right analog stick.
Didn't pay much for it so I'm not disappointed money wise but the game=bad.

Summary: Personally, I bought this game (Too Human, 2008) because I heard from many sources that it was very underrated. I tried the game and to some point, I agree with it being underrated BUT I also found that it had many flaws. Though I somewhat enjoyed my experience with this game, it didn't have any factors that could bring me back to play it. It's continuously repetitive and sets you up for major "rage quits.
Pros: 1. interesting and engaging storyline 2. great game concept 3. many class- and combat customizations 4. good characterizations 5. unique combat controls
Cons: 1. you need to adjust the camera angle yourself all the time 2. unskippable 30-sec cutscene each time you die (you die a lot) 3. useless AI teammates 4. your armory weakens after each death (you die a lot) 5. unique combat controls
Summary: If I were to rate a game purely on the potential of what it could have been, then Too Human would be an easy candidate for a 10/10. Unfortunately, this game doesn't live up to it's potential in any way, shape, or form. I'll start with the game's only semi-bright spot, the menus (isn't that sad?). In Too Human you can customize your weapons, and armor to your heart's content.
Summary: You remember all those fun viking Gods like Thor and Oden. They were all crazy and had huge personalities. Well, someone took all those waring Gods and decided to make them look like corporate drones. But the meat of the game, and by meat I mean a few chunks of hamburger floating in water, is the dungeon crawling levels, all four of them. Yes there are for levels in this game yes this is a 6-8 hour game.
Summary: Too Human is a very polarizing game those that hate it hate it, those that like it like it theres very few people who fall in between. If youre looking for a GET IT! or DONT GET IT! opinion here, Id advise you decide for yourself by downloading and playing the demo if its still available. The demo is the first level and the rest of the game is simply more of the same. Personally, I think Too Human is awful. It is a western kusoge.
Summary: In 1999, a game company named Silicon Knights was to suppose to release a game named Too Human... It turns out that the game was in delay for many years because of partnership problems. Finally, in the year 2008, the year that gaming would change forever finally released Too Human. The Results: A Complete Mess!!!!!!!!! I will keep this review short, this game fails in the most important ways!!!
Summary: Cyberpunk meets norse mythology... what could go wrong? A lot, unfortunately. The vast majority of the game is painfully mediocre. The combat mechanics are passable, but only after you *finally* get used to them, which takes a while. The camera usually points in a helpful direction, but whenever it's acting up, you have pretty much no recourse. I got the impression that there was a big, grand plot going on, but damned if I could tell you much at all about it.
