Images of Too Human

Recently, canadian developer Silicon Knights has put online a new batch of screens for Too Human in preparation exclusively for the Xbox 360. Even after all the bad mouthing, and I know some people almost blacklisted Denis Dyack, the quality is there.
Update: added one trailer
Update 2: And a second one, rather good looking too!

Thats why a majority of these screenshots are from a vantage point looking up... I'm guessing to get around the fact, that there are no shadows... Nice framerate... Shadows should be a given though... c'mon.

after reading the press conference script, sounds like the game is well on its way towards the hit it was suppose to be:)

I have the two HD trailers, but one of them is broken for no reason :/ I'll post them as soon as I can.

edit ; one is uploading, while the other...I dunno where to find a non broken version

Do you even recall Silicon Knights vs. Epic or were you under a rock?

I believe Dennis clearly stated a while back that they are no longer using the UE3 engine, and created their own.

Meanwhile, the graphics look fine in still shots, but it's the animations that need to impress.

This is because it isn't UE3. Silicon Knights didn't like the engine/support theey got from epic, so they build their own engine (kind of a UE3 rip-off engine) and EPIC and SN are now in a law suit:)

I saw some gameplay footages from GDC at IGN, so gonna buy this.

My bad. Too bad the game looks alot worse than the earlier UE3 version. Hopefully the gameplay and story will be great.

Yes!

this looks AMAZING

Looks fabulous! Looks like they mimicked D2 pretty well, which is a good thing as it is still the best hack & slash ever made. Can't wait to play this in coop with me mates.

Getting interested in this now. Based on the joystiq conference feed I'd say that dumping UE3 was a good idea too.
Commented on 2008-02-20 10:51:45
Did any of you shadow moaners watch the damn video? There ARE shadows.
Commented on 2008-02-20 11:08:10
Wait, they dumped the UE3? This just keeps getting better and better! I wish more developers had the nerve to create their own game engine.

interesting you should say that. Silicon Knights is responsible for the LoD expansion should my memory serves me correctly. Eitherway, im excited for this title.

Graphics looks godd. The camera does look like has been improved... but oh my. The combat looks like a bore. Why does it look like it's taking place under water? The combat surely lacks dynamics, speed and impact. I mean, Silicon Knights even have a few homages to Devil May Cry in the combat deparment, but it just looks silly here because it moves so slow.

I'm certainly not yet conviced this will be a fun game to play.

EDIT: I've watched the same trailer on gametrailers.com and for some reason it runs complety different there. Maybe my machine was screwing up the vid. Seems like the action is much improved indeed. Nice stuff! I take back my comments about the combat.

What a world we live in where people complain about shadows.

This is meant to be a game to satisfy those Diablo cravings. If you're expecting something in the DMC or Ninja Gaiden mould you are very sorely mistaken... this is much more a loot/levelling/slasher RPG with added depth and has never been advertised as anything else.

The guys made Eternal Darkness, so it should have a great storyline too.

GOD would they PLEASE sort out the animation in this game.

Didn't Silicon Knights drop the UE3 and created their own engine?
Commented on 2008-02-20 13:30:24
whatever engine they're using.. it look crisp and much more focused... like mass efffect on steroids.
