After being in development for quite some time now, Silicon Knight's Too Human is finished and released on Xbox 360. Here are the First 10 Minutes in video form, starting at the same place where the demo ended. The game was massively hyped and talked-about, and the backlash created after the reviews hit was a strange thing to see. All in all though, Too Human is to me still a decent action game with some flaws.
The combat surprised me, since it is much more simple than it looked - you aim towards an enemy with the right stick, and Baldur, the main character, move to him and does the rest. You can't change the camera position because of this control scheme, so you sometimes find yourselves in a position where you can't see the enemies, or even yourself. Using the guns becomes a problem with this too, since you can't freely aim with the right stick.
The melee combat feels pretty good after a while when you get used to it. Better weapons also makes it much more enjoyable, since you really get the feel that you do some damage with each thrust. The demo didn't show this very well since you don't have access to as good weapons.
Another strange thing is the fact that when you die, nothing happens - you just get teleported to the same place, with more health and some minor new damage to your weapons, and you can just continue to finish off the enemies. Who by the way have the same health as they had when you fought them the last time. Because of this, there's no need in having a character who can regenerate health.
I'm nowhere close to finishing the game, but even though it has its flaws, I still got some enjoyment out of it. The video below shows, as I mentioned above, the same level as the demo. For those that haven't played the demo, we have a video of it here, enjoy.
@Sdarts: i tjink ive been pretty consistent in saying the books are better than the games. I dont know why you even directed that at me :) (3 Hours ago)
The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (7 Hours ago)
And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (7 Hours ago)
@Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (7 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (7 Hours ago)
Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (7 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Cool.. what language did you read them in? (7 Hours ago)
