On the 29th of August comes Too Human, the epic new game from Silicon Knights and Microsoft. In this game the player plays as the Norse God Baldur through an action-packed war between man and machine.
The game includes hundreds of thousands of weapons and armor which are found after defeating enemies. Practically all the items in the game are found this way (similar to the Diablo series). Also available is the chance for players to play as one of five different classes, each with its own unique abilities and skills. Furthermore, the player can choose to stay more or less human, or become more machine with the aid of cybernetic enhancements.
Too Human features many other Norse Gods such as Thor, Odin, Loki, etc. Every aspect of the character that you play as is totally customizable, from there look, to the items they wield. As you defeat more difficult and larger enemies, your character level increases, opening up opportunities to face harder enemies and allowing the player to find better quality, and more powerful equipment.
There are many different enemies, ranging from the small, common and quite easy to defeat, to the major antagonists which are very hard to defeat. A few of these enemies have had information about them released, such as the Goblins which are the backbone of the mechanical army and are very common. Others include the Dark Elves, Trolls and Spider Robots. Some of the names of these are related to Norse mythology even though they are mechanical beings.
This game has stunning graphics and amazing gameplay; this along with the freedom and customization of the game allows hours upon hours of play. This game is only available on the Xbox 360 and is set to be one of the best games released this year.
