Too much Confusion over Too Human

With a million and one people wanting to get in on the video game industry with out making games, everyone is throwing their 2 cents worth in on games these days. But if you are like me and stick to a stable of the same reviewers, you can see a much clearer picture of some games.

Too Human seems to be one of these games where the reviews are all over the place, in fact I think that this game has the widest range of review scores I have seen this generation or last even.

Greek Gaming Magazines loved it and game it Editor Choice awards and a 93% while old time industry stables like Gamespot gave it a 5.5. Then there are the others who understand that this game was a vision and that a vision isn't always clear till the very end when its too close to turn back. G4TV gave it a 4/5 along with Gamepro. IGN gave it a very honorable 7.8 saying that it was close but just not there.

With all these opinions and internet fanboys running around trying to convince themselves that they are convincing others that this game is the shit or just shit, one has to go out of their way to think on their own. I know that with gaming being such a large community and liking a game that isn't exactly good means that you will be slandered with the title of poor taste in games One should venture into games that they are interested in no matter their reviews.

I have been looking forward to Too Human for a while. The game has a nice art style, and a creative spin on an old story that hasn't been heard in a while. While I do think that Silicon Knights was trying to go out of their way to reinvent the wheel. I think that they did a nice job of bringing an accessible console Diablo to market. The games controls have been a touchy issue for some, but others have grown to love it. Its the simple joy of being a bad ass with out even trying. In the end is that what being a god is all about?

Despite its flaws and range of reviews I am getting it and I know a lot of people who are. While I believe that gaming is an art form, I think its also important that not every game is graded as a piece of art. Too Human is one of these games. People are trying to hold a fresh presentation to that of industry standards. Too Human is best described as a game that walked its own path got lost but has good stories about getting lost.

I have had a lot of time with the demo and I am looking forward to getting the game tomorrow. I hope to see some of you on there.

Fuck reviews unless they are your own.
