I actually thought the game was pretty good; awesome story and not half bad fighting. (It gets repetative fast, but that happens in some games.) It took me two characters before I learned how to actually use the charms.

The death scene got very old very fast though, the first time it was cool to see, the second time it was a bit of a pain, and after that I started falling asleep everytime. (Sadly, I chose berserker and they will die very often because they have no health to speak of.)

Shooting has its flaws and combat can be a bit sluggish when your wielding heavy weapons, but build your character to fight fast as his combo meter goes up and give him faster weapons and you can start mowing down hordes with lesser return damage. (Learning about that was very helpful for my berserker, but not so much for my guardian whose hammer kills three at a time..)


The levels are very long, and that makes up for the lack of them, but I really didn't like that; even if it is part of a trilogy.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Right, finally pushed myself to finish Too Human today, and I can say beyond any doubt this the worst game I've played on the 360. By the end I had a list of about twenty things that should not have made it out of the development studio. A few samples:

-That stupid cutscene that you can't skip when you die (and you will die a lot!).

-The camera that refuses to look where you want it to.

-The weapon lock that won't lock on to the enemy you want it to.

-The levels are so big and similar you get bored before you're even half way through one.

-The repetitive strain injury I got in my thumb from the continous button bashing.

-An overly complicated weapons and character upgrade system.

-Graphics that wouldn't have overly impressed you if you played it on a PS2 or xbox, never mind a next gen console.

Normally I'd give a few positives, but there are so many negatives it's not worth the effort. Pure crap.
