Old Norse legends meet high-tech hack-and-slashery. A flawed gem.
That's the negative out of the way, now on to the positive. I found this, warts and all, to be simply one of the most more-ish games I've played in recent months, with unexpectedly addictive combat. Control issues notwithstanding I just kept coming back for seconds and thirds. The array of classes added some welcome variety; going through the game as, say, a Berserker and then trying it again as a Commando forces you to change the way you've been playing the game, creating a new combat experience. Different classes also bring with them a whole host of different skills and high-tech killing tools to get physical with. The other thing I'll mention is that as I played I got a sense of a whole world and history behind the game, as if what was taking place on the screen was just one more battle in a conflict that had been raging since forever. I got a similar feeling the first time I played Halo and Gears of War. It was also interesting to note how closely the game follows the Norse legends from which it takes its inspiration.
To summarise, I would say give Too Human a chance. At this point it's probably not high on your list of gaming priorities but if you see it very cheap or you're looking for something new to rent or you're at a friend's house and notice it in their pile – give it a shot. You may end up as pleasantly surprised as I was.
