Too Human: Kicking the crap out of robots

7:49 PM on 10.15.2007 // Jim Sterling

Too Human has the right idea -- smash all the robots to bits and pieces before the dreaded Robolution can begin! Mr. Destructoid excluded, robots are shifty and dangerous and will enslave humanity inside infernal robot bakeries before long. Thank Christ for Silicon Knights and its bid to get them first!

Seriously though, Too Human is looking distinctly average no matter what way you slice it. This trailer has definitely improved its standing, but I'm just not feeling the epic quality that I perhaps mistakenly believed Dyack's Baby Girl was meant to have. Much of this game puts me in mind of the Crimson Sea series, and if you ever played one of those games, you'll agree that such a mind is not one that a game wants to put you in.

That said, the video is visually terrific at the very least. That big robot is particularly pleasant to look at, and there's a graphical feast going on throughout. Hopefully the gameplay will match the aesthetics when it comes to the crunch, but right now I am seeing nothing that makes me want Too Human over some of the other action games on the way.
