Developer: Silicon Knights
Release Date: August 19, 2008
If Halo is powered by hype, Too Human has been fueled by controversy. From famed Canadian developer Silicon Knights, Too Human has been in development purgatory since its original announcement for the PlayStation in 1999.
After an abysmal showing at E3 2006, Too Human has been clawing away from its Scarlet Letter label in Microsoft's first-party lineup. Finally given a release date for August 2008, Too Human mixes a Diablo style point-and-click battle system with the cybernetic twist of Norse mythology. Controlled almost entirely by using both thumbsticks of the Xbox 360 controller, Too Human is a game that will truly be successful based on a solid demo presented to an already skeptical audience.
