I found it very ironic and funny that EA games
the one that yahtzee always criticizes has this HUGE MASSIVE FIVE MINUTE trailer at the end of his video, and a little blurb before it as well.
Also the escapist is skinned up for eve...
(or either some really big adds)
just a little too perfect in the irony department for me

Ssssh!! EA will hear you and pull their ads away! We want Escapist getting lots of muniez so they will keep amusing us so!

Right in the spirit of the old ones, God that was awesome!

Too Human....good thing I totally avoid this game like the plague.

Another awesome video my dear mr croshaw!

And yet he cried about how hard it was. That's my point. The review makes him sound like he's terrible at games. It's not the greatest game ever by any means. I was just pointing out at how clueless he was when playing it.

No, he ranted about how the death system sucks. And just because the combat CAN be broken and made easy if you know how doesn't make the game hard if you don't. and, you're still a fanboy. And, "yahtzee's bad at games" not a valid arguement. And saying someone "cried" as a synonym for whining or saying someone's whining when they're not should be punishable by death.

You said "it stinks of the auteur". I think you meant to say "it is bad". Alfred Hitchcock was really good. He was also an auteur. Then there are other auteurs who were bad. Being an auteur isn't in and of itself bad.

Yea, we all know yahtzee loves some of the auteur. He said "the stink" as in, the bad part.

To say that Yahtzee is bad at games is a very valid argument against this review. If you'r gonna spend most of the review complaining about the difficulty means that you should atleast be decent at the game.

If theres one thing in yahtzee's review that anyone who has played the game cannot disagree with, its the death sequences. Dear Lord, they never end!!

lol look at the angry sheep.

I'm not even a Too Human fanboy, it's just funny when someone writes a review and doesn't even have a clue about how to play it. He said that theres a pause after every hit. That means he didn't even know to hold the stick down. Honestly, how stupid can you get?

Bandwagons are all the rage. Enjoy the ride.

It sucks that that game sucked. I wanted a good sci-fi based on norse mythology to bad. Good review tho.

It's not a review, it's a joke. Try the game.

I remember this site having a video about how games are getting too easy. Kind of funny that he cries at the slightest bit of difficulty. From his comments it's pretty clear he didn't even understand very basic control aspects. While entertaining, it's a pitiful review.

There's a reason many people in the industry are speaking out and defending this game. It's fun.

This game is by far the WORST thing I have played in a long time. And there is no point in throwing "not getting the combat" rubbish at me because I finished it out of sheer determination. There is nothing Innovative or new about that combat system infact I can tell you how easy it is to break it.

Right-Stick Forward X2--> (A) ---> Hold Right-Stick towards enemy---> Land and press Right-Button.

And this will kill any group of enemies (bar the ranged Dark Elf enemy)So what innovative about it? You sound like Denis Dyack you are saying that he didn't get the basic controls but failed to say how. There is nothing to get, that's why.

And yet he cried about how hard it was. That's my point. The review makes him sound like he's terrible at games. It's not the greatest game ever by any means. I was just pointing out at how clueless he was when playing it.

And btw, it was the WORST thing ever and you still finished it? Interesting.

Yes I still finished it because I paid €69 for it and was dammed if I didn't make it work for that money. Although for a better compairison:

Its like when somebody tells you milk is sour and you smell it anyway. You know its going to be bad but you do it all the same.

And I'm far from a fanboi it seems if anybody is a fanboi its you for defending a completely flawed game by quoting the developer and saying that he didn't get the combat. Where are I played it I thought it was a phenomenaly bad game as did anybody else who played it at my place, so its not so much a bandwagon as the truth that fanbois don't like and just call everybody sheep as their last line of defence.]

Now I think there is still a dry patch on Denis Dyack's balls for you.

took that a little to far there and i liked too human the combat took some getting used to but its not that bad and the camera wasn't a problem and call me a fanboy and I'll make your life a living hell

Yes I'm petrified of somebody from the internet....

Yahtzee isn't bad at games though. He finished half life2, HL eppie 1, and HLeppie 2. I had an easier time playing ninja gaiden with my eyes closed......and a clamp around my nuts.....while down-beat folk music was playing (I hate down-beat folk music).........and there was piss all over my controller. Also, while I don't know what the scale is for skill in too human I found devil may cry4 to be a cakewalk, god of war2 to be pretty average in difficulty (when on god mode, titan mode is semi-impossible to me), and am in general good with that type of game but sometimes died 10 times in a too human battle.

i have to agree with the people that say he sucks at too human i died once in a blue moon it was too easy the only time i died was because i was fighting a boss and couldn't find health orbs and i think he hates anything that is an rpg. i love rpgs good story's mostly non-linear not counting too human, more enemy types too human made up for that with items

Did you break the combat system? And the only type of game you can say I suck at is puzzle and that game was difficult for me.

great review. I was laugh so hard. I will say you do hit problems with the game dead on. It still funny as hell how you put the review in a comicial spin. I not sure why you would make a bad review so damn funny but hell it make me coming back.

Foiled again because I don't believe in the afterlife, I trust science and all our evolved glory.

i don't believe in heaven but hell i do because that's where i'm going no ands ifs or buts and anyone who bugs me will end up there one way or another and besides what do we really know about the afterlife

the video was funny as hell , i just wonder why i like it ,i didnot at first but i liked getting stuff and thats the only game out like that right now on 360, but there again the video was awesome

Great review as always though i appreciated the no death penaltys because of the sheer amount of times you die in this game. Also is it just me or are their more and more yatzee rip offs now adays hell people are even trying to copy fullyramblomatic like this http://mcsnaps.webs.com/ he even claimed to be the American Yathzee.

i only died a few times and i think people who die a lot suck at too human

I registered specifically to say that Yahtzee, your reviews rule. I especially liked this one: I remember the developers desperately trying to hype it and to hear you give it the trashing it deserves makes my inner-misanthrope smile.

While I have heard some negative things about Too Human, I'm going to reserve my final judgment until I've actually played the game.

While i loathe to step into these wonderful little sub-climates of the escapist that are the comment-pits...

I thought this one was enough to warrant a visit so i could give this review a hearty thumbs-up. Whether Yahtzee ever reads it or not, it's important for people to be acknowledged for what they do... so here it is.

Now im out of here again, i don't know whether to laugh or cry at the majority of these posts...

The death threat was a new one though, a fresh breeze in the slumping valleys of the same rehashed posts over and over.

Thank God yahtzee finally found a bad game to review,

I was afraid he was going soft.

im sorry the hammer is made of WHAT XD
ah, i havent laughed like that in a while, thanks yahtzee, i look forward to the next one ^-^

The Patman:
Thank God yahtzee finally found a bad game to review,

maybe the summer holidays calmed him down a bit? but then this game jumped out XD

Yahtzee might be bad at games, but I don't see how that is relevent. Even people that are bad at games should still be able to enjoy them. He also plays a lot of games, and if the problem with the sword-swinging mechanic was that counter intuitive then it's a valid mark against the game.

It's been a boring summer.

HA! Yahtzee went Joker on us!

Can't wait for the sequel (sarcasm).

Another excellent review. I played the game at a friend's house (who sadly got sucked into the hype) and everything you said was true.

I just picked up this game two days ago, so I thought I'd watch Yahtzee's review again. Now it all makes sense, but I do disagree with him about the fun factor of the game. I realize not many people will read this, but I'll post anyways.

I think the problem with the reviews of this game is that the authors don't actually understand all the mechanics of it. I get where they are coming from, because it does take a long time to learn all the aspects of it, and reviewers don't have that much time. For a while there, I didn't know about the rune socketing, or that you could socket special runes with regular runes and then combine those with higher runes to make SUPERRUNES or something. It took me probably 15 hours of gameplay till I realized what all that was good for, since the game didn't bother telling me about it.

The game's combat does seem a bit mundane at first, and it is if all you do is the same melee attacks over and over. However, there are lots of advanced combat mechanics and strategies you need to employ in order to overcome the various groups of enemies without dying. Certain classes have different ways of dispatching with these groups, which makes the game more fun when playing co-op with a friend.

I find it interesting that so many people mock the death sequence. Sure it was increasingly annoying as I advanced through the game. I died 60+ times on my first play through as a Human Berzerker class. It was really hard and aggravating at some times, but it's weird because every time I saw that stupid farking angel come down, it made me much more cautious as I kept playing. I didn't want to die because the penalty of watching that useless iridescent angel come down from the sky one more time was bad enough. It made me play better and on my next play through I only died three times.

Sidenote: The angel is a bit annoying, but is it any worse than watching the 10 or 15 second countdown on Halo or any other FPS? It's merely a video sequence instead of a timer.

I think the game is fun, and on my newest character, I chose the Commando class which just mows down enemies with his rifle. It's pretty fun and makes the combat change quite a bit. You really have to change the way you play because the melee on that class is dreadfully weak, but that's just part the balancing. I did the first two acts with a friend last night on XBLive and it was great fun, so I encourage you to try that. Working together as two different classes makes this game really shine.

It seems to me the game is a cross between Chaos Legion and Death by Degrees.

Played it again yesterday, an update seemed to make the death sequence a bit faster, on her descent, but it could be my imagination.
