I got this game yesterday and have pretty much played it all day and night.
To be honest, this game is like marmite. Your gonna either love it or hate it.
I really enjoy the game and its story. But I have given it four stars, mainly because the developers manage to explain everything in the most difficult way.
First things first, I suggest you read the first two pages in the game manual. It will give you a little hint to the story and a few other bits and pieces that will help you enjoy Too Human. Then check out the characters, as its handy to know the names, and will help you follow the story alot better, because if you dont know much about Viking Mythology then some of the names will leave you thinking 'Who the hell are they on about' then your going to be in the dark wondering what the hell is going on.
So read about the characters, as this will help you understand who everyone is talking about in-game.
Secondly, do NOT skip the game intro sequences, where it shows the game developer logo's etc, as the intro scene is at the end of it.
Once you have done both, your now ready sit down with Baldur and knock the crap out of everything.
The story is a bit like a Tarentino film. You get alot of flashbacks from certain events which entwine with the quests that your doing at the current moment.
Its pretty easy to kill everything on the game, you just hold the right analogue stick in the direction you want to attack and let baldur do the rest. You can push forward both sticks and do some special moves etc you also get ranged combat with rifles, dual pistols etc.
So it mixes the combat up well. I played a Defender, and found most of my time bludgeoning the goblin robots with ease, but at times I'd just sit back and let my rifle fire off some rounds and a few grenades.
The combat can be a little 'samey' but somehow it still manages to keep me excited and just watching my character bludgeon everything around me in cool ways with just the ease of pushing my analogue stick forward is amazing. There are of course more combo's and things you can throw into combat, perhaps shooting a grenade into a bunch of goblins whilst running toward them, then sliding into the leftover goblins and putting a cap of smackdown on them.
The graphics are good, but generally are bit jittery in places. The framerate is absolutely fine, I've had no problems with multiple enemies and allies on the same screen smacking each other silly.
The headquarters area is amazing. They've really made the Norse Sci Fi theme a winner in my eyes. The way they've taken old ways ad then just put the futuristic touch. Massive tall statues, huge tall narrow hallways with torches at either side... and the colours are amazing too.
The game is very much loot-based. You'll find yourself crafting some uber armour, with the possibility to buy colours to change the colour of your armour also which is a nice touch.
The sound is amazing when in combat, it really pumps you up for the fights and gets the good ol adrenaline running around.
The voice acting is decent and up to standard but the environment music can be a little.. non existent at times.
Last but not least, the camera angle. No you cannot control the camera, Yes you can change how close up / how far away you want to view your character from.
This has been the issue for most people, yet I find it hasnt really bothered me too much. Alas I'd love control of the camera, but I've been doing absolutely fine without it and its managed to be pretty stable with me. I only encountered a few issues in the Aesire Headquarters.
All in all a great game. Try the demo out, and for all those who have bought the game, I'll see you in Valhalla.
