If there are two things we're really tired of seeing lumped together, its Norse mythology and cyberpunk science fiction. Seriously, how many more times do we have to see this intellectual marriage? Well, at least one, as Too Human hits the shelves. Three if the trilogy is ever completed. Too Human is the 2008 offering from Silicon Knights, the developer behind Eternal Darkness and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. It twins Norse mythology with cyberpunk in an epic tale of discovery. Players take on the role of Baldur, one of the Aesir, who has taken it upon himself to protect and aid humanity in an ongoing war against the machines.

So it is that you embark on an action RPG quest to fight the bad stuff and rescue humanity. Silicon Knights has come up with an innovative new control scheme that uses the right analogue stick for controlling your character's direction and, rather than using the left one for camera control, uses it for deploying weapons, much as you would expect for the likes of Geometry Wars. Too Human is bound to tickle the fancy of loot collectors - there's tons of the stuff, scattered everywhere you look. Similarly, there are oodles of customisation options to get your guy looking and playing just the way you want. Also on offer is online two-player co-op. Even Gods get lonely, you know. It just goes to show that sometimes they're all Too Human.

I reckon everybody's got one game that was universally panned but they actually liked. Im not ashamed to say I loved this. It got destroyed by reviews. And silicon knights really didn't help themselves. But I loved the gameplay loop of this, thought it looked beautiful. Played well online co op. And invested loads of hours looting. Sold it to blockbusters back in the day to fund something else but ended up buying it again. Always felt it a shame there was never the sequel they were building up to. Glad it's finally backwards compat.

Hopefully marvel v capcom will be nex.

A bit pointless as the game was as long as a little finger


I assume the game duration changes dependant on hand, in which case?

...And if i remember rightly the ending was a cliff hanger setting up a sequel that never was.
Looks like all those rumours of a new Banjo game coming was the X enhanced version after all - I'll take that

Omg yeah just like the sequel to Eternal Darkness
Thanks for listing the all the titles Buzz - I'm so pleased that the two games I really wanted (Enslaved and Azura's Wrath) just sneaked onto the One at the last gasp. I bought Azura ages ago in the hope it would be made BC - and my gamble paid off!

Amen to the almighty Buzz
IIRC Silicon Knights lost a case with Epic and were ordered to destroy all copies of the game and it was pulled from the marketplace, how come it’s now being distributed again?
Shows as unavailable for me.

Yeah that was my impression too

Loved this and so sad how it all turned out in the end. Such promise of what could of been and the idea of old and new mythology mixed was fresh too.
A game I've always had .....what if next to in my mind.

Sure the first is on game pass as well.

Blur never made it. This makes me sad
Amazing, 6 games of my type will be made available. Hot!!
Major heat, flip its been nearly a month they done any bwc games, I'm glad I went ahead and got 3 games from cex on this list, so all happy
Splinter Cell
Hot great game
Honestly one of the best games on 360 era imo. Well worth a go, controls are different so might take a bit to get used to. Shame we'll probably never see a sequeal

That’s what I thought and for that reason I never opened my sealed box. Glad it’s becoming free so I can actually play it, although i can’t recall it ever setting the gaming world alight(confused)
