Well I knew this day would come. It's time for a new chapter of Sonic the sprite Flash Series, with Age of the Brotherhood.
It's all out war mobian vs Machine.
Sonics back with a new voice. Better than ever, The Brotherhood of Metallix are winning and unless he does something to turn the tide the future is looking bleak with no light at the end of this long, blood ridden road.

Please excuse the long loading times this is gonna be a big one lol

I promised you an established Voice actor who has worked on Sonic fan fiction flash before and I hope I didn't disapoint.
Please welcome Omahdon, the voice of Nazo from Nazo Unleashed.

Tails: VoiceGirl
Amy: Rina Chan
Eggman: Viremaster

Rated 2 / 5 stars

It lacked certain needed effects.

I don't usually watch Sprite animations, but when I do, I can be a bit picky. The first thing I noticed was when Sonic touches the ground from jumping, it's silent, even when he jumped the first time out of the plane. Little things like that affect my opinion. Overall, it was a decent flash. However the script seemed to cheesy to be serious. Sonic's voice is just..ugh when it comes to that. The whole Shut Up thing with him made me sort of cringe but, hey, everyone has there own Voice Acting ability. 4 is what I rate it.

People find this review helpful!
Milanous responds:

see this i can respect. Not so much him above.

Sonic isn't supposed to be all sad and brooding

i thought some os the dialogue was laughable for how serious is was trying to be and if cody was not a hegehog then what was he? and i thought g.u.n. was only human mambers.
sonic should be a fun universe where some douchbag named robotnic is trying so rull all...well at least there was no chris thorndike

You know, I find that I'm usually one with the main demographic on NG. If something has a good score, I like it. Your score would say that this is on a level of Super Mario Z.

It's not. It's really not. I'm disappointed. Your sprite work is lazy. Sonics fighting just looks lazy and there isn't enough sound effect to emphasize his attacks. At the beginning it was silent for a few hits. It's like you just forgot to put them in. When he ran towards the base, his feet weren't moving correctly either. Overall, I can't say I'm impressed.

The voice acting is what really got to me. Now look, I know there are no professional voice actors on NG. Fine, I understand. Lower standards accordingly. But take a look at some sprite animations. Power Star had some damn good voice acting. Submitted to NG, got a fantastic score. Dr. Eggman and Sonic sound really forced. Sonic sounds awkwardly gung-ho. Dr. Eggman sounds like he's trying too hard. Viremaster did their voices, right? I didn't pay much attention to the credits. Bro, step it up.

Rina, I didn't get to your part. I could not finish watching this. I know your work is pretty good. I didn't get to your point, but I hope you sounded better than Vire. I claim ignorance, cannot fairly critique you.

Also, Prime is playing the same crap that Shadow did. "I'm the supreme being". Same with Mecha-Sonic in Super Mario Bros Z. Please, come up with a decent storyline. All I got out of this is "Errrr world dying derp Eggman winning derp herp hedgehogs extinct EXCEPT SONIC herp FREEDOM FIGHTERSSSSS".

I'm comparing you a lot to SMBZ because it's pretty obvious that's what you're trying to be. Sorry, but I can't say I like your work.

Oh boy. Let's get to reviewing.

So I'm greeted with a horribly off pitch "Seegaaa." You should be ashamed.

The next voice I hear has a blowing into the mic as I talk problem, but the voice was good. However, he had no lip syncing. Why? Lazy? Probably.

Next is the intro. Read rather well, but it all sounds the same. It has no variety in delivery. now, i understand this is a bit nit-picky, but if you were any good at directing the talent you have in your flash cartoon you would push them to make it not sound like they're reading. And sound more like telling a story. It would've made the intro not feel like it's dragging on and on.

Rina-Chan gave a performance I'd expect from her. She did the parts with emotion, but in my observations, she wasn't really into character. Though, it doesn't feel like anyone is actually into character in this animation except for the following:

Milanous, though I could barely understand him, thank you for the subtitles. Your Cody voice was nice, and you get kudos from me for that.

Sonicking, though your issue is that you don't handle emotion well. Pain comes out lacking, anger falls short, you just need a little more practice. I think you can be a great voice actor with more time and experience.

However, there are many poor voice actors in this animation. I think they pulled away from scenes. I would seriously consider re-casting them if I was you.

Viremaster, you made the noob mistake of getting too caught up in the voice instead of the character. Most of your lines come out flat, and they all sound the same. You need to work on understanding the character over the voice. It will enhance your voice acting greatly.

VoiceGirl, you have a serious problem with emotion. I barely heard any emotion, and any that you actually showed was lacking for the scene. You need to work on your delivery. A lot. You have a long way to go before you can consider yourself an actor. However, i am delighted to say your reading skills are top-notch. So I see a future for you if you work on your delivery and feeling lines. Keep working at it!

Akito Shikyoken, You are horrible. No amount of construction could ever build you into a voice actor anyone could tolerate. Your voice quality is horrible. you can't act at all. And you will probably NEVER make it in voice acting if you keep down this road.

Now for me to critique the animation and the animator:
There is a lot of room for improvement. I don't animate, myself. But I do know good animation when I see it. Sprite animation is difficult to animate well since you don't draw your own sprites. However, it's no excuse. Sprites are not hard to draw and/or customize.

As with most sprite animations, your fighting moves are heavily repetitive. You should either A: find more sprites. Or B: Draw a few of your own so you can do something unique! When you reuse animations and moves it looks rushed and lowers the over-all quality that it feels to the viewer.

I think you should experiment with wider angles. every fight is right in your face, and it gets old quickly. Be dynamic! It makes things more interesting! I think you have a lot of room to evolve as an animator. I hope that you do so, because that will be fun to watch!

3/10. It was over-all boring, repetitive, and the storyline didn't quite make up for any of it. You have plenty of room to improve. I hope you do so.
