UPDATE 2013 - This series has been cancelled/is being rebooted. I will be starting the series again from Episode 1 without sprites and with a slightly different storyline.
And it's finally done, my first submission for 2010 :O! I'd like to thank Tom for giving me an upload extension and all my voice actors for talking/yelling into their computers for me
Is it just me or did the beginning part remind anyone else of the pirates in Rayman 2?
That aside, I thought it was really good.
It was funny, entertaining, well animated and the storyline is awesome!
Good work! :P
I've never played Rayman D:. Glad you liked it though!
Charming but cliche sprite movie
Oi, where do I begin... firstly as an animator you have bucketfulls of potential, I don't know why you would limit yourself to SMBZ style flashes.
But I came to review the movie, not to waist my time expressing my concern about your choice of animation expression so let's just get on with it
STORY/CHARACTERS- subpar, cliche, nothing I haven't seen before
I know this may be for leisure measures but let's be honest, looking beyond even the cardboard clone characters, your story could be interesting if you tried.
Try giving the supporting characters more depth because right now they just seem like cheap comic relief. I can't speak for the main character yet because I haven't watched your 1st installment so I won't mention him
(although I found him to be very annoying throughout the flash)
Second, branch out of the Sonic & Mario mindset that SMBZ has done so well to drill into our heads for the past 4 years.
Think, I know you can come up with better stories than this.
ANIMATION-Too SMBZish, awkward at some points, fight scenes lacked punch
Firstly if you're going to use sprites at least do a good job on concealing the edits.
Some of the sprites just looked like a mess of unreasonably thick MSpaint gradients, the shoes on the chao characters as an example
A lot of the 3D perspectives were just really fail, usually ending up looking like a bunch of irregular cropped bitmaps, the characters thrown in only making it look even MORE disproportionate
The fights, as I stated before, lacked bass
Yes there were lots of DBZ movie clips and wav sounds but it lacked any real camera/magnatude dynamics and I could tell there was just lots of image/movieclip tweening
It was subpar, you might want to work on it
HUMOR cursing- and maybe a few recycled SMBZ jokes
Don't get me wrong this could have a lot of potential but it's just not there yet
I appreciate the constructive review, but what do you mean by "SMBZ fight scenes" and DBZ sound effects and graphics? Especially considering this flash contains none of those things.
I hear you on the cliche' characters thing though (and the 3D part at the end I will admit didn't look as good as I'd hoped...). I'm still developing the characters, so next time I will make them less generic.
the small thing sounds like cartman
Unintentionally, but yes they do .__.
Pretty nice. Okay story, not-so orginal characters
Voice acting is okay, plot is mostly original (except for every-other key word,) but the characters seem almost copy/paste. I mean really, the headstrong main character (that will probably reveal a hidden power before this is over,) the hesitant supporting character, and the girl that bitches about absolutely everything. At first i was offset by your use of chaos as main characters, but I had a chao fetish myself when i was like 13, so i know how addictive they can be.
Fights were okay i guess, doesn't look like a lot to me, but thats because im used to the type of sprite-fights in SMBZ. I'll just appreciate what you have created so far, since the more epic fights must take an assload of work.
One more thing, do you plan on using Devil/Angel/Chaos chao in this series at some point? (the immortal kind that you can make in SA2B) If no, then why not?
All S-rated Chaos chao dominates. Time well-wasted...
I too noticed that the characters were getting a little cliche' as I was writing it. I'm still experimenting at the moment, but I do want to change them a little for future episodes.
Well there wasn't really a fight scene, it was more of a chase scene with a tiny bit of fighting in it. There will be a proper "fight scene" in episode 3 though.
As for the Chaos Chao... that's currently secret D:.
Huge improvement man.
Much better than the first. The only advice I can kinda give you is the title. When people see that MariovsSonic in the title, it causes some assholes on NG to just rate it low without even watching the video.
GL with creating the 3rd, I like how it's progressing.
That's what I was thinking too. It sucks aswell because I don't really want to change the name :(.
But thanks for the review! :D
