Credit where it's due...

This seems like it took a lot of work. Modeling like that and animating this whole thing definitely had to be rough. Kudos on accomplishing this in that regard, I'm sure a lot of work went into it. However, looking at it objectively, based not on production but instead focusing on the end product (as all media is generally reviewed) this seems overhyped to me.

First of all, while this would look dandy on a video site, the grainy resolution of the exported video looks pretty crappy when stacked up against the clear and vibrant colors of an animation that's purely flash. This also affects the animation in the sense that it feels slow a lot of the time, like they're kids making a fight movie so they're pulling their punches shortly before impact.

Also disappointing is the fact that with so many well known NG characters with so much potential the final battle focuses on gigantor and mindchamber. While I respect their artists and realize they've accomplished things in their own right, the characters themselves are lame choices for an epic final battle.

The "plot" is also pretty weak. Everyone is caged and forced to fight... Because. All so that Pico can rule the portal or something. First of all, this seems amazingly out of character for Pico, but ignoring that, who is considered to be ruling the portal in this flash? Pico's already as close as you can get to supreme master of the portal, unless you count Strawberry Clock, but there'd be no need to obliterate everyone just to take out SBC. And if you did, there'd be no one left to rule. Pico wouldn't be ruling the portal so much as emptying it so that he could live alone for all eternity, which again makes no sense.

Overall, this is very impressive for what it is, but it's kind of like starting a farm, home growing crops so that you can create noodles, slaughtering your own cow so you can get meat, harvesting so that you can make your own spices, and putting a so-so meal on the table when your kid asks for hamburger helper. Just cause you chose the hardest method doesn't make the gritty noodles and stringy meat taste any better.

I CANT MAKE IT TO THE SECRET MEDALS!!!!!!!!!!!!! but good game


Rated 3 / 5 stars


It's good to see that newgrounds is moving in a 3-dimensional animation scheme. The software you used is dated back to playstation and n64 graphics but I like that someone is trying something different. As far as the voicing, you could have gotton some new voice recordings instead of using already made ones because the ones you used didn't mix in at all with the environment.

Pretty but boring

The 3D animation was nice and all that, even if it did look a bit choppy and compressed when converted to flash, but... it just wasn't really that interesting a movie. I know the plot wasn't exactly the point, but it's about as well developed as the plot of Sonic Riders. "Hey guys what if... the heroes from all these flash series FOUGHT TO THE DEATH!?" There isn't really a story to speak of here, just meaningless, boring violence with well-known characters (which I guess is the point of Pico day, oh well.). Oh, and the voice acting is a bit lacklustre to boot.

This movie just goes to show, that even with hard work, ten months and the best tools in the business, you can still turn up drivel if you don't have a good idea.

visually-amazing..everything else, not so much....

visuals-The 3d modeling of all the characters are quite nice, i really like how they came out. Like i said, visually-its amazing. This is the best i've seen yet on NG for cg and 3D animation so far.
story(or lack thereof)-But to me it looks like you thought- HEY LETS MAKE AN AWESOME 3D MOVIE WITH NG CHARACTERS, but DO NOTHING ELSE.
I was really hoping you'd go into some story instead of this stupid free for all crap. it's so pointless. you put them all in random places and you jump back and forth between the action. this hampers the quality of your movie considerably, and i got bored quite easily.
STORY+CHARACTER PURPOSE=EMOTION. Senseless FIGHTING(in this movie)=BORING AND NO EMOTION. You should know from any video game or movie that characters without purpose or insight, are easily disposable and hardly cared for by the audience as a result.
Sound/voices/music- The sound fx were okay, but hardly there if I strained my ears to hear it. This and the fact Tthe voice acting was hard to hear over the drowned out "mediocre" battle music. i don't know how they recorded the voices or if it was a matter of hardcore compression, but it sounded like it was recorded underwater. pretty shoddy, unfortunately. This among other things took me out of the movie quite frequently, causing me to groan or roll my eyes.
Music sounded like a smash brothers ripoff. I could tell its high points and low points, but overall it was underwhelming and did not contribute to the action in the movie.
Interactivity-it would have been more worthwhile and enjoyable if the audience had interactivity in the movie(apart from the sparse easter eggs) It would have been great if the viewer could choose who would be the winner and then go from there. But it left alot to be desired. (Not to mention, it was ambiguous who was defeated and who was the victor in the free for all portion...)
Last note- This is certainly the right step in direction for 3D animation but it's a shame since i can tell you put ALOOOTT of work into making it look great visually.
