I was really impressed at how fast paced this cartoon was. I have not seen the original. I'm not interested, as this seems awesome enough in its own right! The animation is wonderful. Maybe I should see the first one to understand it more. The music was very impressive as well.
It has a great mood set up. You get a great perspective of the action. It just keeps on going. I didn't realize you had to choose yourself for the action. It really does hold up.
