That was one of the best mario flash i have seen. Great music, Great emotion involved, and it had some action in it. The ending was also Beautifull =) my vote...5
Awsome conclusion to Mario's adventures
A suprisingly emotional flash flick. The ending was brilliant, seeing Mario finally defeat Bowser, and return to the real world. A nice touch was showing the mushroom dudes admiring Mario's plunger, a token from a man who battled it out for more than a decade.
That was bad ass i had no idea Mario (c) 1998 would be In the REAL world Nice
This was awful
I don't know what is worse: stick figure animations or Mario-sprite animations.
Sprites have gone a long way. They were the way they were because they could not have been any better. Sprites were revolutionary when that was all there was; now we have photoshop, Flash, and 3DSMax.
Why not do what we can do and do it good? Why waste our time recreating sprites?
Aside from the oldschool, which sucks nowadays, the animation was shit. It hasn't any actual "style" because style is very hard to define and contemporary themes can not be easily "stylish".
Mario was a magical character, living in a magical kingdom filled with mushrooms that help one to grow; prinesses in peril; threatening tutlres; and a fight for good v.s. evil.
This version brings out machine guns (and while you stick to sprites, where are the cannons that fire giant bullets?), crappy heavy metal music, and a "shaky camera" technique that many contemporary artists think is actually a good thing.
I am beyond disappointed; I am respectfully upset.
I didnt think it was that great im giving it a definit 5
