Considering the long LONG wait...

It wasn't all that disappointing, I'll give you that much.

Unlike 5.5 it was an actual improvement in almost every department. Longer runtime, fluid animation, detailed backgrounds, some extra variety, and... humor?! But the extent of that improvement wasn't worth those years Madness has been around, to try and pull it out of the grave again.

Despite all these minor improvements, the change came way too late for someone like me, won't be noticed by hardcore fans and haters always stay haters.

It's clear that except animation and violence there is nothing worth discussing about your flash. The word 'story' doesn't even go in the same sentence as 'Madness' and the excuses for character models are there just to be kicked around, shot at and teared apart.

As for animation and violence themselves... They've simply gotten old, I guess. These shorts are supposed to be exciting, but I caught myself spacing out and finding myself staring at a room full of bodies with no idea of how they went out. And who cares anyway?

I still remember the "good old days" of Madness and the epic feeling I got from watching those flicks. As silly as it may sound nowadays, it was even unique in a way. Now, I get no such feeling from watching your flash. There's a limit of how many goons you can take seeing point their guns at the hero for half a minute, waiting in the queue for their deaths.

Speaking of goons...

I read mindless 10 reviews referencing 'animation', 'variety', 'originality', 'violence', 'humor' and even 'awesome FBF' (seriously?) but I can't see any of those things in the flash itself.

Any madness lookalike by a decent animator easily tops anything the original author makes, in terms of 'originality', 'variety', 'violence', 'animation' and 'humor' (take a look at Madness day), but no one seems to care all that much. Why? Because the concept of Madness is far from new and lives on solely from the hype its fans generate, who couldn't tell FBF from shitty tweens even if there was floating text flashing next to them, so they stick with the only *name* they know.

I mean, your head rotation is still choppy. Why? You use stock mcs, so why won't you even *shape tween* them properly and then just use all over again? Those are just 2 lines and an ellipse. You've made your attempt with 'real' FBF, but I wonder if it was your first and last one, and you just decided to move with this cash cow that screams for milkin'?

Sure, it takes a lot of time and effort to animate, and I acknowledge the success you managed to pull off without doing any of that. I am no obstacle between you and your glory. But you, sir, have not developed any noteworthy Flash skills in 10 years of 'animating' and I leave myself the right to rate your latest 'work' accordingly.

There's some debate, but overall people find this review helpful

Actually, I was quite bored. Such a long video of these two killing crappy badguys, I was holding on for some kind of boss of monster... I was dissapointed... :(
