lol back at watching sprite movies, not a bad one

The text is too slow, pause the movie whenever there's a text box and let us press space to continue.
There's also some perspective issues.

HE IS SHADOW AFTER TRANSFORMATION anyway cool movie keep up

Awesome but who is that red and black hedgehog at the end?

Mediocre at best.

It is an interesting story, to say the least. The dialogue was quite lackluster and didn't fit the demeaner of each character. I felt like I spent more time reading the boring and all-telling dialogue than anything else (I'd love to help with this). I suggest a user-control for that situation.

The animation was quite solid. It wasn't truly at it's best, for it seemed a bit choppy and unjustified, but it's much better than some of the others I have seen, and some sprites (initial explosions, etc) just didn't belong in the situation they were used in.

The menu sound is quite annoying, perhaps one that is softer on the ears should be used. There also wasn't TOO much sound in the flash. Overall, the sound needs some touching up.

As for camera work, it was overused. To be honest, I can't remember a single moment where the camera wasn't shaking or zooming or shifting, etc. It got quite annoying after a while and a bit bothersome on the eyes. Also, don't zoom in so much! It's very hard to admire the beauty of a good sprite when you can actually see individual sprite blocks!

Animation: 8/10
Sound: 5/10
Literary (Language, dialogue, and Story): 8/10
Camera use: 3/10

Overall: (With a bit of good graces) 7/10

I hope you have improved from here, in fact, I expect it. I'm thinking about skipping to the latest episode to see how you have improved. Advise against it, if you think it is best.

Exorz responds:

Don`t get me wrong if i say this. But come on? You watch this? This is a disgrace. Vote it a 0 if you would, I`d actually be happy if you would. Because that`s all that deserves. A big fat '0'. Even though you have to start somewhere right? Go watch my most recent videos. I hope there`s a difference.
