Not My Flavor

I prefer drawn animation, the fighting was a tad too boring for me.

Okay, so I'm probably going to make myself incredibly unpopular with this review. Then again, maybe Newgrounds' users will acknowledge that not everyone has to have the same opinion, so long as they back it up well. Maybe...

First off, the presentation was exemplary. The CGI graphics were beautiful, making this one of the most visually appealing films on Newgrounds. Music was spot on too, as was the voice acting - from the character creators in many cases, no less! That gave the whole project a bit of a Smash Bros. feel. It's nothing less than I'd expect from 4 months' development, but the time has paid off.

But here's the thing. You had all of these wonderful and wildly differing characters at your disposal, and you didn't do much with them. Yes, we got to see them prancing around the maze to differing extents (Darnell was on screen for - what, three seconds?), but none of them really feel built upon. Possibly the exceptions are the Tankmen and Gooseman (and... the character who appears at the end - well, one end), and even then a few lines of dialogue weren't enough to bring these people to life.

Perhaps I shouldn't want characterisation from a film that states from the off that it's about fights to the death. In which case, I'll pick up on the fact that there was only one battle which was processed in any detail. The rest were one-shots. Yes, I know you had a plethora of characters and not enough time, but you could have left out a few and worked harder on the ones you had left.

And while we're talking about battles, it seems a little odd that the (brilliantly staged, I must acknowledge) final battle was between two of the less prolific characters, when having P-Bot square off against Nene, say, would have felt a lot more representative of Newgrounds. Maybe that's because you were working closely with JohnnyUtah and MindChamber, but... I dunno. The battle was flawless otherwise, a great example of character modelling and CGI, but the character choice made it feel somewhat lacking.

In the end, what I'm trying to say is that sometimes, less is more. The multitude of beloved faces and the exceptional atmosphere creation got in the way of any sort of development or satisfying action. Maybe if you'd stopped trying so hard to make it epic you'd have given us (well, me) something that still wowed while also having some depth behind it.

(No, I haven't mentioned the Easter eggs or the double ending. I think the fact that I can't be bothered to rewatch the film for them says enough.)

Lots of people find this review helpful!

I don't want to be the bad guy :)

But I cannot say this suites on a flash portal side anyway.

1. it is mainly just a video-file played in a flash player (better off in YouTubes)
2. the medal system and the menu (maybe the credits) are the only flash parts
3. loved to see the video in HD, not with so much artefacts (a link to a HD version would have been fine)
4. the 3D motions look a little bit "clumsy" to me
5. the music is not epic enough for the content

1. content sticks absolutely to NG (therefore the above corresponding minus are "little" ones for me)
2. absolutely nice lighting and model creation (technical good, improve it and it can become as good as professional work, there is no far way to go)
3. stunning piece of work in the overall view (thats y a 3/5 at least)

Therefor I can't give it such a high rating like others - at last there are my honorable opinions and I wanted to be true :)
