Reviews for "Sandbags Ultimate Dest."

OMG WOW!

Well, as most may say...the DBZ/Video Game Crossover is overused but who the hell cares when you can pull something off as good as this!
Seriously, if you match these artists against some of the ones in the original BuS it is obvious that this collab has a lot more fresh talent!
Liljoey50 & NejiRulez, you two were probably the best thing that happened to this collab! Some of the parts were a bit..errr..but overall this collab deserves a better score AND an award!
Liljoey50, Nejirulez and all the others in this collab....i hope to see more of you guy's work soon, i'll be looking forward to it :)

Joeylicious responds:

Wow...THANKS!

Hm... Decent Job

Nice work guys I haven't gotten around to checking the actual flash yet but I have to say that we suceeded,... somewhat...
However, feedback wasn't so great... esh!

(Ponders alternative animating styles)
Let's try harder in the sequel
(THUMBS UP)

Joeylicious responds:

Ugh, I know..
And now the zerobombing...

I give you a perfect 10!

I really liked it
I loved how the character hit that Sandbag hard and heavy
I've always liked combo-fighting style spriting
But try to keep away from the DBZ style cause theres too much of that nowadays
Wow whats with al the long comments

If u want to improve, some of u should get better beam animations and hit sparks cause there wasnt a lot of those :P

Hope to see more of your guy's work
:)

Joeylicious responds:

Thank you!

What are you guys talking about?

I don't understand you guys
These guys have been working really hard on this collab as I have seen on NG collabs
Just because every single part didn't have a style doesnt mean u guyz should just burn them
Honestly you shouldn't critcize them just because you have seen something like this before. Just becuase there a lot of sprites out there who are animating, that doesnt mean a good sprite movie has to be at the level of Alvin Earthworm or have complete originality

As they have said in the Author's comments "THIS COLLAB IS NOT IN ANY WAY AFFILIATED WITH QCSTORM'S 2006 COLLAB TITLED "BEAT UP SANDBAG" BASICALLY ITS THE SAME CONCEPT, BUT DIFFERENT CHARACTERS & 7 NEW ANIMATORS"
Which means that it was created as a sort of tribute to Beat Up Sandbag which, in fact, had top notch animators like Alvin Earthworm participating.

Now dont get me wrong I'm not one of those guyz who worships Alvin but I am just saying tha not all sprite animators should be expected to be at his level

PS
Love the Earthworm Jim reference BTW that gave me a good laugh

Joeylicious responds:

Thankyou!

Lack of Originality

I have to say that this is just another sprite movie...

Things like these are overrated by now and don't really hold as much gravity as they did in the past.

Honestly no one showed any uniqueness and none of the parts really stood out well except for Meta-knight, Kid Buu and possibly Yoshi

Please understand the fact that it wasn't the animation that was the problem, in fact I would say it was pretty decent, but you have to realize that no one wants predictable fighting styles incorporated in sprite flashes because there are just too many of those on newgrounds and youtube.
If you want to succeed in the future you have to surpass the typical Dragon Ball Z Spriting techniques that are used WAY too much and come up with something on your own

I honestly think that I am being generous with giving you five stars but I usually only give 3 and under to spam and failed parodies

Joeylicious responds:

Amen.
