Juvenile, but competent and exciting at times.
To put it frankly, the dialogue and overuse of slapstick humour in this was PAINFUL.
However, it was semi-worth the wait just to see the amazing fight scenes. They were well paced and managed to be over the top without falling into the bland same-y-ness DBZ choreography does.
Recommended, if you skip *all* the cutscenes.
The script is....uh...interesting
I gave you a 4 for this purely for comedic value, which I'm pretty certain wasn't your intention in the spots I found most amusing.
This animation isn't worth wasting points on.
I have no respect for the "person" who created this, and think that this animation should be removed. There are people here who make animations (including violent ones) but also know the difference between red pixels on a screen and real-life malice. It is totally unfair to group serial murderers like Weise with other members here, which is what happens in the minds of the public upon seeing this file on Newgrounds.
Brilliant directing, action doesn't get stale.
I have found every Madness Combat animation that I've seen rather dull in it's redundancy and the fact that it just felt like an excuse to throw lots of red pixels at the screen didn't help. This was certainly as violent, but the far superior stunt coreography and fluidity of movement in this made the actual violence no longer the prime focus so much as the action itself was, as it should be. There was also more of a sense of purpose to this, and while there was little story to speak of the mission gave just enough objective and context to make one care about the outcome of the battles. Excellent work, I hope there is more to come.
I wish this were an intro to an actual game.
It's nice to see some anthro characters on Newgrounds in a non-sexual setting. Keep up the good work, make this into an actual game of equal quality and you will guarantee a line of perfect scores coming from me.
Was "Candian" in the response intentional?
Being from Canada, I have to say I am sick to death of Canadian things, but I'll set that aside for this review.
I can't say I found it all that funny, it got somewhat boring because of the gaps between lines of dialogue, though I can't tell if that was my machines fault. It was turned down on low however and ran smoothly even when I tried high.
The animation was film festival quality but I'm not sure the script was. It was ok, just rather bland.
At least now you can say that you can successfully program a camera to record in underwear-time.
Thanks for the review... but... what does "At least now you can say that you can successfully program a camera to record in underwear-time." mean?
You got my 5 for the audio.
The visuals I found to be rather repetitive and lacking, I also found the oversized hands annoying. The music to go along with it however was extremely well done and clever in how seamless it was. The only thing I would change in that would be adding a verse in about the rape of the environment. It would fit with the Fuzzy Math theme if you linked it to corporate funding being the deciding factor, and I'm sure that would NOT be difficult. Some other missed opportunities were concerning Haliburton taking America to war, Hussein having nothing to do with Bin Laden attacking, the 9/11 commission's interview with Bush and Cheney being a complete joke, etc. the list goes on.
A clip from the first debate where he erroneously referred to "September 10th" would have made something amusing as well. Hopefully all these points could make it into a future remix. Don't be discouraged by your sub 3.5 score either, that is only due to the sheep of Newgrounds getting offended and voting 0, bashing your opinion rather than rating your efforts as they should.
Probably the best Sonic parody on Newgrounds.
You know, the sad thing is, everyone's voices were far superior to those in any of the games, especially Knuckles', Tails', and Amy's.
Also I highly doubt that Shadow would be attracted to Maria, she was practically his sister. To that degree as well I would have liked if Shadow's memories of his childhood were about his being raised in the military installation that he actually was, roughly the same jokes could have worked for it.
Keep up the good work, oh and making fun of Mexicans at every opportunity gets a little old.
Flash animations were not meant to be this good.
The directing was excellent, there have been many much, much worse uses of the camera, visual fullness, and pacing in many actual action films, including good ones. For once in an SWF the sound was impressive as the sights as well. You didn't put in mindless sounding death metal (not implying that all is) during the action to add emphasis and it payed off, just the stark contrasting sounds of a true warzone were there in lucidly defined space really adding to the atmosphere without ever letting you slip back into reality.
Oh, and the blood splattering on the quote unquote camera, nice touch.
This makes me want someone to make a post apocalyptic warfare mod for an upcoming first person shooter engine so badly...
Best stick animation in a while.
You kept the deaths fresh through the entire thing, for all the dozens of them deathmatching it never got repetitive. I really liked the extremely high level of interactivity with the environment. One of the coolest things about this is...Half Life 2 deathmatch WILL be like this. Sans the close combat, but people will change that I'm sure. Only thing I might have changed is perhaps one being somewhat longer lived so the viewer has someone to root for, but that might make it too comparable to Xiao Xiao. Keep this up, I look forward to more if you plan on it. Great ending as well.
