Amazing music video!
Oh god, I was so delighted to spot a Sonata Arctica tribute flash.
While they aren't technically the band that made me a sort of metalhead, I started off listening to Blind Guardian, Edguy, Hammerfall and the like, then making me a huge Sonata fan as soon as I discovered their music..
Anyways, enough about my SA opinion, onto the real purpose of this review: the Flash itself!
The drawing and animation is nothing short of stunning, speedy and flashing at times, filled with cool effects and backgrounds recognisable by any SA fan, and the video as a whole just 'fits' the mood of the song, and perhaps that of the band as well.
Also nice to see that you put so much effort into the menus and credits, that's dvd-like quality stuff right there :)
Can't wait to see any more of your stuff, great work man!
PS: Did you send this movie to the band members, or post it on their forums or something ?
If you get any response from them, it'd be cool if you could post it in your author comments or post a link or something :D
yes, another review from a Tupac fan.
I liked the Flash, it was drawn and animated nicely, yet still, the message it brings along remains disrespectul.
Some guy who reviewed a few pages back posted that 2Pac wasn't a great man, because he supposedly didn't do anything for the community, but talk about killing innocent people and stuff.
In my opinion, Tupac is great.
He DID do A LOT for the community, ever since he was an adolescent, he started a lot of campaigns against violence, drugs, and sex abuse.
He also had youth leagues and stuff, so don't say he was a bad person.
About killing innocent people, he did shoot two cops, but it was purely in self-defence, as those cops were DRUNK and ARMED.
He did what he had to do, and was one of the greatest rappers EVER, while still remaining sincere..
It looked awesome !
Seriously, the drawing and animation was really really good.
However, you need to build in more of a story.
I'm sure that if you made it a bit longer, with more of a story, it would have a waaaay higher score.
Anyway, since I loved your art & animation, I voted 5.
Breathes fresh air into an old concept
Games like this have been done hundreds of times before, but then again, which type of game hasn't !?
The style used in this particular game is really one of the strongest points.
I loved the graphical style, and there were lots of nice original touches (like the sunglasses on the water level) which add that 'spark' to the game.
The gameplay is tried and tested, but the addition of health and enemies adds a nice twist to it, the level design was simple but smart, and the game as a whole just feels like a professional production..
Great work, can't wait to see more of your stuff!
I just beat this game on my Wii :)
It's even more challenging (and fun) pointing a wiimote around :P
Anyway, great job man, keep 'em coming..
...But the poor collision detection in Walls Mode ruined it for me.
Other modes played fine though, you did a great job :)
