MYTHIC COPS 1
||AoM: The Titans
Streamable Video version available at www.pftq.com/mythiccops
"Mythic Cops" is a wacky story of two cops (Jacobble Stone & Carshoo Lase) attempting to catch a dark and powerful sorceror named Sorrowman - for speeding over the 5 MPH speed limit on Highway LoLoL. The chase leads our two characters from their home in Greece to dark and creepy caves. In their attempts to write Sorrowman a ticket, the two policemen may find themselves in an crazier adventure than they bargained for.

Well, this is a cinematic, so it's kinda hard to have a good or bad playabilty.
The evil sorcerror and that guy who looked like a fanatic and could heroize himself (I forgot his name) were pretty much as strong as eachother. At first the sorserror seemed stronger, but the cop made a strong comeback, and they both died during the fight, so I guess the balance is good
There were a lot of original features in this cinematic, the moving rocks and fireballs, the speeder who drives over other people, the trapdoor. I also liked how you used mini Heka Gigantes to launch the characters. Also the unit animations were good timed and fitted the story nicely. Plus the bloopers you made at the end were pretty funny
Map Design: 5
The cave in which most of the story plays is nicely worked out. The terrain was mixed well (no large grounds of plain Hades2) Also the elevation was good and you used enough objects to complete a perfect terrain.
The big line of the story is not very complicated, but it's about an original subject. It's about a modern day event, but it stays in a historical context well. The details of the story (the fight scenes were prety original and different as the the previous one) make it exelent and intresting at every point of the movie.
Ladies and Gentlemen. THIS is how a good cinematic is supposed to look like. Well Done, and you have to tell me how you made those moving fireballs in the intro and at the point were the sorcerror killed all the archers in the army.
I am building a cinematic as well, but now I have seen this, I realise that mine will suck compared to this.
Complements from Reinfire
A few glitches with the triggers. Any events that were fired off by eitri animations wouldn't work on my computer. Don't know why.
(Insert Balance analysis here)
Funny, witty, surprising. Need I say more?
Map Design: 5
Not much opportunity for eye candy, but what you did do was really good.
Such a wild and wacky adventure. Unreal, yet still understandable and believeable.
Love the whole thing. I can't stop watching it. Jacobble is such an idiot, you just know when he's going to do something stupid. It's fantastic. One suggestion though, perhaps you could try and fix a few triggers so that they work without using the eitri anim files. That might make them easier. There was the yourfather 2_0, yourfather 2_1 and one of the FVS_surround triggers, it was the one where sorrowman tells carshoo not to squish him, i can't remember what it's called though. Anyway, it was an awesome cinematic. I can't wait to see your next one.
No bugs, lags, ect. to speak of. Cinematic moved from scene to scene and shot to shot smoothly.
Same as above.
Very creative story idea and pretty good jokes as well as things I never would have thought of using in a cinematic, the monkeys for example. Also thought the Methane Chickens was funny and I don't know how you came up with that idea, but it was a good one.
Map Design: 5
From the cave to the volcano, the entire map was spot-on perfect.
Again, the story was very creative. It was a funny cinematic that kept me very much interested and continued to suprise me throughout the whole cinematic. I never was bored and I could never predict what would happen next.
Additional Comments: Best cinematic I have viewed to date. This is a must-download for everyone.
I enjoyed this movie a lot. It's actionpacked and filled with jokes and loads of humour and tricks, using the effects of the AoM editor very well. The first time I saw this I laughed a lot. When I watched it today, I still kept laughing at many of the jokes and tricks used. So this has a certain replay value. I think I've watched it 5 times or more and I'm still not tired of it. There was no lag, no misses, nothing whatsoever, and the good use of tricks from the game mixed with the humorous story, it makes it one of my favourite movies in AoM.
There isn't really much more to say. Since there's no bugs or anything there's little to write, and the cut-scene was hilarious from beginning to the end. An obvious 5
Since it's a pure cinematic, or cut-scene as I'm used to call it, there are no playable elements and no way to judge the balance. The review guidelines therefore say it should get a direct 5.
The authour has used a load of tricks making this map. From the speeder racing down people, to the heroizing and deheroizing, volcanoes spitting people and lots of other things, I can just say that this is very creative. The whole theme is, to my knowledge, all new and the authour uses a good way to present the jokes and pretty much everything in the cut-scene. Each scene has one or more creative aspects, both in trick-, design- and/or joke-way. I can simply just conclude into a 5
MAP DESIGN: 5
Everything was very well made and it was a pleasure to watch. The design suits the cut-scene and the theme very well and it's overall very good made. It's simple yet clever, from the very beginning to the end. In conclusion, a perfect enviroment for the theme and the cut-scene. A 5
STORY & INSTRUCTIONS: 5
There aint much to say about the instructions, since you dont need any to start the cut-scene and watch it to the end. The story however is cretive, well built up, filled with humour and lots of jokes, turning points, creative aspects, nostalgic moments, such as when Sorrowman tells Carshoo he's his father. It was a great pleasure to follow the two cops in their 'quest' to fine Sorrowman for 5$, leading to the death of pretty much all of the police force, a bunch of chickens and more people. Nothing but a 5 is fair here.
IN CLOSING: An actionpacked, creative and simply hilarious cut-scene/movie. A recommended download for everyone.
