This is one of the reasons I started animating. Still one of the best collabs on Newgrounds, five years later, too.
Animation is good, but I remember watching this years ago when it first came out and it helped me win a Panera Gift-Card at my school when trivia about the local area came up. Question was "Who was the famous musician from our school district that went on to smash some pumpkins?"
Love halo, first of all. The more of these halo parodies I see the better. A good of the jokes I thought were pretty lulsworthy and the art/drawing was pretty alright. I'd recommend stepping up your framerate though on your actual flash or use eased-tweens so it's smoother. Cut back on the blurs to differentiate perspective and just add different angles, filters really kill scenes in certain flashes and this was one of them. Simple fade to white as the guy below me said would be clear for a flash back. You're alluding to (remember my last partner) so it should be clear as long as you aren't retarded.
Now to get Halo nerdy.
Master Chief is a naval rank, Captain Keys can't give him that. Nearly all Spartans were Master Chief something, 117 was Master Chief Petty Officer of the Naval Forces. You have Master Chief wearing Mark VI armor, when he had Mark V until 2553 (Halo 2.) 116 although a good tool for humor, isn't a real Spartan. All the Spartan II's that aren't the following (006, 008, 023, 029, 030, 034, 039, 042, 043, 044, 047, 051, 052, 058, 059, 069, 079, 087, 092, 093, 101, 104, 111, 117, 122, 130, 141, 005, 018, 066, 075, 084, 303) died before they received their number.
Animation needs to be better. Needs to be more halo accurate. Kthx.
Thanks for your constructive critisism in regards to the first paragraph.. but i would like to clarify for you and all other viewers, that this is intended to be a parody and not a documentry of the halo series. your thinking to much.
I was going to vote 0, because it's another one of Decades half assed attempts at art. But then I played it and that would be unfair to the coders, so I just pretended some other newb who isn't quite as immature or lame as decade made it so I could cope.
I am awe struck.
This is amazing, why this game has such a low review score and only got Daily 2nd I will never know. The game brings me back to the old doom era, this is truly amazing to be achieved in flash. You guys rock.
Horrible Hit Detection, Badly Traced Graphics, short, grunts can't be killed when moving, etc.
Brought a tear to my eye, srsly.
