Brian - The life of Brian in the 21st century...a dogs life:

If someone`s want to know who let the dogs out.... well.....it was not Outkast, that`s for sure. Obviously this model representates a speaking and drinking dog of a TV-series.
Please don`t blame me lacking knowledge, but I must admit not knowing it.

The pros:
A very funny character in an uncommon style. This is truly a special for the comic fans among us!
The portait and the bio are also quite funny, at least for hobby sarcasts like me.
A custom voicepack with a couple of taunts is also used and the small model looks funny.

The cons:
The shading effects are a little bit too heavy, they make the dog look like he`s made of metal or something.
The whole theme doesn`t fit exactly into the unreal style, you should definitaly have more comic skins on your HD for advantages.
Unfortunately the voicepack is only a taunt compilation in average sound quality (Ok, there are 2 Acks in there) and can only be usefull for Deathmatch.
But it seems that Brian prefers DM anyways because he comes without teamcolors.

Words by reviewer:
Fans of this series or of cartoon style will surely have their fun with that model, but the "normal" players not knowing that series or wanting not so UNREAL characters should save their download.
As I use to say, with teamcolors this skin would have gotten a higher rating, but accourding to originality, humour and the custom stuff (portrait,voice..h..tauntpack) this model crosses the line with a

Total Score of 3.25/10

I give this one a total score of 3/10

Oh by the way, this type of shading effects is call "cell shading", and it's supposed to look like metal or whatever MaxX said. I'd still give a 4.5/10.

Family Guy is a very kickass show, but i absolutely hate this model :(

:rolleyes: Honestly, I think the skin is cute, and I agree with UTGirl.. if used for real, actually play, it's rediculous. If you would make it a bit smaller, I think it would be adorable. I give it a 2/5.
