    REVIEW

    First off, this is not something I'd normally download but I've taken a look for this review and quite enjoyed myself doing it. This pack is really geared toward the younger UT players and many characters may be known to them 'cause I'm assuming they're from some kinda' cartoon - If they're not they sure should be. Here goes...

    The Good:

    Big selection of characters to choose from. The models are pretty cool and I need to describe each as best I can - these are the good ones with a little info;

    Samus - looks cool - helmeted robot type character with cartoony look. Nice, bright and colourful.
    Samus Prime - as above - this is a darker black/grey version
    Samus Gravity - as above - purple and red version (colours don't mix on this)
    A.N.N.A - Bespectacled plump guy in a space suit - looks very funny indeed :lol:
    Halo MC - Skinnier (I think) version of the Halo game character
    Getta1 & Grandizer - Both models remind me of transformers or something along those lines. Something oriental in the design methinks.
    Another model, S Fusion is a modified version of the first mentioned.

    Lots of skins of the author's personal friends (mercs and juggs) (smiling mostly) :lol: Couple of good Alien skins. I may have forgotten some as this pack's so big! Some portraits are really good making them look like superheroes.

    All are available as the player's character in Single Player mode which is a plus for those who want them.

    Finally, the ReadMe instructions re. installation are easy to follow (no "I don't know where to put it" here).

    The Bad:

    No team colours :eek: Most of the skins are too bright and the faces in particular look nearly white in game - package would have been better without them imho. I'd say they'll have online issues for a few reasons but mostly the way they're named. Package could have been compressed more as they're not detailed and also the animation file still has all the default game robot meshes in it.

    The Bottom Line:

    I stress these are really geared toward a younger audience as almost everything in the pack looks cartoony. All the models use the robot animations and voice but some characters would have been better with human voices - It's strange hearing MC speaking in a robotic voice and many other characters look more helmeted human than robot. This is not a bad pack imo and if you forget the skins (except maybe one of the Alien ones which is actually pretty good) it's worthwhile getting just to take a look. A.N.N.A alone will give you a few giggles. Guaranteed this will bring a lot of younger ppl playing UT once they see the parents using some of the models.

    Final words... Lose the skins, release the models separately and they'll be a lot more popular. Still good though :)

    TOTAL SCORE 5.5/10

    I don't get it

    A review without any screenshot / release?

    How can we rate it if we don't seen it?

    Sorted guys.

    Thanks for the info, Turret what can I say I've never seen him :eek: but it is a cool model alright!

    @ CyberSirius I've no idea who Peter Griffin is either :lol: but to me he's certainly the best in the pack :D

    @ Kantham I've added a pic too :)

    Peter Griffin is the guy in Family Guy

    The A.N.N.A costume is from a episode that Peter scrapped the King and Me act. (dktrwft)

    So no custom-animations & voicpacks ?
    It's a shame really ... especially for creatures like Samus

    Did the author make sure he got permission for the copyrighted characters ?

    It's not in the release queue any more, but it is on the site.

    I'm loving those Samus models! \o/

    And JaFO, here's something from the readme :( :

    __________________________

    * Copyright / Permissions *

    UT2K4(R) is a registered trademarks of Digital Extremes and/or Epic Megagames.

    __________________________

    ...yeah.



    And, there are custom animations for all the models (not skins of course) :) but sadly, It's just a slightly tweaked version of the Bots, and all the swimming animations use the forward swim animations.

    Actually as I said in the review, Turret none of the models have custom animations, Default Animation - Robot (BotA) on all models ;)

    @ JaFO there's no mention in the readme about permission re. copyright. I'd assume the models are built from scratch and not ported but the author didn't mention anything. The only one I do know, the Halo character does look different than the original to me :)

    [EDIT] Linked to the pack on site now too

    These models are okay, but for these polls I'm not voting yea on anything without teamskins.

    Samus looks good, if kind of chibi with that vertical head.

    A bug with Samus:

    I'm sorry Samus, but the whole "my arm is out of it's socket" look isn't good on you.
