Cinematic - The Last Scenario Designer

Author File Description
annihilator2000
File Details
Game Version: TWC
Screenshot:
This is a cinematic and NOT a playable scenario. It is a humorous movie about 15 minutes long about a last scenario designer and his fight against ES (Ensemble Studios) to bring back scenario designing. You should enjoy this cinematic even if you know nothing about scenario designing! Features stunning eyecandy and cinematography, building mashing, humorous dialog, and more!
This cinematic was made to encourage scenario designing and in hope that ES will fix some of the bugs in the editor.

Great Cinematic.

You put a lot of work into it.

Once you have voice files for each character, it would deserve 5 rating.

aoe3bill47 Very good Cinematic. How long did it take you to make it? Too bad that anyone from Microsoft, Esemble Studios, or heavengames did not pay you for the time and effort making this. I enjoyed it, and I know other people I will notify about it and watch it wil enjoy it also.

The cinematic worked fine on my computer.

Balance: 5
Even though it was just a cinematic it was balanced.

Creativity: 4
Very creative and detailed.

Map Design: 4
The design for the story was good.

Story/Instructions: 4
The readme had everything you needed to run the cinematic. The story was good and had funny parts in it.

Additional Comments:
If you make another one, you good make a few more jokes and it a little funnier than this one. You could also make a regular story with some action and drama to make it intersting also.

Well, I finally decided to reply to all these reviews that have been posted since I last posted here. First of all, thank you all for the reviews, and I'm glad you liked the cinematic.
I also know that I promised voice acting, and I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN! I had a bit of trouble getting actors, but those who did submit voice did a very nice job and I know that it will improve the cinematic. I'll try and get the voice finalized and added as soon as I have some time, I'm a bit busy with school at the moment. I also have a few upgrades to go along with voice acting, including everything compiled into one scenario with choice dialog to choose the version, a few dialog tweaks, and a couple of bug fixes.
I also know many of you want a sequel or another cinematic - currently I want to focus my scenario design on a MASSIVE rpg and also CSO, however another cinematic sometime in the future is quite likely.
Thanks again for all the nice comments, I'll try and give more information on this and other things soon (soon, of course, is relative :P).
