    Approved with a 3/5 (Useful). It can't be more since it's very short and simple.

    Nice remake, I like it. But it looks a bit blend, you need to add some more action. For example, there are some guardians in front of the pyramid and the summoner needs to defeat them to enter. He can summon his minions or whatever.
    Good luck with the campaign.

    This cinematic have a proper description and everything else was well develop. It was using precise timing to enable every action to be execute at the exact time without any flaws (Implement by me).

    During the WIP, I have give several comment & opinion about this cinematic to the author Approject via private messaging and it seems like he have fix most of the stuff been mention.

    Resources was approve and 4/5 (Recommend).

    The map description says that Seth has awaken from his deep sleep & at the end of cinematic it is written that he has broken free of seal. None is correct as the sorcerer had awaken him.

    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/pastebin_data/joa72t/WC3ScrnShot_060509_131248_01.jpg
    At just bottom right corner of the screenshot see the wall. I can easily see a line which seperates the brick design.
    Also the quality of the outer wall of the pyramid was odd. Vague somehow.

    The sound at the time when the scene of the tomb of Seth is shown from above has slight problem. It stops a little in between.

    Rating :4/5 & vote for approval
    Don't know why but I just don't feel that it is 5/5 quality. Maybe because Seth did not look like real Seth picture.

    Thanks for the idea, but I was trying to show everything as it was in the original game, it's intro movie.
    Seems I've made a mistake. Going to fix it. Thanks for the notice.
    It's model's problem, I might hide it even if I think it's not a necessity to do so.
    Yes, it does, somewhy. I tried fixing it, but couldn't manage. I may look at it again, the problem must be connected with timing, sounds' intervals timing.
    Exactly, I don't like the current model of Seth since it do not fits him. However, I will repeat meself. None of modelers wanted to get on the creation of the right model.

    Review for: Loki: The Awakening of Seth v1.1

    Camera (7/10)
    The camera was nice made, but you could include more cameras.
    Maybe it's the theme, but I think, the small amount of cameras fits to the cinematic.

    Music/Sounds (7/10)
    This cinematic had music and sounds and they fit very good in the theme.
    The only thing is, that you can hear it how they repeat.
    You can hear it very well in the tomb of Seth.

    Cinematic/Story (4/5)
    Story was nice for an introducing. Nothing to complain about it.
    But you could add a small white fog in the tomb, so it looks more mysterious.

    Terrain (10/10)
    The tomb was very well made, with all things a tomb needs. The only thing was the scene outside the tomb. It looks 'a bit' undecorated.

    Others (4/5)
    Like I mentioned in Cinematic/Story, you could inlude a fog. And the fire pots
    were a nice idea, but the pots before the grave of Seth, began to burn to early.

    My Rating: 4/5 (Recommended :grin:)


    Tips:
    - hmm, I don't know....

    Isn't Loki the Norse God of mischief? I don't quite get why Loki is involved in the name.
    Or is Loki short for something?

    Thanks for the approval, bounty.
    Yes, I might work on these sounds making it not so loud at the beginning and end, making it like that, you wouldn't be able to notice when it ends and starts just by listening carefully.
    Good idea, but it's hard to set one that would fit it, I might ask raid1000 about it if white one fits.
    Yes, Loki is the norse god of mischief. He is the one who started everything, he wants to destroy entire mythology making it only a myth, making gods to be only the legends. Everybody who knows something about norse mythology, knows that Loki wasn't much of a warrior or hero. He was a cowardly half-god who always played on the strongest team. That's why he sent Seth to do his desires. I didn't mention this in cinematic since this will uncover in campaign when you'll have to choose, will you follow Loki and kill the last gods of four mythologies that guards and has everything in their hands or will you refuse the offer of Loki and kill him ending everything.

    ... You just told the whole story of the campaign there XD But anyway i have a few things more: It looks a bit weird at the fire eye that the sorcerer can stand in it until it suddenly disappears and also some of the pillars doesnt really support anything. The pillars were built for supporting something but some of them just stands somewhere :p You should do so it cant be seen that they doesnt support anything or simply make them support something

    The eye's fire is out, simply out.

    Pillars holds the ceiling. Could you show me the screenshot of the part you didin't like? Of course if you can, mark it.

    Well it happens a lot of times where they just stand :p i will try to take some screens in a few moments.

    EDIT: Well it seems youve used the same model as obelisk too :p It made me think that they were pillars... But heres 2 that really looks like pillars in their position

    Oh, these. These are only for decoration, same as there where 8 torches are located. I thought you meant the bigger ones.
    Hehe, thanks.
