Christmas is just around the corner folks! Aren't you all excited? Oh yes, the review.
Here we have a Futurama Model pack from the show, Futurama. For those of you who aren't familiar with this show, it's on Comedy Central. If you want more information on the show's main plot, you can find it here:
The first thing you'll notice about these models is the cel-shading. For those of you who don't know what cel-shading is, it's basically a technique used on skins & models to make them more cartoonish perse. As you can see, these models look just like the actual characters from the show. Cel-shading was actually a very good idea for this model pack because It gives you the feel of actually being in Futurama. Or is that just me?
The first model in the pack is Fry. Fry is the main character in the popular show, and if you've watched Futurama from the beginning, you'd know his full story. The author did a great job on the textures of Fry. The cel-shading definitely added to the amazing features. Fry actually comes with two versions: With his jacket, and without it. Both versions are very good, and I didn't see any real problems with the actual model.
The next model in the line-up is Bender. Unfortunately, I think the author made a boo-boo, because you can't change to the model in-game due to an unsupported model error. I'm sure the Author can fix this in a version two, but meanwhile, you'll all have to suffer through the fact that you can't play as Bender with this pack! >_>
Last but not least, we have Leela. Yes, the cyclops with two ya-ya's and one eye! Strange, isn't it? Oh well. Anyways, once again, the author did a great job on this model. My only problem with Leela is when you look up, the back of her head looks squareish. Now, I'm not sure if this was intentional, or something you couldn't really fix. Although, I'd like to see it have more of a round look in a possible version two. Besides, when was the last time you'll saw a person walking around with a square head? Lately? Nope.
Ah, I almost forget the sound files! You'll also notice that the taunts are quite funny, and are quotes directly from the show. I would tell all of you what they are, but I wouldn't wanna ruin the surprise now would I?
Also, there's a hidden npc in this model pack, and it's none other than Lars himself from Bender's Big Score, the first Futurama movie. I'll leave it to all of you to figure out the npc name....
Overall, this is an awesome model pack, and the cel-shading makes it so much more like the actual characters in the show. I'm pretty sure you'll all have hours of fun playing as Fry, and Leela! Unfortunately, as I said, Bender is unplayable at the moment. Hopefully Ambrom can fix the model file in the next version. This is definitely worth a download if you are a fan of Futurama.
