How many Anakin models have we had? They've all been decently okay, but none yet have truly captured that particular 'Anakin' essence. Unfortunately this model is no different. When I first saw the screenshots, I thought to myself "that looks kind of like Harry Potter." That may be going a bit too far, but the face of this model definitely isn't shaped quite right. As it stands, Anakin looks like he's about 13 years old. I'm not even really kidding - his face is much too thin, and the image the author photosourced for the face was probably not the best choice. The result: prepubescent Anakin. Also, the scar across his eye was very poorly done. It uses the crack technique, which is to paint a 1-pixel black line and copy a 1-pixel white line next to it. Unfortunately the author didn't use a 1-pixel brush, and that isn't really the proper technique for a scar.
The rest of the model isn't bad, but I find myself wondering if the author has borrowed any textures - or even the base of the model - because his read-me was so vague. He credits Kevin Coyle as a being 'very useful' but doesn't explain how. I give him the benefit of the doubt, here, hoping that the model is entirely the author's work.
We do have bot and NPC support, but the bot personality file is in spanish so English-speakers may not particularly appreciate that. Also, the sounds... they're... they're... reborn sounds! Why??! Well, the taunts are anyway. I can assure you none of those sounds escaped the lips of Hayden Christiansen. The result is it looks like a 13 year old, but it sounds like a 35 year old. Very strange.
Is this the best Anakin model? No. Is it the worst? No, I've definitely seen worse. Is it worth a download? That's up to you. I don't like Anakin anyway ;)
