File Description

Everyone fancies themself a General Grievous fan these days. I wonder, though, how many will see this in the file list and say "Hey, that's Grievous! Rock on!" Few, I'm betting. In any case, this is Grievous before he became so grieved. Out of all the characters in the prequels -- except maybe Jango Fett -- Grievous seemed to be the most interesting and yet the most disappointingly portrayed. However simply because his part was botched doesn't mean he's any less of an interesting character. Indeed this particular model portrays part of that interest. I'll leave you to hit Wookieepedia and read up on it if you don't already know.

Let's get into the technicals. The model, I would say, is about 75% accurate to the original. Several parts were taken from Raven models, so those in and of themselves make the model inaccurate. The torso is far too small/frail, as his torso is supposedly covered in armor as far as I can tell. The face isn't quite shaped right, and the cape doesn't seem big enough and isn't tattered at the bottom.

Some aspects of the texturing also don't help things along. The sleeves and flesh areas seem random -- the striations on the sleeves don't seem to be present in the images I've seen. One of the biggest problems with the textures is they rely far too heavily on photoshop filters. Filters only get you so far. The rest has to come down to by-hand tweaks.

Now on to the in-game performance. It's not too bad, really, despite some missing sounds and some really poor weighting in some areas (namely the cape -- capes are hard to weigh, but you can do them somewhat believably). Sounds such as the jump sound and the land sound are missing, so they are replaced by default Jaden sounds.

Well gee, that all seemed so negative. Let's move on to some positive things, since this model isn't all that bad. A custom weapon has been included with this mod, namely Kummar's Lig sword. It seems a bit small, but otherwise seems to fit. A new sound has also been included, supposedly taken from an interview with Matthew Wood. No team skins, which is a shame, but bot support has been included, which is a nice addition.

Overall a good and new addition to our archives that, while it could certainly benefit from more attention, is certainly acceptable as-is.

Bot Support: Yes Team Support: No NPC Support: No New Sounds: Yes
