I can't believe it.

Oh... man.

Well to start off... the gameplay was the best I've ever seen, and Phurion's editing was great. Music selection was great. Vidol's vfx was fantastic.

But I can't express my overall opinion any other way... some of it just straight up didn't belong and it killed the experience of what would have been an amazing video for me.

There are two types of people:

Person A: Is younger and hasn't had much experience with girls, and thus crave women (we were all 12 years old at one point, we can all relate). Their girlfriends were hot, and because of this, they thought the scene was awesome even though it didn't fit.

Person B: Is more of a normal type of guy when it comes to experience with women. Person B went into this video expecting an awesome Halo video. Person B was completely into the video... and then a random make out scene pops up. Person B thinks to himself "why is there a make out scene doing in a Halo video? This has nothing to do with anything else in the video!" Person B got so confused by the randomness of this scene that he couldn't get back into the feel of the video. Because of it, I didn't enjoy the video... at all. I'd say the same thing if Lord of the Rings had a random RICK ROLL scene in it. What were they thinking?

I'm person B.

It was so forced, so unnecessary, so out of place, and so random. It ruined the mood of the video It's like having a random sex scene in the middle of Lord of the Rings. Cool... if you're 12 years old. How am I supposed to get back into the captivated state a long for when I'm watching a video when I have something that random popping up midway through?

And the rest of the intro was brilliant! Really goddamn original. But I could not enjoy the rest of the video past that point because the entire time I kept shaking my head asking myself "Why the hell was that element in the intro?"". And it was so corny... so out of place... so random... I mean I literally can't believe I saw what I did. It ruined the emotion of the video, it obliterated the mood. Why would you do this? To prove you "aren't a nerd"?

That's great, I'm all about having a solid image. But when you're this obvious about it... the bullet backfires and you shoot yourself in the foot. All it screams is insecurity... and honestly that's not even the worst part about it. The worst part about it is ruining an amazing video that would have been one of my favorites. Go ahead, prove to the world you are a cool... but don't hurt the quality of the video on this anticipated video in the process.

Disappointment isn't the right word. I am... surprised.

Just being honest, congrats on the gameplay, it was ridiculous. Editing by Phurion was top notch and enhanced the footage, and Vidol's 3D was very professional. Props on trying to be original... I loved the intro for instance. But originality doesn't cut it if it comes off as random and unnatural, and it certainly didn't justify the randomness of the make out scene.

So why a 5.2 when nearly everything in the video was so great? Because that one portion ruined everything in the video that was great for me.

This was terrible. The real life crap was retarded, and I think they need to prove that they have lives, even if they're pathetic. Yay, Neighbor kissed a girl? How cute. Like no one else has done that before. The filming was shaky (and bad) and the acting was almost cringe worthy. Wait, it was cringe worthy. The concept of the dream, however, was pretty good and the 3D was great too.

The gameplay was obviously good but it wasn't complimented by the editing and the songs. I hated the editing anyway, especially in the first song.


Creativity: 4 (Only the dream part gets points.)
Concent: 5 (All for the gameplay, real life footage gets 0.)
Editing: 4 (Didn't compliment the gameplay.)
Music: 7 (Muse ftw.)
Quality: 7 (A few clips weren't too good.)

This does not deserve to be on TMV.

When I saw them doing stuff I literaly thought the whole video was a joke, and turned it of, but when I read some comments saying content was great I seriously thought it was sarcastic-homosexual jokes. I was wrong, and there was actually gameplay in it?!

The real life part made no sense what so ever, I have to honestly give it 0/10.

That 3 Dimensional part was really good, but put into the worst possible place I can think of.

Gameplay was really good, but I felt like some clips were used to just fillout some spots.

Editing was alright, was put a great effort into syncing, but some effects felt really unnecesary. And those black screens with some beats made me insane, was really uncomfortable to watch.

Music was pretty good, I liked some songs.

Those real life videos had very corny clips then good then corny again... Gameplay quality was really good though.


I must say I am really disapointed with this.

The intro was really something, but after that the next 2-3 minutes just went way downhill for me. The real life footage was just idk it just ruined a lot of the feel for me. Once the 2nd song picked up i was pleased much more. That second songs editing and gameplay was just very well done. Credits were so freaking corny. The good outweighs the bad in this but the bad stoke out so muchhhhh.

They should have just started with Vidol's intro instead of all the retarded real life scenes. That way I wouldn't have to sit through 4 minutes of uncertainty of what I was watching, a Halo 3 video or some dudes driving a car. They didn't really bring anything new except the phone conversation, which I thought was pretty cool.

Real life footage kind of ruined the content for me.

This montage could have been great, it could have been amazing. The actual quality of the halo 3 clips are superb. However, the whole video is ruined by everything else.

I will start with my view on the editing as this should be the most important part of a video. My opinion is, the actual editing is ok. I am kind of impressed by the flying camera work on the maps but this does not save the fact I feel the music/clips have not been manipulated to interact with each other. They just feel like two separate things thrown together.

The introduction, which is about 4minutes long can be split into 2 sections. The first is the pointless statement at the start that Str8 Rippin are still the team to beat in a season that starts next week. The second is trying to prove to the world that gamers have a social life as well as a decent/fun job. Well it doesn't pay off. With the corny acting, bad camera work and what could just as easily have been hired models it falls far short of a decent idea to put into a montage.

Midway through, the montage implements a phone call, which I actually quite like but yet again the cut scene takes up too much time with bad acting and should have stopped when they put on their Triggers Down shirts. I also feel the phone call would have been best suited to start the montage rather then just a time filler in the middle.

Finally to end the whole montage they have some voice over which yet again fails to get anyone pumped/hyped/feel some sort of emotion as a montage should do.

The whole montage is full of failure, the only impressive part was the 3D work which I believe the creator got paid a nice salary for. I hope everyone involved in this will look over it in a week or 2weeks time and realize how it has been an opportunity, to prove themselves, missed.

I felt awkward watching them sleep, run, make out with their girlfriends. I was like who is filming this and why? I think that whole segment did nothing but show their insecurity about gaming for a living. The actual intro was absolutely gorgeous though, jaw-dropping. The audio was amazing, sick song and sound effects. Props to Vidol for that. The actually video was solid. I felt that the colors were over-saturated throughout, I don't know if it was something you added or the capture settings or what. The syncing was fantastic, the intermission with the phone call was a great touch.

So overall, a very good video. The real life footage, though, was a little too much.

Take out the stupid, unnecessary scenes, and you've got yourself a tage with a sick 3 minute intro, a relatively plain body(which is the most important part) and cheesy sounding credits. Overall, it was a good film but it's only because of the amazing introduction. Amazing intro =/= sick tage

Basically the only good thing about this montage was 2:07 - 2:55
The real life stuff was just what ruined it for me. It was so pointless and has nothing to do with a halo 3 vid. I mean maybe if it were "Legit" footage of them at a tourny then ya but thats been done before too. The 3d was just crazy amazing vidol did an amazing job. Phurion however did a great job with the body of the montage. Great mix of songs and amazing frags. But the whole real life idea didnt mix or have the feel of a montage. Phurion definally did the job along with that sick intro from vidol, but the real life footage should have been left out IMO.

I found this video really indigestible

For Exogenesis Symphony Part 2 I wanted a different atmosphere, something that goes crescendo

Then I would have passed from the scene where the two friends are happy because they earn, it adds nothing to the video (no offense)
Until that moment I was really struggling to watch the video, it is not limited if I wanted to stop but when the last party started then ...

It was beautiful, I FINALLY felt a real work environment, kills were perfect sync with music by TobyMac Showstopper, I really loved the camera effects short, it was really nice to have it looked at Fortunately catch the first part that was so boring in comparison! : /

Finally I would just say that even if I'm not a fan of Muse I think you could have brought a certain mood, atmosphere that I received with your second part

Last but VERY important:
Do your girlfriends over a video, what it brings to the video? NOTHING

Most people say the real life footage ruined this, but I thought it gave the video a feel that, there's more to it than just the game. I loved the 3D intro, despite the controversy of ViDoL stealing it from Greyscalegorilla or whatever the case is.

The music choice and the way the clips were put in, from how Ryan explained to me, was amazing, and suit the video perfectly, I loved the song choice as well.

The editing on the first part was chill and enjoyable, but the second gameplay part was so simple, yet it is some of the most professional I have seen. This is definetely in my top 5 Halo 3 Videos, and it's going to stay there for a long time.
