Awesome episode!

The shower scene was something new for TMO. Nice to see.

VOs? Steller, as always

Special fx, mods, and lots of custom stuff. The Enigma series gets better with every episode.

Pulling at the heart strings and giving us an emotional ending. WOW!

Once again, you add to your legend!! or is it Legacy? either way.

Are you held up in some cabin somewhere making these things? Why do you push this lionhead offering to the limit? Why, I say, why? Holy crap. Each ep gets better. Amazing. Simply amazing. Great work, but I expect nothing less from you.

A solid flick with some great mods, fantastic overlays, a decent plot, hardcore action, good dialogue, and an all star cast.
What else could one ask for?

5 stars from the Archaic Review Board

Editing-4-(Out of 4):Editing was pretty good. Didn't see any major issues here.
Dialogue-2-(Out of 3):Some minor problems, I suspect it was from a bug in the program and not something that you put in. Also, Some of the voiceactors had minor pops when they were doing there parts.
Plot/Originiality-5-(Out of 5):The plot wasn't extraordianry, but you managed to weave a couple of plots together to make an interesting film. Good job, thats not easy to do in a short movie. Now if you could have gotten the both plots fully fleshed out it would be great. The love plot worked well, the other didn't quite work, but that maybe because I havn't seen the first two episodes, so I will give you the benefit of the doubt.
Entertainment-4-(Out of 5): Good, dragged a bit in a couple of spots but overall a well made movie.
Music/Sound-3-(Out of 3):Some excellent music, good job on that.
Total :18 out of 20 - 5 stars - Excellent

GREETINGS FROM L.M.A.O. STUDIOS!

Unbelievably amazing!

Ubernewbie has created a world that is unlike anything like I have ever seen on TMO and it is known as Enigma!

This is the best episode of the series so far. It just keeps getting better.

The cast is also the best so far in recording clarity and performance. Never have the cast been so consistently clear and balanced. Such a treat to the ears and adds so much to the film. Truly!

The whole �??drop-ship�?? sequence had my jaw dropped.

The dessert scenes of this film are some of the best mod uses/set designs I have seen.

The sound was so emmersive and climatic, I felt I was watching a full length film.

All hail the Sci-fi series King!

That was pretty good. Nice camera work. I didn't understand some of it but the mods, VO's, overlays, writing, almost everything made me like this film. I can understand that this is a very succesful series you have.

An exceptional sci-fi movie! I thought it was just going be all about the mods and custom sets, which were great(especially Bongoman's animations),but this movie had a great story and was well written! Keep up the good work.


Have fun

I think I said everything I have to say about the Enigma series in my reviews before. Even if I wasn't that happy with the cross over episode, I'm still a fan. =)

Super episode! Excellent story that had me hooked once it began. Ships looked outstanding, all the animations and setdressing blew me away. From space to desert anywhere it took place I loved it! Everything in this episode was mind blowing. VOs were loud and clear, dialogue was solid and mods were amazing. Great work Uber and can't wait to see the next brilliant episode

Cheers

Really wonderfully created with amazing overlays. It was a delight to see this movie as it really got my attention, especially with the amazing special effects, it was a sort of 'blown away' style created.

Fantastic mods as well, it shows that you have payed a lot of effort and time making this movie. Also the storyline still grows strong with amazing detail, especially the ending, where you made it in your own style. Excellent directing as well, which really shows on the characters feeling and emotions and how they communicate with each other, really magnificently done.

Overall, I found this movie exciting, entertaining, with cutting-edge special effects. A nice episode to watch and it will be intersting to know how you will continue your 'Enigma' Series. Five star.

The best scripted, more well thought out episode to date. A solid story that goes beyond the modding fortunes of the series and reminds us at the heart of every story lies characters with something to say. This was really fantastic to watch and clearly the evolution of the characters and the series is at a golden moment in this Episode.

Well done.

And I loved the desert planet...just amazing..

Finally, after all that wait from this episode's initial announcement and sneak peek, we get what all us Enigma fans are waiting for. Great action, glorious effects, and that landmaster (I always loved that from the "Damnation Alley" movie--the actual landmaster used in that film is parked in a prop lot just five miles from my home). Great end battle sequence there! I was actually worried that Master Sgt. Kwong would get killed (don't know why, but I have a certain affinity for that character). Now I guess we've got to wait for the next mind-blowing episode.

Astonishing.

Brilliant mod work once again. Good visuals as always. A great story with some nice acting and music. Good set dressing once again and some nice battle scenes.

Overall, another great installment. You always impress the audience with every Enigma episode Uber.

Good work!

Fantastic eye candy - the very thing a sci-fi fan likes. But enough about the "naughty" Corporal Amanda Harrison (haha - gets them every time) .. the mods in this film were also superb; the spaceships, sets, overlays, costumes, the works.

Good performances - especially in the battle scene by the squad under fire.

The film wasn't without its glitches - a crucial line went missing in the middle, I think it was meant to explain what the plan was going to be. A minor synchronisation problem later on (VO and lip synch) and I noticed two goofs in the transporter room:
"I'm beaming up the first four now"
- he beams up three people -
"that's four up, locking onto four more"
- he beams up five people!

That might seem trivial, but it would have changed the ending if he'd continued beaming people up in groups of five instead of four.

Still - there was much great spectacle here that outshone the mistakes, and a love story that helped setup the ending for maximum impact.

A solid episode with a few hiccups but many more very nice touches spread throughout. The ship and planet overlay looked wonderful and the sound work was pretty spot on. Story worked pretty well till the end when it seemed rushed. You are really churning out some quality product.

Really cool, with lots of action. V.O's were pretty good, better than many I've heard.

Really cool mods, and the music well suited the episode.

Really the only critique that I can think of is that one of the scenes had one of the character's mouth moving before he spoke. Those 2 or 3 seconds could have been edited out.

Besides that, it was really good.

I'll be on the lookout for more.

Ahhh... Uber mate you've done it again!

You thought Ep 2 was ground-breaking in the world of modding? Pfft... This part blows all others away with the amount of unique detail in creating a new world to take us too... From the animated actors, to the world building with your arsenal of mods, you succeeded once again in taking us to another planet.

Great story, and by God, they were Love Birds weren't they =D Captain Hero shoulda checked to see if their lips were stuck together...

A few technical errors, such as a disappearing/reappearing AA prop on a bunker at about 3:07 (which I found a bit humorous) and the obvious glitch about 4:19 in where John talks without saying anything...
These were minor and do nothing to really detract from the overall experience, I just thought I'd point them out.

Still, some volume levels were a little iffy, with Hero's voice commanding the scene, but it's a huge improvement and I'm not really one to comment on audio levels =P

Another exhilarating and thoroughly entertaining installment, a nice tribute, and a great ending too. Fantastic effort and detail in the film.

Congratulations on my 6 star award... wait... the series already has it... I may have to make a 7th star award just for this Enigma series =P

YOU DIDNT MAKE THOSE OVERLAYS, I DID. YOU NEVER THANKED ME FOR MAKING THEM EITHER.

You won't be getting any more overlay animations from me.

A new episode of Enigma is always cause for celebration, moreso because each episode builds on the last. Here we see how fraternization works on the Atlas, and it ain't pretty...on many levels.

As always, great effects, superb set dressing and set design, the usual excellent performances from the actors...what do you want, it's Enigma.

And it has a real dropkick ending to boot.

Another Excellent episode to the series. I dunno what to say, everything is just as good if not better than the previous episodes. You continue to show off new content that gives this series the fresh look that is needed.
Loved the story, great character creation and interaction. I kind of expected the ending you were going to do (oh except the very last shot) but I didn't mind that.

Strider Out!

Excellent episode! It was interesting to incorporate love scenes into this series. Also there was an awesome display of special fx that kinda chugged my mind as to how you did that(especially EE's CGI). I hope episode 4 is soon on the way.
