  • Probably the best Machinima made to date - "Sands of Fire"

    I have been following these guys for about two years now. But the history of this machinima is longer than one might think. They started making it in 2006. And just three days ago the first part got released.

    It took them forever and took (as you will see) a lot of animation and editing to make it. And now its finally released. Enjoy :)

    That was very, very good. Its one of the best machinimas for sure. The custom BF2 animations give the realism were so many game movies fall down.

    Well worth watching. Not to spoil the story but it is certainly based on a movie, which is in turn based on real events.

    For those interested here is a poster:

      I was very impressed with it. I sat at my computer inches from the screen eating popcorn and rooting for the Marines! It was a damn fine job by all of them. I cant wait for more.

        Helicopter pilots voice was taken from Delta Force : Black Hawk Down anycase anyone wants to know, 5-1 being the character you play. (also called at points 5-9, and at points refers to himself as Delta 5-x.... guess where my name came from)

              If you do the download, there is a folder titled ArtWork that has a bunch of before and after shots showing how much editing they did.
