I'm probably the only person in this world but this demo didn't do much for me and it did not have the same impact as Soliloquy and Lightshaft. I guess i'm growing immune to this epic blockbuster style...
As usual, everything in between the fly-by scenes kicks ass (= the reason for rewatching it) but the percentage of effects versus flyby scenes has shrinked drastically in this release. Also, i don't see any relation or story in the fly-by scenes. The crashed space ship scene was cool though. Well, they were all cool and looked great, but they offer little rewatch value for me personally. I guess i'm not really into fly-by scene demos.
Don't get me wrong though: it looks great, it sounds great and i assume that the code behind it is impressive (can't judge that myself). And yes, Elude is a fab great talented bunch of people.
For a challenge though, i'd really like to see an Elude demo without any fly-by scenes. Something along the lines of Amsterdam Blessings. I'm sure it would be all kinds of awesome :)

From its technical side its brilliant. Also the soundtrack gives a great atmosphere. If it would run smooth on an 68060/50 I would give 5 out of 5. What I am missing is some kind of action. After watching it a second time I feel a bit tired.

my personal 2nd place and the one where i sat and stared at the awesome light/shadowed tunnel and offcoz once again elude splits the amiga boys and girlies in two, but i do think elude gives tbl a run for their money here, displaying some stunning 3d scenes on amiga and showing improvement all around, kalms did not show up with anything new and i personally think that kiero showed "it's time u start showing me what u got!" for me this is a top notch elude show, with a ton of stunning scenes, with my personal fave being the tunnel. I see lots of mixed feelings on eludes show once again, but for me, this was the best the boys have done yet on amiga and a deserved first place and a huge improvement on stringing together each part, this is!! a 5/5 from me and keep on with your attitude guys :)

Screens nr 11-12 (the credits) and 13-15 are excellent, just top notch stuff - Amiga effects simply don't get better than this! Kiero and Chaser certainly have done a great job, but the one I'd like to mention here is Ubik, who put all of it together. This guy surely deserves some extra respect! :)
