How about critiquing something that isn't actually pixel art?
I recall in another thread someone mentioned the idea of critiquing bad pixel art, and what I have in mind is similar. I think we should critique a game taht uses pre-rendered 3D sprites instead of actual sprites or 3D graphics. I think it would be very interesting to see how well fake pixel art compares to true pixel art, especially in the eyes of the other pixel artists here.
I'm pretty sure Starcraft used this method, and also the Command and Conquer series, but I have in mind something more obscure. I present to you, Rockman Strategy
! The guy has almost all of the game's sprites ripped. Just click on the image of the character you want to see.
Of course, this game does it particularly badly, and a different game that does this might be more fun to critique.
