If he looks, he's a horrible transition from Japanese to American when designed by an American developer. Why did they have to change his design up so dramatically? He looks more cartoon than anime. Eh, whatever.

I dunno, all I know is that I hate his new design. Maybe I just play AE1 too much though.

I actually like his newer design over his old one, and I'm a big fan of the original game.

Something about dat hair.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

I like the hair, but everything else is meh. His eyes look odd, and jeans aren't Spike's thing :u
