I quote JEDIofONE's review of the previous version:
This is re-skin of the in-game Kyle model. Boko gives us another variation of the dark-clothed Kyle. He's sporting black body armor with gold accents, and corresponding color coordination for the team skins.
Generally, each time I've seen this done with Kyle, it always seems to be lacking something. With this skin, however, it is IMHO the definitive Dark Kyle. The gold on the belt and shoulder pad seems to be that final touch needed, combined with the musculature of the armoring. My only complaint is that the level of detail and sharpness on the accessories, head, and hands is in contrast with the softer tones of the outfit. Perhaps toning down the detail would fix that, because adding more detail to the body would make it too busy and no longer KISS-ed. The biggest issue with this skin are the team versions. They appear to me to be following a more animated/cartoonish styling, and have very little realism or texturing comparatively. I would still however suggest using this skin to replace any other Dark Kyles you have, or snagging it to add to your collection.
This version is definetly a step up from the original version. It sports a shiny new shader, some updated textures, and the team colors are presented in a much better way (rather than the whole skin becoming a tint of red/blue, only the gold bands on the shoulder turn to red/blue). This skin comes fully loaded with Bot Support, NPC Support, Team Colors (as mentioned above), Single Player Support, and last but not least, a .pk3 that replaces the old, boring, default Kyle in JA to this Dark Kyle! :D This skin has a permanent place in my Base folder.
Bottom line: A big step up from the original. If you're looking for a change from that boring old Kyle, pick this up NOW. Bot Support: Yes NPC Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes SP Support: Yes Replaceing the old Kyle: Hell yes New Sounds: No (Where would he get them? lol)
