Reborn reskins have never been my favorite. I know a lot of people like 'em. In fact, I think I'll go a little easier on Reborns now after someone made an interesting point about them. I was talking to a friend about what his new personal skin was going to be and he said he was going back to a Reborn. Before I could argue, really (yes, I'm predictable), he jumped in and defended the Reborn, saying that no other skin really has that Jedi feel to it. The hood, the flap, the overall look. I have to agree with him. So from now on, I will go easier on Reborns, in general. Except the really bad reskins. So ... anyway ... onto the actual review.
This is a new Reborn for JA. WaR_ShArK_aX thought that this is how they should look. As always, I like anything with a chrome effect on it. And the author claims this is his first time to play around with shaders. I have to agree with the author, that it turned out quite nicely. :) I also have to agree that the blue version is a little funky. The red looks great, but the blue looks muted and just, kinda washed out, y'know? Once again, WaR_ShArK_aX uses the white, glowing, blinking eyes for this skin. I say that there are new sounds, but they're all from the game, so they're not really new. And again, no bot support for this skin. Well, now I'm not sure which Reborn I like better - or rather, which I like least ... hehe. They seem very different from each other, so it's hard to compare. In any case, I like this reskin, it's simple and clean. Though, I wouldn't use this skin myself.
Bot Support: No Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Yes

Version: 2.0 Author: WaR_ShArK_aX Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org Based on the New_Reborn model by RavenSoft Description: Basic reskin of the New Reborn model. In my opinion this is how the New Reborn SHOULD look (or something close to it at least). Team support and edited sounds. Also, this is my first attempt to work with shaders and I think it turned out quite nicely (although the blue version is a little funky) ================================================================ Software used: Adobe PhotoShop Winzip Installation instrucions: Extract (Unzip) to your JA Base folder.
