Default Jim isn't Jim anymore....

You guys have probably seen the new screenshots of Jim right? The pic where it shows the side of his face and nose just doesn't look at all like the old Jim's nose.... Jim's new face, long hair, and attitude..... I just can't see the old Jim that I used to. Not to mention that its a different voice actor as well. I am personally just kind of choked that Jim is so different, go back to the briefings in the old missions and compare Jim then to the Jim now...

I agree. How many years passed in Starcraft universe ? Four right... how the hell does one person change it's face, attitude, voice so much in so little time ?

How will Blizzard explain this, will they even care ?

I trust Blizz on this one... we don't know quite enough about the Terran campaign to go nuts about this just yet.

who cares? blizzard has artistic license to do whatever they want with the character if they feel it's an improvement. his personality is meant to have changed...as for his appearance and voice, unless you're suggesting they're an intrinsic part of his character, i don't think it matters if they're different.

To me, it reminds me of Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII, then Advent Children. Here's a point of reference for those unfamilar with his look.

Game
Movie

You can ultimately chalk Raynor's new character to three things.

1 - New technology. Better graphics, better story-telling devices, etc, will allow the characters to be much more vivid.
2 - Passage of time. It's been four years, Raynor has been cut down at every turn by Mengsk and Kerrigan, he's seen his friends and comrades become his enemies, and those that didn't betray him are dead or vanished to who-knows-where. Who wouldn't start drinking?
3 - Artistic License. Blizzard is going to change characters, like it or not. This current Raynor is actually closer to his original concept art, which is nice.

I personally like Raynor's new look, and his voice is fine to me, it's not what I recall but it's not like it's going to ruin the game for me.

Lol, I think Cloud looks the same.

As for Raynor, I don't really mind. I think he looks more interesting this way honestly.

I really think a whole bunch of awkwardness could have been avoided by making the game set 10 years after Broodwar instead of 4.

There may have been a specific reason its set only 4 years after BW.

Here's a quick rundown of images for comparison. Portrait, SC1 Concept, SC2 Concept, SC2 Single Player (x2).

Like drake said he got back stab by kerrigan & mengsk & he lost fenix one of his closest friends, it's easy to see why he became like that. Although he's a sober now it'll be interesting to see him getting his true self back in SC2 if the story line's going to be like that.

Cloud's just like him in advent children, except he still keeps his appearance fancy lol

His face looks very wide in the last screenshot, but in the previous one, i think it's probably ok. I don't imagined him with that many muscle, but we only seen his face until now, anyways.

The single player screenshots actually look quite a bit like the SC1 concept art, I hadn't noticed that till now.

You also have to remember they had limited technology back then so they couldn't translate the concept art into a model as well as they can now.

I actually like the re-design (if it even can be called that), it shows that Jim's been through a lot and just how weary and embittered he's at the present moment. And to me it still feels very much like the same character, regardless of cosmetic changes.

Those screenshots are damn impressive by the way, especially the reflection on the bottle and the close-up of Jim's face (which practically gives you the illusion of seeing every hair). In fact, I can't recall any recent (or upcoming) game where the human face was done that well.
