Not happy, but I will judge by what I hear. I am wondering if he will still do the same voice style as the original Snake. I think if he starts speaking normally then it will ruin immersion completely but we will have to see.

I've never thought much of Kiefer Sutherland, he just has 2 voices - confused or angry. OK for 24 where all he has to do is run around shouting "damn it", not so much for a video game where his character will be having lots of long, earnest conversations.

The way the timeline has jumped it would be about the time that Solid Snake and Big Boss were in the same timeline. So having David Hayter talk to himself in long dialogue would be a bit...meh. So hopefully it just means Hayter takes in the Solid Snake role while Big Boss is KS.

And then... there are some rumors around the web that Kiefer Sutherland won't be Solid Snake in MGS5. It says that Kojima is just trolling. It remains to be seen if the rumors are true or not.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
