VGC: "We wanted to create the action hero that we all want to be. So we looked at all the heroes that we all thought were cool. There is definitely a bit of Indiana Jones in him. There's a lot of John McClane from Die Hard in his character. We did not want him to be broody and miserable. He's got a very serious problem here, his vengeance story, but we didn't want him to be miserable the whole game, so he's kind of funny and he'll make little wise cracks sometimes when he's kicking ass." says Lead Designer, Tom French.
