Barack Obama. The most important politician in a generation. A peerless orator. Winner of a historic election. And exceedingly effin' hard to recreate in every create-a-character mode we could find. You’d think the current leader of the free world’s unassuming features would be easy to make with the plethora of chin, forehead and septum sliders most games now have. Wrong.
Honestly, we thought making Mr O would be a breeze, but not only did we fail to craft convincing Obamas, we failed to craft convincing humans. So, which character creator makes the best Obama? We have no idea. Take a look at the following and see if you can decide.
Obama rating - 6/10
The WWE interpretation of the 44th President is probably the most lifelike. If by ‘lifelike’ you mean bearing a passing resemblance to the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We suppose the jawline and sympathetic peepers are quite similar.
The Presidential verdict - "I figure there's nowhere to go from here but down."
Keep scrolling through these attempted Obamas and you’ll see how true that is.
Obama rating - 5/10
Far too evil-looking and weapon-wielding for the most beloved President since David Palmer.
The Presidential verdict – "If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, tonight is your answer."
All things are definitely possible if an unrecognisable, brooding man with a murderous look in his eye and a big-assed sword can govern the most powerful nation on Earth.
Obama rating - 5/10
We know Obama enjoys a good workout and is in tip-top shape, but this approximation just looks like there's nothing between his ears but straw.
The Presidential verdict - "I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father Jor-El to save the Planet Earth."
Rugged, chiselled and with a punch that can shatter a man’s face in, Facebreaker’s Obama should be wearing a red and blue cape as he fights evil Republicans.
Obama rating - 4/10
The nuclear fallout clearly hasn't been too kind to Barack, ageing him terribly and giving him the kind of dead, hopeless eyes that Presidents should only get in the final months of their second term.
The Presidential verdict - "Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and terrible storms devastate our lands."
If this is what a post-apocalyptic world would transform every 47 year old man’s face into, then file stopping Fallout III from becoming a reality under ‘good’.
