I hated the artwork form this period. Everyone had the same outrageous facial expressions. I also hated how Snake-Eyes was treated as such a superman. He storms off to fight Cobra Commander (who is wearing armor) and take him and about 20 armed Vipers down.

Snake Plissken, Solid Snake, Snake Eyes. At some point, every "snake" named commando has to sport 80's rocker hair.

More pressing question:
Why is that general guy portrayed by Moose from Archie comics?
And how did all these grizzled, gun toting, Liefeld-art era gorilla men end up in Riverdale?

I liked Phil Gossier's sense of movement in the last year of the book. His characters looked fluid and dynamic. One knock I always had on Rod Whigham was that his characters looked so stiff.
Gossier -- either intentionally or unintentionally-- mixed in some of the "Image cross-hatching" that was hot at the time. As evidenced by Hawk's face in that page scan. But I give him credit for drawing an absolutely ugly Snake-Eyes. Aside from Mike Vosburg's early shadowy rendering of Snake's face, nobody else drew an ugly Snake-Eyes.
There's also a Gossier pin-up in issue 152, where Snake-Eyes is straddling a gaggle of dead Vipers and he looks rather scary (the "30th anniversary" issue which featured a short story on Joe Colton).
As much as I liked MD Bright's work, he drew an unmasked Snake-Eyes, circa issue 107, as a guy with two stripes on his face. Had all the deformity of someone wearing camo face paint.

Thing is though, Snake-Eyes wasn't supposed to be this ugly by that timeframe. He'd had his face repaired and -somewhat- messed up again, but nowhere near as bad as his original scarring was. Prior to scarring, he was a pretty handsome guy...basically looked like Captain America (or Duke ironically enough).
Contrary to popular belief, that faceful of coal from the Paine Brothers didn't completely undo Snake-Eyes' plastic surgery.

But yeah, that was definitely underwhelming. Especially considering that prior to the reveal, all sorts of mystique had been built around his appearance... they've shown grown men averting their gaze, losing their lunches, or outright fleeing in terror from the sight of his ruined face in prior issues.
