 Post subject: Sonic Colors Voice Acting
PostPosted: Fri Oct 29, '10, 9:20 pm 
Found this earlier today. It's a cutscene from Sonic Colors. It showcases Sonic and Tails's new voice actors, Roger Craig Smith and Kate Higgins respectively.

Personally, I HATE the new voices. Roger doesn't seem to have improved that much since the Alton Towers thing, and Tails has never had a perfect voice. Also, why did they have to get ANOTHER GIRL to voice him?

Hopefully Sega learns from this mistake and gets Ryan Drummond to voice Sonic again (I guess Jason Griffith would also work, but I preferred Ryan). I'm sorry if I sound way too harsh, but that's my opinion.

I would say whoever play Sonic voice will always be wrong. There's only one way to make a voice for Sonic...and its by being mute :)

Ok, I admit I did just play the role of the generic angry Sonic fan on the net. But really, I don't mind much about voice-acting in a Sonic game. It's more like "blah blah blah, finally an action stage :)"

That voice really doesn't sound like Sonic to me. It's missing something. I can't describe it very well, but it's just too different from the older voice work.

Tails, on the other hand, sounds okay to me.

I don't actually mind Sonic's voice too much. I never cared much for Sonic's talking, anyhow. Tails's voice actor, on the other hand, is a major improvement for me. I hated him in Sonic Adventure 2.

After listening to the voices again, I'm starting to like Tails's new voice, still don't like Sonic's that much. Guess it'll take some getting used to

Is Ted Poley still doing the songs in the game (if there are any) do you know?

I'm not sure about Ted. I do know that Cash Cash did the game's theme "Reach for the Stars".

Wait until their Tails re-design is released in the next Sonic game. He'll have rippling muscles and his tails will have gold bands on them. He'll be wearing sunglasses, and his voice will sound deep and masculine.

JL, I would die laughing if Sega actually did that, it would be EPIC.

Anyway, here are some more videos of the new voice acting. These are actually from Sonic Free Riders but we finally get to hear some of the other new voices like Shadow.

Just like Sonic, everyone else sounds ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. I can't believe that Sega couldn't get AT LEAST ONE voice correct. Eggman is the only exception, he is still being voiced by Mike Pollock, who does a very good job imo. Hopefully Sega doesn't decide to keep these VAs.

OK, here's what I think of each.

Agh, Knuckles's voice actor. I seriously loved his voice actor in SA1 and SA2, he was my favorite.

Amy and Cream, no notable difference.

Starting to really like Sonic's new voice.

Shadow sounds worse than in SA2, though I didn't like his voice much there either.

Rouge sounds better to me.

As for the characters who've appeared only in Sonic Riders, I really don't care. But those three all sound kind of annoying.
