Treyarch voice Black Ops' Alex Mason to "create a connection"

Lead character Alex Mason in Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops was given a face and voice so the player can "relate to him" from the very first scenes.

This is a first for the Call of Duty series, to actually humanise the player avatar. We'll see "Mason's relationships" shift as we go "back and forth".

good i always feel it makes the game feel unrealistic when your character never speaks, ur doing all these badass things and your character never makes a peep. like in MW when the chopper goes down after the nuke hits, sure it was cool, but i really didn't care if my character died because he was mute and i wasn't given a chance by the developers to establish a connection with him. I could understand not seeing a face(Halo) but just like masterchief a voice is crucial.
