"Out of all the Silent Hill games that Konami released, none was more memorable than the second game. Being the game where Pyramid Head debuted and many other classics, how does the updated version fare?" - JPS
Pathetic this new voices, SHM..... -_____-
Troy Baker is a much better James Sunderland than the original.
i think im blind but for a moment i though the one in the pic was leon from resident evil...
XD Well James does have a Leon-esque look about him just no combat expertise and a ton more stress.....
It was the 90s. Everyone had the Leon Hair. :D
Likewise. Just played through RE4 so maybe its still on my mind though.
Fuck the voices, what happened to the music?! (When James is talking about the letter)
IDK. I've heard some people say they think the new voices sound more professional...but it doesn't sound that way to me? They sound too breathy and monotone, and the original Mary was far better and more emotion-filled, imo. (I can't imagine Maria with a different voice tbh. I thought she was FANTASTIC in the original).
They definitely do sound more professional. I'm sure I'll get some more "disagrees" for this comment, but I don't understand the infatuation with James' old voice. I mean, sure, Mary's old voice was great, but James? Really? He sounded extremely amateur and unintentionally funny.
That's true. But I think it sorta works in a way. The original had his corny moments, but he still sounded like a regular guy in a shitty situation. This new guy sounds too...I don't know how to put it...He sounds like a voice actor playing a character. If that makes any sense? Like, he doesn't sound like a regular guy. He sounds like a voice actor PLAYING a regular guy. And it doesn't really work imo. He doesn't sound very shocked or surprised that he got a letter from his dead wife. The other guy might not have been as professional, but in the first scene I really believed his emotions. I really believed that he wanted to find Mary. The new guy just sounds "meh" about it. I don't know...maybe I'm jsut used to the original voice actors because they're the ones I grew up with. But these ones don't sounds as good or professional as I was expecting. Especially considering all the drama that surrounded it.
I just got the game today and I'm loving it all over again! =D
