Don't get me wrong; I think the voice acting sounds awful across the board - just like all the other Square Enix games. (not including ones they only published, like Dues Ex) But Barrets voice is laughably bad because of how stereotypical it is, and how it doesn't match his character.
I don't know who consists of Square Enix's localization department for when they hire voice talent for English speaking actors, but they all need to be fired.
Square Enix is a AAA studio with a AAA budget - we deserve better than "mediocre".
Nobody can tell me with a straight face
Did you like play the original and read Barret's dialog? The dude has the persona of Mr. T. You know who is Mr. T is right?
Anyways I'm telling you with a straight face, the VO sounds on point. It's anime'ish, FF7 is anime'ish one just have to look at Cloud's hair. I'm not saying your opinion is wrong, but it is seriously misguided. As bad as IGN "Too much water" misguided.Last edited by deskpro2k3 - on 10 May 2019
