You guys do realize that Ford's new voice actor is Duke Nukem? If I want cheesyness, I'll go play a Duke Nukem game (Duke Nukem 3D FTW). It's over the top fun that matches the cheesy lines. Doesn't seem to work well in this game.
Prometheus/Kevin Sorbo was the only voice I liked from the first game, but I don't mind his replacement; Sorbo wouldn't have mixed with this new Ford, they'd be two tough guys in constant conflict with no variety or balance between them.
While we're at it, the new Adams is decent, and about on par with the old one, to me anyway.
I actually find Ford's conception kind of ironic. like, didnt HVS try and make ford into the opposite of Duke Nukem for the first? Like more of an everyman rather than a larger-than-life superhero? now he has literally turned into duke nukem...
It's alright, not great. This "improvement" rather disappointed me. From the start of the The Conduit, I could tell that Mr. Ford's voice was a little boring, but now, this one is really cheesy. Maybe it's just the dialogue? Where is the middle point? Really, I'm used to it by now, but I wonder how come we can't just have a normal voice actor.
I made one huge mistake of hating a game because of absolutely atrocious voice actors (Baten Kaitos), and I regret that decision. So even if Michael Ford sounded like a frog shoved up a parrot's a**, I'd still buy Conduit 2. :P
