Damn taffers, want to replace our "hero" with some younger action hero type voice actor. I want Russel back, the one that defined the character, without him, we might as well replace Garret all together and change the title of the game as well.
I don't understand why this even had to be Garrett. They are clearly rebooting it for people with no attachment to the original trilogy. They could have easily avoided angering existing fans by doing something like passing the torch to a new character (say, the girl at the end of Deadly Shadows).
theres no way in hell that i would refuse to buy a game ive been waiting 10 years for over the voice actor, but it sure does irritate me. russell IS garrett. they only call it a reboot to justify the change. it doesnt take inside knowledge to see that the game wont be incredibly different from its predecessors. its not like it will be totally different like the new tomb raider was. its biggest difference is the voice acting. they shouldve renamed the character if they were using a different voice. i wouldve preferred that over changing garrett.
