GreyFuss, have you tried the European version of keepsake? The 'American Lydia' grated on my nerves as well, the British was much better for me.

The Beast Within was very funny for me - all the supposedly German characters speaking grammatically wrong German with such a thick American accent!! lol

European version? I didn't know there were two English versions. I wonder if there is someplace to hear a demo of a British voice.

Thanks I'll have to check that out.

smile While I have long considered Syberia a fine game, the kid named "Momo" (Spelling?) was awful. I've even wondered if all the other characters didn't sound pretty good simply because he was pretty bad.

Momo didn't bother me. I used to work with People with Autism and other developmental disabilities and Momo was pretty high functioning!

Hi smile

Whilst I didn't "hate" the voice of Gabriel in GK2, I WAS terribly disappointed that it wasn't the lush, over the top tones of the delightful Mr. Curry cry

[Still trying to make my mind up about the worst voices I've ever heard - but the Watchmaker is looming large wink ]

Cheers.

Not the same actress at all. The voice actress in Beyond Atlantis 2 is actually a fairly well known actress, at least in Europe, Chiara Mastroianni. Nico in BS3 was voiced by Sarah Crook.

The worst I've heard was in Watchmaker and in Jazz and Faust. Other games may have corny cartoony accents or weird foreign accents or annoying voices, but for just plain flat out bad voice acting, nothing beats Watchmaker and Jazz and Faust (especially the ship captain Faust).

Greyfuss, I agree with you. She drove me nuts, too. An uninspiring acting job.

Worst voice has got to be Lydia in Keepsake. Voice acting in Watchmaker is really annoying too.

GreyFuss,

Try this site - European Keepsake info.

Now, I'm not sure if they removed the European demo or not.
