    I still don't understand why we got Keith David for the game. Frank Welker yes, but David never had anything to do with TF.

    Frankly, I think I preferred Harnell when Barricade said "Are you ladiesman217?!" I Was liek 'holy shit' Barricade had me scared. I still loved the voice in the game, but Harnell's delivers that fear which decepticons are supposed to be known for.

    I have to agree, but I look at it more as the DS game at least, haven't played the others, is more of his cybertronian voice, but in english so you can understand it. I agree 100% that the terran movie voice was FAR superior and just very "oh god, I don't have clean underwear anymore."

    For the first time I believe we had black on black crime. When Barricade killed Jazz in the game

    Sure Keith David has an awesome voice, but damn I was surprised by Jess Harnell's version the first time I saw the movie.

    Oh by the way, I saw it again today in the cinema, and it f*cking rocked again!!!!!!!

    I prefer Keith David...and unlike you, I thought 'are you ladiesman217!?' sounded very funny to me because he spoke it so fast :D

    too bad we couldnt get a Thailog laugh outta him as Barricade. That laugh is so chilling. But it was even creepier when you heard first from Goliath in ''Enter MacBeth''

    In defense of Keith David, Harnell's Barricade sounded awfully synthed to me. "Are you user ladiesmn 217" was classic tho.

    I'd imagine Sam needed clean underwear after meeting Barricade in the movie. Keith might not have the same effect.

    I want to like David in the game, but he delivers the lines with NO emotion whatsoever. Harnell voice all the way.

    Keith David's voice is the awesome, no denying, but it doesn't really fit the character.

    Movie Barricade is a little too...enthusiastic to carry Keith's trademark voice.

    Game Barricade was very nicely done though.

    Harnell has my vote. Barricade in the game sounded more civilized and calm. The "Are you Ladiesman 217?!" part of the movie was superb. A real "dont bullshit with me" voice and tone.

    I preferred all the voices in the movie over the DS game voices.

    Seeing the film, I really didn't mind at all - but I love Keith David's voice. It's a real classic - just like James Earl Jones or Peter Cullen.

    Game Barricade comes across as having a high level of calm and Honor. A catch to using Keith's awesome voice.

    I prefer the pissed off movie version, if I had to choose.

    I think Jess Harnell did an amazing job. Just listen to him when Barricade was interrogating Sam. He sounds mean, dude!
