    I saw the FOC Video game movie on U-tube. I got a chance to hear all the voice talent,see the story unfold & view the CGI designs.

    I Was impressed that the robot designs were bigger on the screen. The story was also better told.

    The international voices reminded me of the horror that was the year 2005 Cybertron cartoon series. Instead of hiring talented voice actors that can disguise their voice to sound decent & unique. Hasbro went the cheap-o & lazy route. by hiring cheap,Amateur voice talent that mocks international earth human countries voice accents.

    But what if some people enjoy not having the entire cast sounding North American?

    That's kinda racist man. Having different accents fits the characters well. If Jazz sounded like a WASP, he'd sound so forced. Yes, I know he's played by a white guy.

    "I hate how they're all speaking English, if they want to be accurate, they should be speaking Cybertronian!"

    It gives them range*.

    *As much range you can get with 40% of the voice cast sounding "gruff".

    Dude, the accents are pretty perfect in this game. Perceptor's accent is badass, Swoops's accent is hilarious, and Jazz is Jazz.

    Are you honestly whining about how you wish everyone in the game sounded American? What's wrong with you?

    Variety is a good thing. It would be pretty dull if every robot had the same accent. I mean, Perceptor's character was very well portrayed as was Swoop's and Jazz's they were all handled very well.

    Having different accents makes each robot unique along with the personallity and robot and vehicle modes.

    Everyone in the game should sound like Microsoft Sam.

    Come on now, High Moon.

    seriously? i think i would forever hate highmoon if all the voices were the same, ironhide speaking without a southern accent wouldnt sound like ironhide to me, same with perceptor and jazz, also i found that the accents in cybertron were pretty fun, mudflaps was kinda annoying, but besides that the voices really helped distinguish the characters, it even made some of them more likeable to me, like thundercracker for example. and wouldnt having a wide range of voices be good voice acting?

    Have you played the game?
    The voice talent is perfect.

    Hasbro didn't make the game.
    Activision publishes it.

    All the voices are perfect and very accurate to G1, which is what they are going for. Not every transformer had an American accent
    Perceptor and jazz were just amazing. The only voice I wasn't keen on was shockwaves
