    For those who don't know, Fred Tatasciore voiced Megatron in Transformers War for Cybertron, the DOTM game, and in all likelihood probably Fall of Cybertron.
    I haven't seen much talk about him around here, so I wanted to start a thread to see what people think of his voice acting.
    So I ask this question, what is your overall opinion on Fred's voice as Megatron in the latest Transformer games?

    Awful. It's a generic, growly mess of a voice and it's downright laughable how he always sounds like he's screaming.

    ^ I don't really think he sounds like he's always screaming.

    In terms of what I think of that particular Megatron voice? It's all right. Not really that memorable; typical "generic growly deep bad guy voice".

    HOWEVER, that is in no way to knock Fred's talent. I'm recent Fred-fanboy and his talent never fails to surprise me. The guy is an extremely gifted VA, I just think his WFC/DotM game/FOC (if he works on it) voice is generic due to the voice direction.

    EDIT: Also, easy reference for those who need a quick listen:

    Good. Just good.

    Awesome would be too far fetched.

    Best Megatron voice? David Kaye FTW.

    Pretty good I think. I really like the DOTM game voice, and thought he worked well with WFC's take on Megs.

    Meh to the tenth power.

    He does a mean Jeff Bridges impression, though.

    I thought it was a pretty awesome voice. Growly but intelligent and arrogant. And funny; Megs had some pretty dry wit in WFC.

    I Dont Like it. Even though he voiced by Solomon Grundy twice, I hate his portrayal.

    I quite like it though in my mind he wasn't the first guy I'd thought would make a great Megatron. He did a great job.

    Though I perfer how he did the Hugo Weaving esque Megatron for the DOTM game over what the WFC voice....

    I really liked it. It was a decent maniacal Megatron

    Thought he did good.

    Can't really say the same for Starscream's VA. That guy just wasn't hitting the right notes.

    I say good. The voice he has came up with is generic but his acting combined with a good script makes a pretty good Megatron and a much more believable leader than Prime Megatron.

    His speeches and views actually makes me believe people have rallied behind him. And his voice is quite fitting. I just don't think those speeches would have sounded so epic in any other Megatron voice.

    I think Fred Tatasciore does a fitting voice and performance for this Megatron which is one of my favorite incarnations of the character. And I could not imagine anyone else as him.

    I warmed up to it. It really fits his whole gladiator persona.

    Not much of an impression for me. Its a decent voice for a villain but its not menacing enough for me. E.g. Transformers: Prime Megatron.

    I think it was alright. I definitely prefer David Kaye though. Nobody does Megatron as good as he does.
