    After listening to Shockwave a little more, Blum's voice sounds cool as it usually does, but it still really doesn't sound like Shockwave.

    They really should of had Blum as Starscream's VA in this.

    Is it bad that I got more hook with Optimus in this then I do with the TFP series?

    That's because Optimus is a developed character in this series. Optimus Prime's development in TF Prime is just he's Optimus Prime. I find his Prime incarnation to be one of the worst Optimus Primes due to him being so default and one dimensional.

    This x 1,000,000

    I absolutely DETEST Sam Reigel as Starscream in these games, makes me cringe every time I have the misfortune of hearing him.
    Richard Simmons would of made a better Starscream than Reigel.

    He isn't the best voice actor in terms of realism, but I think his voice fits Starscream. Not annoyingly screechy, not deep either.

    Yeah, shame he got pretty much everything else wrong.
    He just sounds like a REALLY bad Saturday cartoon villian, not intimidating or interesting at all.
    I just... really hate it, Steve Blum's Starscream wipes the floor with him.

    I actually have to agree here. There is the cheesy lines Starscream has fits with how the VA is portraying him. It just works.

    I also enjoyed the hell out of Troy Baker's Jazz and Dave Boat's Vortex.

    I agree on everything here.
    Especially Jazz. I like, don't like Jazz, but love him. I don't know how I feel about him, but I love to listen to him.
    It seems that the only VAs who know how to act are Cullen, Baker, Tatasciore and Singleton.

    I wish Wheeljack was voiced by Grant Goodeve, or any voice actor for that matter.

    Oh, and Snarl's voice gives him super strength.

    While playing through FOC you can't help but hear the many "various voices" characters as you progress through the game. One voice that stood out the most for me is Troy Baker's generic Decepticon, the one that sounds like he cares about nothing--the only thing on his mind is the job he's tasked with. Why didn't HMS use THIS voice for SHOCKWAVE?! It isn't Corey Burton, but that voice is sooooooooo much better than Steve Blum's Shockwave:(

    they were all fantastic. but if i had to pick, it'd either be Onslaught, Megatron, or Starscream's actors. with Jazz's in a close second

    who did Sludge's?

    Swoop's the only one bothering me (Blumwave aside). Why is he New York?

    Sadly, I can't say the same--I like accents; they give characters character and give us a lot of variety among them. Jazz and Iron Hide would be lost without them.

    That said, I don't particularly like the one given to Swoop either. It's better than stupid Swoop, but not what I expected. Giving new voices to old characters that were made to be stupid has got to be tough--we all can agree on what Optimus, Jazz, Starscream, Soundwave should sound like, but surely we'll disagreements on what sort of voice matches this or that Dinobot. I wish Swoop didn't sound like the youngest one more than anything:/

    :lol  i couldn't help but mock him when he said "snipers" with a new yorker accent. but i have to agree with Transformed. it does give them character and it's better than all of them having deep, grumbly voices
