The original voice actor couldnt be there to do motion capture so they got someone else to do the motion capture/voice, they wanted to do what Naughty Dog does and capture them at the same time.
I dont like the new voice.

Yeah the new vioce sucks. Did they do motion capture on the 1st one? I did notice the second one is alot smoother and faster/responsive...he can jump alot further now to.
Oh and im glad they didnt change the button layout like they did the god of wars.

first thing I noticed was coles voice. Its not as rugged and makes cole sound more cocky which I sort of dont care for but whatever I'm freakin stoked for this game and cant wait to get it on the 8th (yes sadly i must wait a day)

I too, am not a huge fan of the new voice. Could you imagine if they went with the first revision of Cole's character model? The voice just wouldn't fit.

I am in complete agreement, the new VA sounds like a inexperienced young adult instead of the matured and confident bada*s Cole that we knew from Infamous. Was a huge mistake to change VA's, IMO its just as bad as replacing a character in a sitcom.
But seeing as how the game is so dang fun, I can live with the new voice, but it's just not quite the same. It would have felt right if this new Cole in I2 was younger than the Cole in Infamous, but seeing as this game is the chronological successor to Infamous, the younger sounding voice is off-putting.

Agree 100%. still a great game but it does take you out of the game....untill you get used to it.
Also does anyone else think the story line for Infamous is kind of dumb. I love the gameplay....its a fun game to play. its grand theft auto without the guns and direspecting women and cursing. But they made it fun. I during the first one i would skip all the dumb audio logs and movies if they let me.....i just didnt care for the story. But the game rocks.

Hmm... I guess I'm different. I was indifferent on the switch when I first heard about it, but I never really was a fan of the original Cole's voice. The first thing that went through my mind was that he sound like an old man that gargled with gravel. I didn't exactly hate it... but I didn't love it. The new VA though... he's alright to me. Not really in love with the voice but I like what he did with Cole. How is personality is opening up a bit more I feel that it works best with how Cole is now.
