Not a big one, just an issue I have wit the British voice overs. I recall a sneak peak at an old pre-release video and ppl commenting on how corney the Brit voice over was and someone saying it was just voice-overs that already existed with BF2 or summin like that... And now, its the very same voice-overs being used. Basic fact is, some of the voice overs (a few) sound right, but the choice of words doesn't make it seem as though they relate to an active battle Some, are just too passive or Quintissencial Brit to be considered well acted or spoken under stress conditions.... And almost all, especially by regualr infantry and captains is too Well spoken for regular grunts, you'd expect a more lower class accent and not the Queen's English that exists - Any exlanation or summin that can be done about it.. Just a tip, recall the COD2 voicer overs for the Tommies? Also, can the AT guns buck slightly when fired, can that be added to their firing animation in 3rd person view (A 'gun jump')?

I've said before, I would genuinely be happy to record voice commands for FH2 if they sent me a list of what was necessary - I have access to a studio. I do agree the voices aren't great, but I'm hoping they'll improve next patch.

I think the voices are great. At least the Brits, I don't know German well enough to know exactly what is being said, but they are very high quality IMO.

You've said that before? I must have missed that, but that sounds great! :D

The British voices are from the BF2 Special Forces add-on. I agree however.

I'm not sure in what way we're meant to recall the CoD British voices. IMO (as a Engish person who has lived in Britain all his life) they were horrible. The lines are awfully stereotypical and are obviously spoken by people who are not British - they have "foreign" ways of pronouncing the subtleties of English.

The current FH2 British voices suck. I don't feel immersed, because they are not expressions from ww2, but from modern warfare.

If you are ever planning on having recordings collected/submitted, please give me a nudge. I think I may be able to convince some charismatic brit voices to do this :)

Maybe month or 2 month long event, detailing what classes of voices are needed, lines and what amount of duress they are to be acted out on? Instructions on granting rights on the material etc.

What about other theaters? Surely there is need to get some other languages spoken too? (I find this rather interesting subject)

I can vouch that Meadow is obscencely British sounding.
