oh my god Larian what have you done to the death knight voice? Im not very picky when it comes to game voices but this is simply unbearable, its the dumbest voice ever, i tried to put up with it but i couldnt, had to turn the voices off from the options, also the music gets tiresome, the demo was much better why did you have to change it?

Seriously, it can't be as bad as you claim it is... I have yet to get game, but from what I heard the new voices were an improvement. Everything is subjective I suppose...

You're talking about the demo voices. They were redone in the full game because manny gamers felt the same way you did. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Last I heard was that the voices are top quality now.

Did I say the demo voices were bad, Barta? Nope. So stop replying to something I didn't say <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />.

I said the full version voices are supposed to be an improvement. There's a difference.

Ok let me try make things more clear.
First things first, i just bought the retail game from eb today so it is the full version im talking about NOT the demo.
second i bought the game the day it came out, why? because i was a huge fan of divine divinity and no im NOT a complainer.
I been playing games for many years and honestly its the first time ever i had to turn off the voices, the death knight voice is making my ears bleed and i never had any complaint about any other voice overs in other games, im not very picky when it comes to voices in games.
I liked the voices in the demo.
Its true that everything is a matter of taste but honestly when it comes to the death knight voice in this game....it is disgusting and it goes beyond just a matter of taste

You'll nevertheless forgive me if I want to wait and decide for myself rather than take your word for it? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I just picked up the Full version of the game and I didn't think the voices are all that bad. Very playable IMO.. I'm having a great time playing so far, just got It about an hour ago. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beyond.gif" alt="" />

It is indeed a subjective matter. I find the DK's voice much better in the full game than in the demo. Actually, I find most of the voices done pretty well.

IMO, the DK voice is much better although still a fair way from "great". The other voices are generally very good.

@ Kay

As you i liked the demo Deathknight voice because it was neutral.
Now i am scared to be disappointed but i will wait to have the full version of the game to get my own opinion.

I did not say :

This was just a small misunderstanding. Most of the time i have the same opinion than you

I have played the demo of BD and I own the full version of Aquanox. Having played both I can asure you that Aquanox is FAR worse. The voice acting is simply so awful for the English version of the game, that with no option to turn it off I simply cant bring myself to play it. Trust me, if you pay postage and packaging Ill mail you Aquanox. You'll be begging for the Deathknight voice after a few missions of that game <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

The voices in the demo were preety bad on occasions, but I wouldnt go as far as to say its the worse voice acting in a game, I mean take a look at resident evil 1 "DONT Open...that....DOOR"

I've heard word voices - German Intro of "Crusaders of Might & Magic" is my "worst favourite". Skeletions that should've been frightened but instead sound like Teenies. Bah ! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
