  • Sounded great to me. It may have been the highlight of the voice acting talent after Dominic and Earl Boen.

  • His voice was perfect...His arms...Just looked odd when they were animated..One looked like it was sticking out from the center of his chest...o_O

    ... Good old Stan!

  • Good voice for Stan in MI3, not a good Stan voice for the originals.

    Well. I got used to it and eventually enjoyed it. But it was jarring.

  • I think the voice fit perfectly. And the arm animations are basically the same as the original. He was whacked out in the original game. It looks like they used same amount of frames to animate his arms.

    yay someone agrees with me
    haha

    Is it the same voice actor?

    Or different?

  • Also consider this that when writing the script in today's games, the voice actor will together with the sound crew change written lines that don't seem to work alright when reading them out loud. All the text in the special edition were the same as in the original game, a game where all the text was just supposed to be read. What I'm saying is that the lines may not be perfect for voiceovers. I also remember someone else mention that it might sound strange because they had to match the length of their recording to how long the text was displayed in the original game.

    I also noticed he wasn't as good as usual, but IMO it was due to the fact that the script wasn't as well thought out as in for example MI3.

    It is indeed the same voice actor who played Stan in Curse of Monkey Island. LucasArts got back all the voice actors they could from MI3 and 4 who played the characters (the only one they couldn't get was Carla), but if there was a different voice for each game they sided with the COMI version - that's Elaine and Stan. Shame, as I think I prefer the Escape versions. I still love the ones there, though, and I think they work fine here... although Stan's not quick enough.

  • I see Stan (meaning Pat the actor) doing much more dynamic voice! He should be annoying, not slick and smooth... Or maybe a balance between those.
    It was really cool, he did a great job considering the circumstances... But I'd really like to hear him speak as if he's in a hurry!
    It would be much more amazing...
    And "Howdy!" should be much more... ALIVE!! As in... HOWDYYY! Happy-like!
