I love how Dave Wittenberg put a little bit of a Mark Hamill's Joker impression into his performance as Kefka in the first game, but in this game, as can be heard in the clip, he put ALOT MORE of it into the voice and performance. And there's totally nothing wrong with that!

I kind of missed Gregg Berger. It's nice to know that an old school Transformers VA got a role in FF~

Also, I think my favorite voice in this entire game is Kain's. Seriously, Liam sounds awesome in this role.

There are actors in California, Texas, and New York? How did Square Enix manage to do that?

@MrParadox well it seems that some
People in Japan were working for square were big fans of full Metal alchemist and since kenji utsumi was the voice of Alex Armstrong Christopher Sabat was brought in for the role of garland

....The cast is a good cast, but I'm sorry, a lot of the delivery from these people are just so bland, and it annoys me because they have no right to be!

Sephiroth speaks a bit like captain Kirk, Cloud sounds like an emo git, Yuna's lifeless... ok, actors JYB is awesome, Liam OBrien is awesome, Laura Bailey and especially Keith David and Anthony Landor are incredible, but they know how to direct themselves as much be directed. Some are good, the rest (and sadly in my op the majority) are just bland.

I think it needs a serious overhaul.

@Aussieroth I think it's mostly direction. The voice director for Dissidia and the other spinoffs (Bob Buchholz) isn't the same as the director for the main series games (Jack Fletcher). I noticed that Lightning and Yuna in particular sound a lot huskier and less emotive than they do in their original games. You do have to admit that the acting this time around is much better than the first Dissidia.

@Aussieroth For the record, I thought the voice acting was quite solid overall, though I found a few characters did sound a bit flat like you mentioned (Vaan could've been more expressive, though his battle clips were much better). There were some truly great performances, like Laguna, Kain, Kefka, and The Emperor, to name a few.

@NCZ I dunno dude, the more I listen to them (except a few like Keith David) I'm always aware that I'm hearing someone behind a microphone. Though I think the director's more to blame than anyone else.

@NCZ The voice direction in both games is average at most. Some voices and performances (notably Kefka, Kuja, and Cosmos) are noticeably improved in the second game, most others are about just the same as they were in the first, and in the odd cases of Cloud and Gabranth, they sound WORSE than they did in the first one!

@Aussieroth Bub Bucholz's direction is totally to blame for this. The cast is near perfect with the exceptions of Ultimecia and Cid's voice actors, who are just awful and miscast. Everyone else have perfect fit voices but inconsistent performances.

I'd actually say Yuna was more Shatner like than Sephiroth here. At least Sephiroth's odd speaking could be excused by the fact that he's inhuman. Yuna has no such excuse, and we know from X-2 and KHII that Hedy Burress can do better.

@Galactic_Cyrus Eh, Gabranth I can forgive because they didn't give him much to do in the new story scenes, although the complete change in his accent was jarring. I will agree that the voice acting in Dissidia isn't as strong as the main FF games.

@NCZ Gabranth is forgivable but still just...not the same. Upon close inspection, I think George Newbern as Sephiroth sounded a little out of practice here when compared to his performance in the original Dissidia (which sounded almost exactly like his Advent Children one)...but it's still only *a little bit*, so I can still bear it.

Cloud, however...just awful. In the first one, he sound great with his battle lines and in his own story (including his final showdown with Sephiroth in Shade Impulse), but sounded stiff and emotionless everywhere else. In this one, only his battle lines are good. He sounds like he did everywhere else in the first game taken up to eleven. An example of how more consistent voice direction can sometimes be a bad thing.

The Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy series truly has one of the greatest voice casts ever assembled for a video game series without a doubt.
