Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Zeus with sound clips and images.
Franchise: God of War

Zeus is the King of the Gods and the creator of the Blade of Olympus as well as the god of sky and thunder. Zeus is the youngest son of Cronos, his two older siblings being Poseidon and Hades. Due to his erotic escapades, Zeus himself is the father of numerous characters, including Ares, Athena, Hercules and Kratos (the main character of the series). After Pandora's Box is opened, Zeus is consumed by paranoia and acts as an antagonistic force for much of the series. Zeus is voiced by Paul Eiding in the first God of War game and by Corey Burton in all subsequent appearances.

Honestly I feel that both sound absolutely amazing and powerful as Zeus. I suppose Corey Burton has a slight edge here, however I would say this is a tie for me.

Corey Burton did a terrific job, his voice is the same as he used for Disney Zeus but this time he got an evil twist, which make everything even cooler.

Easily going with Corey Burton. He just has so much presence in the role. His performance perfectly suits a vengeful god who also happens to be the most powerful of them all.

I find it funny that Corey's Christopher Lee voices usually sounds better when he's not directly imitating him. This is definitely one of his best roles.

I've never played God of War before... but dang, this is the coolest I've ever heard Corey sound before! That being said, Paul Eiding sounds pretty good for a more "gentle mentor god" type of character, whereas Corey sounds a lot more wrathful and angry. Still, Corey definitely has an unbeatable, undeniable presence with as the character and it stand out to me a lot more than Paul's. Definitely going with Corey... dang he sounds awesome.

Corey Burton is at his best when he evokes Christopher Lee. He does so in this role, so he definitely deserves my vote.
