EDITOR'S OPINION

While Ortega's attempt at an Hispanic accent is somewhat dodgy, it doesn't take away from the authoritative air in her performance. Glidewell, on top of not even bothering with the accent, doesn't sound very distinctive and seems wooden at parts. Livier's attempt at the accent might be more successful than Ortega's, but her nasally tone isn't very intimidating for a figure of authority. DeLisle not only gets the accent down but brings an abrasive element to the performance that suitably serves to make the character more ferocious. My vote's going with DeLisle here.

I didn't give this compare a very thorough assessment when I first joined the site, so I'm going to give my full opinion on each performance. I'm listing them from who I see as best to worst.

Roxana Ortega - Ever since I played the first game, this is closer to the kind of voice I prefer Carmelita to have. She's tough and no-nonsense with an accent that's not too pronounced, and a slight amount of sass. Her performance is kind of wooden and her accent was a little weak, but I feel she's the best fit overall.

Alesia Glidewell - I don't get why her performance turned out so lifeless, I seriously don't. There are times where certain words are elongated awkwardly or there are little pauses like it's her first take and she's still trying to memorize the script. It just sounds amateurish. It's weird that her performance as Carmelita was so bad, because her Neyla sounded noticeably better, IMO.

Grey DiLisle - For the most part, I had high hopes for her performance before playing the game, but when I finally did play it... good grief, half the time she was just so over-the-top and annoying I wanted to punch something. Instead of sounding no-nonsense, cool, and sassy, she sounded impetuous, obnoxious, unlikable, and her shrill shouting started to grate on my nerves like crazy. In my opinion they ruined her characterization in the game. I liked how her character was more prominent than in previous games and that she had more screen-time, but instead of being the cool, level-headed and sassy woman she was in the prior entries to the series, she was way too exuberant and angry to the point where she just sounded flat-out whiny and unlikable like a five year-old throwing a fit. Grey could have possibly been an excellent Carmelita had the character not been handled so awfully in this game, but because the writing for the character was so atrocious that possibility was squashed. Ugh... just listening to Grey's clip is making me cringe.

Ruth Livier - Honestly, I think her acting is pretty decent. It's kind of sassy, authoritative, and there's personality to it, but the accent is far too distracting and a couple of her lines sound flat.

So, after a good amount of thinking, I'm changing my vote from Grey DeLisle to Roxana Ortega.

I liked Roxana best, always wondered why they kept changing her actress when the other characters remained constant.

Alesia sounds more like a professional cop than the others so i'm going for her though I like Grey 2nd.

Roxana is ok though she's the 1st voice so she earns my respect.

Ruth on the other hand wasn't the best.

Love seeing this here, perfect chance for a comparison.
So the 4th Sly game's not out for a few more days here in Australia, but from what I've heard in this clip and in trailers DeLisle's voice is the best (even if the visual appearance for the character are bizarre).
1. DeLisle 2. Glidewell 3. Livier 4. Ortega
^Seriously, the accent thing, either get it perfect or don't even think about it.

Acting is one thing but honestly giving an accent to the character is a no brainer and in reality she's just an anthropomorphic fox who happens to have a Spanish name. Aleisha get points for originality and to me having the most enjoyable performance out of all 4. I do find it ironic that Hawaiians use Spanish saying like Aloha and she is a native of Hawaii and didn't do a Spanish accent though compared to the others though. However I still think it's the best.

@pete Or maybe it mentions in the character description that Inspector Carmelita Fox is a HISPANIC agent, so the accent completly fits.

As for the last part I have no idea what you meant (No offense intended.) :-]

@Torak I was tired when I posted and din't read properly. Anyway I think the fact a Spanish VA played her may have caused it. Anyway she is of Spanish decent but it doesn't mean she was born in Spain, Mexico, etc. unless the games say otherwise.

That being said Hawaiians say Spanish phrases like Aloha and she was born there so I think I find it ironic she's not using an accent as you'd think she'd learn in space where Spanish is spoken often.

1. Grey DeLisle: I'll vouch a little for CatsTuxedo here on the fact that Grey does certainly add a bit more ferocity and bite to Carmelita, on top of some great acting and a pasable voice; definatly the best actress in this VC and for Carmelita altogther! No surprise considering its Grey of course! xD

2. Roxana Ortega: Great performance, likewise with Grey I love the hispanic accent considering Carmelita is Hispanic, some good acting and has sense of authority too.

3. Alesia Glidewell: I really liked her Krystal, but she sound a little wooden, and generic here (Having no accent seems a little odd to me) but it does sound tough and authoritive too, still passable though.

4. Ruth Liver: She was ok, she has a decent accent and voice but lacks that authoritive tone and sounds a little forced at times: still not bad though.

I vote for Grey DeLisle because she is overall the best at the character so far, however, I highly prefer Roxana Ortega's voice. Yes, her accent wasn't that great, but Grey DeLisle's voice sounds more annoying and whiny than tough to me. I mainly thought she was written a little poorly in the game as well.

How is Glidewell winning? I thought that her acting in that game was not-so-great to say the least.

@solidejake Indeed, it is the most wooden and grating performance out of the entire series.

After hearing Grey DeLisle as Carmelita, I'm still sticking with Ortega. DeLisle and Livier's accent was too cheesy, and Glidewell's sounded bland. Ortega's had a Latina accent, but it came off naturally.

No doubt Ortega's voice was most authentic for Carmelita, but I'm still gonna say that my favorite was Glidewell's. Yes, she didn't give us fans the Hispanic accent, but she DID give us the voice of a tough female cop who is dedicated and persistent in her goals. On top of that, Glidewell managed to give Carmelita a voice that made her sexy as well as agressive; something that Sly himself would find absolutely irresistible! I absolutely loved it!
