Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Borf with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Space Ace

Commander Borf is the main villain in the Space Ace game's storyline. Borf is an evil alien warlord whom wants to conquer Earth with his Infanto Ray that can de-age people so they will be younger and weaker (though the effects are inconsistent and unstable). However Borf is fully aware of how Ace is very much a threat to his plans so he kidnaps Kimberly to draw him out however Ace also ends up being the first known victim of Borf's Infanto Ray as he has a tendency to turn into his younger self Dexter. While Borf tends to rely on his Infanto Ray he is a capable fighter though with his electric Bo staff as Ace will find out later on in the game.

Today on the Space Ace VC section we take a look at the main villain of the series... BORF! Let us begin...

Don Bluth- To be honest I have some mixed feelings about Don's work on the role as Don's heavily altered voice for the role does sound very menacing that I will not deny. But while I know they were trying to make him sound demonic but his voice for the role sounds like it would more suit a evil robotic overlord though to be honest. But to be fair even though Borf had considerably less lines than the protagonists Don's performance does have a rather sinister feel (as I did like his evil laugh). But while I do think that the vocal effects for Don's voice for the role are a tad bit overdone Don's work as Borf is still a good example of the voice work in the game nevertheless.

Arthur Burghardt- Okay first of all yes Arthur maybe using his Destro voice for the role for the most part but I do think that it is a somewhat more natural fit for the role. However Arthur seems to be playing Borf as more of a arrogant royal dictator than a monstrous overlord but does it pretty well and it is a pretty good example of Arthur's work.

Overall I am actually not too sure who to pick this time as both Don and Arthur's work do have their pros and cons to consider here.

I picture Jim Cummings as a modern take on the character.
