EDITOR'S OPINION

Tonight on the Tekken VC section we have this Australian Vale Tudo Brawler whom went from a Murderous Thug to someone whom is trying to be a more honorable fighter here is... CRAIG MARDUK! Craig made his debut in Tekken 4 in which he was voiced by English speaking VA in Japan, Walter Roberts. Well first things first unlike Tekken 5 and 6 Craig didn't say that much in 4 but it might feel a little stranger on how Craig had a substantially deeper voice but to be honest I am certainly not complaining. Granted Walter's performance does sound a bit more serious than the other two but all things considered it is understandable as Walter was able to make it work nevertheless. Its not perfect but I can certainly understand what Walter was trying to go with here and it works nevertheless.

However in Tekken 5 (and Tekken 6's Arcade Mode) singer and also English speaking VA in Japan Marcellus Nealy takes over the role. While Marcellus' Craig voice is a bit lighter than Walters' its by no means too light in general and I did like on how Marcellus' Craig voice is a bit gruffer though. Oh yes and as for Marcellus' performance its a bit of a mixed bag as his delivery can be a little iffy on Craig's more serious moments but to be fair not so much on his lighter moments though. Though in all fairness all things considered I have heard worst even in this game series.

Last and certainly not the least is in Tekken 6 where TJ Storm takes over the role here. Apparently Namco wanted TJ's performance to be like Marcellus' (and if that is not the case it seems like it). Does it work? I suppose so as TJ's voice and performance for the role is like Marcellus' (only with somewhat better acting). Granted its not one of TJ's better performances but its still a good one nevertheless and it still does work for the role as well. Overall none of these guys are perfect (and I also admit that while its not that big a deal I suppose it is a shame that none of them even bothered to do a Australian accent but maybe it is just me ) But still none of them are bad though in fact I would go with Walter Roberts and TJ Storm the most with Marcellus Nealy at a somewhat close second.

My question is...if Marduk is meant to be Australian...why has he always been voiced with an American accent?

@TaylorJosephB Same reason Nina and Anna have American accents despite being Irish.

Ok If I had to guess why TJ' Storm's two takes are seperate is because someone else was listed as voicing him in Tekken 6 before it was confirmed as TJ Storm voicing him in both games?

@Shaun Ince Yeah, blame me for blindly trusting IMDB when I first joined.

@NCZ Ah. I'm guessing this was the whole DiMaggio rumor that was circling around a few years ago got started. IMDB is pretty unreliable when it comes to voice credits.

@Shaun Ince Let's face it, John Dimaggio would still be a PERFECT choice for Marduk.

I love how TJ's votes are separate but either way I prefer him in Tekken 6 over Street Fighter X Tekken

I voted for Nealy, only because I feel his voice suited Marduk the most. But DiMaggio's acting is far better.
