Personally I feel nobody 100% got Barricade down. Barricade should have a smooth yet gruff type of voice.

Steve Blum is sort of the closest to what I imagine for the role.

Jess Harnell is enjoyable but honestly he kinda just sounds like a generic monster, I do like him asking "Are You Ladiesman217". that gets me every time.

Keith David has an epic voice but I don't think his voice needed to be as low as that, his Tombstone is actually closer to how I feel he should have played him.

The UVA is pretty good honestly.

Frank Welker and Bronco Jackson are really generic monsters and nothing else.

I guess I'll go with Steve Blum even if he does play him as a grunt.

BONUS: My ideal voice for Barricade would be Keith Silverstein, he'd have the gruff yet smooth voice of Blum with the cool factor of Keith David. When I first heard his Yusuke Amade in Sailor Moon, I immediately thought yup that's my ideal Barricade voice right there. Brian Drummond would also be excellent too.

As much as I like Keith David normally, I'm going with Jess Harnell. Keith just doesn't sound quite the same to me, he sounds more like Dave Fennoy or someone else. It's not bad, but I expected something different I guess.

I was really excited when I heard that Keith was voicing Barricade, but it turned out that he wasn't in the movie. With what little he had to say I can understand why they didn't hire him and just used Jess, though.

@Polyester Funk Personally, I prefer Jess for Barricade. He definitely sounds terrifying.

I think they should've saved Keith for a more important Transformers villain, like Scourge.

1) Blum
2) David
3) Welker
4) Harnell

Keith gers my vote as he makes Barricade sound calm & collective but still very evil with that deep voice.

Jess is 2nd. He's threatening though he shouts his lines a bit too fast at times. I'm surprised he didn't reprise the role in the game.

Bronco is 3rd as he also delivers a dark, threatening performance but not as good.

Steve & the Unknown Voice Actor are average.

I can't make out what Frank's saying. Not to mention Barricade wasn't in the movie very long. In fact, what scene is he in as I can never find him?

@Ross123 Frank-as-Barricade is in the final act, the battle of Chicago. The Autobots are taken prisoner. Probably 2 hours ish into the movie, give or take.

I prefer Keith here, because he sounds more like what I imagine Barricade sounding like in the first place: cold, stern, and in control. Steve would probably be my 2nd choice. Sorry I didn't choose you Jess, but at least you fall right into 3rd.

1. David
2. Blum
3. Harnell

5. Welker

Gonna go with Jess Harnell but I also like Bronco Jackson and the Unknown VA. I usually love Keith's David's work but this isn't one of his best roles IMO. I'm not sure if people are voting for him because of the performance or just because it's Keith David,

@pete Keith kinda sounds like he has a cold

@Music Meister He either lowered his voice or it was altered by the developers. Ironically he sounds like KMR a bit who is known for impersonating him. He just sounds too light compared to his other roles.

@pete He does somewhat sound like KMR but he still just sounds stuffy to me.

Gonna go with Keith David for Barricade, though I also thought that Steven Blum and Jess Harnell did a good job.

When an actor in a movie doesn't play the role in a video game they usually hire a cheap substitute. Here they hired someone who is possibly more well know than the normal actor, it's a funny ol' world.

@Nightmare Crusher Funny thing is, Keith David actually was going to voice Barricade in the movie, but they used Jess Harnell instead. It probably happened late in production, which would explain why they got Keith for the game.

Now, let's stop for a moment and think how awesome it would be to hear Keith David scream "ARE YOU USERNAME LADIESMAN217!?"

@NCZ If Prime wasn't sadly being cancelled and Barricade appeared and Keith reprised the role but sounded like his usual deep voice instead of what he sounds like here he should say that to Jack.
