EDITOR'S OPINIONIn the two Ocean-voiced CSI PC games, Catherine is voiced by her original on-camera actress Marg Helgenberger. Now Marg did a fantastic job playing the character on the show for many years, so she should understand the character more than almost anyone else, but somehow, this doesn't seem to translate exceptionally well to the VO world. I don't know if it's because of VO inexperience or just that she only did the game because she was contractually obligated to, but she just sounds off here, like she's rushing her lines. She's not terrible, per se, but she leaves something to be desired.
For the four CSI games developed by Telltale, Marg was replaced by Edie Mirman. Now Edie doesn't really have a perfect impression of Marg (her delivery is slower and her voice is noticeably lower pitched), but she still does a very good job of capturing the character's personality, pulling off both her serious and snarky moments well.
In the end, Marg is the only live-action Catherine, but for voice, Edie wins it for me.
