EDITOR'S OPINIONIn the original 2000 television series, Jacob Vargas voices Berto. Jacob's voice is a nice blend of having a natural sounding accent, while also giving Berto some innocence to his voice. After all, he's not really a field op - he's "the guy in the chair". My biggest gripe with Jacob doesn't even have to do with his voice or performance, but rather the writing. The rapport between Christian/Matt as Max and Jacob as Berto was really well done. They wanted to drive home the strong relationship between he and Max, which is almost like brothers. What better way to do that than have them affectionately refer to each as "Bro" and "Hermano"? Over. And over. And over again. They do it a lot, bro. Like, an unnecessary amount, hermano.
David Michie filled in for the Covert Missions video game. His voice is a little higher than Jacob's, I find, but all-in-all, a suitable replacement for the video game.
After the 2000 series finished, the franchise continued going strong with several direct-to-video movies recorded in the Vancouver area. Alessandro Juliani was tapped to voice N-Tek's Spanish staffmember. Alessandro does his own thing while also being able to sound not-too-different from Jacob's performance.
Sam Vincent voiced Berto in the media for the 2013 reboot series. Sam puts on a convincing Spanish accent, but the problem is that I don't hear Berto Martinez, I just hear Sam Vincent with a Spanish accent. A good voice and a good performance, but the SAM just pierces through it.
Overall, all four of these actors do a fantastic job, so I'm not really sure who to vote for.
