EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright folks here is another Silent Hill VC and this time its for this Private Eye known as... DOUGLAS CARTLAND! Let us begin...
Richard Grosse- Richard's voice is kind of an iffy mixed bag, while there are certain times where he sounds pretty good but other times such as the "Sorry!" in this clip his voice sounds a little too strained and awkward. But Richard's performance was alright as he does play Douglas as an old Detective fairly well enough. So in other words this was a decent example of the voice work in the original version of the game.
Kirk Thornton- Now Kirk on the other hand his voice suited the gruff-middle aged detective just fine as it was consistently natural right from the start. Kirk's performance was also just fine as it suited how Douglas can go from a calm-mannered professional to someone who is trying to figure out whats going on just fine.
Overall I am clearly going with Kirk Thornton this time around as while Richard Grosse was okay but Kirk Thornton's take on the role was MUCH better.
