Look man, I didn't mean to come off sounding like a dick. Truth be told, I posted that reply before I had my morning coffee, and my daily caffeine withdrawals probably put me a little on the crankier side. I apologize if I offended you.

I'm not calling you a troll; but if you're not careful, you may come off looking like one. Here's the big reason why: The thread is off topic, and you keep comparing A:I to A:CM. Like I said, you're entitled to your opinion, but you can't say the voice acting in A:I is weak and in the same argument compare it to A:CM's voice acting and still sound credible. If you're going to compare the quality of A:I to something, pick a better quality game not an inferior one. Unfortunately, there isn't a better game in the alien series to compare A:I to. Your opinion might be that A:CM is better, but ultimately an opinion doesn't make for a good argument.

Soooo... How 'bout dem sales figures?! Not bad, eh?? Lol.


PS. While on the topic of voice acting, I know he's not part of the original 'alien cast,' but the voice acting for Waits was really good! (Same guy who played as Gorman, in 'aliens,' in case you didn't know; by the way, I'm really bad with actors' real names... Lol).

William Hope.  ;D

Curiously, I thought his performance was the only weak one.

I thought the film cast did a bang-on job. CelticPred, you didn't respond to my mention of their voices in the film itself. You may recall they sounded bored and tired there, too. It was part of the style.

And aging aside, stage/film acting and voice acting are vastly different processes. But I'm not making excuses for anybody there, because the fact is, they all rocked and it was a joy to hear them again.  8)

CelticPred is either a troll or that one lone reviewer who gave ACM a 9/10 days after release. SEGA totally paid that reviewer off. Had to be CelticPred.

Engineer -
I made one comparison to 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' and others argued about that game over 'Alien: Isolation'. I didn't intend for that to become central. Clearly others hate 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' more than they love 'Alien: Isolation'.

"Like I said, you're entitled to your opinion, but you can't say the voice acting in A:I is weak and in the same argument compare it to A:CM's voice acting and still sound credible."

- I didn't bring up the voice acting. You brought up the voice acting of 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' earlier in the discussion and I said in my next comment that I thought it was fine. Then later in the conversation I wrote my opinion on the 'Crew Expendable' DLC of 'Alien: Isolation', part of which involved its voice acting. Then user, Stemot said "You've just described Hick's voiceover work in Colonial Marines." and thus the topic came back to 'Aliens: Colonial Marines'. I'm the one defending it, but I'm not the one who keeps pulling 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' back into this.

"Your opinion might be that A:CM is better, but ultimately an opinion doesn't make for a good argument."

- And whenever I've said that I enjoy 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' more, I've not said that that is my argument for it. That is merely me stating my preference.


Mr Clemens -
Yeah I considered how they were in the film and I disagree with that view. There's no point in stating that any more though.

Yeah, William Hope's done a ton of Alien games. He's even provided vocal effects for the Predator in some of the AVP games.

Also in Isolation somewhere is Mac McDonald, who played Simpson, the Hadley's Hope administrator in the SE of Aliens.

I can only think of AvP 2010 and A:I. Am I missing some?

He was Groves in AVP2010 and Waits in A:I, and did vocals for the Predator in AVP1999, AVP2 and AVP2010, and also the Aliens in AVP2010.

At the risk of sounding like a hypocrit, in my opinion William hope did fine! Lol, jk

Yea, I knew William hope had work on at least one other AvP game, but isolation surprised me more because they also used his likeness!

I did NOT know Mac mcdonald was in isolation though. Do you know if they used his likeness too? I want to test myself, and see if I can figure out who he is... Lol

He's just listed under additional voices in the credits, so I don't think he plays anyone specific. I tried to keep an eye/ear open for him last time I played, but then I forgot because I was too busy being scared :P

Lol. Understandable. Now I'm going to be listening out for him, too!


I just saw on my Xbox dashboard alien isolation is on sale for 60% off... Maybe that'll boost overall sales?!? (But maybe not profitability)...
