Top 10 hilariously bad voice overs in Video Games

Games have featured voice over acting for decades. As such, we take a look at the most hilariously bad voce overs in games.

Observer: System Redux Review – Dystopian Murder Mystery

Observer: System Redux is a decent game. The combined Bladerunner and Lovecraftian elements will have any fan of the giddy thanks to its incredible implementation. While a few elements personally irked, the overall experience is wonderful. Dialogue and world-building expertly craft a narrative experience that is perfect for murder mystery games like this. The game has heavy Myst and/or Egypt vibes in its execution and should be perfect for anyone who is a fan of classic point and click adventures. The attention to detail in this game is particularly incredible. While it is no masterpiece, the fact that it is one of Rutger Hauer’s final works only adds to his legacy. It is most certainly worth a play.

Here are four Immortals Fenyx rising tips that every player should take note of before embarking on their adventure!

Immortals Fenyx Rising Review – Ashes of Greatness

Immortals Fenyx Rising is an incredible title. While the aesthetic might not be for everyone and its open-world nature will eventually become repetitive, the game is so chock-full of optional content and beautiful vistas that this eventuality will take a long time to reach. The story is wonderfully narrated and crafted to work incredibly well with the graphical design of the game too. Better still, the humorous approach to ancient Greek mythology alongside the bold and colourful aesthetic; all wonderfully complement each other in ways that only Legend of Zelda games have been capable of in the past. It is rare for any company, let alone Ubisoft, to bring out a brand-new Intellectual Property and for it to reign supreme right from the start. However, Immortal Fenyx Rising certainly manages this seemingly impossible feat with aplomb. Fenyx is a relatable character, and the incredible narration between Zeus and Prometheus are wonderfully nostalgic for any lover of Saturday Morning Cartoons. Playing on the new consoles certainly helps to make loading into the game as convenient as possible, while the gameplay itself constantly makes players want to come back for more. Immortals Fenyx Rising is very near perfect, and ticks all the right boxes for a game that is gorgeous, enjoyable, addictive and highly entertaining.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered Review – Spectacular Times Two!

Marvel's Spider-Man was a marvel to look at and play, and deserves to be experienced first-hand by pretty much anyone who calls themselves a gamer. From an outstanding roster of villains, to a beautiful set of supporting characters, and an engaging story; the game outshines almost all superhero games before it, and its remastered variant, equally as much.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Review – Next Gen Wall Crawler

While it feels way less polished than the 2018 base game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is still a must-play for any Spider-Man fan. I do think the theme with Miles Morales is “short” or “quick”. There are motifs of shorter, more condensed experiences strewn throughout the entire game: from its skill trees, and Miles’ suits, gadgets, and modifications, through to the short but sweet six-hour campaign, and around four extra hours of side content and collectables. It does feel like Miles Morales was meant as a proper expansion meant to release alongside Marvel’s Spider-Man, but it got cut halfway into development, and Insomniac decided to fix it up as a Sony launch title instead. The experience is just so short that I cannot fathom why they would release this as a standalone game at all. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered further cements my chaos theories about the game. Regardless of the conspiracies in my head, however, I cannot fault the game for what it is: a solid single-player experience cutting the ribbon for all future PlayStation 5 titles. It is a great game.

Astro’s Playroom Review – Tactile Classic

Astro's Playroom is a wonderful first romp into everything seemingly possible with the PlayStation 5. Serving as both a technological showcase of the system as well as a beautiful and nostalgic trip down memory lane for the PlayStation brand; it is clear the game was created with passion. Although it might completely skimp on narrative, it more than makes up for it in the sheer amount of unique gameplay to show-off the Dual Sense and the wondrous sense of luring players to discover and explore the vivid and delightful worlds on offer. In many ways, it feels like a product of a bygone era. A piece of software specifically built to showcase new hardware. However, this beautiful bundling of software and hardware to offer an experience unavailable on any other platform is ultimately what makes the game so incredible good, and why it will be remembered as a 'must play' title for years to come.
