Kyle Hebert has also announced on his website that he voices Big the Cat in the game, but oddly he’s not in the credits.

If you picked up the new Kinect controller for Xbox 360, there’s a new Sonic the Hedgehog game out now called “Free Riders”. I voice the non-playable character, Big the Cat. I’m very excited to be added to this popular franchise!

Big thanks for all this go to BoyleVoices or SonicBoom771 as he goes by in the Sonic community.

  1. The part where Sonic was falling down with Metal Sonic was epic. Why did the player keep getting ready to boost and then stopping? xD

  2. I’m glad they’ve put effort into Colours but the acting/direction in Riders is awful. I actually thought the 4kids crew did better.

  3. …Hot damn, talk about some accredited backgrounds in voice acting!

    The game might not take off so well, but at least there’s some vivacity in character portrayal.

  4. I just checked on the Sonic Wiki and it says this is who voiced who. (exept for Sonic, Tails and Eggman, we already know who voices them)
    Kate Higgins: Wave
    Travis Willingham: Knuckles and Storm
    Cindy Robinson: Amy
    Michelle Ruff: Cream
    Wally Wingert: Vector
    Kirk Thornton: Shadow
    Karan Strassman: Rouge
    Michael Yurchack: Jet

  5. Ready? Ready? Ready? Ready? Ready? YEAH!!! Ready? Ready? Ready? YEAH!!
    Man that gets annoying xD

    Feels like Sonic Heroes all over again 😛

    Except with Boards instead of Tri-teams.

    READY!?

  6. Glad to know that with new VAs, Sonic and his fuzzy friends are still as dumb as a brick.

    What? No winner Omochao? I believe Robotnik is the clear winner because he hoodwinked you all, duh.

  7. ReadyreadyreareareareadyreadyreadyreadyreadyreadyGUH-YEAH! *shot*

    Anyway, I can’t say I’m impressed with how, err, “simple” the game is. This game is the very definition of “can’t be arsed”. “Free” is such a dull song as well.

    Ah well, “Roll On Sonic Colours” and all that.

  8. The last race with Metal Sonic reminds me ever so much of the race between them at Stardust Speedway…but this time with boards!

  9. READY?
    I Would Get This If It was For The Wii Aswell im not buying kinect just to play this.
    READY?

  10. Kirk Thornton’s got quite a history behind him.

    Nice to see that Sega is using more experienced VA’s now.

  11. OMG! Saix is te same VA of Shadow, very cool =O

    All the new voices are su much better, but not Amt she estill anoyinh :S

    BTW..Ready!

  12. It’s strange to hear so many voices from Digimon in the sonic cast now. My two favorite franchises have crossed, yet it doesn’t please me. :/

  13. If I get this game, I’m going to do a drinking game everytime Sonic says Ready. But I do like Shadow’s voice. Jet, voice sond like someone other character but I can’t put my finger on it.

  14. whee, saix shadow? He, to, knows to injure a heart I guess>_> It’s like stealing candy from a baby, not that he used to have a problem with that.

  15. I like the idea of the throwback to Sonic CD there… but overall that was a rather dissappointing ending.

    Sonic Riders 1: A power-hungry genie procedes to attempt and kill our heroes while they’re locked inside the digital dimension, stuggling to escape with the treasure, if not just their lives.

    Sonic Riders 2: A corrupt robot stumbles upon the five mystic meteor shards and combines their energy, forming a collosal black hole that threatens Sonic and co, not to mention brings the danger of obliteration to the entire planet. Our heroes rush inside to end this madness before it’s too late.

    This: Uh-oh! It looks like Metal Sonic has challenged Sonic to a race! (Procedes to rip off Sonic Battle and Sonic Heroes, without the danger.)

  16. Oh crap! BoyleVoices!? He voices Eggman Nega in Sonic United for my friend! =D Go BV!

    Also, what’s with the “Ready” over and over!? XD

    Sonic Heroes Riders! =D Awesome!

    The voices are growing on me. I’m DEFINATELY USED TO ROGER NOW. ^^

    AWESOME theme. C=

  17. Ironic… the fans wanted a simple light-hearted story and they got it. They wanted Sonic Heroes 2 and they got it. OMG SEGA. SA3 WILL COME somehow? XD LOL jk

  18. Roger Craig Smith – Sonic
    Kate Higgins – Tails, Wave
    Mike Pollock – Dr. Eggman
    Kirk Thornton – Shadow
    Wally Wingert – Vector, E-10000
    Cindy Robinson – Rouge
    Karen Strassman – Amy
    Michelle Ruff – Cream
    Mike Mycheck – Jet
    Kent Hampton – Knuckles, Storm

  19. Wally Wingert? Is it just me or did he do one of the voices of the Tallest from Invader Zim?
    Anyway, I’m really liking these actors, they have great talent 🙂

  20. BoyleVoices said to do this recording he had to take the game into a small room where he didn’t have much space between himself and Kinect, so Kinect was confused and kept thinking he was readying a boost. That’s why you see Sonic’s foot keep attempting the first motions of a kick boost and why he keeps saying “Ready?”.

  21. @Shadzter

    Ah, I KNEW it was just caused by failed boost attempts (well, in this case I mean “attempt” as in by Sonic, not the player)

  22. Um… If this is purely for kinect, i can’t use it. The music seems to make me dance instead of steer, which can be a lill’ problematic.

  23. There’s a typo. “…going to kill our rep as rouges.” Last I checked, rogues was not spelled rouges. “Roo-gez” are not “Rohgz”.

  24. @BlueChoas

    Wally Wingert was the voice of one of the Tallest, he was Almighty Tallest Red.

    I’m liking the new voices, Shadow needs to speak slightly quicker, the long pauses are too distracting, but I like them.

    But the game does look like shit, but like anyone is shocked by that. And these “cutscenes” are worse than the ones in Secret Rings. Remember when Sega said they were treating Free Riders like a proper 360 title? I look forward to seeing cutscenes like that in the next HD Sonic game.

    “Free” is kinda sweet, suprised that Jun Senoue wrote the music for it.

  25. GRAGH! Gee, am I the only one here hthet thinks evey voice other than wave sounds like it came from Cartoon Network!? These are terrible! Tails’ voice is acceptable as it does remind me of the “Sonic the Movie” voice actor, but hey, I’ll be repremanded anyway.

  26. Rouge’s new voice [DELETED]. Good God THAT is a huge fucking improvement over the previous voice. Haters gonna hate, but I like ’em all.

    Nice to still have the best fucking Robotnik voice actor still around with us on the games!

    Shadzter edit: Please keep sexual language out of the comments.

  27. I’ll say it,even with a new voice,omochao*never did like him :/* is still annoying…

    Ready ready ready ready,yeah!! XD

  28. Yeah, I havn’t unlocked Silver or Blaze, yet…do they have like, re-used clips, or new voices?

  29. My opinions:

    Sonic – BETTER. So much better. I never like Griffith’s Sonic voice.
    Tails – I like it a lot. I also liked Amy Palant but Kate Higgins is a lot better.
    Knuckles – Dan Green with better acting, and sounds younger. Pretty nice.

    Shadow – Kirk is using the wrong voice. He’s using his Kisame voice rather than his Saix voice. The Saix voice would’ve fit Shadow better.
    Rouge – Words can not describe what an improvement this is…

    Amy – Minnie the Hedgehog… enough said. It fits somehow though…
    Cream – Better. Rebecca Honig was WAY too forced.
    Vector – Still sounds dumb, but a lot better than Carter Cathcart and Dan Green

    Jet – PRAISE THE HEAVENS MY EARS ARE SAVED!!!!! Griffith made me want to take a cheese grater to my ears…
    Wave – I liked Bella, but I love Kate.
    Storm – Less tough, more dumb. It fits I guess.

    I’m waiting to hear the rest of the voices for Blaze, Silver, and whoever else is in the game.

  30. I forgot to mention…. this is like Rouge’s, Shadow’s and Cream’s first time being part of a story in the Riders series, right?

    Who else? besides Vector and Metal?

    Now we need to figure out how Silver and Blaze would fit in.

  31. Sorry for the comment spam but the song that was provided for download has a really bad bass in it ><;

    Those with sensitive ears need to beware.

    No worries, I'll fix it myself 🙂

  32. @ Shadzter:
    Well what do you know there is no E-10000B. It was Metal Sonic all along! I have no idea that would happen.

    @Anybody
    Is E-10000B playable in free race?
    Since E-10000G is credited as E-10000 in free race, can you choose his color?
    Another video shows multiple colors of E-10000 robots.
    Who are the unlockable characters?
    I believe they’re;
    Silver
    Blaze
    E-10000G
    Eggman
    Metal Sonic

  33. READY!?

    Okay, although I likely won’t be buying this (unless ported to Wii/PS3 at $30) I think the music is fantastic… at least in the level above racing against Metal Sonic. To be honest, That’s the first song I’ve liked from the game so far… The “In the wind” theme is pretty bad I think. In fact the first Sonic Riders had my favourite tracks. Sonic looks and sounds good at a rave… Not a common bar.

    Also, the gameplay looks fairly good. I like the voice acting but I did prefer the animated cutscenes, however awkward. Despite my general approval of the game. I WISH Sonic and the other “speed” characters would DITCH the hoverboards… I mean, they obviously don’t need them at all. WTF

    PS: Buy Sonic Colours instead if you’re on the fence of decision! 😉

  34. Wow, All the voices sounded great except Sonic’s and Shadow’s. For some reason, as soon as Shadow started talking, the image of a disgusting toilet came into my head. I like that Vector is in it, but I am not so sure how much i like him with Team Rose. I thought maybe he was just being nice to Cream so he could get with her mom. Anyway, the “ready” thing is a tad disappointing that they would let that slide. Don’t they have any quality assurance?

  35. Just looked up Kirk Thornton. I have to say, even though I haven’t heard the voice, I’m pleased with the actor. Not only is he highly respected (it said he has the most credits for a male voice actor aside from one person), but I’ve heard his voice before. Shikaku from Naruto, anyone? XD

    You know, I might just consider getting this game now…I’ve been hearing positive reports on Kinect, I’m getting a new 360 which supports it in December…So yeah. And no, I’m not just getting it because I like Shadow (I’m NOT a rabid fan girl. I don’t freak out if his voice is a little different…If it was like, super squeaky I’d have something to say about it XD). Who knows? Looking like a total idiot playing the game might be a lot of fun! 🙂

  36. @Keybearer
    Srsly!!!! Awesome!!!!
    I wasn’t expecting that!
    Shadow and Saix have the same voice?
    0_o

  37. @Grassy: “I’m pleased with the actor. Not only is he highly respected (it said he has the most credits for a male voice actor aside from one person), but I’ve heard his voice before.”

    Here’s an interesting question: If the entire cast were, instead, people you’ve never heard – because this was their first role – but the results were practically the same, would you have been pleased?

  38. @Grassy, in Naruto he’s also Kisame of the Akatsuki.

    At the same time, Roger Craig Smith is Deidara of the Akatsuki, Kate Higgins is Sakura Haruno, Travis Willingtom is Zetsu of the Aktsuki and Jugo of Hebi/Taka (the team Sasuke forms).

    Yeah, before the voices could relate to Chaotix, YuGiOh, Pokemon and such cuz of the voice company over them. This time Sonic has similarities with DBZ, Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto and Bleach as well as numerous other video games.

  39. I like Silver and Blaze’s new voices.

    @Karto: I doubt it (even though I don’t know who you’re referring to). Crispin Freeman (who voiced Thomas In Data Squad) knew about the cast change, but didn’t audition because he’s an asshole.

  40. @zackbonder
    Haha lol. My thoughts exactly XD

    Anyways Silver sounds WAAAAAAY better now!! I loathed his voice before, but now it’s actually tolerable. Blaze also sounds good. She sounded good before and still sounds good now. In fact I’d say she sounds even better now. She has the sophistication of a princess (of fire).

  41. well at least omochao sounds less annoying than previous times.

    Omochao: “I was holding my breath from start to finish…”

    gee since when did robots started breathing?

  42. I liked Silver and Blaze’s previous voices better. Silver sounds kinda cheap and off and Blaze sounds like Rouge’s first voice a little. XD

    But their voices are REALLY identical to their previous voices and both this version and the previous version (of both characters) were really neutral and casual sooo I DO like them. Meh, yeah I like them! They sound the same. XD

  43. I like Silver and Blaze’s new voices, they aren’t too different, nor worse than before. Other than the fact they didn’t have enough time to give it cg cut scenes if they wanted to release this as a Kinect launch title, there’s one thing that bothers me as much as Amy’s new voice does; does anyone feel that final race was the least epic final race out of the whole riders trilogy!? I mean seriously, the first one was a godlike genie, the second one was a gravity/dimension shifter, and this one is just plain Metal Sonic. Not to mention the ending was lame, heck it was worse than the ending to Sonic & the Secret Rings! And yes that’s a bad thing. either way I’m glad the game looks fun, and that it even impressed IGN.

  44. Well, silvers voice does sounds nice, but theres something similar to it as a previous voicer of a character voiced him? Blaze sounds very different, at the beginning she sounded completely the same (The first clip) but then I found that she sounds different. But the voices aren’t bad. Need to get used to Blazes less serious talk 😛

  45. Wonder who is going to do the new voices for Espio and Charmy…whenever they appear again.

  46. OH THANK YOU GREAT LORD! THANK YOU FOR MAKING SILVER LESS ANNOYING! HE IS NOW MY 3RD FAVORITE CHARACTER!

  47. So far im not happy with what i hear of the new voice actors, they all sound like Fan-made fakes, like there a bunch Fans from online trying to sound as the originals, with the exceptions of roger and Tails being the only 2 that don’t seem fan like. because when i heard the voice clips i had huge trouble picturing the characters and know who was actually speaking :/

    that’s the thing with Voice acting, the sounding and acting portrayal is very important, at least with the 4kids (despite how awful they acted/sounded) u could actually picture some of the cast, like Lisa Ortiz as Amy i could actually visualise Amy speaking when i heard her voice.

    I had no idea Wally Wingert (who i know him as Rusty Pete from ratchet & clank a crack future series) would voice in a sonic game lol. im guessing he was jet?

    I think ill stick with the Japan options as usual.

  48. @SK72: So far im not happy with what i hear of the new voice actors, they all sound like Fan-made fakes, like there a bunch Fans from online trying to sound as the originals, with the exceptions of roger and Tails being the only 2 that don’t seem fan like. because when i heard the voice clips i had huge trouble picturing the characters and know who was actually speaking :/”

    Even Knuckles? I mean, Knuckles is pretty obvious and he sounds just like his 4Kids actor. It’s hard to tell who is who when I’m listening to Amy and Cream new voices but everybody else is easy to tell apart.

  49. People really need to relize how bad Sega screwed up when the replaced the original cast.
    This issue was almost non existent before they replaced them.

  50. @Aquaslash
    can you tell me who the starting characters are.
    can u pick multiple E-10000 colors?

  51. Sorry I’m still not used to the chages now 🙁

    Dont like them prefer the old ones but we’ll see how it goes

  52. FOR GODS SAKE WHY SEGA WHY CHANGE

    ITS NOT FAIR SOME PREVIOUS VOICE ACTORS NEVER GOT TO PLAY THEIR CHARACTERS MUCH (ONLY IN `1 OR 2 GAMES OR JUST SONIC X)

    AND BRING BACK RYAN OR JASON ALREADY I THINK ROGER WILL BE WORSE THAN MARTIN BURKE!

    HEEEEEEY GUUUYYS WAZZZ UPPP – ROLLERCOASTER VOICE

    AND THEIR WAS NO POINT IN FIRING DAN GREEN GRRRRR PLEASE SEGA YOU CLAIM TO LISTEN TO YOUR FANS

    SILVER NOW SOUNDS WEIRD AND DAMP

    AND BLAZE DOESN’T SOUND SERIOUS ANYMORE

    JET SOUNDS MORE SQUEAKY , WAVE LESS SERIOUS, STORM WELL OKAY I GUESS

    SHADOW- IS ACTUALLY OKAY BUT GRIFFITH OWNS HIM

    TAILS- WELL OKAY I GUESS….NOT AS GOOD AS AMY

    AMY – WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HER SHE SOUNDS MORE ANNOYING AND MORE SQUEAKIER LIKE CREAM’S OLD VOICES BRING BACK LISA ORITZ

    CREAM – NEEDS HER OLD VOICE BACK

    VECTOR IS JUST TERRIBLE

    PLEASE SEGA YOU CLAIM YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO YOUR FANS!

  53. C.J stop typing in all caps. It doesn’t help bring out your point. Alot of Sonic fans don’t even like the 4Kids cast and would rather have the Sonic Adventure cast back but I don’t have a problem with the new cast. These actors are more talented then the 4Kids actors.

  54. @SonicFan1984

    No your wrong half of the fans like them and the other amount of fans dont

    ITS MY OPINION IF YOU DONT LIKE IT RESPECT IT PLEASE

    NOT EVERYBODY LIKED THE ADVENTURE CAST EITHER WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT

  55. Couldn’t Omega be in the story with Shadow and Rouge (Team Dark)

    Instead of the Green Robot (Who appeared in the first Riders)?

  56. @C.J
    I don’t care that you like the 4kids actors but I don’t like how you’re acting like you’re speaking for everyone else. I loved the Adventure cast for example and was pretty pissed off when Sega fired the Adventure cast out of nowhere and adopted the 4Kids cast from the Sonic X series. But I sucked it up and got used to them just like I’m doing right now.

  57. Well I found it opposite five years ago and still finding it hard ATM RESPECT PLEASE!!!!

    AND IM NOT SPEAKING FOR EVERYONE IM SPEAKING FOR THE FANS WHO LIKED THE 4KIDS CAST AND STUCK BY THEM ALL THE WAY.

  58. Okay, I can respect your opinion. Chill. -.-
    If you liked the 4Kids cast since the beginning then I guess it would be hard to adjust to the new changes.

  59. wait ,if theyve bothered giving new vioces to blaze and silver does that mean silver will once again grace the 360 without narm? then dare i say it RETURN THE WEREHOG!?

  60. @Truesonic

    UGH I HAVE A FEELING IM GONNA HATE OMEGA’S NEW VOICE!!!!! BUT I DONT THINK HES APPAEARING IN THIS GAME

  61. I didn’t like the 4Kids voices at first but I got used to them. I didn’t over react and threw a huge temper tantrum or done anything crazy like boycotting the games until Sega gets the old actor back or anything like that.

  62. @C.J

    Shame they could have put him in Multiplayer mode

    If their still looking for a new V/A

    thye should of Used Maddie Blaustien’s lines from the game SAMATWOG instead oof not bothering to put him

  63. Geez CJ, stop talking all caps its annoying and makes you come across as rude.

    Anyway thanks for all the people involved with bringing us these vids! I am really enjoying this new cast, except for a few voices (Amy/Vector). Thanks 🙂

  64. @Truesonic

    Omega was replaced probably because 1: His body shape doesn’t support riding a hoverboard and thus would right a bike but is uncompatable with that as well while the E10000 robots are made to ride boards. In fact, besides Storm, I think he’s the only one who rides a board who is big.

    Also, it’s E-10000 Blue, not Green. Green is just the extra robot available. (I think they did that so you could still play the robot despite the fact that the blue one is actually Metal Sonic)

    The reason the robot was there was to be a spy for Eggman. Omega is Eggman’s enemy.

    I think that finding a new Omega voice shouldn’t be hard. The effects pretty much do it anyways. XD

  65. @Foxboy

    I understand now thank you but I always thought they could remodle him a bit he could transform lighter and thinner and then turn back to normal but yeah that wouldn’t work LOL XD

    Oh and one other thing I’ve never understood this “Sonic Cycle” thing…..wasn’t it the reviews and public’s jokes about Sonic 06? after its release

    To me there was never a Sonic Cycle they were just spin offs that could have improved Have you guys actually thought about it?

    Some had good stories but difficult gameplay

    I DON’T THINK THERE EVER HAS BEEN A SONIC CYCLE , NO SUCH OF THING OF IT.

  66. I like Silver’s new voice a lot. It keeps the tone, but sounds less… nerdy. As for Blaze, Hudson was fine, but this new ones sounds a bit younger and edgier.

  67. I’m very mixed with the new VAs.
    Most of them are ok, but nothing that makes me scream spectacular. Shadow is my biggest complaint so far, he sounds like his VA is trying to hard, it just seems off >.> Though I find Griffith was begining to lose his touch with Shadow after Black Knight and sasasr (got too rough sounding) so I guess it’ll be tolerable…
    Everyone else is either fine, or too similar to the previous VAs to really judge differently.

  68. Well, if you were to read a comment not made by you, and it had all caps, how would you read it? Calm, or kinda yelling? Most people look at words or sentences with all caps on, as yelling. SEE IT NOW?

  69. @C.J
    So, you don’t get it, okay. But just saying, people take it yelling, which is how it seems rude. So, i suggest, unless your caps-lock button is stuck, don’t use all caps.

  70. Blaze sounds more suave, regal and calm.. while Silver sounds almost the same, but a less annoying pitch.. I approve them both.

  71. @C.J
    Granted, I know you can’t actually ‘yell’ while typing. But usually when people try to get a point across, which is usually by yelling, they use all caps. So, basically we know you can’t actually ‘yell’, but it comes across like you mean it to sound like you are yelling.

  72. @CJ
    Please stop typing in all capitals. As others have stated, it comes across rude and like you’re shouting, even if you don’t intend to.

  73. Overall, I’m pleased with the majority of the new cast.

    The only one I’m not too fond of is Amy. She’s got the acting part right, but her voice doesn’t really make her sound like she’s 12. Hopefully, she’ll get better as the sereis goes on.

  74. Wow the new cast sound really great – all very suiting to what they look like. A few are a little weird only cause i’m so used to the original cast by now. Love Rouge =P So glad she’s getting some spotlight.

    Bit dissapointed that this is how the story is, in presentation and writing. I know it’s meant to just be a bit of a sidetrack when playing the Grand Prix, but it’s so worthless it might as well not be there. I don’t know why they didn’t just use cutscenes like they usually do, it’s just boring to watch to be honest!

    Shame that this new cast are probably gonna get dissed as this just seems to be full of corny lines and boring writing. I’d really like to see them attempt something really well written, they’ve got such great, diverse characters. I’m sure something really good could be made. Still, lovely cast though. =]

  75. …pointless to try and explain to him now…but anywho. I’m pleased with the new VAs as well. Only one I have a slight problem with is Amy, but i’ll get used to it.

  76. CAN EVERYBODY PLEASE STOP RESPONDING TO CJ? THAT GUY IS BEING A FIRST CLASS ASS ON PURPOSE! HE’S TOTALLY TROLLIN’! (P.S. THESE CAPS MEAN I’M YELLING!)

  77. @C.J
    I asked you politely and gave you the reasons why, but since you refuse to stop, then I’m giving you a warning. Stop typing in all capitals or you’ll be banned from commenting in future.

  78. LOOK MY KEYBOARD ISN’T WORKING PROPERLY AT THE MOMENT SO COULD WE STOP WITH THE ABUSE PLEASE I CANT TURN THEM OFF RIGHT NOW IN FUTURE COULD PEOPLE BE NICE AT FIRST INSTEAD OF IMMEADITLEY GOING HEAD TO HEAD

    @SHADZTER

    I KNOW I SHOULD HAVE SAID THIS EARLIER BUT SORRY I CANT FIX THIS PROBLEM AT THE MOMENT MY KEYBOARD IS ACTING FUNNY IM NOT YELLING OR RANTING :/ JUST BECAUSE YOUR ON CAPS DOESN’T MEAN YOUR NECCESRIALLY YELLING ALL THE TIME.

  79. I like everyone except for Amy and Storm now. Blaze and Silver don’t sound very different and that’s a pretty good thing!

  80. @ C.J.
    As I explained, we don’t usually allow it, but it’s ok then if your keyboard isn’t working right now. No-one was throwing abuse at you. We all just thought you were typing in caps unnecessarily and didn’t know your keyboard isn’t working right now.

  81. By the way, is it true that Laura Bailey is the voice actor for Blaze? I know she’s Omochao because I can easily hear Raspberyl, Evangeline A.K McDowell and Kuro in that voice, but seriously she’s got some real talent if she’s Blaze. I just read it on Wikipedia and the Sonic wiki and was wanting a confirmation

  82. @Ejji:
    Everyone is currently speculating that, including the Wiki’s. Would be odd if she was, since she’s not listed in the credits. We’ll have to wait until she or SEGA confirm it.

  83. although i enjoyed bella hudson and pete capella and i found bella more fitting for blaze, i could get used to these guys…

  84. Wow, I’m impressed by how Silver and Blaze sound the same as their old actors.
    I still think Griffith couls have stayed on as Shadow and Lisa as Amy..

  85. agh… cant watch the vid… i looked up amys new voice actress… idk if she suits her… can someone plz tell me what she sounds like? i hope SEGA didnt make this a bad game… plz some one tell me the details @ shadex27@yahoo.com. thanks -heather. p.s. idk but is shadows voice actualy alil off? hes my fave chara and i dont want him sounding old… plz someone gimi a description… seeya!

  86. Silver’s voice actor without question is Quinton Flynn. Its the same voice as the character that he plays as in the Bleach anime, Kon.

  87. Here’s my opinion on the newVA’s;
    Sonic: I liked Jason’s better but still good
    Tails: Better but for some reason annoys me
    Knuckles: Sounds very similer
    Jet: How high do they want his voice to be
    Wave: I can vouch on it being better
    Storm: Sounds better dumb
    Amy: I thought these were supposed to be better
    Cream: Did it change
    Vector: Good but I liked the depth in his old one
    Shadow: I like it better but it could be a little lower
    Rouge: Needs that attitude the other one had
    Silver: Finally I can listen to him without my ears flipping over
    Blaze: Simply better but it would be better with a bit more energy

  88. Ready?

  89. WoW I LOVE SFR (SONIC FREE RIDERS) i wont be getting it unntil i haave a xbox 360 and kinect *runs of and plays sonic riders* can someone asner my qestion who dose blaze actor the first one?

  90. I think Jet has a higher voice because J. Griffith made him sound older than Sonic when the fact is he’s a year younger, which is a big difference puberty-wise.

  91. Wait a second, Omochao’s voice sounds a lot like Hewpo’s from Klonoa? Is it the same actor?

  92. Meme / Annoying Sonic phrase potential:

    TAKE THAT!

    JUST LIKE THAT! JUST LIKE THAT!

    I am not to be trifled with!

  93. Okay, what’s with the sudden influx of anime VAs doing Sonic games all of a sudden? Nothing entirely against it, but would it really kill SEGA to do an open casting call for some fresh talent? Any way, here’s my opinion on each:

    Sonic: Drummond will always have a place as the best, but Roger here’s taking it much deeper than most of us would’ve ever expected. Pretty cool. Takes a while to get used to, but it fits.
    Tails: His voice hasn’t been tolerable since Sonic Heroes so this is a step in the right direction at least.
    Knuckles: Still miss the SA2 VA, but damn Travis does him some justice!
    Amy: WTF!?!?
    Shadow: *pulls out ear plugs as she’s stopped listening to him speak since Heroes* Oh, Shadow’s got another VA now? *listens* Huh, well, its not SA2, but its tolerable
    Rouge: A little to high with not enough appeal as she had originally.
    Cream: Really, there’s a difference?
    Vector: He was better in Heroes, but this is just as good if not better.
    Eggman: Awesome. Can’t wait till Colors ^-^
    Omachao: As annoying as ever.
    Blaze: Classy, sophisticated, cross her you’re screwed. Perfect
    Silver: Not as nasal and grating like before. Clear & perfect pitch & tone. I approve!
    Jet: MUCH better!
    Wave: Even better than Jet
    Storm: Liked him better as a dummy but it fits

    Overall, loving the new cast for the Sonic games and the new theme’s ok. Ungravitify was oh SO much better with a LOT of remix value to it.

  94. Shadow’s voice is bull shit. Sonic’s is k but I still don’t care for it. And I liked Silver’s other voice better :/

  95. SHADOW SOUNDS MEXICAN EMOISH XD BUT HOPEFULLY THE ACTOR WILL IMPROVE NOT AS GOOD AS GRIFFITH

    JASON GRIFFITH WILL ALWAYS BE THE TURE SONIC , SHADOW AND JETIN MY EYES

    AND I FOUND THE OTHER CHARACTER’S PREVIOUS VOICES BETTER…STILL NOT ADJUSTING

    ROGER IS AT LEAST BETTER THAN RYAN DRUMMOND

    RYAN WAS TERRIBLE

  96. @WikidWorx: “Okay, what’s with the sudden influx of anime VAs doing Sonic games all of a sudden? Nothing entirely against it, but would it really kill SEGA to do an open casting call for some fresh talent?”

    What’s wrong with that? I’d rather SEGA hire popular VAs who has alot of experience in voice acting for animes, cartoons, videogames, commericals, etc rather then hiring a bunch of random people off the street with very little or no experience in voice acting at all.

  97. Here’s the updated cast list, sorry for some of the confusion on the previous posts.

    Roger Craig Smith – Sonic
    Kate Higgins – Tails, Wave
    Mike Pollock – Dr. Eggman
    Kirk Thornton – Shadow
    Wally Wingert – Announcer
    Cindy Robinson – Amy
    Karen Strassman – Rouge
    Michelle Ruff – Cream
    Mike Mycheck – Jet
    Kent Hampton – Knuckles, Storm
    Keith Silverstein – Vector
    Elle Deets – Omochao, Blaze

  98. The first Sonic Riders was great and fun

    Sonic Riders Zero gravity was so much better and thrilling

    I think im gonna watch a playthrough of this on youtube I’m just not interested in Kinect would have been better if it had a controller option or was multiplatformed like Unleashed was…

    But nevermind still looks good

    To me I didn’t mind all games from 2005 – now….the only bad one was ….Sonic…… 06 D: ……

    Welcome New cast (I still need to get use to them…don’t like em yet)

    Good luck 4Kids Cast in future roles (its been a fun and thrilling 5 years)

    I think Roger can improve in future games with more months/years to come but Hes doing so much better than Ryan Drummond 🙂 …Jason is the only Truesonic for me Ryan and Martin were awful

    Travis is doing quite well but for me the true Knuckles voice is Dan Green

    At least SEGA kept Mike Pollock…no one can replace Eggman’s real voice so hope they keep him for more years to come 🙂

  99. @ Umiyuri: Of course! I’m one of few people who is always willing to give a new person a chance. After all, change happens all the time – we can’t always control it, so it’s better to accept it. Who knows? That one-shot actor could be the perfect match for a character.

    It also helps that I’m not super picky – as long as a character falls within a certain “voice” perimeter, I’m fine XD

    @ FoxBoy: I’m sorry…I haven’t watched Naruto in EONS (well, that’s an exaggeration), and with the sound on my laptop busted, I doubt I ever will. But yes, I do realize the Naruto cast seems to have moved up a notch (aside from poor Sasuke, lolz). I wish them all luck on this new saga!

    And FWI, I’m going to get the old Xbox, not a new one ^^’ Get it fixed for free. Still might try Kinect though, even if I need to upgrade to play it :/

  100. @Aquaslash No, it’s not Sonic doing the menus. I thought that as well, but apparently it’s not Roger. Since Wally’s not Vector (Keith confirmed he’s voicing Vector over Facebook), I’m pretty sure he’s the announcer and POSSIBLY the E10000 character.

  101. @Grassy

    Actually Sakura moved up too. XD I’m the kinda guy who likes a lot of different things, so of course Naruto’s on the list. I only mention Naruto the most because it’s the thing I looked into the most recently of all the other stuff the Sonic voices are related to now. =P

    But I stopped caring for Naruto cuz it got boring. Then a little more interesting, then confusing and boring, then out of nowhere it got pretty cool so I started looking at it again.

    @Truesonic

    Umm… but Knuckles sound almost exactly the same. o_O

  102. @FoxBoy

    Inorite? He doesn’t even really sound like a watered down version that’s trying to copy him. That’s his natural voice most likely. It’s like his twin brother filled in for him. XD

  103. Sonic – I’m getting more and more used to Roger with every clip. 😀
    Tails – Better, but there’s still something off. Eh.
    Knuckles – Neither here nor there; to be honest, I kind of liked the last actor.
    Jet – I honestly don’t like Jet enough to care, but it’s better than Jason’s.
    Wave – Sounds like Kate Monster from Avenue Q. xD Even moreso than the last actress.
    Storm – I don’t care for Storm to begin with, and the new voice isn’t necessarily an improvement.
    Amy – I preferred the last one. Forgive me if names are escaping me. xD
    Cream – Slightly better.
    Vector – FIND THE COMPUTER – oh, yeah, it was so much less annoying. XD
    Shadow – Interesting, even though I was really starting to love Jason as Shadow. I’d have kept him in.
    Rouge – We’ll see.
    Silver – Neither here nor there also. Doesn’t help that by now I realize that this game has way too many characters.
    Blaze – It works. Nothing special.

    Seriously, the cast for these games just keeps getting bigger, and it’s really irritating me. I thought they wanted to reduce the size. Apparently, the Riders series is SEGA’s toilet for ideas and characters. I WAS glad to see Metal Sonic and Shadow, but…eh. Cream and Vector are definitely optional at this point. Rouge could potentially become interesting again if they developed her and Shadow’s character more, as well as whatever relationship (not necessarily romantic) exists therein.

    GET RID OF THE ROGUES ALREADY.

  104. @Foxboy

    I know but he doesn’t sound exactly the same as Dan Green

    Just slightly… I agree with what Monty said…I still find Dan Green much more Better

    I wonder who will be the new voices of Espio, Charmy and Omega

    Gonna miss both David Willis and Amy B….oh and R.I.P Maddie B

    And I know he was a one off character but

    If Chip ever returned or made a cameo apperance I know its unlikely but who would voice him O.o… since I’m guessing Anthony Salerno wouldn’t be able to do it again

    and what about Proffesor Pickle?

  105. The REAL names of Knuckles’/Vector’s, Omochao’s/Blaze’s, and Silver’s VAs (and the Announcer):

    Knux/Vector: Kent Hampton=Travis Willingham: Famous for Roy Mustang in Full Metal Alchemist

    Omochao/Blaze: Elle Deets=Laura Bailey: Famous for Kid Trunks in Dragon Ball Z

    Silver: Apparently he is unidentifiable t alot of people but it is without a doubt Quinton Flynn: Famous for Reno in Final Fantasy 7 Compilation, Axel in Kingdom Hearts, and Kon in Bleach

    Announcer/Big the Cat: Wally Wingert=Kyle Herbert: Famous for Narrator/ High School – Adult age Gohan in DBZ

    P.S. @ Chris “Kirbopher” Niosi

    You’re a Sonic fan? I thought you were more Nintendo, i.e. the Soopah Nintendo flash and Brawl Taunts series.

  106. Uh, BlooDood, Wally Wingert and Kyle Hebert are two entirely different people; Wally voiced Renji in Bleach and Kyle voiced Ganju/Aizen from the same show! Anyway, Wiki is still listing Wally as Silver but was that confirmed from Wally himself because unless he has I will refuse to believe that anyone other than Quinton Flynn is voicing him as Silver sounds exactly like Kon from Bleach, who Flynn voices, when Kon isn’t being a perverted idiot.

  107. Um……
    Sonic’s voice is still the problem if you ask me, I mean Anything is better than Jason, but the guy that plays Shinji’s voice from Bleach, I can’t even tell the difference in their tones its totally boring.
    as far as all the other characters go like Tails he at least Sounds better and actually has some emotion, Amy also Sounds boring not her usual angry self, Shadow Sounds pretty cool, but I can’t believe I’m saying this Jason did a good job with Shadow’s voice, Cream still annoying, Vector sounds the same but a hint of more retardism and where the hell is the rest of the chaotix I don’t really care if big can’t fit on a board if he’s to fat he should be in the game anyway, The Babylon Rouges Jet doesn’t no longer sound like a Retarded Sonic, wave sounds the same, but I liked her old voice better, Storm………MORE RETARDED!!!!! Silver perfect in every way, Blaze sounds really nice, and more princess like. Eggman I can’t tell a difference so that’s good, and Knuckles next to Silver he’s perfect and for once not burning with his stupid rage. The omochoa thing doesn’t sound annoying anymore, Metal Sonic didn’t say anything just like in Sonic Rivals 2, why can’t they bring back his voice of Awesomeness from Sonic Heroes.
    Sonic Free Riders would have been better with no story and they just should have made a game where every single Sonic character was playable, instead of it being exactly like Sonic Rivals, or Sonic and the Secret of the Rings.

  108. You can’t tell a difference with Eggman, Sonurtoichi, because there is none; Mike Pollack is the only 4Kids actor that stayed on. Also, Big is in the game as an NPC as his new voice, Kyle Hebert (aka Aizen), already said he was on his twitter account.

  109. Regarding Quinton Flynn possibly being Silver. I tweeted him (rather excitedly) asking him directly if he was really the new voice of Silver, and this was his reply:

    “You never know … You’ll have to give a listen ;-)”

    Does that read like a yes to you guys?

  110. @FoxBoy – Ha ha, I suppose so!

    Finally got around to hearing the actors. The only two I didn’t like were Amy (Minnie Mouse? They made her even more annoying) and Omochao (He somehow turned into a SHE, and is less annoying. That should not be!).

    As for Shadow…Well, I like the slight accent and the fact he sounds more like David. But, Kirk drags the sentence out and takes, like, four breaths for that. He’ll get better I’m sure, but he needs to speed up Shadow’s talking…He doesn’t work in slow mo XD

  111. @ Jim-X Hmm, at the very least it does sound interesting! 😀 I also emailed him Sunday nite but have gotten nothing and I don’t use twitter and the like.

  112. In Sonic Colors on the DS another cast member was shown. It was Vic Mignogna, he plays E-123 Omega now I think.
