I'm not sure if anyone's noticed this or brought this up yet. But at the ending of Super Mario Sunshine when Bowser talks he actually says words with complete sentances. But in the beginning movie of Super Mario Galaxy Bowser just makes grunting noises when he talks. I'm not complaining but why wouldn't Nintendo keep Bowser's voice the way it was in Sunshine? I think it sounded good and suited him. To me it just seems like Nintendo's takinga bit of a step down with voice acting. I'm glad they kept Peach's voice though butwho else thinks they should have kept Bowser's voice?

Here are videos of Bowser from Sunshine and Galaxy

I didagree. I think bowser's voice was terrible at the end of Sunshine. I prefer the random growling

hell no!! it sound much more cooler with random grunts than with voice acting. I just don't imagine Bowser with a good Voive acting, it wasn0t made to have it, just like Link.

here is how i think of it.

sunshine is to galaxy as rayman hoodlum havoc was to the old raymen games.

im not implying anything, just live with it a mario game is a mario game.

you did bring up an interesting topic tho :P

The voice acting was terrible...

I prefer the grunts and Peach's 'MARRRRIOOOOO!!!!' It sounds so sweet. :)

Dont really like bowsers voice, unless they can actually get a voice that match the grunts in SMG, then forget it.

His voice in SMS, just sucks all the menace out of his personaility which makes the SMG intro so gr8

I liked bowser jnrs voice though, since his voice matches his laugh so i hope they keep it, wouldnt bother me too much if they dont though.

Neh. It doesn't really matter to me, because I doubt there will be all that many cutscenes. I just wanna run and jump and do a dance when I get a star, or whatever it is that you get in this game. On a side note, did anyone notice that the music during the ships attack was from Super Mario Bros. 3 when you're on the ship for the boss at World 1? Anyone at all?

I liked the grunts, I'm a fan of that type of voice work in certain games, and MArio is one of them

Mario games should keep voice acting to a minimum. However, Zelda games... that's a different story.

you can listen to what he is saying because Bowser and Bowser JR were talking in there lenguage, and the voice acting in that game was not that good....dude when you play SMG it makes it look cooler when he is gronting everything, like when he kidnapped peach it was awesome listening to him gruntingabout something :P

I have had a total of 8 hours playing SMG and I am glad they didn't use voice acting for Bowser. The grunts suit him fine. Besides I beleive everyone has a different voice for Bowser when they read what he says and I think that makes it much more enjoyable for people.
