    Default they killed the sound completely

    Now we know how clever beans are ... omg.
    Take master sounds and replace them with cheap crappy childish ding-dongs.
    It all over is sounded as C64 in the 80s (no offense, the C64 was brillant, Omega-sound isn't).
    *REMOVED*
    Why not simply leave it as it was b4 - what a downer.
    Thought after some years it would be time to return - but my ears won't take that on the long run - sorry.

    Is there anybody out there feeling the same ?

    -_- It's the 2097 announcer. I quite like that change.

    FYI, there's polite ways to make your statement, please read the forum rules.

    Only a couple are a turnoff for me, but not to the point it becomes unplayable, some are a nice new spin on things.
    I do prefer the female voice myself, but that's mostly because of personal bias (I have the same thing with music vocals), however she is still there, in menus and for incoming weapons, the distorted male voice only got added for pickups.

    I actually rather like the sound changes; there's a chunkiness in the new barrel roll sound and some of the weapons (the rockets especially whew) that contributes this great heft to the game I'm, of course).

    The sound was handled out of the office actually, cant take credit for them being better........ or worse (for some people! )

    I think the sound is entirely awesome. I was totally blissed out playing last night, headphones plugged into my DS4, cranked way up. I didn't want it to end.

    The only sound I'm personally put off with based on Racingfan's videos are the rocket sounds: I don't know the name of it but I absolutely love the sound rockets made on 2048. The same kind of sound Fusion missiles made that really sells them as being powerful weapons. I'd have to reserve judgement until I have both the OC and a PS4 buuuut, for now I'm really liking what I've heard.

    I really love the Vita 2048 sounds. They made the game more "badasser" than it already had been without them.
    Really glad we have them here too. And these new SFX for weapons. Just wow.

    Heya,

    We're a bit disappointed that you don't like the new sound effects: they weren't handled by us at Clever Beans but actually by one of Sony's world class sound departments... (http://www.develop-online.net/interv...ection/0232822)

    Using the original sound effects wasn't an option available for us unfortunately, as the only sound assets we could get / find were the compressed sounds. (which aren't the quality that we'd need nowadays) - so the really tiny vita speaker sounds.. Basically we had to remake all the engine sounds from scratch for the entire vita side of the game...

    We then realised there was a huge quality disparity between the PS3 side and the Vita side.. so we upgraded that side too...

    If you're not feeling it, [and don't already have] some surround sound systems would improve the experience no end...

    Hopefully it'll grow on you, but "leaving it as it was" was never ever going to be good enough.


    Chris
