    To be fair we were not asking for much just changing the voice back, if you want o hear about real change look up what happened to the new Xbox one system....the whole system was like remade because of the internet

    It's all the old voice! It has been slightly slightly pitched up (probably for clarity - as much as we all hated the new voice, everyone did say it was much clearer and easier to understand since the original audio was so deep and rough).

    It was also slightly edited for time to fit the new projection effects (which is what we all hoped was their excuse for removing it in the first place). In the case of the video posted below, they removed the part where he goes "NO! FOOLISH MORTALS!" before "You looked into my eyes!" It was, in essence, replaced by his eyes opening and turning angry.

    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    Re: Mara's old voice returns!!

    Here's a video I shot today (8/29/13) of the return of Mara's old voice:



    and here's a video that I recorded last week showing off the new voice that most people hate:

    It sounds different than it did, but that is definitely not the original voice. It's a different voice and the script has changed as well. It is notable that the word "infidels" is missing.

The script for the 3 doors is the same as the original recording, they did remove the "infidels" or "foolish mortals". However it sounds ominous and awesome. Unlike the crap one they had for the past week or so.
    If you play this video and the original recording back to back they do not sound like the same person unfortunately. The original had a much deeper, booming voice.

    As I said, it is the old voice with the pitch slightly heightened, probably to be easier to understand. They removed the "foolish mortals!" "infidels!" "NO!" part to help the audio sync up to the visuals. Those exclamations were "replaced" by the eyes opening.

    I can't imagine that you know any of these things for a fact and you shouldn't state them as such. This is all conjecture.
    If you ask me, none of these things make sense. I don't recall anyone in the past ever saying that they had a hard time understanding Mara's words due to the depth of the voice. I certainly never did. In person I do find it a little more difficult to hear the words now, but that is mostly due to the very loud sound effects accompanying the projection.
    I would think they removed the word "infidels" in an effort to make the attraction more politically correct, frankly. I don't think it has anything to do with syncing up to the projection. If anything, an empty space with an awkward pause is left where the shout of "infidels!" or "foolish mortals!" was. The initial moment of opening the eyes is not really dramatic or eye catching (no pun intended) enough to fill that space.
