Christopher Judge – Kratos (God of War)
Top 5 Best Voice Actor Performances of Q2 2018
Stargate fans familiar with Christopher Judge’s iconic portrayal of Teal’c would have been waiting patiently for the moment when Kratos paid homage to his iconic catchphrase in God of War. Indeed, they weren’t disappointed. His deep, powerful baritone voice worked superbly well during both the roar of the game’s most intense set-pieces and the more poignant moments of its emotional cut-scenes. And that’s what Judge does so brilliantly as a voice actor — he’s able to balance the booming aggression he’s capable of with the soft, almost broken burble that reflects Kratos’ more mature, somewhat fatigued personality in this latest entry in the series.
In a single performance, Judge has surely cemented himself as the definitive voice of Kratos, and we fully expect him to reprise his role moving forward. Let’s hope it’s not too long before we hear Kratos bark commands to his Boy once again.
