Metal Gear v Snake Arm

It's safe to say that Troy Baker - one of gaming's most prolific voice actors - knows what he's talking about when it comes to voicing video game characters. Baker, who plays Ocelot in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, reckons that fans shouldn't disregard Kiefer Sutherland's role as the title's main character, Big Boss, or Snake, as he's sometimes otherwise known.

"To his credit, Kiefer Sutherland knocked it out of the freaking park, and he came in and he put the work in," Baker stated during a panel at Indy PopCon. He goes on to mention David Hayter, the original voice of Snake, and how, to him, both actors fit the role. "I love David Hayter, I love David, he's a good dude and he's Snake, but so is Kiefer. And that guy showed up, rolled up his sleeves and got dirty on this game. So reserve judgement until you play it. You only have like two more months left and trust me it'll be worth it."

Strong words from The Last of Us star, but we reckon that he's bang on the money with this one. Kojima's latest is only a couple of months away, and with Sutherland being such an experienced actor, there's plenty of reason to look forward to seeing the fruits of his labour.

But what do you think? Are you still weary of the change in personnel, or do you think that Sutherland really will knock it out of the park? Become a demon in the comments section below.
