I think StarFox Assault has the best.

I concur, Wolf Fang. In my opinion, StarFox Assault's voice work is the best in the series. Every voice just fit the characters to me there. :D

Star Fox Assault had the best voice actors. Wolf sounded much colder in that one and Peppy not too old.

Star Fox Adventures, with Assault a close second. It had a lot more characters so I want to say it, but…nah, come to think of it, Adventures had way more characters than Assault. Definitely Adventures. Every time someone opened their mouth it just sounded so natural. :D

SF64, definitely :D. It's just the quotability and ability to easily mimic those lines at the right moments that puts that game on top for me.

Assault and Adventures would come next in that order though ^^

"Don't hesitate,when the time comes,just act."

At the end of the Corneria level and right before fighting the Aparoid queen (If I remember right).

I also liked 64. Their voices sounded right. But the reason I like assault better is because it had better quality.

I too have a character to character basis - I forget if I've posted my little "analysis" here before, but I'll do so here because, hey, why not. I should note though, that I will not mention Adventures personally, because I just universally dislike the voices there. Not one really appealed to me. I'll also only be mentioning the voices that were in both Assault and 64.

Fox McCloud: Hard to say here - in 64 he sounded young, eager, energetic. And that's exactly what he was. He was the new kid with a heavy reputation to live up to. In Assault however, nearly ten years later, his voice is deeper, more steady, calmer, more experienced - very fitting after that much time, I think. I don't really feel that either voice is actually more fitting than the other here.

Falco Lombardi: The only real change is that Falco took on a New York accent. I gotta say, it fits the character. I just can't hear Falco in my head without it anymore, unless it's a line directly out of 64. The actual quality of the acting, however, I find was better in 64. Some of Falco's lines in Assault came out fairly awkward. But the addition of the accent alone fits well enough that I'm personally willing to overlook it.

Slippy Toad: There really is no question here. Slippy has gone from a voice that makes gender identification impossible to one that, while distinctly male, keeps the high-pitched, nervous, almost squeaky voice of Slippy alive. He sounds intelligent, and his combat-shy nature comes across much better with the new voice, while the 64 voice just sounded whiny and annoying. No question here, Assault wins out.

Peppy Hare: Peppy Hare of 64, while an experienced Veteran, was still full of energy, and had an incredible mix of caution, and a "Give em hell" attitude, with a slight southern accent. He was a great character. As time draws on, however, the steady head of experience begins to win out, the accent cools to the point of disappearing, and he sounds much more sedate come the time of Assault. However, this is not a bad thing. Peppy is OLD, and it needs to show. And apart from that, Peppy of 64, while being an awesome character with a great voice (that unfortunately got him turned into a meme-spouting idiot by the Internet), didn't really have any truly shining moments. In Assault, there are two separate cinematics that really give Peppy that spotlight, and show that while he's trying to be retired, and old, he still has that fire in his heart, and is still ready and capable of showing exactly what he's made of. Peppy of Assault wins a great victory here.

ROB64: Not much to say. His voice got higher pitched. I personally preferred it deeper, but that's just personal opinion.

General Pepper: I was disappointed by his Assault voice, personally. In 64, he had an air of dignity, he sounded noble, a respectable figure - THIS was the guy in charge... and he needed your help. In Assault, we got the voice of Grizzled Army Guy # 456257. There was nothing special about him. How the mighty have fallen...

Wolf O'Donnell: I loved the british accent of 64. It added a real malevolence to his voice that well-fit his role. A despicable arch-rival hell-bent on your destruction, cool and taunting, every inch the villain. But then, in later games, he became more of a thug out for his own interests, with a grudge against Fox. He dropped the accent, and took on a gruff, gravelly, deep voice. And while I personally don't think it would fit the lines from 64 very well, the Assault voice appeals to me for Wolf, it really fits the character he's become. The classic British Wolf will always be a classic, though, and not for that dumb "can't let you do that" meme.

Leon Powalski: My appreciation for Wolf's new voice, however, is no excuse for what they did to Leon. Leon is, to my knowledge, supposed to be a cool, cold-blooded killer with a passion for torture and no comprehension of the word "mercy". In 64, that's just what we got. In Assault, we got a high-pitched, whiny, irritable crony of a lizard. It was honestly just depressing.

Pigma Dengar: Pigma took an interesting turn. In Assault, he was portrayed as a greedy fat slob with no regard for anyone else. And in a way, this fits him. However, coming from 64, it was a bit jarring to hear that kind of voice coming from a character that we'd grown accustomed to hearing as the high-pitched, sadistic greedy SOB who mercilessly taunted his former friends and their comrades over his betrayal, never missing a chance to remind them of just how badly he'd screwed James and Peppy over. Not only could the new Pigma voice never pull off these jabs as well as the squealing, grating voice of 64 Pigma, he never even ATTEMPTED to! The only indication that they'd ever even encountered Pigma before was Pigma saying "Long time no see", and then Peppy later commenting that "Pigma never missed a trick". It was sad, but then... perhaps that's what they were aiming for. Pigma's voice took a downward turn, but then so had Pigma himself.

Andrew Oikonny: And one last contender for the award of "Biggest change in voice", good old Andrew Oikonny. He was something of a mystery back then, wasn't he? Ok, not really. There simply wasn't a lot to him. A much deeper voice, at least compared to these days, a real wannabe-tough-guy attitude, and he was apparently Andross' nephew. Oh, and he chased Slippy. His voice was decent then. The problem is, he was just sorta... there. Just another face, really. These days, however, he's just as whiny, high-pitched and annoying as Slippy, which I think really fits. It really clinches the whole "incompetent ruler" thing he's set up for himself. Let's put things in perspective here, and imagine if these voices were swapped. 64 Andrew's voice would probably seem a bit out of place trying the Assault Andrew's dialogue. It wouldn't have the same effect. Put Assault Andrew in the 64 Dialogue though, and it really seems to fit, doesn't it? He was just as whiny and trying-to-be-tough then as he is now, his voice just made him seem... better at it. Slip in the higher voice, and suddenly his position on Star Wolf makes a lot more sense. He's there because Andross put him there to keep tabs on Star Wolf, not because he's a great pilot. It also helps you realize why he's chasing Slippy. He's the only one he can hope to compete against.

I'm in agreement with Blaze 100%, I don't think I found one point that I didn't agree with.:D

^ Couldn't agree more. Though I think General Pepper was fine in both assault and 64, and you have to remember that he's gotten a lot older.
