La Bohème Phyllida Lloyd's production … now revived by Kate Saxon, forcefully desentimentalises the work, setting it in a faceless metropolis … Lloyd and Saxon explore the emotional and sexual freedom that counters this grimness with great tenderness, though the results are not for purists. The Guardian, January 28, 2002

Fable II

The voice acting is peerless, the dialogue pithy and sarcastic, every character believable. Within minutes, Fable II had us in its grasp… 2008 360 Magazine

"The consistently awesome voice acting... peerless… making Fable 2 one of the best-acted videogames yet.” 1UP [5]

“….the voice acting and graphics are top class.” The Sunday Times

Age of Conan:Hyborian Adventures The voice acting is great, and the musical score is impressive.[6]

The voice acting is very good in Age of Conan. For the first 20 levels, every NPC is fully voiced which really brings the world to life.[7]

Dragon Quest: Journey of the Cursed King From the engaging script to bold choice of western voice actors........there's not a sound you hear from game start to game end that dips below brilliance. 2006 Edge Award - Best Audio Design [4]
