VO­CAL DIS­CORD

EDGE - - PLAY -

The chocks-away, tally-ho Brit nar­ra­tor has a some­what wa­ver­ing ac­cent – some­thing we’re more prone to notic­ing than play­ers else­where in the world, per­haps, but Phaser Lock has them cov­ered too. As pi­lots in need call for your help over comms, the wonkily voiced stereo­types make it dif­fi­cult to dis­tin­guish a Scot from an In­dian and a New Yorker from a Texan. But then Flight Con­trol has enough prob­lems al­ready; in this con­text, sound­ing like a cul­tur­ally in­sen­si­tive ’70s sit­com feels al­most ap­pro­pri­ate.
