Aside from Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart, it is the same like 4 people doing the entire game.

Oblivion inc shivering isles has somewhere around 15.
 
Last I heard Skyrim was over 70.
 
Fun Fact - Charles Muntz from UP is in Skyrim. ;]

@TheHumanDove: I just played Metro 2033. He is like every other person in that game. He is the Nolan North of Russian accents.

Oblivion sounded like they just plucked the developers from their desks and handed them a microphone. Although it was their first voice acted game. It's been a billion years since then.

@mandude: Do you mean first fully voice acted game? Because Morrowind had plenty of voice acting...

Horrible creatures. I avoid them whenever I can.

@Cataphract1014: Firstly, Oblivion what more than four voice actors, something like 8 or 9 (not including Shiver Isles) and secondly, of course it will have more than Oblivion.

No. This game has only Nolan North. There's no soundtrack, it's just Nolan North whistling.

It may just be a conspiracy theory, but I know for a fact that every voice in Skyrim is Michael Winslow.

I'd buy that game.

It had voices, but 99% of it was just reactions to the player. Almost all of the dialogue was text, even for story characters. In Oblivion, everything was voiced, which why everyone complain about there just being 10 voice actors in the game, 13 if you count Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean and Terance Stamp(not counting Shivering Isles).

@Xolare: One day there will be a game where Nolan North is everything and everyone. He would make the sounds of guns shooting, of swords clashing, of Godzilla fighting a giant mecha and he would also voice EVERY character. This day, life and existence will finally make sense.

...IS nolan north in this game at all?  if so that's just another reason for me to buy it.
