Michael Giacchino brought his composing skills to Finest Hour by incorporating an 80-piece orchestra and a 50-piece choir into its score
Dennis Haysbert of [i]24[/i] fame will narrate the game, while Brian Johnson of the rock group AC/DC will play the main character in the British campaign. Gamers will remember Haysbert as having voiced Irving Lambert, commando Sam Fisher’s boss in Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell series.
