Really would like to play this game but the sounds (voices) are horrific ! Beats me why that was not touched/remastered.

Because the original files were lost to time and they only had the already compressed file from original game to work with. They cleaned it as best as they could.
Re-recording the whole game was impossible budget-wise.
And sadly, seeing how low the sales appear to be…it seems Outcast is dead for good :(

I bought though and am glad I did.

Ok, didnt know that. It is indeed sad since the game is an original one.
