Palant had received mixed reviews for her performance as Tails. She had been criticized for making Tails sound girlish, but was highly praised for sounding more intelligent, cute and more like an 8-year-old. As the games progressed, many fans saw major improvement in Palant's voice acting, mostly in Sonic Unleashed,where many fans claimed that Palant finally perfected the role and was sounding more boyish. Though some fans praise her replacement, Kate Higgins, other fans still prefer Palant's role as Tails.
