    Lol. They are actually revoicing Luke. Thats why. And i prefer US voice>British voice. I think the voice acting here is actually good so i didnt bother looking for undub patches for all the previois games of this series.

    It does suck but I understand why they didn't include that. They would have to translate all the dialogue to a number of different languages while in the American versions of the game, they only need to translate it to English.

    The voices in the US versions sound like British English to me.

    I can't wait for this game... I only played the first game though. Are there any significant story references? Should I play through the series before this game?

    and ever since the characters have been pretty much British, so I really don't get why you'd want American voices for British characters.

    To any Briton, Luke's US voice is so obviously fake. Annoyingly so, in fact. I can't even play the US version because his warbling little American-cockney accent pisses me off so much.

    While it might help a bit, there's no need to play it. Since you've played the first game, you already know the premise of the series.

    Must be becasue im used to the american voice. After playing all of them with the american voice, then i guess it will become a habit to keep it going.

    To be honest, if they released this RPG as a separate game, I would definitely buy it. It's a really great bonus.

    I pre-ordered it from Amazon. No bonus with it but I don't really care.

    Anybody else pre-order it or are you all just waiting to pirate it?
