Well I played the EU version of Virtues Last Reward for a few days now and I can't say I like the japanese voice acting. The japanese dubs are kinda annoying here (oh and I especially hate the rabbids voice). It' s harder to get the feelings of the characters if you don't understand what they are talking. Yes, there are english subs to compensate that a bit but it's still harder than good english. You first hear what they are saying (and don't have a clue what they were saying) and only then you read the subs and get what they were saying. So there is a delay between spoken words and understanding the spoken words. I wish there were some option to disable the japanese voices, because in such mystery game annoying voice acting is poison to the game experience. I was actually thinking of skipping this game till the 3DS has been region lock hacked (somehow I doubt it will ever happen but oh well). Granted I don't have a clue how good or how bad the english voice acting is in the US release. Is the english dub any good? Btw, no spoilers here.
