Ok I dont know if this topic was talked about earlier but im sure you've all heard the "English" voice over for Ryu in the campus tour video gameplay ? Are they gonna change it or is that gonna be it?! It sounds so cheesey!! I love the one we have been hearing from the videos why not jus keep it simple and stick with that!!??! I dont wanna have to switch to the japenese voices and read throught the whole game but if that horrid voice is gonna be replayed everytime i do a flying swallow im gonna smash my tv!!

I don't like the english voice much either. I'm going to play through the first time in english and then switch to Japanese after I beat it.

I hope there's an option to make the screams by the Japanese voice actor and the dialog by the English voice actor, because these screams are BAD !

I agree that the attack V.O. for hayabusa in NG 2 isn't great but I don't mind the english cut-scene dialogue much. I probably will switch back and forth between english and japanese but I'll mostly play it in english a lot despite the bad attack V.O.

Yes it is. Have you watched the cutscenes where Sonia appears?

I'm also disappointed by Ryu's new english voice. It is decent during dialogus but during fight, it's horrible...

I don't think I've heard the new English VO. Anybody got a link?

It's not so much the voice during cutscenes but the new voice Ryu makes during combos when he does certain moves.

Yeah, the way he does "Huraaaaaaaaah" every time he does the aerial Lunar attack got a bit annoying...

Thanks.

The VO during the cutscene wasn't too bad, I actually kind of like it.

The GARRRRRUGH! sound whenever Ryu did the jumping Lunar attack was kind of annoying. The other sounds weren't too bad though. I liked the sounds during the UT.

Also, the scream of the ninja that was burning to death was so wickedly awesome.

Overall I don't think the VO is too bad. Maybe it'll grow on me. I never really cared for the Japanese VO in the original NG's at first but over time I grew to like them.

Ryu sounds a little like someone from the hood.

I wonder why they didn't use the same actor for Ryu's English voice...

The Japanese sound the same though. Am I wrong?

In battle it surely does as far as I can tell.
