    SP is... hmm... not good. Above average due to atmosphere, perhaps, but I certainly didn't bother with it for long. It's a great game for coop. You might give it a try in SP, since you already bought it, should be fun at least for a while, but don't expect too much.

    Personally I found art direction and atmosphere great and the gameplay challenging and enjoyable (ymmv, as obvious from reading this thread). I even liked the barely comprehensible story; I thought it fit the setting and was a refreshing change from more comprehensible but generic sci-fi plots.

    I wish there were much more SP content though. Replaying the same short campaign over and over is not fun to me. I also thought that character progression was far too slow, and required far too much grinding, but afair it was a minority opinion.

    Sorry for necroing an old topic but was thinking of giving this game a go. I have the 1.37 version. Heard that the awkward translation makes things needlessly obscure but that there's a patch for it called the Text Revamp Mod, which is supposedly a better translation. Since I'm a newbie to the game would this be recommended over the vanilla experience? Thanks for any input.

    Nah. The awkward translation is an inseparable part of the whole package.

    And besides, I seriously doubt whether this game would be any less strange even with a perfect translation.

    Just look at modern english used in the internet and you get the answer.
    Would say that EYE transtaltion is less painful to read than average posts on gaming forums like neoGAP

    Yes, absolutely. Do not listen to Darth, he sees the game as being some kind of performance art exhibition.

    You still shouldn't expect the game's story to make much sense, particularly not the ending. It is "open to interpretation", which as we all know is nuspeak for "makes no fucking sense whatsoever."

    Nice game, though.

    No, what I mean is that in a game that is so completely fucked up, the wacky translation where every character talks like a complete nutjob or a mysticool sensei only adds to the general atmosphere.

    Now that is true.

    Particularly the sikrit true ending to end all endings (tm)(c)(r)

    I had no problems with English text and, I'd suggest installing that version that allows multiple small clips per one slot.

    Complaining about dialogues is like complaining about story in Zeno Clash. Yes we know Zeno Clash authors were on shrooms, and authors of this were in drunken stupor. But if you have problems with story, you should read some philosophic articles, you don't need to read actual books.

    Really? Well, that solves the mystery, then. I genuinely thought it was the translation's fault.

    I thought the fucked-up Firaxian gibberish everybody in the game spoke added a great deal to the experience.

    But, are you guys complaining about the textual translation ?? That's fucked up, I haven't seen anything wrong with the English version..

    (Speech on the other hand.. is designed to be that deformed, since it takes place in the future and all.. )
