I've been playing the game for more then an hour.. and I've realized something, now first of all let me say that rarely have I heard such great voice acting.
Being a native french speaker, I recognize the true frenchy accent when they speak english, unlike the made up english fenchy accent one could hear from a certain "Nico Colar" in broken sword.. kof kof kof.
What's more amazing is the details they put into foreign languages the primary user won't/shouldn't necessarily see... or hear. I'll explain what I mean below by giving an example :
The greatest example would be this (I'd try to avoid spoilers)... I was knocking at some doors in the train, occupied by several egyptian women, and they wouldn't open, their husband would just tell me to leave. In comes a small french child from another compartment, knocks at one of the egyptian compartment and enters.
I said to myself, it's surely a randomly generated event that shouldn't happen, because since the beginning of the game, those egyptian women wouldn't let anybody in their compartment, and what would a french little boy go do with them since they don't seem to speak anything other then arabic ?
Then I approach the door and I hear in arabic something along the lines of " Come dear.. " "What a nice boy, he's the only one whom visit us, the others are afraid of us and don't even speak to us" and the boy replies in french "Thank you for the cake ! Haha that tickles ! "
I mean, these speech weren't translated since the main protagonist doesn't speak arabic.
I'm pretty much amazed about the amount of details put into this game... it clearly looks like it has NOT been rushed, and they recruited authentic egyptian voice actors to say very realistic lines even though most players wouldn't understand a word of it.
It feels like they aren't trying to cheat the player, they're even giving additional value that wouldn't necessarily be appreciated.
The different conversations between characters has been a delight to hear and see... and NOTHING seems out of place.
The egyptian use typical expressions, the french used is not the over-exaggerated french you could here in some games nowadays, and I'm even learning a little russian while playing :P.
Bref, this game amazed me.
