Singapore I Am Disappoint

I’m not going to pretend I know anything about this game, but considering that one of the more prominent local bloggers (Mr. Brown) decided to write about it, I’d say it deserves some mention here for the MONUMENTAL FAIL.

For those who can make neither head nor tail of it, it is a US game with, inexplicably enough, some voice acting that seems to have come straight out of a HDB heartland, with the stresses in all the wrong places. For a more expert critique, try asking an English Language student.

But, in all seriousness, this response is hardly born of a colonial hangover or a prejudiced opinion about how English has to be spoken in an ang moh or atas manner. Firstly, why would the game developers permit horrible voice acting to mangle English and render harder to understand a game aimed primarily at American audiences?

Secondly, and more importantly, do note that the English really is terrible. A few lahs and lors away from being, as the Gahmen might put, not Speaking Good English.
