IGN: Kid Icarus Uprising Review

Kid Icarus Uprising is a fantastic game full of superb action, stunning graphics and art design, incredible music (truly some of Nintendo's best), humorous dialogue and solid gameplay. Despite that, it suffers from an equal number of problems, including some very frustrating and awkward controls, a fairly repetitive level structure, characters that talk too much and action that sometimes overwhelms the 3DS's relatively small screen. (3DS, Kid Icarus: Uprising) 8.5/10

'Slightly annoying voices'...
... which is why it's a shame that it doesn't have an option to play the game with the original japanese voices.

@yabhero You just said sometimes the dubs are horrible, a lot of times the english actors either have annoying voices, like this game for example, or they just don't convey the right amount of emotion like the japanese voice actors do. I generally perfer dubs though as long as they do a decent job of it, but there are still some animes I perfer to watch subbed.

I actually can't say exactly how I feel about these voice actors, but some of Pit's lines sound like they would get annoying. Still might get this game when I get my 3ds.

I never detect any emotio in Japanese... they all sound monotone or squeaky

Some dubs are well done, such as School Rumble and Fruits Basket, but they're rare for me. I hear Pokemon voice actors way too often
