Voice overs would have been welcome if they were done in the first place, but they weren't.
I've always preferred reading my FF games, and the voices I imagine in my head are probably far better than any $10 an hour voice actor deliver lol.
I mean if it's done RIGHT by a professional. You know how 90% of Japanese anime sounds better than the american counter parts? It's because (in my head) I think the Japanese take it far more serious, than when translated to english the producers / directors don't seem to take the game as serious, it always sounds "goofy" when done in english.
Well, I voted for "detracted from the game", as I said, I'd rather leave some things to the imagination.
