I just unlocked an extra in the Japanese version of the game (Dororo, or Blood Will Tell in English) which showed a clip from the English version -

Terrible, terrible voice acting! I have to admit, I've always been in the sub-title camp as opposed to the dubbing camp (I ALWAYS prefer original voices, even with English movies dubbed into other languages), but this was just awful. The voice actors in the Japanese version were just right, and the English version just sounded so... soulless.

Especially in a game like this in which characterization was a large part of the appeal, this would actually be a deal-breaker for me.

Just FYI.
