Audio Atrocities™ : T.R.A.G.:Mission of Mercy Sunsoft Playstation 1999
There is a name for games like this. A festering pustule of a name nurtured in the halls of THQ and Acclaim, oozing out into retail bargain bins with a sickening stench and telltale sound. Yes, this is CRAP.

And in a surprising first for Audio Atrocities, this game seems to include the equivalent of a movie "Alan Smithee" - Dead Harrington. One of the "actors" was so ashamed at the horrendous turd they just dropped on the microphone that they chose a literary reference (Dead Harrington) rather than put their real name in the credits of the game.

This is one of the more well-rounded bad games out there, exhibiting all the hallmarks of an Atrocious production. There's monotone delivery, bad writing, grown women using cute little voices to pass as little girls (with grating results, as usual), bad audio production featuring clipped audio and cut-off words, terrible effects, and boring gameplay.

Well, what are you waiting for? Get to clicking! There's some really funny bad stuff here!

Exhibit A: ...I shall become ruler of the entire world, ah, ha, ha, ha...
The bad guy is no bad guy at all because he broke a cardinal recording rule - and I know you can repeat it by now, so all together now: If the laughter is awkward cut it out of the script. There. You're now more qualified to direct than the hack from this production.

Exhibit B: ...maybe it'll come in useful!
Yes, the bartender sounds a little fey, but not retarded. How then, do we explain exquisite grammar choices like "maybe it'll come in useful!", then? Well, we can't...so we don't even try.

Exhibit C: owdy Burns. Ha ha ha...imagine meeting you here.
A great example of the poor audio production values. The "H" in "Howdy" was obviously cut off and they left it IN the game - twice. The production mistake was copied to another area so the same bad clip with the same obvious mistake was repeated. Those crazy Japanese recording studios with their magic mushrooms and free-flowing sake really rachet down the quality in almost any English dub.

The Rest:
Haven't had enough? Here's some additional clips for your amusement:
Clip 4, Clip 5, Clip 6, Clip 7, Clip 8, Clip 9, Clip 10, Clip 11, Clip 12, Clip 13, Clip 14, Clip 15, Clip 16, Clip 17, Clip 18, Clip 19, Clip 20, Clip 21, Clip 22

“...maybe it'll come in useful.”
