Audio Atrocities™ : Zoids: Battle Legends Atari Gamecube 2004
Back in the day, Atari meant innovation. Pick up an Atari game and the cool-to-suck ratio put the odds of it being good in your favor. No more. Atari is nothing more than a marketing tool bought to give grandma that little extra push when deciding whether to buy the turd she's holding and is considering for Little Johnny's Christmas Extravaganza.

Zoids is based on a Japanese licensed property with mechanized beasts and lots of battles. There's a pretty decent fan base in the US, but they get no respect from this localization. The game's difficult to control, and the voices are of the janitorial staff variety.

Bad Translation: Check.
Bad Acting: Check.
Poor Recording Quality: Check.

Yep, it's another Atrocity.

Exhibit A: Lose for the sake of my ambition!
No one talks like this in real-life...ever. Bad, bad, bad translation that should have been fixed for the English-speaking audience.

Exhibit B: We're shadows...we exist only in the dark.
I'm not entirely certain what physics-bending universe this person's from, but shadows require a light source, generally speaking. No light, no shadow. And yet...this line still exists.

Exhibit C: Ho, ho, ho...the power is truly great.
An Audio Atrocities cardinal rule was again broken here, and you probably already know what it is, right? Good, I thought so. You're learning...
