Me.

I actually misread that as 'No'. :P

I was completely blowing this off at first, since it seems to be mostly the same as on the PS1 AND I don't like the updated artwork since it followed the obnoxious trend of modernizing designs that aren't even a decade old, but it IS re-localized and re-dubbed.

I haven't even played it, so I'm definitely picking this one up. I expect good things from this one. *Checks wallet too see if I can afford all these good games*

Star Ocean: The Second Story has the best voice acting ever.

I hope the re-dub didn't try to re-do all the old lines. Hearing Claude instead of Crawd when he advanced forward! just wouldn't be the same.

I liked the old voice acting...it gave it sort of a mystery science 3000 feel.

Haha, I was making fun of Claude's voice earlier with that exact quote. Some of the things he says just do not make ANY sense. I loved that game, can't wait to give this remake a go.

Since I'm not a masochist myself, this is one of the main reasons I'm getting the new port.  It's kind of like with Grandia Xtreme - when I'm putting characters in my party because their voice acting DOESN'T bother me as much, there's something wrong with that.

No one shouts out attacks quite like Spike Spencer.  Hence, why I'm loving him as Claude in this version.

The voice acting is awful... specially some NPC... OMG... is really bothering me... the PS version was at least funny, this one tries to be too serious thus losing the fun...

Not all the NPCs are bad...though a lot of these aren't spectacular.

I just got Celine into my party.  Good lord, does she sound sedated...

ʹm just about 1 hour into the game... and something that bothers me is the layout of the buttons... O to accept and X to cancel was the how the original worked, since now they switched the buttons Im all confused and although this issue can be fixed using the customize control on the settings options, things like auto-running can be changed. The new portraits look too childish, theres the issue of the names (all in capital letters) and finally the portraits of the items have all changed, makes me think how the item creation is handle.

All aside, the game gives me the same sensation when I was playing it on the original PS and this is a good thing.

It's not worth buying again. I downloaded it to check it out for myself and it's basically the same game with different character portraits.
