We didn't really get a chance to review Mars: War Logs, but it came out back in April, and, apart from some translation issues to english, it was apparently fairly good. So now, Spiders Studio have taken the english dub from the top. I'll let Luc Heninger, the big cheese at Spider, explain it in his own words:

"Mars contains a vast amount of dialog, even by RPG standards. The plot has numerous strands and the dialog often has many variants to mirror the hero’s changes in reputation. The tight deadlines between the game release dates meant that the initial English translation lacked depth and contained a number of errors; it was then sent to the recording studio, making the job of the actors extremely difficult. The actual game was thoroughly tested and released with very few bugs on PC, but unfortunately the procedures for the audio and text QA failed and allowed many English localization issues to slip through. We realized the extent of the problem after seeing the first feedback from the press and gamers. The result was so far removed from what we usually produce that we took the decision to halt the submission process for the console version, which was due for release only weeks after the PC title. We have re-written the game text and dialog and, of course, recorded the actors again, replacing the sections that weren’t true to the characters in Mars. All these problems will therefore be fixed in the console version. An update is now available for players with the PC game, and we have also incorporated the new audio in the PC versions on the various download sites."

So, here's a sample of the new VA and better translation the game now has to offer!

The game has been out for a while, and it's found on Steam, from Focus, or Gamersgate, among other outlets.
