Title speaks for itself, hard to follow the damn story without it.

I'm sure it only applies to a small minority but still. The option should be there at least. I have NO idea what's going on, just sort of running around an impressed with the graphics and gameplay style. Bar the part where the game only froze once.

><

WTB Subtitles pretty please ^^

Especially annoying when the camera angle changes and the sound gets muffled. "Say what?"

That's weird, I've got no problems following the conversations, and my native language isn't even English, but Danish...

i have no problem hearing anything at all ... subtitles i feel are unnecessary ... i mean seriously you could hear a lady crying for help from behind 2 buildings in a crowded street with people begging you for money while a cutscene going on...

subtitles i feel are unnecessary

I think they should be there during all the story cut-scenes, all the investigation cut-scenes and all the post-assassination cut-scenes (ie. any cut-scene with anything to do with the progression of the story)

There are one or two deaf/partially deaf people on the forum who can't fully enjoy the game because of the absence of subtitles.

I think it is unfair to alienate these people when almost every single other game/dvd have subtitles.

The conversations were very slow and clear voices, I don't see how it was hard to follow the story.

That's besides the point.

I don't care if its slow and clear. I still don't pick up or rather comprehend the sounds. Sure, I can HEAR it, But I don't understand it. Its like black and white movies. You can see the picture, but it's not colour, you can't grasp the full detail of it.

That's what my hearing is like. Subtitles helps put the colour into the black and white image.
That's why we want subtitiles. So we can follow the story in a colourful image.

I have no problem with hearing, it's just when the camera angle sometimes makes the sound muffled and you might miss a few words.
