How much does it bother non-natives to play a badly translated game? Speaking for myself only, usually not much. I may notice blatant grammatical mistakes (and miss the subtle ones) or some odd phrases, but that’s never been a reason to stop playing. Hell, I finished The Last Door. Sarcastic

I’ve read two reviews of Murder in Tehran’s Alleys 1933 (2013). Wow, an Iranian whodunnit! Right up my alley. AG wrote a lot about the atrocious translation and gave it only 1.5 stars. The other review concentrated on the good points, mentioned the bad translation in passing and advised players to regard the more incomprehensible sentences as puzzles to be solved!  So I decided to check out a youtube walkthrough before buying the game. Well, AG was right. Here’s one sad example: 

Primary guess: killing of some of children are important and some of them are unvaluable and unfortunately they have taken in to account as a fun for murder.

I haven’t bought the game. But the graphics look nice and any Iranian game deserves to be the AGSotD for one day!

Oh God, that’s bad.
It’s like they just ran it through Google Translate or something…

I once watched a Japanese action movie with subtitles like this, but at least that was a comedy/parody that was so bad it was good, and the moronic subtitles only enhanced the humour. Tongue

The reviews to this game seem to state that the game underneath is worthwhile. Maybe there’s a fan translation in the works?

The graphics certainly look ok…
