I did, but they were still crap actors. I never played Shenmue 1, but saw the digest thing in Shenmue 2 (the subbed PAL DC version). Compared to the original acting in Shenmue 2, it made me want to die. I also couldn't play Grandia 2 for the same reasons.
I just can't stand bad 'merkin voice actors in Japanese games, just like with anime. It's just wrong.
