Region Differences


US and European version deleted a voice clip at the beginning of the first phase of the Allied pilot saying "Goddamn sightseers! Time to go back to hell!", although it can be heard in the Voice test.


The Japanese version comes with Japanese subtitles for the Cutscene after Stage 1 is cleared. Oddly, other Cutscenes that have voices do not.
