Some examples of well-executed English-into-Italian translations:
LOCALIZED BY JINGLEBELL COMMUNICATIONS
Agatha Christie - Assassinio Sull'Orient Express (Murder on the Orient Express)
Agatha Christie - E non ne rimase nessuno (And then there were none)
Syberia (1 & 2)
The Black Mirror
Leisure Suit Larry Magna Cum Laude (great localization for such a bad game!!!!)
Half-Life (okay, it's not an adventure game but it's a big title)
LOCALIZED BY SYNTHESIS srl
Fahrenheit (a.k.a. Indigo Prophecy)
Broken Sword 1-2-3
All these titles have been translated & dubbed and are regarded among the best localizations ever. And - yes - they're way better than Season One translations....
