Looks like it's a low resolution font being scaled up. Is it a bitmap font?

If the font is size 12, and you're drawing it as size 30, it will be very blurry. You need to import the same size font as you're drawing for best results. Ie: if the label wants a size 30 font, then you should be using a size 30 font.

Also make sure that you're not on the "Fastest" quality. It downgrades texture quality.
