You have good music but could you please put the skyrim theme on. The one that starts when the main menu comes up. Lots of people would appreciate it. Thx
Not a bad selection of music, i wouldnt say this should be representing the "greatest video game music" because there are a tonne of songs that deserve this kind of attention over some titles such as BOTH the Modern Warfare themes which are kinda boring in my opinion.
Essentially a big selection of popular tracks from popular console games in the last 3 years. (which is funny because they called the 1942 theme the "Battlefield 2 theme" even though the exact theme is a copy from the 1942 track. (The bf2 theme is different go look yourself))
Praise going out to Suicide Mission track From Mass Effect 2.. (Also incorrectly labeled as ME1)
Angry Birds theme,
Bioshock and the GTA4 theme.
Good album, not worth $17 for digital copy.. $10 maybe.
Some good tracks but not the most impressive compilation
There are a few good tracks in there, but cmon, two Call of Duty themes? Splinter Cell Conviction (one of the worst SC's ever made), Angry Birds? Hardly the greatest pieces of audio to come out of the gaming industry. I also question the inclusion of MGS2's theme, as personally both MGS3 and MGS4's scores were far superior. The absence of an Acecombat track is also greatly disturbing, with Unsung War, Zero, Megalith, Chandelier, Rebirth, all far more worthy titles than most of the tracks here. What of Portals iconic little tunes?
Be selective with this lot, for the "Greatest Video Game Music" this ain't. There are some decent tracks in there, but theres no need to buy the entire album.
