Bionic Commando (The Soundtrack)

The music for the next generation Bionic Commando honors the original game and manages to improve on already excellent tracks. The use of a live orchestra makes it sound very epic, and the ambient tracks make good use of synth effects. There aren't any real clunkers on the album, but some tracks stand above others. Obviously the main BC theme is there in all of its glory, but tracks like Flight Unlimited, Groeder's Anthem, Preparations, and Hunters of the FSA stand out. Note that there are some tracks from the game missing, mainly incidental and shorter alternate renditions of some themes. All of the biggies are here, though.
Extremely Amazing Music for an Extremely Okay Game
I enjoyed the Bionic Commando game, but I'll be the first to admit that it was rather mediocre. However, one of the best parts of the game was most definitely the music. This album is most definitely a must-buy
This is a great collection of tracks for the sequel to the original Bionic Commando. As a counterpoint to the techno remix soundtrack of Rearmed, these songs are all orchestrated and beautiful in their execution. The familiar themes from the series can be heard echoing in the distance, or trumpeting front and center. Makes a great addition to any video game music collection, or for anyone who is a fan of film scores.
