I thought the music in contracts could have been good, but it was a little too sparse for me.
It is really strange that no one mention the Might & magic series. I like every sound track in game cd and listen to them every now and then.
Baldurs gate 2 has some nice music.
If there ever is a game better than fallout, baldurs gate 2 has to be it. Music rules.
The chronocommandoes in 2 were fun though. I never could finish Red Revolution without nukes and Kurovs.
My top five favourite soundtracks are:
1. Final Fantasy Series
2. Fallout Series
3. Hitman 2
5. Medieval: Total War
Fallout (of course)
Baldur's Gate 2
Final Fantasy 8/Tactics (Cant decide)
Dune 2 (Westwood's original RTS)
Command and Conquer Red Alert (Hell March, of course)
Descent 2 (both the midi-style and the stuff on the CD)
Warcraft 2 (put it on a tape to listen to when I mowed lawns as a kid)
Anything Star Wars (even the remixed stuff in Force Commander, I'm not that much of a purist/fanboy)
Legend of the Mystical Ninja
Anything done by Square (except FFX-2)
River City Ransom
Anything on the XBOX that lets me use stuff I've put on the hard drive
Once again, anything Star Wars (even Shadows of the Empire)
i'd say (in no paticular order):
Tony hawks series (THPS3 best)
GTA series (vice city best)
zelda series (OOT best)
soul reaver series
return to casle wolfenstein
Shenmue 1 and 2. 'Nuff said.
Best game soundtrack.
So what game does everyone think has the best soundtrack? I'd have to give this to "Tropico" for having the great Bachata style music which was slotted in so perfectly with the play element of Tropico.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Hands down. The 80s ruled.
I'd have to go with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. Best song selection I've ever seen in a game.
Or Duke Nukem 3D. Megadeth, woohoo!
Jesper Kyd pwns big time.
I also oft remember the theme to Terminal Velocity. Mmmm, adrenaliny.
Here are some suggestions.
-Final Fantasy 3 (6 in Japan)
-Final Fantasy Tactics
-Mega Man X
-Halo 1 & 2
-Fallout 1 & 2
Quite a limited list...I dont play as much as you guys.
The Vault Dweller
Lumines - (PSP) has lots of great music that changes when you play adequately.
Unreal - (PC) this has to be one of the nicest game soundtracks ever.
The Dig - (PC) may be that it's a bit uninspired at times, but it's nice to listen to.
Ultima Underworlds - (PC/Midi) a few select pieces of music from this game really ooze that sad "imprisoned & exploring dungeons and caves" feeling.
Double Dragon (NES): midi guitar solo in stage 1. Truly the most brilliant piece of game music composition to date.
Double Dragon 3 (NES): entire stage 2. Pure genius, no other way of describing it, you can just feel the presence of a vintage moog in the composers studio.
Bomberman 5 (SNES): most of the music throughout the game. Some sort of strange experimental hip hop genius must have realized at some point how to create the perfect bass, and that it needed to be in a snes game. Awesome.
Battletoads (NES): Everybody knows this tune, everybody loves this tune. Nuff said y'all.
Mashed (XBOX): the menu tune probably has the grooviest bassline ever conceived in a videogame. Note how you do need a good soundsystem to fully appreciate it (same goes for BM 5 actually)
On a side note, visit the VG music archive.
Anoter vote for Deus Ex- I actually went to the trouble to find a place where the original .umx music files had been made into .mp3's.
Also, Halo was the only other game that actually made me stop and listen to the music it was so fantastic. Sadly, I don't know of a place to get those tracks for free. You probably have to buy them.
And there must be a mention of the later Grand Theft Auto series for their liscensed soundtracks- lisetning to 'Thriller' while jacking cars was a pretty sublime experience.
Also, Hidden and Dangerous and Mafia both had fantastic music scores. I think, for Hidden and Dangerous 2 (which is an awesome game in it's own right, btw), they actually got an orchestra to do the score. Great stuff.
