Listening to this is like listening to the next soundtrack of the recent 'Dark Knight' Movie Trilogy. If you heard this without knowing what it was written for you would still say "that's Batman music" straight away!! This is way above what you would call a 'video game score'!! With pounding drums and screaming violins, and all sorts of creepy stuff for the named 'bad guys', this is just brilliant to listen to on it's own, (you tend not to take much notice of music in the background when you are playing video games!) I can pretty much say, without a shadow of a doubt, that Christopher Drake will be writing 'Movie' soundtracks ALL the time after this superb effort!!!
After playing the game for an hour, I really enjoyed the music so I brought the soundtrack. It is one of the best soundtracks I have heard for a long time. It has everything in it from slow to fast to exciting! I would certainly recommend both the Game and the Soundtrack!
What a great soundtrack, mixing familiar themes from cariois sources including rhe movies. I haven't been impressed with Drakes other work, mainly animated movie score's but hace had had this on not stop since purchased.
