The Underrated Files: Video Game Soundtracks You (Probably) Missed

Forbes: At the PAX East Composer’s Panel, an interesting question was posed to composer Kevin Riepl: aside from Aliens: Colonial Marines, had he ever poured so much time and work into a soundtrack only to have the game suck or go largely unnoticed? When a game does as poorly as Aliens: Colonial Maries did, critically, it’s very rare that people then attempt to hunt down the soundtrack. Likewise, when a game releases to a mediocre or lukewarm fanfare, the soundtrack rarely sees publication. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Dante's Inferno, Hunted: The Demon's Forge, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
