dark void. meh game but incredible soundtrack.


the newest bionic commando also had great music.

I've played Bionic Commando. Seriously underated game. R.I.P Grin Studios. I demoed Dark void, and thought it was meh, but the Music you showed me, and Nolan North, is encouraging me to try the game out a bit more.

Dark Void
It takes way too long to get good, but it does eventually get good. But not great, just good.

Great Gaming soundtracks...
How can you forget the legend, the myth...Halo...when you here a Halo soundtrack, there is no denying who it's for...


Bionic Commando was a great surprise. There is a steep learning curve but once you get the hang of it, it was fantastic. Incredible looking game as well. The game is $9.99 these days.


Splinter Cell Conviction has some great music. I played some areas over and over again because of the great soundtrack. Great game as well, one of my favorites this gen. Here's a clip of the Airfield level. It features some great game play and music, especially at the end.


Alan Wake had a great soundtrack. Here's the infamous Anderson farm...this is AWESOME...better if you actually play it.


MW 2 has it all, great single player and multi-player. Sold 20++ million copies and featured the music of legendary composer Hans Zimmer. Epic in every way...


There are too many to mention but one of my favorites all time that never gets mentioned...Turok Evolution. Incredible soundtrack and I for one really enjoyed the game as well. Last gen game for those that don't know.

Pretty crappy list.

I guess it would be VERY hard to narrow down something like that to only 10 games.

What about the Halo series?

Instant fail with no Castlevania.
And i am sure Metal Gear series has some great music and not to mention Secret of Mana series.

Final Fantasy VII and Ristar...
have the greatest soundtracks I've heard in a video game. They're perfect; so evocative and memorable.

Guiles theme
Because, it really does go with everything.

my favorite soundtrack was from castlevania sotn. It was pretty ace for its time, and it still is.

C'mon GTA Vice City has the best sound track ever. Hands down.

Sagetech  +   1510d ago
