Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "There was a time when music in video games consisted of only a few blips and bleeps. Over the past ten years, video game soundtracks have become more of a necessity in regards to setting the mood and feeling of a particular game. Of all the genres of music out there, none have been as underused as metal. Developers always seem to take the safe route when crafting a soundtrack for an action game. The standard has been electronica, rock and hip hop. Modern metal bands are capable of evoking immense amounts of emotion from its listeners and it would seem that the genre is just dying to be used properly in an exciting action game."
