In this edition of Game Soundtracks For Your Soul I am looking back at the music of two of the best multi-player games of my early gaming life. My brother was much better at video games than I was but often he was player 2, and we both drank heavily from the Nintendo Kool-Aid jar. We spent hours playing many two player games on Nintendo and Super Nintendo, but two in particular stood out musically. One is in my opinion, a Capcom classic and only recently did I learn that they made a sequel. The other game is now one of the rarest Super Nintendo titles and one of the most treasured games in my cartridge collection.
Here are my thoughts on the music of Chip and Dale’s Rescue Rangers composed by Harumi Fujita, and the music of Metal Warriors by Eric Swanson.
