This week I am looking back at the music of three games I played on the Sega Dreamcast, one of my favorite consoles and *SPOILER ALERT* one of the winners of Wired’s Video Game Console Wars which had me floored in laughter and a huge grin on my face.
The music of these games are at all from different ranges of the sound spectrum. The first soundtrack is beautiful, awe inspiring, and epic in scope and a great score by two composers Tim Follin and Attila Heger. The second is much darker and has a unique creepy, abandoned carnival grounds sound composed by the late Betrand Eluerd. The third is an cover EP album by Stemage of Noriyuki Iwadare’s music from a masterpiece of a JRPG which is coming soon in remastered form on Steam!
These are my thoughts of the soundtracks to Ecco The Dolphin: Defender of the Future, Evil Twin: Cyprien’s Chronicles and Stemage’s Frets of Valmar: Grandia II .
