Had to be Silpheed...that game rocked my sox.
Lords of Thunder
Sonic CD (Japanese soundtrack please)
Man, some great shumps where released for the system. Jaguar XJ220 used to be my fav, but it hasn't aged well.
The smell of scorched oil hangs in the air as a premonition of danger, while the engine gloriously shouts its war cry...
Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.

My favorite has to be Formula One Beyond the Limit. Awesome racing game for the time. Great graphics, sound and the season mode was fun. It was amazing how much you could tweek on your car. I still play it every now and then.
"You could have a bumper car, bumping.
This amusement never ends..."
With the games I have right now, it has to be Double Switch. This game has a good difficulty for an FMV game and it has a cool plot.
snatcher, lunar 2, android assault, silpheed (the effects are great, but it's a bit too simple at it's core) and final fight.
Sonic CD (Jap Soundtrack, not the retarded US one)
Eternal Champions: Challenge from the Dark Side
I don't get everyone's beef with the US soundtrack.
I love em' both (US and Jap)... I'm more partial to the US one as I grew up with it (Sonic CD was the REASON I bought a Sega CD back on the day Sonic CD was released... man I remember walking into Electronics Boutique and demanding my copy!).
The Jap one is fun to listen to and matches the elegant speed of the game very well... but I like the future tunes of the US one more as they match the atmosphere a whole lot better.
Das war der Hammer.
The US soundtrack felt too subtle and uninspired, and sometimes not even the production felt top-notch. The future versions barely had any differences at all (Save for a select few like Stardust Speedway) compared to the original soundtrack which had much more creative remixes. I don't know why, but as soon Spencer Nielsen started working with redbook audio his music took a big punch. The cartridge version of Spider-Man Vs. The Kingpin sounded a lot cooler than the completely out-of-place buttrock present in the Mega CD version.
To my knowledge the only cartridge game Spencer Nilsen ever worked on was Sonic Spinball, which is one of the worst sounding Genesis games ever.
Spencer Nielsen did an AMAZING job with the ECCO games!
Das war der Hammer.
Yes, Spencer Neilson's work on Ecco is fantastic and Sonic CD's is similar. I just don't know if it fits that well with a Sonic game, but it's still good music.
It's not that his work is uninspired, but it is subtle, which is why it's perfect for a game like Ecco but not the adrenaline pumping tracks we're used to in a Sonic title. There's no doubting he's a great composer though.
His version of the Sonic CD soundtrack is great. People only prefer the Japanese soundtrack because they have "Japan = bettar" in their brains.
Ecco CD 1 and 2 were incredible. Too bad that Spency-poo is now regulated to scoring extremely cheesey and cheap direct-to-video movies.
As for the Japanese soundtrack to Sonic CD, to me it has a bunch more energy that fits the game. Having a chorus of women sing "Doo wee dooo wop" and the like is not appropriate. And the PAST tunes are the same in both versions, making the US stuff fit even less well into the game. So in this case yes, Japan = better. Certainly not in all cases, though.
It still is FAR from my favorite Sonic game. It's very choppy and slowdown is everywhere. It is very unoptimized.
I was hoping someone would say it!Originally Posted by j_factor
And come on... the women saying "doo wee doo wop"... what about the "Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh... oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh..." from the lil' kids in the first zone of the Jap soundtrack.
Jap Tidal Tempest music is really good.
But most of it sounds too 80's technoey... along with that really gay guy singing... oh God does that just sound cheesey... cheesier then "Sonic Boom".
In all though I enjoy both of them a lot.
Das war der Hammer.
Yes, that is the ONLY possible reason to enjoy the Japanese version more. I must just be retarded or something. Otherwise I would OBVIOUSLY prefer the US music. Japan is "battar".Originally Posted by j_factor
It's just a single cheer after a "woo", they don't say "Oh yeeeaahh". I agree it doesn't need to be there, but it's not too horribly bad. It sure beats the lounge music on the first stage of the US version by about a factor of 10 billion! The 1st level music in the US version is near-vomit inducing. The rest of the US music ranges from tolerable to good. That's not to say every track in the JAP version is a winner.what about the "Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh... oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh..." from the lil' kids in the first zone of the Jap soundtrack.
I am just wondering why they wasted the money to redo the music when it was already fine. That's Sega of America for ya.
