Theme music

Post by zeltak » Fri Oct 10, 2014 3:59 pm

I'm a little disappointed on the theme music we can hear on the compatibility test. There are good things, there are some similarities to the awesome Conan the Barbarian theme and that I like. But overall I think this lacks personality. LoG1's theme, you can't mistake it for anything else, it's very strong and it has that uplifting atmosphere. I could listen it for ages. But for the new theme, it has that generic feel to it. I don't have any impulse to listen it more than I have to. Oh well, or maybe it just has to grow on me, I don't know. Rant out ;)

I thought like you the first time I heard it. Main theme might be "stronger". However, after some more listening, I really loved it.

It's quite a shift from Stakula's theme but after getting a bit into the game (doing the final beta tests now) and it's setting i really like it. A nice match to the atmosphere of the game.

Our family watched the compatibility demo while the music was on and we were really, really impressed. It was epic and fit the scenery (kind of nautical at times). It was just fun to listen to it. And the continually moving waves were fun to watch, too.

A huge kudos to the musicians already, and we haven't even played the game yet. Well done!

At first, I did not appreciate it that much. After 3 times, I cannot stop listening to the compatibility test !!

It's a grower.

At first listen, it seemed like a Conan the Barbarian rip-off, but actually it has a distinct personality all of its own.
