Here's the place to name those games with rockin' soundtracks besides Jet Moto! By rockin, i'm talkin mean and/or guitar heavy, no fairy and fruitcake music allowed! THE SOUNDTRACK MUST BE EXCLUSIVE TO THE GAME, NO LICENSED CRAP LIKE TODAYS GAMES! I know you all know some of them I don't....but here's a few I know...I'll post them as i remember them.
In no particular order :
-Lords of Thunder (TG-16, Sega CD....THE MOST "shred" soundtrack of ALL TIME, and ties with Jet Moto for me) -Twisted Metal 1+2 (PS1, Chuck Myers never fails to deliver) -ESPN Extreme Games/1Xtreme + 2Xtreme (PS1) -Spawn : The Eternal ( PS1....as bad as the game was, the fight music was great!....and also Cieran19's favorite game of all time lmao) -Wild Woody (Sega CD.....soundtrack written by Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal) -Nuclear Strike (PS1.....what a theme song!) -Gex (3DO, PS1....again, fantastic shredding title screen theme) -Android Assault : The Revenge of Bari-Arm (Sega CD...a must have for Sega CD) -Warhawk (PS1, Chuck Myers again!) -Gauntlet Legends (PS1, N64....Skorne's Battle Music is SICK!) -Final Fantasy VII (PS1....the boss battles were great) -Legend of Dragoon (PS1....this whole soundtrack kicked ASS, some intense battle tunes)
Well, you all take it from here....If i remember any more they'll be up!
Cmon fellas! There's gotta be more of those games you know out there! ;D
Lol. Well there aren't too many for me. I do love some of the music in Call of Duty MW2. Most of that is composed by Hans Zimmer who I think is a genius. Though I couldn't find any downloads or youtubes of my favorite song in the game, which is the split screen menu I think. Just has a nasty beat.
Another war game that I thought had some great themes was Medal of Honor Frontline. Just sets a really appropriate tone for a WW2 game. Kind of reminiscent of the movie Saving Private Ryan. Here's a link of the main menu theme
Other than that, a lot of what I like has already been posted. The TM2 theme is flat out nasty, and I love Slickrock Gorge from JM2. Seems to me like a lot of games simply take music from actual artists and insert it into their menus nowadays (especially sports games).
Back in my Dreamcast days I played a lot of Marvel VS Capcom and liked being Captain America sometimes just because his theme was awesome. Here's a link to that.
But yeah, if I think of anything else I'll post it up. Haven't thought too much about it.
Wow, Spawn and Nuclear Strike bring back some memories. I remember I could barely get anywhere in Spawn just because it confused the crap out of me. Anyway I can't believe this whole time I've forgotten about probably my favorite video game soundtrack...Need for Speed 2. That game was just awesome. But yeah here are a couple tracks.
I couldn't find the song alone for the intro so I just put up the video itself.

Not surprised, Bear. Spawn SUCKED other than the soundtrack. A real Spawn game...go with the SNES version(got that one too ). It's hard as balls, but it's a great beat em up, and the controls don't blow.
