Riverhillsoft also published Prince of Persia in Japan. Their ports to the Japanese NEC PC-9801 and PC Engine CD platforms featured improved graphics (introducing the Prince's classic "turban and vest" appearance) and a new Red Book audio soundtrack. They also ported it to other computers and video game consoles, helping the game become a worldwide success.
Nishiura soon started work on Dark Cloud, an early PlayStation 2 RPG released in 2000. Though he had never composed a video game before, he developed concepts for tracks by carefully reading the scenario and discussing ideas with the designers. Much of the soundtrack comprised of straightforward tracks inspired by other traditional RPGs, including tender setting themes, edgy battle tracks, and ambient dungeon tracks. Nevertheless, he also expressed his own personality by incorporating Celtic influences and a colourful acoustic palette on a number of tracks, including the catchy, well-received main theme. Due to budget limitations, Nishiura was also expected to handle all other audio aspects on the project, including sound effects design, sound editing, and sound programming. It was a huge responsibility for one man, but he persevered to produce an effective accompaniment to the game and developed expertise in all aspects of game sound creation as a result. The final game was well-received across the world and sold over a million copies.
Chris Greening I've contributed to websites related to game audio since 2002. In this time, I've reviewed over a thousand albums and interviewed hundreds of musicians across the world. As the founder and webmaster of VGMO -Video Game Music Online-, I hope to create a cutting-edge, journalistic resource for all those soundtrack enthusiasts out there. In the process, I would love to further cultivate my passion for music, writing, and generally building things. Please enjoy the site and don't hesitate to say hello!
The critically acclaimed remake may seem like the best option for modern gamers to play Resident Evil 2, but the original PlayStation 1 iteration offers an irreplaceable level of nostalgia for past players, and the horror still holds up for those experiencing the classic game for the first time.
Following the success of the aforementioned Dino Crisis, Capcom released a sequel just over a year later, in September 2000. The game made some noticeable changes to the original's gameplay formula, though, with a greater emphasis on action and combat throughout. The increased focus on combat reduced the fear factor of the original, and the game is more action-adventure than survival horror but Dino Crisis 2 is certainly still a scary game.
A remake of the original Persona. Created by Atlus, it was released in 2009 for the PlayStation Portable handheld system. It contains all of the content that was excised from the original North American release of Revelations: Persona.
Xenosaga I+II is a Nintendo DS re-imagining of the original Xenosaga titles released on the Playstation 2. Wholly redesigned in a sprite and anime style, it covers the major plot points of both titles.
OverBlood 2 is an ambitious narrative-focused game for the original PlayStation that tries to combine exploration, platforming, puzzle solving, real-time combat, and even a little racing. It shares little in common with the original entry in the series.
The score, too, is fantastic, sounding exactly like the soundtrack to a state fair from beyond the gates of hell. Any element of The Funhouse could be the icing on the 80s horror cake, but we'll give credit to the score, there. 2b1af7f3a8
