C - Crysis 2 OST - Multiple Composers
Crysis 2 is no doubt one brilliant game, it is so brilliant in fact that it was the most downloaded game in 2011. I didn't download it of course *iamhintingthatimwinking*. But what can NEARLY correlate with it's good story, visuals and overall gameplay is its soundtrack which pretty much moulds everything together.
What's so special about this album?
There were four people that actually helped in the composing of the pieces. You might even remember them; Borislav Slavov, Tilman Sillescu, Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe. With that lot of star studded composers it was no wonder how very hard it was to connect the album to a single person. Except for Hans Zimmer, some of his ones were (somehow) easy to spot.
Now if you haven't played the game then the soundtrack pretty much consists of music that you can fit onto lots of action scenes. There's also the times where a bit of humanity is involved, what I mean by humanity is that you would see how some people would react to a certain situation, which the music accompaines very nicely. Lest we forget that Crysis 2 also involves a lot of sneaking, as did the previous game so some of the tracks can pretty much keep you in that feeling of wanting to sneak up on someone.
All in all?
A very good and versatile album and if you're into a lot of putting yourself into the moment.
