Soundtracks Update: Valkyria Chronicles, More
07.05.08 - 2:21 AM
Yesterday we promised some OSTs to balance out the all-piano-arranged update. Well, here it is.
After reviewing these two import RPGs, editor James Q. Clark took on the soundtracks for the respective titles. First up is Hitoshi Sakimoto's Senjou no Valkyria ~ Gallian Chronicles (a.k.a. Valkyria Chronicles), a two-disc collection with excellent music. The other is Star Ocean: First Departure OST. It's also good, but sadly, it doesn't offer much beyond the soundtrack printed by Team Entertainment a few years prior.
As a bonus, I wrote up a soundtrack review for Compile Heart, RED, and Idea Factory's PlayStation 3 RPG Record of Agarest War (a.k.a. Agarest Senki). The battle themes for this OST are surprisingly powerful. Be sure to check it out.
What's to come for RPGFan Soundtracks? Your guess is as good as mine! Remember that you can always submit reviews for your favorite soundtracks, new or old.
