Included in the limited release of the import PS2 title, Berwick Saga Orchestrations is housed in a nice DVD-size case with a classy, marbleized look. Though at first glance, it appears to be perhaps an arranged CD, the unfortunate news is that it is not. Most of the tracks are lifted directly from the OST, with the exact same synth, instrumentation and track time. There are a few ‘Limited’ versions of the songs, which are slightly enhanced or lengthened versions, or are medleys of two or more tracks.
It’s a nice bonus, to be sure, and a beautiful package to look at, but don’t spend too much looking for it. If you happen to buy the LE version of the game, then by all means enjoy this little sampler. But if you are on the hunt for a fine listen, look to the full three disc soundtrack instead.
