Overview

Over the years, video games have evolved from the simple platforming adventures of Mario and Luigi into cinematic experiences that match the big-budget blockbusters of the silver screen. Looking to take this idea one step further, the London Philharmonic Orchestra adapts some of the most recognizable songs from some of gaming's biggest franchises to the grandeur of the orchestra on The Greatest Video Game Music, Vol. 2. With a selection that spans games big and small as well as old and new, the breadth of songs covered here is certainly impressive. Whether it's the main theme of the SNES classic Chrono Trigger, "Never Forget/Peril" from Microsoft's epic Halo, or "Adventure" from the mind-bending and wildly innovative indie platformer Fez, this compilation has a little something for every gamer, no matter what his or her preferred genre might be. While those unfamiliar with the source material will certainly be able to appreciate the care and skill put into the scores for these games, this compilation will definitely find a good home with enthusiasts looking to add a little extra culture to their favorite pastime.
