This game is a must play, must hear and must feel.

"SuperNes version?" (by MabsKMK, 8 Nov 2021) [7/10]
I recently played the snes version of this game and the songs were very different. I wonder if i can find them on mod format.
Blair Witch Volume 1: Rustin Parr: Fan soundtrack
"Well, I didn't expect that!" (by Dysonans, 5 Nov 2021) [10/10]
Recently I came back to those Blair Witch games, also to first two movies. I played it back in the days, and those still holds up in my opinion, maybe not something I recommend for modern gamers, but those enjoying retro will be content. As I checking YouTube for original movie soundtrack I spot that fan game OST. I unpacked games files earlier so I can use music for my material about franchise which I plan to make. But there it is, Pyramid Head done that waaay back. He also does soundtracks for another two games, which isn't included on that site, at least yet. One thing makes me wonder - is He make names of tracks by himself, or source them somewhere? Also, what about order? At YouTube that seems to be random, wonder how it looks at Pyramid release. Sadly all I can find is dead links. Shame.
Also when I unpacked game archives I spot that one, full song named "Faded-remix". No idea what it is and I didn't think it I spot it at the game, it clearly doesn't belongs there. Shazam also can't find that. Maybe some hidden content? Interesting.
Firstly I think I'll contact him, but then I realise his last entry here has 16 years... Well, time goes by, and I wish all the best for him, good work!
And this is great, climatic soundtrack for a great, forgotten game. In fact game itself use music very sparingly and in clever ways. Just like good horror suppose to do. All that adds to the dark atmosphere of woods and small town forgotten by god. And for all those years I remembered that menu music, creepy and really scary, that itself creeps me out when I were young. Still kinda did. Also ambient from installation with children screaming were pretty scary, don't know if Kyle Richards made that (probably yes), but it fits that soundtrack well.
Also I'd like to thank for keeping Mirsoft page for so long, it is truly phenomenal, I'm glad that I find my way here!

"Masterpiece" (by NiKKo, 22 Sep 2021) [10/10]
I adore the game and the soundtrack suits it perfectly. I love it!
UFO: Enemy Unknown: Game rip
"Lots of silly reviews" (by steviant, 31 Jul 2021) [10/10]
These are MIDI files, they don't contain any information about how the instruments should sound, they contain only the equivalent of a musical score.
If you want it to sound like a DOS computer from 1982, then you'll need to download a special midi player made to sound that way - most people, most of the time want their MIDI files to sound like an expensive synthesizer module with realistic sounding instruments.
Here's a link to an OPL emulator for Windows... https://vgmrips.net/fo%22midi%20files%20from%20Enemy%20unknown%22%20(by%20povelitel,%2025%20Aug%202004)%20[8/10]%20This%20is%20very%20rare%20files,%20I've%20searched%20many%20sights%20until%20fourum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1935
Contrary to one of the other reviews, emulating an FM synthesizer is absurdly easy for any modern computer, FM synthesizers are not "analog" and are based on simple sine waves created by very cheap microchips, playing a sample is orders of magnitude harder.
The reason your MIDIs sound different is because the midi player is trying it's best to make them sound GOOD using modern samples and high quality resampling algorithms to try to make sure that saxophone really sounds like a saxophone.
Then some addled brain reminiscing about the worst synthesizers in the world complains because it doesn't sound like a 1980 Casiotone.
Guimo: Game rip
"Bitland" (by Warcow, 25 May 2021) [7/10]
I have never heard of this game before but I liked the title of it so I downloaded the soundtrack. A couple of pretty interesting passages and harmonies here. Nothing over the top by no means but pretty neat.
Edit: I just realised it is almost 18 years ago I wrote my first review here on Mirsoft (Grizzly was on the top of the reviews chart then with 23 reviews, if I remember it correctly) so a hooray for Mirsoft, myself and all other contributors on this site!
Tzar: The Burden Of The Crown: Game rip
"Thanks" (by kamo252, 17 Mar 2021) [10/10]

Thanks for the music, I will use it to listen on the long road or maybe in the videos thank you.
Star Control 2: Game rip
"Like trawling through ameteurish mods trying to find a good song" (by Domarius, 7 Jan 2021) [1/10]
That's what it felt like. I'm really surprised, after all the rave reviews. I have to agree with Darth Nefelim.
I guess the positive reviews come from people who have nostalgia for the game, and I get that. Totally with you on listening to songs that are actually not that good musically, but have nostalgia attached to it. But these comments left me with the impression that the soundtrack stands on its own. I'm just confused. Maybe there are like a handful of good ones in there that I missed amongst the rest.
It was like skipping through the worst of ModArchive or something, hearing song after song of monotone repetitive noises and badly repeating vocal samples, wondering why someone thought it was music and how long did they really spend bashing it together.
Bejeweled 2: Game rip
"I love the OST of this game" (by bruh, 21 Oct 2020) [10/10]
It's very inspiring, not the soundtrack by itself, but also the backgrounds of each level... I just feel like the marketing of Space X is not a rival for this game. This game makes me want to learn about astronomy and stuff, it is pretty cool.
Dune: Game rip
"Cyberpunk" (by Argento, 11 Oct 2020) [8/10]
Reminds me of Blade Runner, didn't see the Dune movie and didn't play the game, but the music is fantastic.
Duke Nukem 3D: Game rip
"Balls of steel" (by Argento, 11 Oct 2020) [9/10]
It has also the atomic edition tracks. Worth checking it out...you know.

"Better but shorter" (by Argento, 11 Oct 2020) [7/10]
Comparing to Descent I, must listen both.

Really up music! Ideal for a fps.

"Castle-like" (by Argento, 11 Oct 2020) [7/10]
Seems like there are 2 versions. Sound different than in game but I like it.

"Short nd sweet" (by Argento, 11 Oct 2020) [6/10]
Chimes, chorus, horrors lurking in the shadows.
