frostcircus's reviews:

    Dune 2000: Game rip
    "Disappointingly soul-less" (by frostcircus, 11 Jul 2004) [4/10]
    About half of this soundtrack consists of updated versions of tracks from Klepacki's excellent Dune 2 soundtrack. He claims that the way the tracks sound in this is how they were supposed to sound in the first place.

    Simply put, he's wrong. I don't believe a word of it. Aside from the boring production, he's changed notes, chords, and generally made everything sound much more 'normal.' None of the new material is worth mentioning, either. It's just entirely bland.

    So I suppose it fits the game perfectly. Just like the game, it's not unpleasant, but it's not memorable, and to be honest, it's not worth your time.

    Dune 2: Game rip
    "Great music, but a bit weird on GM..." (by frostcircus, 11 Jul 2004) [9/10]
    Easily one of the best game soundtracks I've ever heard; sadly these MIDIs do not do it justice. Given the limited technology, the game did a great job with its custom sounds (though my friend had to play with the sound off because the hihats sounded exactly like his alarm clock's buzzer), but when played on a GM setup, most of the tracks just sound ...wrong.

    My score is based on the music itself. I set up my old PC just to install this and record the music on my newer system - I can't think of any other games I've done this for. :)
