So I was playing NFS MW on my 360 yesturday after picking it up on sunday and noticed the music changes to something that literally sounds lifted from Rabins gone in sixty seconds when the cops start to chase you. Very cool and its good to see that someone at EA actually wanted to cut out the EA trax music (typical hip hop / punk fare) in favor of some decent film scoreesque action cues for running from the cops. So after some reasearch I found out that Rabin didnt do the score, his music programmer / producer Paul Linford however did. This is a trend Im beginning to notice and honestly scares me a bit, I was curious how the rest of you felt. Many game companies (namely EA) are wanting a specific sound for their games and instead of getting someone who sounds like that composer.. they just plop down the big bucks and hire that composer. I mean, there are any number of us who could emulate Rabins sound quite well and could have done it for worlds cheaper than Linford.. though my opinion as a gamer rather than a game composer is that it is DAMN COOL to hear an original media ventures score that adapts to the action on screen as I play.. and not some knockoff of Media Ventures... an honest to god media ventures score. Its cool and scary at the same time...hell, for a game like this my custom soundtrack of choice would have been rabins gone score anyway. Discuss.
