You don’t need to be a game music fan or even a gamer to enjoy “Anima: Gate of memories”; you only have to be a dreamer.
Darkness, tension and a bit of hope go hand in hand and create a chilling and addictive atmosphere.
“Blues and bullets” is a trip through the dark alleys of a misty neighborhood full of pleasures and dangers.
I think no cue title expresses my feelings for this score better than “A long walk stills our hearts”.
“Beyond: two souls” is the kind of score I will never forget.

As this score end, I smile satisfied and somewhere 28 or 29 years ago, the younger me, lost in a game later at night than he should have been up, is startled by a noise in his room.
Melodic, emotional and with killer choirs, both epic and tender, as its backbone, “Lords of the fallen” left me very satisfied and inspired
Fresh from the lackluster experience I had with volume 1, I dove into “Assassin’s Creed: Unity – volume 2”. This second part was written by Sarah Schachner, a composer I hadn’t heard about until now. The start is promising: “Rather death than slavery” is an enjoyable electronic based cue, with a female voice in […]

This "World of Warcraft" score is one of the most exciting scores I've heard all year.
“Civilization” is the crown achievement of 2014. It’s a majestic composition and a score that 20 years from now will be regarded as one of the best ever.

“Far cry 4” shines for me through its atmospheric cues
In a year filled with amazing game scores, Trevor Morris’s “Dragon Age – Inquisition” shines and will end up among the best of them
In a year dominated by epic and majestic game score releases, the Commandos collection is the stealth green beret who doesn’t make much noise, but is the most effective.
