I've always loved Star Crusader. Awesome space combat simulator game, very old, played on DOS. Sure, the graphics ain't that great, but that's not the good part. The strategy, the plotline, the sides you can choose mid-game, all that make SC a great game.

Back to the song. You hear this in every simulated skirmish you personally set up for yourself...except in the game it's a midi sequence, not a metal piece. I personally made a cover of that midi sequence because I loved it that much. So listen, and enjoy!

EDIT: If you're going to vote, the least you could do is accompany it with a review. I've no idea anymore how many times I've said this, so I've said it too many times to assume that most people on here have any common sense left.

EDIT 2: Submitted some updated audio. I made a couple mistakes, and some of it didn't sound right, so...

I just think it's so cool to find someone else out there who not only remembers and likes this game, but also goes and makes something like this. I enjoyed this cover. I like that you kept, and actually amplified, the energy behind the track while making it unique and not just a modern copy of the original.

It was definitely more difficult than most covers that I could've made. I had to do everything by ear, because there was no midi or nothing that I could look at.

Probably what annoys me the most about science fiction is the number of space operas out there, of which Star Wars is one. Most shows and movies make near-exclusive use of classically-trained musicians using classical instruments, which, while it works, is also done way too much. If the people that made these SciFi shows and movies used more modern instruments like the electric guitar to the effect that I have, it would appeal to a much larger audience. For crying out loud, look at the Iron Man movies. They have the electric guitar in their OSTs, and look at how successful they are.

I'm glad you liked what I did with this piece. It may have been a few years since I'd done it, but reviews like these tell me I did right in doing what I did and continuing to do what I do the way I do.

Thanks for the review!

finally

The song doesn't have a bass kick going, boom, boom, boom, throughout the whole song. As far as the cover goes, it's pretty accurate to the original but at the same time it isn't. In fact, I like this much more than the original because it has more energy behind it and it really brings out the "bounce" in the song. You can actually hear all the instruments unlike the old one where that terrible space synthesizer sound overpowers everything else.

I remember playing a little bit of this game when I was a kid and I thought it was badass. Seeing it now though... Time was not good to it. I don't know if you can find these games anymore but look up, rage of mages and Shogo. I still play Rage of Mages once in a while and it's just as much fun now as it was back in the 90's. Shogo is a game about mechs as well as a bunch of FPS action with lots of gore which = awesome.

You seriously played that game? Wow, and here I was thinking that it was unduely unpopular. Obviously not, and thank God for that.

Thanks for the review!
