I'm digging this one. It's a slow methodical DnB drum beat that's really slow, but still has a good danceable groove to it. :) If you remember this track, it's from the original Metal Gear on the NES and MSX.

Yep. Dig it yall.

I can't quite remember, but...

Is this theme not from the NES version of the game? I mean, it sounds nice, but the MSX version used "Theme of Tara" and this sneaking theme was in the NES.

do the alert from msx metal gear

msx rocks


to upbeat for metal gear and to be truthful i dident hear any metal gear in it sounds more megamanish to me

Clearly you never played any of the original Metal Gear games from 1987 onward (or the bonus game content in MGS3:S) ... either that or you just flatly don't remember it, as this remix contains the melody from the original in a rather blunt and solid form. The original basic/simple midi song applied to a new genre, a slow DnB style with more aggressive synthesizers.

The song as it remains in this remix is largely (and I mean LARGELY) left intact. Check the source material if you need proof. Keywords: Jungle music, MSX Metal Gear. Stage 1. Etc. etc. Youtube it or check vgmusic.com.

I appreciate you leaving feedback, but again, I think you're thinking of the Metal Gear Solid series of games which clearly have a different musical style from the original MSX version that was released in 1987.

That said I don't think your rating is justified, and I think those that have heard the source tune will agree.


Its the first Level btw
Oh and i like it


I never played the original metal gears but this track has a nice beat to and it does have that MGS'ish feel to it lol
