I acctually like the way it sounds, very old-school VG style. The audio as a whole has very good structure and flow. Very deserving of a place in an action game as background music. #1 reason I enjoyed this was progression. It builds energy very well and has this "We are going to kick some ass" feeling. Therefore this audio is also kickass xD. I'll check out the original as well.
I might start calling you the VG Audio master in a sec, lol.
I only call it VG because--you guessed it--my software sucks. Had I put it in General Rock, this song would be woefully low in the rankings.
Thanks for the review!
