Soundtrack Review: Modern Warfare 2

Hans Zimmer Goes To Virtual War

 

When playing a video game as much as Modern Warfare 2, some of the musical beats may be engrained in their brain. And even though these beats may be short, they are there. The Modern Warfare 2 soundtrack expands upon these familiar beats into full-length tracks. The results are surprisingly good.

Most/all of the music comes from the underrated portion of the game. From the opening title credits music, to when you first walk out in a war-torn Washington DC, to the momentous end credits. The score completes the game, and since it's done by Hans Zimmer, you know it's going to be highly professional, and at least some of it is going to be memorable. I'll say this about the soundtrack, is that it certainly fits the mood of the game. It's the type of music you'd find in a war film, and action movie, or a fast-paced drama. In fact, the only problem I have with the soundtrack is the title naming. It would be nice to know which track is from which particular scene. If you know the game well enough, you can guess, but it would be nice to know specifics.

Overall, if you found yourself a fan of the music found in Modern Warfare 2, by all means check this out. They didn't have to put out this product, but they listened to the fans and gave us a great, complete package. Bravo Infinity Ward, Hans Zimmer, etc.
