Article: OC ReMix: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Official Soundtrack
"Working with the OC ReMix crew has been one of the most rewarding aspects of working on SF HD Remix, truly making the game a community effort. These guys are part of the meat and potatoes of what makes the Street Fighter fanbase such a lasting part of the gaming industry. Upon contacting them, they were able to turn out product on short notice, with high quality, and were very open to any changes that we required. They worked above and beyond our expectations and I'm hoping that we'll be able to work together in the future." – Rey Jimenez, Associate Producer, Capcom Entertainment
OverClocked ReMix was proud to work with Capcom to develop a new, remixed soundtrack for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. While video game companies have worked with fans in the past, HD Remix is the first major video game with a completely fan-made soundtrack. More than twenty gamers from around the world contributed remixes of the original Street Fighter games' music for inclusion in the updated game, in styles including jazz, hip-hop, reggaeton, spaghetti western, garage rock, big beat and electronica.
Originally based on Blood on the Asphalt, OC ReMix: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Official Soundtrack features Jivemaster, AE, Prozax, Palpable, Malcos, José the Bronx Rican, Sixto Sounds, djpretzel, The Grammar Club, Big Giant Circles, Justin R. Coleman, Shael Riley, Vurez, zircon, Red Tailed Fox, Another Soundscape, Neostorm, Mazedude & McVaffe!

"Once your eyes have adjusted to the new Street Fighter flair, you start getting a kick out of the remixed theme tunes. Every Street Fighter fan has a favourite, and having brought on UDON for the visuals, Capcom in its wisdom signed up OverClocked ReMix to handle the audio. What OCR has done with the classic Ryu, Guile and Ken beats, again, remains true to the original material, but injects a thumping modern feel that has your heart racing all the way to that fierce Shoryuken finish. Special mention has to go to Fei Long's new R&B stage theme, which had us returning to the Bruce Lee wannabe's home for the tune alone." - Matt Edwards, Eurogamer.net
"We're pretty hot on the Fei Long stage theme, but it's one of any number of excellent reworkings - so good that we said they were up there with UDON's graphics work in our Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix review." - Tom Bramwell, Editor, Eurogamer.net
- GameFocus (Game: 8.3/10, Sound: 9.5/10):
"In order to offer some novelty alongside the HD visuals, Capcom went to video game music tribute website OverClocked ReMix and ask them to remix the old Street Fighter music for the game. The final result is a treat to the ears and fans of the series will surely appreciate the new soundtrack as it matches the striking visual experience to add a bit of adrenaline during fights. - Remixed music is nice." - Jay "AnodaJay" Acevedo, Editor-in-Chief, GameFocus
- GameSpot (Game: 8.5/10, Great, Awarded "Great Original Soundtrack"):
"Stellar new art and music. -- Adding to the phenomenal visual delight is an energetically enhanced soundtrack. A fusion of heavy metal guitar riffs and groovy electronica will pump you up with retooled versions of classic jams in the menus and during fights." - Mitch Dyer, GameSpot
- GameTrailers (Game: 8.6/10):
"Rounding out the transformation is a soundtrack of remixed renditions of classic Capcom tunes courtesy of OC ReMix. For a game marketed to the fans, it only seems right that its eclectic soundtrack should be made by the fans." - GameTrailers
- IGN (Game: 8.7/10, Sound: 8.5/10, Editors' Choice Award):
"Very impressed with the contributions of the OC ReMix community. The music in this game is sweet and a great tribute to the original soundtrack." - Ryan Clements, Associate Editor, IGN PlayStation Team
- ComputerGames.ro (Game: 87/100, CG Silver Award):
"The sound was also improved, with more than decent results. The audio part never excelled in the Capcom’s fighting games, but this time around the [OverClocked ReMix] team did good work. Even though the visuals are the most fascinating part of this title, the sound is a good addition to game's atmosphere, with some electronic and heavy-metal music which reminds us of its predecessors, in a modern way." - "Taw", ComputerGames.ro
- Game Revolution (Game: B+):
"Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix's extra bells and whistles include a complete graphical overhaul and a stellar soundtrack, and doesn't disturb the delicate gameplay balance of the arcade classic." - Andrew Podolsky, Game Revolution
- Cheat Code Central (Game: 4.5/5, Music / Sound FX / Voice Acting: 4.5/5):
"The decision to bring on artists from the volunteer video game remix community - courtesy of OverClocked ReMix - should be commended. Not only does it give these talented arrangers attention, but every single MIDI track has be re-imagined in the best possible light, giving the audio an updated vibe that feels appropriate and never out of place. The folks over at OverClocked ReMix have done a fantastic job of taking classic MIDI tracks and breathing new life into them." - Jason Lauritzen, Cheat Code Central
- Official Xbox Magazine (Game: 9.0/10):
"Gorgeously...remixed soundtrack. The soundtrack is an energetic retooling of the classic coin-op music, and its upbeat groove really fits the game’s pace and style." - Corey Cohen, Managing Editor, Official Xbox Magazine
- ZTGameDomain.com (Game: 9.0/10, Excellent, ZTGD Editor's Choice):
"Everything from the new hand-drawn visuals to the soundtrack remixed by a community of gaming audiophiles feels like fan service." - Ken "ZeroTolerance" McKown, Editor-in-Chief, ZTGameDomain.com
- Gaming Target (Game: 9.2/10, Audio: 10/10):
"The simple backdrop animations keep the game rooted with an old-school feel. That goes along with the game's remixed music, which is new, but delivers a quality soundtrack that's reminiscent of the 1990s. Very fitting since Super Street Fighter II Turbo first released in 1994." - Matt Swider, Publisher, Gaming Target
- Gamer 2.0 (Game: 9.3/10, Audio: 9/10, Editor's Choice Award):
"Tapping the [OC ReMix] community for the soundtrack was the best thing Capcom could have done, because these remixes not only sound excellent, but they still feel like the originals." - Filippo Dinolfo, Associate Editor, Gamer 2.0
- WorthPlaying (Game: 9.3/10, Editors' Choice Award):
"What about that music, which keeps its punch? Just leaving it in would have been nice enough, and possibly allow some straight arrangements that would better use the newer audio formats. Instead, Capcom went straight to the experts to remake the music. You're probably guessing some big names from Capcom, but you would be wrong. Instead, David Lloyd, AKA "djpretzel," and the OverClocked ReMix community provide a completely fan-made musical set, and words can't do it justice. It pulls off the same effect as the graphics — both nostalgic and new at the same time — and it could've certainly been a source of crib notes for Street Fighter IV's tracklist." - Erik "NekoIncardine" Ottosen, Reviewer, WorthPlaying
- Street Fighter Devotion (Game: 20/20, Music: 5/5):
"Remixes by OC ReMix make the action come alive!" - Clarence "SFD" Lim, Street Fighter Devotion
- GamesRadar (Game: 10/10, Incredible):
"From its gorgeous visual overhaul to the remixed soundtrack and rebalanced gameplay, Turbo HD is chock full of fan service that will be sure to please even the pickiest Street Fighter connoisseurs." - Tyler Nagata, GamesRadar US
"Behind all the lush new stage backgrounds, hand-drawn HD character models, and remixed music is a fighter obsessively tuned to what the collective hive-mind of SF2 culture deems "perfection." - Ryan Scott, Executive Editor - Reviews, 1UP Network
"The title screen and stage music has been given the remix treatment by our good friends over at OC ReMix and sound[s] great." - Dan Bendon, Editor, Ready Up!
"The new music for the game is INCREDIBLE! It rocks. Literally. As soon as you start up the game you are treated to a beast of an intro. Every character’s theme still feels like their original themes but better. My new favorite has to be Dhalsim’s theme. It’s groovy." - Paolo B., Icrontic
- Legendary game composer, The Fat Man:
"OC ReMix has the reputation of being the "not necessarily cool in that normal way" game remix site. They allow--nay, encourage--all those styles whose potential Not-In-Fashion-Ness might make the game companies shudder. So KUDOS to Capcom for taking the chance and leveraging the spikey weirdness of these very creative and talented folks. It shows a deep understanding of what entertainment is.
And hey. It's about time we saw some Game Audio 2.0!" - George "The Fat Man" Sanger, provider of music & audio for more than 150 games, author, and OC ReMixer
