OCR00625 - Mega Man 2 "Project X2 - Title Screen"

Recommended Posts

Mega Man 2 'Project X2 - Title Screen'

When I first heard this song, I knew Project X2 would be something special. In the first part, an NES-style synth is well-blended with an acoustic guitar. The second part is heavier, but still features a blend of synths and guitars. I have only two complaints: the way the transition is executed, and the length. Other than that, this is much better than anything from Project X1. Recommended.

Project X and X2 are increadible. If you're going to remix a game, do it the right way and remix the whole thing. And that's exactly what these guys did. :D Mega Man fans rejoice!

I was impressed with the different styles used in this mix. First, with the soft, traditional introduction, but wait...all of a sudden, you think it's still keeping traditional, then whats happening? It becomes heavy with guitars, and you can only say to yourself "Holy crap, this is awesome!" I for one, really enjoyed this mix, and can't wait to listen to more to come in the future! ;)

Project X2 Titlescreen is a solid remix. The prologue music has a somewhat-expected techno beat (with a hint of acoustic guitar). Then about a minute in, it gives you that "what's gonna happen next?!" feeling. Then the title screen music blasts in electric guitar.

I GIVES IT 5 STARS *****

Now, normally, I like to post really in-depth reviews about things...

...But all I can say is, this rocks so much that I registered on the board just to show how much I like it!

It's proper bo. Which it was longer though.

Oh well, can't have everything. :)

This is fantastic!

The interplay between the techno instrument and the rippin' guitar is superb. From Mellow start to shredded finish, this is tip-top material, absolutely perfect.

This is freakin' sweet!

The synths were very good.

At first I downloaded this for nothing but the second half, when this switches to the electric guitar.

But I soon came to love the whole thing.

Only one complaint....

It was WAY TOO SHORT.

But there is always "Repeat" to fix that.

It was WAY TOO SHORT.

The change from a touching arrangement into a headbanging rockplay was excellent. Nice drums also, but then...it stopped. It IS way to short, both I and MMNR has jumped to that conclusion.

But it kicks ass, so why bother complain, when, as MMNR said, we have the repeat button.

The walkover to the rock part was a little weird, sounded like I was teleported into a spacesjip that currently is 10 feet above ground.

I loved it. I don't care how short it is, the way they mixed their guitars with that lead sounds so... so.... Damn, I can't even describe it. Its just a great track! I think out of 10, its a positive 7.

Too short and some of the high end seems muted, but it's a solid mix with some nice and crisp guitar playing. The drums didn't sound realistic, but once the glitches started, I realized they weren't supposed too. Very nice stylistic choice.

For as short as it is, it packs a lot of punch; check this one out. :-)

Pretty solid old-school material. Loved the sound choices for the introduction. Once things picked up, the track was on the empty side due to the drums not filling out the back by themselves, but the overall execution was pretty solid. A little dated, but it still holds up pretty well.

Opening is fairly straightforward to the source, but when the main theme comes in is where things really open in. I like where the synth gets its own time to shine and also collabs together with the other sounds.

Super short, definitely meant as just an introduction, but it packs it's own punch.

Admittedly, when it was just acoustic guitar and synth, I was thinking how cooler it would be if we had a strictly acoustic guitar arrangement of the Mega Man 2 intro, but then about 1:10 into the mix happened. :razz:

Completely rocking, yo.

Simple, short, and really sweet. Completely perfect intro for its album.

The intro reminds me of Wonderboy by Tenacious D.

Pretty cool acoustic chip-ish combo.

The wind effect is really cool. AND THEN IT KIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCCCCCKKKSSS IN!!!!

I like the way it tackled that transition. It certainly left me hanging. (but then satisfied my desires. though I wish it looped one more time before ending on me)
