Rez soundtrack.

If you've not heard of it before, Rez was the game that sought to turn girls onto gaming Also, the tracks are all good, but the Area 5 track is probably the best.

  • Hell yes! I think I might be addicted to cool video game music now, after listening to this and the Katamari Damacy soundtrack. Any others to recommend?
  • I heard this game was going to be re-released soon. Of soundtracks I know you can get, Gradius V has a good one (for a shmup) but it's expensive (as opposed to being able to unlock it like in Katamari).
  • Thanks for the link!
  • Are there any music-based games like this for the PC? Or any system that has an emulator that can be run on the PC?
  • I like to think of Reason as a music based game for the PC.
  • Rez is a great game... I would re-buy a PS2 just for this game alone (long story, involving a stolen PS2).
  • I heard this game was going to be re-released soon. Really? Got a story to link to at all? I don't want to spend a boatload of cash on a used copy if I know that they're going to re-release it.
  • I don't think I got this info from any "official" gamesite; it was probably people just being hopeful with a rumor on message boards. I did a search and there's more than one post like this. I paid $55 bucks for a new copy on ebay, and because so many others have done likewise the rumor seemed sensible to be, but I suppose all this could have been started by people not wanting to pay $55 or more. I wanted this game to be re-released because it deserves to be, and I think it would sell well at a lower price. I didn't intend to give false hopes.
  • Coincidentally, Rez and Katamari were the first two games I tested when I finally hooked my systems up to a stereo (and Contra Shattered Soldier - not because it sounds "good," but because it sounds crazy.)
  • The Rez re-release rumor has been around for a while. I think it probably should have happened by now. My guess is that plans are on hold so long as Sega stays in the crapper, but that's a guess. At any rate, it would be too bad if it was never re-released, because along with Ico, Rez was the best PS2 game released, IMO, and I never had a chance to grab a copy when it was available.
  • Indeed, Ico is my favorite game of all time and there was a re-release rumor surrounding it as well. Anyone out there who is into games owes it to themselves to check these titles out. And since Ico has been brought up I may as well plug Wanda and the Colussus, which is the latest upcoming game from the Ico team.
  • Wanda looks fucking wonderful. I hope it is.
