[s]Even if you’re not the greatest player in the world, you’ll seriously enjoy the music in the game as you get pummeled into the ground by top tier fighters.
This game introduced so many cool new tracks that suit their characters well. Some of my favorite themes old and new include those of the following characters: Phoenix Wright, Captain America, Spider-Man, Bionic Commando, X-23, and of course Dante.
As far as best fighting game goes… hell no! But that’s not what this topic is about. Don’t let a favorite fighting game make you bias.[/s]
Y’ALL HELPED ME SEE THE LIGHT AS DANTE HAD IN DMC (WITH TEARS OF SORROW)
As they say in Street Figher II… YOW WIN! 100,000 PTS.
You know what, I still don’t find UMVC3’s soundtrack to be all that bad. I’d still rank it up there with the best of them (the fighters, of course). It’s certainly the best soundtrack of all the MVC games, remixes duly noted.
Since “GREATEST” and “BEST” are big no-no’s in these forums. I’ll say that KOF stands out as a series that produces some of my favorite soundtracks in the fighting game genre as well.
Ha! You’re one of those fans. A UMVC3 hater. X-23’s track suits her – and it’s a nice and unexpected addition to an already exciting series. I could say Psycho Soldier’s main Arcade theme is rife with Pop-Poop but why would I? It fits the lighthearted nature of the game. Nothing wrong with a little Pop here and there. And was it so bad that they rearranged and remixed it for the KOF series countless times? So, A+ to SNK and Capcom. What’s wrong with remixes when composed with different interpretation? Nothing. See
[details=Spoiler]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sI10tNJ_Gkk[/details] for reference. UMVC3 is like a remix greatest hits of notable Capcom fighting franchises.
Seriously, what’s with MK’s soundtracks? They’re for the most part generic as hell. I wouldn’t be surprised if you own a copy of Killer Instinct Cuts considering your taste in music.
I guess I’m not like you in that I have an open mind and appreciation for almost all types of music - except MK’s - and musical genres. Ah, well, to each his/her own I suppose. You gotta have an ear for such things. In fact, unless you can bring up some more fighters in mind, I can’t think of a notable fighter with worse music than MK because it’s not music at all; it’s ambiance. I’m so sure Ed Boon is sweating bullets worrying about if MK fans are going to like the game’s new tracks over the tweaked fighting mechanics & fatalities.
**You think the consensus outside the diehard MK fanbase would argue that is has better music than series such as… SF? no. KOF? no. BB? no. MVC? no. VF? no. Tekken? no. Smash Bros? nope. GG? nope. JoJo? nope again. Not to mention the millions of crossovers Capcom, SNK, etc. have done.
It’s bottom of the barrel in terms of music.** WTF you smoking? You have the audacity to trash UMVC3 and then suggest MK series is as a music powerhouse? 0/10.
