What do you think about the music?

Postby letuandk » Wed Jan 10 2018 12:28pm

I had quite a disapointment when I first played SF3. The music, imo, is horrible! Probably the worst OST for a Shining Force game. The music aren't memorable, have bad arrangement and are way too repetitive. Take 'Symbios Attack' to get what I really mean, and you gotta hear that a lot. SF2 and SF1 OSTs just are waaay better.

I have only played Scenario 1 until now, but I doubt the other scenarios are better in this matter. What do you guys think?

I think the battle music is awesome, I playing it now in my head and all I am screaming is TA!!!! Lol. It definitely gets me more pumped up about the battle scene than the other shining games.


How are you playing it? The issue may be the emulator you are using, I only play my Saturn on hardware.

^ Yeah, SSF in particular butchers the soundtrack.

The soundtrack itself I find really good. I wouldn't put it up with the best of all time, but somewhere just below that group.
Currently playing for the first time: Trails of Cold Steel 1
Currently re-playing: Nothing

I'm usually a fan of the music in Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile and a number of other games with Sakuraba's music.

But SF3, I felt didn't manage to capture the style of the first two games, except for a few songs. For example, Julian's combat track (The Mercenary Soldier, iirc?), always made me very happy when he was around during chapter 1.

I do listen to the soundtrack often enough while working on my project, so I don't think it's a bad soundtrack, I just don't associate Sakuraba's style with the Shining Force franchise, even though he made many other Camelot Software games' music.

I much prefer the works from Masahiko Yoshimura for SF.
... enjoy!

Im great fan of the sf3 music, for me is one of the best soundtrack, I think it capture the feeling of a new age of shining force, that was what camelot were trying to bring.
