    that’s some damn fine pinball level music.
    Maybe they didn’t have to worry about space as much since it didn’t have to fit on a disc so they were able to get away with not compressing the graphics as much?

    OR
    At 0:37 in the Pinball OST...is that Amy laughing? Like, Cindy's Amy, probably from a Sonic Boom episode? It sure SOUNDS like it even if it's just some unrelated laugh.

    Anyway, music is weird in a good way. I'm actually not sure it's my favorite (on a purely subjective scale) but it embodies a good feel for Sonic music that's not just trying to be the genesis games.
     
  4. Okay, that pinball music is a bop.

  5. My assumption that Rintaro Soma could nail a CD style track is confirmed. Strong Collision Chaos vibes.

    Reminds me of the Pizza Tower OST a bit. Which is always a good thing.

    Yeah, that's a bopper track.
    Maybe? The size for each pack was around 500mbs. There were about 6 of them? Unleashed was around 5.6 gigs. The average Xbox game disc at the time was around 7.3 gigs.
    I read that the Japanese PS3 release already had the DLC levels included on the disc. I haven't actually verified that though or bothered to check if there were texture differences.

    This is like the forbidden child of Stardust Speedway present JP and Studiopolis Zone Act 1. The random compressed vocal samples are a nice touch as well.

    I'm also happy to see how lively the background looks. Speed Jungle Zone doesn't seem to have much in the way of animation, but almost everything in this background changes in some way, which is very cool.

    Track is pretty good! I know it's been mentioned but it gives me big Pig City (Bite the Crust) vibes from Pizza Tower.

    I love that part at 1:14 where the snyth comes to the surface to play the counter melody, really nice touch

    Edit: After a few more listens I really like the composition.. Buuuut.... I'm still not in love with Tee Lopes style of production. I wish it was more sample driven like Sonic CD.. Or heck like Pizza Tower too if I continue that thought.. im just nitpicking, it sounds good and I'm sure im game I'll love it

    This is very good. More tracks by this person are a must. Tee Lopes doing the potential Act 2 remix for this has me very excited.

    Man, this is actually going to play like a true long lost sequel of the classic 2D titles. After listening to the Carnival level song, I'm kinda teary eyed. I'm so ready for this game.

    No clue what people mean by CD vibes. It just sounds like the boss music the Sonic Mania all over again, sometimes switching over to Studiopolis, which is not a good thing at all in my eyes. It all somehow goes back to the exact criticism of instrumentation that I gave Tee's stuff... But now it's on someone else's music. Pretty much kills all hope of having a single song to love on this game.


    Because Sonic Unleashed was originally going to be a two-disc game (the one prototype disc we have of it is actually only half of the prototype because of that) but they had to cut back on storage *somewhere* to make it fit on one, and the easiest ways to do that are the quality of the baked lighting and texture resolution. It may be possible the adventure packs themselves were all meant to be in the game originally but just cut for space and released for DLC.

    They also fixed a critical bug through one of those packs so they didn't have to pay a separate "publish an update" fee. So if you don't have those packs you don't have the patch.
     
  17. This is so good. Sounds a mixture of the proto Carnival Night + Stardust Speedway (Present) [JP) and Studiopolis Act 2. I love the bass!

    Great to see Rintaro Soma can compose more than "EDM" style, which is awesome. It's actually nice itself to see other Frontiers composers returning.

    I’m on board with this track. I didn’t like it at first and I REALLY didn’t like it from the game clips. Something about 00:55 - 01:10 just seems so “basic jazz scale”. Otherwise I love that it gives me “If Sonic 1 were made today” vibes. It’s tastefully a slower song for what is most likely going to be a slower level. I’m excited to hear Act 2 :V

    Feels like I've heard part of the Pinball Carnival track before but it's still good.
