The music of the Halo games has played such an important part in the games entire experience and the theme song is probably the most recognizable theme song of any 21st century game. The Halo games are some of the few games that don’t actually have an option to stop the music and I’m sure none of us Halo fans have ever wanted to, but there are some missions in particular where the music affects us so much more making it so much better. Whether it’s the screeching guitar solos or the string-heavy orchestral numbers, do tell which are your favourite Halo songs. Which missions were they in? Which game had the best soundtrack over all? How did they affect your Halo experience?
I personally loved how the song in the final mission of Halo 3 contributed to the sheer intensity of it all. I do feel that the Halo 2 soundtrack was, almost unarguably, the best and I really, really loved the songs that Incubus did in it. You may all remember that one song in the Banshee mission with the chaotic guitar riff playing in all different time signatures. That was one of four songs Incubus did for the Halo 2 soundtrack but that only one that was actually in game, I believe. And let’s not forget that Breaking Benjamin’s “Blow Me Away”, Hoobastank’s “Connected” and Nile Rodger’s “Never Surrender” were featured in the soundtrack too. The song “Epilogue” was also pretty nice and deserves an honourable mention.
Anyways, I really hope that you guys at 343 can par Marty’s (and Michael Salvatori’s) musical genius. It’s sad that he’ll be gone but I’m positive that you guys won’t disappoint musically.
