    What FFXIII song did you like?

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] I really really like this song, and is one of the few map themes i actually like in the game.I like the classical music feel and the violin.The song is just very relaxing.
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.] barthandalus boss theme.very epic and actually works very very well.It has that feeling that there is no holding back, and that he is the true boss.obviously it isn't the same without the boss in it.

    I actually didn't love any of the songs in XIII. XIII-2 though.

    Oh my gosh, I could listen to this song forever. Possibly my favourite theme of all the final fantasy games.

    The Final Fantasy game soundtracks are kind of like movie soundtracks - they're made to fit specific scenes, and make you think of certain themes when you see characters etc etc. They usually work well in game, but aren't too memorable outside of that, at least IMO. That isn't to say that there isn't a lot of good music in all the games, but I usually don't remember much of it. I mean, I've watched Star Wars millions of times for example, but I can't remember much of the music beyond the intro and the Imperial March. Its good in the movie and that's what really matters.

    All told though, I'd rather have the music from Atlus' Persona games or from the various Castlevania games (some of them are kind of RPGish), where they make a real effort to make the music enjoyable in its own right. I can happily listen to the music from such games, without having to play the games to enjoy it.


    If I had to choose from FF13 though, I can only really remember the intro music, which I do like very much. That sort of whistling march that grows louder and louder before the epic sweep rolls out. Other than that... the music on Pulse was pretty good as I remember. Particularly that sort of flute one that's really carefree and bouncy.

    Yeah barthandalus theme is like that, and it isn't the same hearing it by itself.Its still a really good song though in my opinion.

    Themes for big bosses are always kind of 'Da DUUMM - You'rrre in the shiiiit NOOOW - Da DUUUM!', booming away in the background to get your blood pumping and get the adrenalin flowing.

    They kind of lose something when you're not actually there in the moment, risking life and limb, but they work great when you are playing.

    I love both soundtracks a lot, though XIII is more my favorite. If I really had to pick.. probably Saber's Edge/The Promise and Snow's Theme.

    well, if it's too much to deal with, face it later.

    I really liked Dust to Dust, but I also liked the two Japanese songs.

    I don't know why, but I liked Dust to Dust (found in the snow area of Gran Pulse). It gives off that sad vibe which is perfect for sad situations.

    I liked the one that sounded any different from the rest. Oh wait, this is a Hamauzu score.

    I'm gonna be the oddball here and pick Can't Catch a Break as my favorite. The jazzy rhythm is just great to listen to, whether while playing the game or not.

    I also like Gapra Whitewood, Sunleth Waterscape, Archylte Steppe, Dust to Dust, Snow's Theme, and The Promise (title screen piano track).

    I'm still going through the game, but i would have to say that the music is what is really captivating in this game! it has relevance to the story. Though it's been some time since I played it (going back 5 months) I did enjoy them all. Though the battle music gets a bit repeated when your grinding (when you meet up with Hope and Snow, sorry I've forgotten the name) it's the same music over and over, and it's worth it, but it takes a bit of the flavour away from it.

    Favourite from XIII-2 is probably Paradigm Shift or New Bodhum. From LR it's probably Claire Farron.

    I'm not going to lie, but I like the classical music feel of sulyya springs.That song is just delightful to hear, and I don't mind hearing it over and over, like a calm after the storm.

    I do favor nobuo uematsu over the person/persons who wrote the music for FFXIII.

    Indeed it is!

    I agree with Nostalgia again, the classical feel of the score is just so brilliant to listen to!
