"Composed by the Capcom Sound Team, Masami Ueda, Makoto Tomozawa and Akira Kaida, Resident Evil’s brooding score became a benchmark for horror games, giving the original genre-defining masterpiece a persistent and unnerving sense of claustrophobia."
Resident Evil 2:
"The Resident Evil 2 Original Soundtrack conveys fundamental themes of panic and desperation via varying musical styles. Featuring ambient horror, industrial pieces and rousing militaristic anthems you’ll experience classic orchestral compositions alongside ominous piano underscores, taking you back to Raccoon City’s iconic Police Station, Sewer and Underground Laboratory."
Whether you go with the Deluxe or the Limited Editions, the price is set at $35 - which is not bad for the horrifying - yet soothingly familiar - experience of Resident Evil. And if you're playing through the remake now, why not have the authentic game sounds playing off in the distance?
