What can I find on GSoundtracks?
Reviews: We offer reviews of the latest game scores as well as favourites from the past. Please note that we primarily review scores from Western games. We may consider reviewing scores from the Japanse video game market at some point, but not at the moment.
Interviews: Composers talk with us about latest develpments in the industry, their scores in detail, their specific view on the challenges and rewards for composing for games as well as their personal background in gaming.
Feature: Game scores are often closely tied to the game and what's going on on-screen. To make scores even more enjoyable, we offer liner notes to selected scores so that a stand-alone listen gains more value and offers better entertainment.
Links: Our links section includes game composer websites.
How does GSoundtracks review?
GSoundtracks' reviews focus on two factors: How the score works within the game and how enjoyable it is as a stand-alone listen. Rating criteria include the wealth of themes and theme development, the quality of orchestration and performance, the overall sound as well as genre-specific criteria, if applicable.
