A sterling soundtrack by Yoko Shimomura.

Reader review by Aaron Lau

Live A Live is perhaps one of the most unknown Square games here in the U.S. It was an RPG that came out in July '94, a few months after the ultra-successful release of Final Fantasy VI. While the game wasn't that good, the soundtrack is. Yoko Shimomura, who made Front Mission and Mario RPG, performs Live A Live. She makes some great music. It's a blend of action and soft tunes that goes together well. Some of the more memorable tracks are "Live A Live" and "Wanderer". "Captain Square" has a very similar trait to that of the 8-bit sounds. "Armageddon" has a striking resemblence to FFVI's "Dancing Mad". "Live Over Again" has a beautiful soft melody and "Live for Live" is the end theme with variations of the main themes in the game. There never was an arranged version of Live A Live, as to my knowledge, but there really isn't a need for one. It sounds great alone in its original synthesized form. All in all, I'd recommend Live A Live to anyone. It's right up there with the likes of Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda.
