The Violence Killer soundtrack (Turok 2 remastered) is simply fantastic. Where should I go to find more of a similar style of awesomeness? The other Turok games? Film soundtracks? Independent artists? And will anybody ever solve the eternal mystery, Danen or Darren Mitchell?
I liked the music from Turok so much that I recorded it straight to CD. There was no sound test, so I had to disable sound effects, use an appropriate cheat code to render me effectively invincible, and then hang out for a few minutes. And then Turok 2 came out, harboring significantly more impressive music, which undoubtedly led to the full sound version (like many DS games) CD release. I'm not sure if Turok 2 can be bested. It can be considered an unmatchable paradigm, for others to use as a reference.
I did listen to some of the music in Turok 3, but I can't remember a thing about it.
Also, I believe that no other N64 game got a full sound version release. I distinctly remember reading that the music in Turok 2 had to be compressed in order to fit on the N64 cartridge. It's a matter of simple logic connecting that fact to the superior sounding music on the CD. That must be the music that was made before it was compressed! This makes me wonder how many other soundtracks were made in full sound form, before having to lose quality to make it on the cartridge. I'd love to hear the uncompressed Perfect Dark or Blast Corps, for example.
