Progressive beats and rock.
Reader review by James Wong
The Virtua Cop Soundtracks two disc set isn't exactly a disappointment, nor is it "one of the best I've heard". I sometimes wonder why people would want the Saturn music as well as the arcade version of Virtua Cop when the arcade has a better sound board (I suppose if you're a die hard fan then it's justified). Quibbles aside, the soundtracks are unique. The tunes have a hefty base rhythm along with steady percussion. Some tunes are rather cheesy (with one of the guys saying "Let's Go" and then "Be careful") but most are cool and run at a moderate to fast tempo. You can tell that there is synthesis in several of the tunes (in "Arms Black Market", I thought to myself, that the trumpet sure sounds funky at that high pitch). There really is not much to say about this set. If you've played VC at the arcades and you like the music, then this is for you. If not, then I'd save my money for something else.
