"It is obvious that a lot
of thought went into the scoring of this game. The music
for Hitman 2 is as cinematic as the game itself. It sets
the mood and builds the tension. It is very nicely done
and a must have for gaming fans, especially fans of our
hero, 47." - Chris Peters,
"I'm impressed. There are
many games on the market that have fairly standard soundtracks.
This is not one of those soundtracks. As has been stated,
the music has a tremendous depth of mood and tension that
really contributes to the immersive feel of the game.
The first time you hear that choral opening of the main
theme you'll get shivers down your spine and an itch in
your trigger finger - guaranteed. The sheer cinematic
feel of the music is excellent."
- P. Mah, Canada
"The tendency of moving to
a quality game-making is well seen today. This including
perfect programming, quality design and of course sound
production. The Hitman 2:SA soundtrack stands among the
best game soundtracks we, gamers, ever heard.It is really
of great influence, bringing the lovely, deep sense of
game atmosphere. The most inspiring, maybe, is a Japan
Mansion theme and a Main Title, of course. The most sincere
thanks from us, the fans, to Jesper Kyd, Budapest Symphony
Orchestra and Choir and the sound producing team of Hitman
2 for the perfect work!"
- Michael Vassin, Russia
"This is one beautiful textured
majestic work by a great (And fotmer Amiga legend!) artist,
i must say this cd is a movie soundtrack in the making
well crafted creative yet organized given the scope so
to speak of the material it blends well having bought
the game and now a cd."
- Eric Gieseke, USA
"In general, soundtracks
from games were never popular because they are not suitable
for occasions other than when you are actually playing
the game. However, in the case of this soundtrack, when
you are listening it on the road, you would be imagining
yourself being 47 himself. The dark atmospheric effects
created by Jasper Kyd is indeed very professional. It's
well worth your money! even though i haven't purchased
it yet." - David, Canada
"This is true *music* which
breathes a life of its own, not just notes being played
in a conventionally comprehensible sequence. When experienced
during a game, I am sure its impact is magnified that
much more. (These comments from a non-gamer tantalized
enough to pick up a copy after just one listen.)"
- Vipin Samtani, USA
"The score for Hitman 2 is about as impressive a
body of work as ever I have heard. That it's for a game
is yet more impressive although it stands on it's own
two feet as an amazing collection of themes and music
not just in the gaming world but in the whole world. As
a longstanding lover of score music I can honestly say
that the Main Title for Hitman 2 is among my favourite
pieces, against some fairly stiff competition. That music
of this quality is being composed for games is a boon
to gamers everywhere."
- Caine Stewart, Australia
"The songs are simple great.
But the main title for hitman 2 is just one of the best
songs I'v ever heard. I'd just turn on the computer, start
hitman...and then sit around hearing that music!! It´s
Mozart - Requiem and Jerper Kyd- Hitman... A must hear!"
- João Peça,
" One of the best soundtracks to hit video games
today. The sound surrounds you, and puts you into the
game...and into the state of mind needed for the game.
Music you can sleep to, work to, and of course kill to
(in the game). The best part is i can pop the cd in my
car and just cruise non-stop playin the cd over and over
and over. Great Score."
- Terrence A., USA
"The pieces are simply beautiful.
I relive the action and suspense of the game every time
I put the CD in. What can I say, the music says it all..."
- Kris Meñez, USA
"This soundtrack RULES!!!
I bought the "HITMAN 2: SILENT ASSASSIN" game a few weeks
ago, and have been playing it regularly ever since. One
day I thought, "Wouldn't a soundtrack of this wonderful
music be great!" To my delight, I bumped into this soundtrack
on the internet, and ordered it! I listen to it all the
time in my car, on my stereo at home, even on my DiscMan
when jogging! The music is so full of energy, yet it has
this entriguing subtlety that never fails to amaze me.
I LOVE IT!!!" - Steve,
"Yes, I must admit: it's
great... Moreover, it makes me feel "closer"
to the game that Hungarian Orcheastra is playing that.
Playing it at night on professional level with an earphone..
scary and provides great experience." -
all i have got to say."
- Bruno D.C., Belgium
"i am 15 and tend to listen
to a lot of new style hip-hop however this cd changed
my outlook on classical music drstically i never listen
to this kind of music. i found my musicmatch playlist
turning into a classical theatre. mostly music from jesper
kyd. this music is stunningly beautiful if you take the
time to sit down and really close your eyes, relax and
imagine. its totally cinematic as is the game. the soundtrack
is a+. there is just so much feeling in it. buy the cd
it is amazing." - Nathan
