Hey man, its me again - Ed, from the 'Underground' Review.

I admire the way you have researched in-depth, the small niche of the game soundtrack market, which is being continually expanding and recognised by companies alike. I haven't found many people who enjoy the feel and rush of loading a game to find a superb composition of music, that makes the 'gaming experience' complete!

I recently attained the new Medal of Honor game - 'Rising Sun' for the X-Box. I seriously urge you to collect this, just for the main title of the game. The music is breath-taking, and mixes well with the genre and style of the whole 'Medal of Honor' concept.
Being a fan of Giacchino's work - I eagerly awaited the opening credits (after completing Rising Sun little under a day's work), so to view his name under the 'Composed and Conducted By: Catergory. I was horrified to see that Giacchino's name was norwhere to be seen, instead to be replaced by some American's instead. This confused me to the extent, I was asking myself " Why is the score so good...even if Giacchino's name isnt there?
It dawned on me that, finally, people and companies were taking this 'niche' more seriously, treating it as a major concept of the game - and long may I hope this continues in the future.

I will enjoy reading more of your posts on this site, of which I will 'chip in' with extra comments, to back up your statement.
And, by the way, I never expected anyone else to come accross 'Shadow Watch'! - a great composition!

Cheers, Ed.
