Top 5 Video Game Tunes That Get You Immersed Before The Game Even Starts
Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty
The main theme from Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty sounds very similar to the original’s, but it just works better here because it doesn’t have to represent the whole game, just the Terrans. The first few seconds sound a lot like that “evolution” music, which is an awesome touch since we’re talking about humanity.
It then goes to louder and heavier music, which makes you think of what humanity has evolved into – gorilla-like space suits, gargantuan battlecruisers and imposing artillery tanks, with the guitar riffs adding a nice little touch of exploration.
The darker parts that follow convey a feeling of fear and uncertainty – very fitting for being caught up in a war this huge. In short, this theme works really well for a campaign that focuses on Terrans because it sums up the Terran backstory without using a single word, only emotion. They have evolved from apes, mastered space exploration and are now in huge trouble because of it.
