Album: Retro City Rampage: The Soundtrack Demo Mixtape
Composed by: Leonard J. Paul (Freaky DNA), Jake Kaufman (virt), Matt Creamer (Norrin Radd)

This upcoming WiiWare/XBLA game adopts the structure of the early Grand Theft Auto games, while deftly parodying everything from Metal Gear Solid to Batman to Back to the Future. During his time in “Theftropolis,” the protagonist, “Player,” will take on a variety of chaotic, presumably self-referential missions, complemented by this intense throwback of a soundtrack.

Album: Epic Mickey Original Game Score
Composed by: James Dooley

Gauging Epic Mickey’s quality and appeal depends on who you ask, but it’s soundtrack is undeniably cool. It has that certain Disney pep, but with a heavy dash of dark mischief.
