Default Re: "The Video Game Genre"

Title: Mario Party 5
Artist: Aya Tanaka
Platform: Nintendo GameCube
Link to Buy: N/A
Favorite Song: Start the Dream


Fitting-in: 7/10
It fits in well with the theme, but not so much with the actual game. Thanks, new composer. :p

Originality: 8/10
In it's time, I'd say that most everyone has taken up the calm music fad. I think that MP took it and added it's on spin to it, but not much to give it a 9.

Diversity: 5/10
I feel like they're over using whistle and twinkle way too much. I know like all of the game is based on "dreams" but please, find another way to portray it.

Nostalgia Value: 9/10
After using the star twinkles 50 times in every song, you tend to remember it whether you want it or not.

Overall: 7.25/10

Closing comments: Misleading score is misleading. It should be... a 7. But I can't just change the score to fit my opinion. I have to rate it on it's grading criteria. It's a good tune to listen to when you're trying to relax or feel like reducing stress, but I wouldn't really say it's anything to listen to on a certain basis.
