Worst Video Game Soundtracks

Postby VideoGameCritic » December 28th, 2008, 6:33 pm

There's a pretty good thread going about the best tunes in video games, but how about the worst?  Which games have the worst music?  Did it hurt your enjoyment of the game?

Off my head, I think Motor Storm (PS3) has a pretty irritating soundtrack, even if it is consistent with the spirit of the game.

Action 52's soundtrack on the NES comes to mind. Of course, you might not notice it because the entire game is one of the worst games ever made. There's some Japanese bands that did covers of the songs, as sort of a big ironic joke.

I know Im constantly talking about mortal kombat.

But I cant understand why Quan-Chi's palace has Techno beat music. WTF.

Sonic Adventure 2's soundtrack-every track was awful, heck, EVERYTHING about SA2 was awful.

Sonic CD's english soundtrack-it's mundane and boring, no energy or beat whatsoever-the japanese soundtrack is far more catchy and memorable.

Excite Truck (Wii) has a really bad soundtrack, but thankfully it allows you to play your own music.

In my opinion cluclu land on the nes had an annoying background tune. But it went well with the annoying gameplay.

Double Dragon on the 7800

I don't like the sound track to Gran Turismo 3.  While I do like some of the included songs, it just seems like they were randomly pulled from too broad a spectrum. It comes across as a mish mash to me.

Oh, and Salamander on the ZX Spectrum. Awful sounds!

Any game that uses rock music instead of original songs (i.e. Crazy Taxi).
