T2K

Tempest 2000
The Soundtrack

I thought it was about time we did a page for one of the best CDs out there. Imagitec did such an incredible job on the tunes in the game that it was only right that they produced a soundtrack. T2K had 7 tracks on it: the intro, 4 web themes and 2 bonus level tracks. The CD soundtrack has 12 tracks, 6 from the game and 6 other tracks that were intended for the game originally, but limited cart space denied them the go-ahead. They didn't include the intro/title screen music on the CD tho...If you don't own this CD, you owe it to yourself to pick it up. It's top quality stuff =)
