    rip the Game Corner. You were an unfortunate victim of "Think of the children!!!"

    I would've loved a remix of the Game Corner BGM in OR/AS even with that place being removed. Alas. Fortree City's BGM has me falling asleep tbh; why is it so bland compared to the Secret Base version?

    I'm loving this game's music. I especially like Archie/Maxie's battle theme and the Rival battle theme. They even made Kyogre/Groudon's battle theme sound awesome!

    However, I must question why for the legendary dogs, they used their original 8-bit theme from Crystal version and not the HeartGold and SoulSilver remix.

    I really enjoyed the final battle music for Maxie/Archie, as well as all the Legendary Pokemon theme songs. Everything sounds so smooth and clear. And of course, the remastered soundtrack for all of Hoenn sounds absolutely beautiful.

    They used the version from the games where music originated. I was overall disapointed with most non-Hoenn legendary music, since they were all too modern to be noticeable, but too old to be special. The exception was the Legendary Beast music, which was old enough to be special, so I would have been upset if they used the new version.

    It's kind of an awkward situation they've got with legendary themes here. Their decision to use the original themes adds a certain charm to them and I like that, but the fact that only the legendary beasts got their theme from the old GB soundfont while all other themes were from the DS soundfont kind of makes it feel like the odd one out. In a way that's cool, but I still find it mildly awkward that there's no other legendaries with that treatment. Not that there is anything that could have gotten the same treatment, unless they wanted to give Ho-oh/Lugia the generic wild battle theme from GS but that's lame. I also don't blame them for not giving the legendary beasts their unique HG/SS versions since that's 3 versions of nearly the same theme, which is kind of unnecessary. I guess that's all just a small little quirk though.

    The Champion Battle music has always been one of my favorites, really loved the sound of the remix. The music in the final battle against Wally pleasantly surprised me and even made me laugh a bit, I just thought it kinda contrasted with Wally's character for some reason.

    This soundtrack was awesome. Despite picking apart what I liked; the music was really well-done. That said;

    "Unexpectedly" Awesome;

    Dewford Town
    Battle! Zinnia
    Battle! Rayquaza
    Battle! Team Magma/Aqua Grunt
    Battle! Wally

    Expected Awesome;

    Battle! Regis
    Battle! Gym Leaders
    Fortree City
    Hoenn Oceanic Museum
    Battle! Rival
    Sea Mauville
    Battle! Wild Pokemon
    Defeated! Team Magma/Aqua
    Sootopolis City

    "Lacked" Awesome;

    Battle! Archie/Maxie--Had a great start...but it faded out as the song continued. I'll listen to it again, it'll grow.
    Battle! Elite Four--It's energy was a tad low, it lacked the intensity of the old theme
    Battle! Champion!--Gawwww, what a disappointment. I really wished they amped the theme up, but man, I felt crushed hearing this version.
     
  10. My favourite piece in the entire game is Zinnia's battle theme, closely followed by Wally's. They're just so fitting and epic. I can't wait to remix them.

    Those are 2 of my least favorite themes actually. The battle themes anyways.

    Also, I've been listening to the soundtrack in the car on the way to and from work. Steven's track sounds nice when listened to from a car stereo.

    Indeed. While I never enjoyed the 3rd gen game corner as much as some others, and I much prefer the 2nd gen music theme of it, it's still sad to see it gone, especially with the owner standing by his closed business like that. =(
    Yeah, that is a bit odd. Would have been better if all the legendaries had the songs from their original games (and if AS could have had the superior Ho-oh battle theme...) >:[
    I'm alright with those (probably prefer Wally's theme), but some other tunes I prefer more, such as the Team Magma/Aqua Leader battle theme, and Sootopolis' theme. Always liked that latter one. =)

    Tbh, I don't care at all for the BGM that plays in Delta Episode when we go to space; it's as overrated as Wally's battle BGM imho. Sky Pillar's BGM is great though in my view. I prefer its new soundtrack over the old one from R/S/E.

    Archie/Maxie's battle theme is epic. I like it very much. My favourite theme from this game and from gen VI. Maybe, my favourite theme overall... It's so good.

    I think we should all agree that the ending credits music is the best theme ever. Just saying.

    I love the new ending credits. When I heard it for the first time, it felt like I was playing through RSE for the first time.

    Well the Sky Pillar music isn't really "new" it is just the music when Rayquaza comes down to stop Groudon and Kyogre in Sootopolis City in Emerald.

    It's dreadful though imho. The original was immaculate and didn't deserve to be extended and changed so much in my view.

    I haven't played through that scene since 2005, so I wasn't familiar with that BGM. :x

    Wow, your Emerald knowledge is pretty minimal must say.

    Well, my fears came true about ORAS's music. When I saw the first trailer, I could tell that they changed R/S/E's songs into the 6th gen arrangement, but people disagreed, saying the horns would still be back in full force. One of the biggest examples is the thematic intro, overlooking the pond. The flute is replaced by… 6th-gen synthesizers or something? And not only has the flute been replaced, but also the trumpet, in certain phrases, has been replaced for a more 6th gen style.

    But alas, this was inevitable, for each generation has a distinct musical focus. 3rd gen's R/S/E, and even FireRed and LeafGreen, focused on the trumpet and flute for the main voices. The 6th generation, however, has an entirely different musical focus, and I expected to hear this style in ORAS.

    Despite the above complaint, I'm totally in love with ORAS' music, for songs such as Wally's battle theme, Zinnia's battle theme, Ending Theme, The End music, History of Mega Evolution, Zinnia's Theme (Sorrow), Meteor Falls, Wally's Theme (Emotion), Brendan/May Theme (Emotion), Zinnia's Theme, Sky Pillar… The list goes on.

    My absolute favorite songs of ORAS have to be The End music, Zinnia's Theme (Sorrow), May Theme (Emotion), and Zinnia's battle theme out of all the battles. However, no champion song has yet to come close to Approaching Champion Cynthia:

    Incomparable
