I've been following Michael Giacchino's video game scoring work for some time now. From his debuting and brilliant score for The Lost World to the absolutely amazing work that spans the Medal of Honor series of games. Just from these soundtracks alone, one can tell that Giacchino is a master of capturing the mood of the games' material at an astonishing level.
The game (again, having played it myself) is a heavily action packed, WWII arcade-style flight sim, and to say that the score for Secret Weapons Over Normandy captures the mood of the material is an understatement of the largest kind. Not only does Giacchino capture the mood of the game, but he has managed to orchestrate every break-neck dive, flak burst, bomb blast, every enemy swooping in from out of the sun, and every juking turn to avoid a collision with a canyon wall (I'll stop now because the list could go on for hours) and has put it into two breathtaking CDs.
As the booklet in the CD case says, "This is not music for sipping tea or knitting," and as a final word: BUY IT! You won't be dissapointed.
