1Up's Jeremy Perish has given an in-depth review of Chip Tuned Rockman, the soon to be released soundtrack from IntiCreates. Overall, Jeremy loved the disc, but cautions readers that it might not be for everyone. A portion of the review below:
"The CD includes 20 tracks arranged as a sort of backward journey through the Mega Man series, beginning with some tracks from Mega Man 9 and working down to Fireman and Cutman's classic themes from the original NES game. This is clearly a labor of love and affection, as the remixers touch on the breadth of the series, including the relatively obscure Mega Man V for Game Boy, and even dish up a remix of the Megawater_S theme from The Wily Wars. I'm a huge Mega Man nerd, and I've never actually played the Wily Wars, since it's a rare and expensive import-only release; I only know it by reputation. These guys clearly did their homework. "
" If there's a downside to Chiptuned Rockman, it's that the whole thing is maybe just a little bit too clever, too meta. People who want game music arranged to sound less electronic won't like it, and people who want the straight-up original compositions will be disappointed by the embellishments."
