Best Video Game Soundtracks of 2019
Honorable Mention: The Legend of Zelda: Cadence of Hyrule
Features Editor Greysun Morales: Do you know what’s better than all of the classic music found in the Legend of Zelda games? Rock adaptations of those songs.
Brace Yourself Games has done something that nobody else has done before by turning top-down Zelda into a hardcore rock-rhythm game that plays out like a rogue-like title.
Hearing these iconic songs in a different light while playing Cadence of Hyrule is truly astounding. Moving about the tiles in the game to the beat of the music felt really good, especially when you really got into it and just annihilated all of the enemies on screen without getting hit once.
The game was very difficult to get used to at first being a Zelda enthusiast but once I literally got into the groove of things, I found myself loving this musical adventure and its unique take on the Zelda soundtrack.
