REVIEW

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (ENGLISH)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Michael McCann). MacCann's score for Deus Ex-is a jewel that already during the game turns out to be attractive enough for the hearing. The music catches to the perfection the world set in a nearby future with certain technological advances, especially in the area of the human augmentation, and on that the principal argument of the story is centred.

The theme Icarus, which serves for scoring the trailer, is excellent, and serves to raise the trailer to a level only attainable for the best Hollywood trailers, though it is true that already some time ago that the video games have exceeded in narrative capacity to the cinema, especially because there is something in what this one will never be able to compete with the video games, and that is not but its duration. Whereas a video game has dozens of hours to construct a setting and tells the history inside the same one, in the cinema this duration diminishes at only two hours.

And as soon as the technical capacity of the video games has reached a great technical level, and to this we add the money generated as entertainment industry in the seventh generation of consoles, we can find soundtracks composed with the same means and for composers of so much talent as those who devote to the world of the film scoring, with the exigency of having to compose much more music to cover the high footage among in-game and cinematic moments.

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution soundtrack was originally released in 2011. In December 2016, and taking advantage of the soundtrack release of its sequel, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the record label specializing in video game soundtracks Sumthing Else Music Works, reissues the soundtrack in vinyl format, including 2 extra tracks with respect to the original version of 2011.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (ESPAÑOL)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Michael McCann). El score de MacCann para Deus Ex es una joya que ya durante el juego resulta bastante atractiva para el oído. La música capta a la perfección el mundo ambientado en un futuro cercano con ciertos avances tecnológicos, sobre todo en el terreno de los aumentos humanos, y sobre los que se centra el argumento principal de la historia.

El tema Icarus, que sirve para musicalizar el tráiler, es excelente, y eleva el mismo a un nivel solo alcanzable por los mejores tráileres de Hollywood, si bien es cierto que ya hace tiempo que los videojuegos han sobrepasado en capacidad narrativa al cine, sobre todo porque hay algo en lo que éste nunca podrá competir con los videojuegos, y que no es sino su duración. Mientras que un videojuego tiene decenas de horas para construir una ambientación y una historia dentro de la misma, en el cine esta duración se reduce a tan solo dos horas.

Y una vez que la capacidad técnica de los videojuegos ha alcanzado un gran nivel técnico, y a esto añadimos el dinero generado como industria de entretenimiento en la séptima generación de consolas, podemos encontramos bandas sonoras compuestas con los mismos medios y por compositores de tanto talento como los que se dedican al mundo del cine, con la exigencia de tener que componer mucha más música para cubrir el elevado metraje entre momentos de juego y cinemáticos.

La banda sonora de Deus Ex: Human Revolution se editó originalmente en 2011. En diciembre de 2016, y aprovechando el lanzamiento de la banda sonora de su secuela, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, el sello discográfico especializado en bandas sonoras de videojuegos Sumthing Else Music Works, reedita la banda sonora en formato vinilo, incluyendo 2 pistas extra respecto a la versión original de 2011.
