REVIEW

Mass Effect (ENGLISH)

Mass Effect (Jack Wall and Sam Hulick). It is true that the soundtrack of Mass Effect does not seem to stand out especially during the game experience, but on having finished the game and to listen to it is when this one acquires all its dimension and importance inside the Mass Effect universe. On having listened to it, one realizes how good it is and of the difficult that seemed to set the most ambitious spatial epic created up to date. And it is that themes created for setting the Normandy or the Presidium, which looks like minor themes during the game, acquires a high importance when they grant to Mass Effect's universe a clear and definite character.

The musical need of a space opera as ambitious as Mass Effect needed an abundant quantity of themes. And it is that the quantity of plots, subplots, principal and secondary characters, worlds and locations to make its musical setting is very numerous.

To the themes before mentioned of The Normandy and The Presidium, constant appellants since they possibly are the both stays that are visited by major assiduity along the history, other really good themes are added, as The Citadel, Spectre Induction, Uncharted Worlds, Sovereign's Theme, Uplink or From the Wreckage, apart from great and very varied others, so much with ambient aesthetics as themes of pure action moments. On the other hand, there are the themes located in concrete worlds, that make us travel for the galaxy as the Star Wars purest style, remembering the places where we have spent enough time and left effort, sweat and some tear to be still forward, worlds and places such as Eden Prime, Feros, Noveria, Virmire, Ilos, as well as the eternal Citadel and its numerous locations, like the Presidium and the wards.

This trip across the different noted characters, the different plots and the different worlds do the listening of the Mass Effect soundtrack a great experience. Only a major duration of the same one is missed.

Mass Effect (ESPAÑOL)

Mass Effect (Jack Wall y Sam Hulick). Si bien durante el juego la banda sonora no parece destacar especialmente, al terminar el mismo y escucharla es cuando ésta adquiere toda su dimensión e importancia dentro del universo Mass Effect. Al escucharla, uno se da cuenta de lo buena que es y de lo difícil que parecía ambientar la epopeya espacial más ambiciosa creada hasta la fecha. Y es que temas como la ambientación de la Normandía o el Presidium, que parecen temas menores durante el juego, se hacen con una importancia elevada cuando otorgan al universo de Mass Effect un carácter claro y definido.

La necesidad musical de una space opera tan ambiciosa como Mass Effect requería una cantidad de temas abundante. Y es que la cantidad de tramas, subtramas, personajes principales y secundarios, mundos y localizaciones por ambientar es muy numerosa.

A los temas antes mencionados de The Normandy y The Presidium, constantemente recurrentes ya que son, posiblemente, las dos estancias que son visitadas con mayor asiduidad a lo largo de la historia, se añaden otros temas realmente buenos, como The Citadel, Spectre Induction, Uncharted Worlds, Sovereign's Theme, Uplink o From the Wreckage, aparte de otros muchos y muy variados, tanto con estética ambiental como de momentos de pura acción. Por otro lado están los temas localizados en mundos concretos, y que nos hacen viajar por la galaxia al más puero estilo Star Wars, recordando los lugares donde hemos gastado bastante tiempo y dejado esfuerzo, sudor y alguna lágrima para seguir adelante, mundos y lugares como Eden Prime, Feros, Noveria, Virmire, Ilos, así como la eterna Ciudadela y sus numerosas localizaciones, como el Presidium y los distritos.

Este viaje a través de los distintos personajes, las distintas tramas y los distintos mundos hacen de la escucha de la banda sonora de Mass Effect una gran experiencia. Solamente se echa en falta un mayor metraje de la misma.
