Game Soundtracks We Love: Digimon World

Game Soundtracks We Love: Digimon World

Hello to everyone! Thank you for joining us, on our cuppa filled gaming journey.

Last week we listened to a few tracks from Nintendo’s first person, sci-fi adventure game: Metroid Prime. If you missed it and want to check it out: Game Soundtracks We Love: Metroid Prime

Game of Choice

The soundtrack chosen for this week is from a PS1 game that had players venturing round a digital world with their partner monster: Digimon World.

Digimon are losing their memories on File Island and many Digimon have left File City and gone into the wild. The player ventures round the island with their partner monster to return Digimon back to File City and to restore File Island to normality.

Video: Intro Trailer
The intro was great when the game was new (perhaps not so much now); the music certainly adds more excitement to the battle segment and makes the player eager to begin the game.

Track Name: File City
File City is where the game starts off; the music is cheerful and peaceful sounding. It’s great for putting the player in a good mood and associate good feelings with the area – making them be more inclined to help the city grow and develop throughout the game. 😀

Track Name: Ice Sanctuary
The Ice Sanctuary always seemed more mystical than most of the areas in the game. It had such a magical sound, and made the place seem huge in size – almost like a cathedral of ice – It was brilliant and suited the place perfectly. 😀

Final Thoughts

I loved Digimon World when it first came out and have fond memories of the game – even though it was a pain trying to work out how to get a specific Digimon. I did however discover a glitch in the game, that showed the entire evolution tree – that may of been the start of my interest in glitches within games. 😛

I don’t think the game has aged very well, but a number of the tracks always stuck in my mind and they hold so much nostalgia – I can’t help but love them! 😀

A few questions for you:

  • What do you think of the intro and the tracks chosen?
  • Did you play Digimon World when it was first released?
  • Do the tracks hold any nostalgia value for you?

Would love to read your thoughts 😀 – Thanks for reading!

We love to hear from you!
