'Starhawk is a third person computer game with an orchestrated musical score by Christopher Lennertz to hit the mark for those who like shooting to music. For those who don't, then the opportunity to own the music on a separate CD is available here.
Like a lot of albums of this nature, you get a rousing selection of music which is no longer soundbytes but something that can stand up on its own. Lennertz' composition is a mix of many tastes, with hints of the American Deep South via a harmonica and violin to purely orchestra, evoking a selection of moods. The music is certainly fun to listen to and an interesting way to while away an hour of time.
The sixteen page booklet has more art than anything and if the game graphics match this, then it looks like an interesting reality.
