I appreciate the professionalism of the score but i think i sounds very bland.

In fact it sounds very very close to the score that seems to go with every signle 'jerry Bruckheimer' production, movie or TV.

I don't really care much about game music though and tend to turn it off after an initial listen. Game sound is very important to me but mucic is like wrapping on a present. Nice to see once. If the game is some kind of fantasy rpg then i think music is a big deal.

For GRAW though I'm not so impressed.
