I really do expect a lot more out of the legendary Nobuo. So far all the music for FFXIV sounds kind of Generic. There are some amazing tracks from FFXI and some absolutely amazing tracks from FFXII. Not to mention all the other final fantasy games and their masterpieces. I really do hope SE doesn't produce anything less than spectacular on the audio front for this game. But yeah, that battle song on the JP site is very generic sounding.
I want to hear more epic sounding tracks like this.
I thought the Final Fantasy XII music was for the most part generic and unnoticeable compared to all the other Final Fantasy music. Unless I just had a really bad experience with XII, because I tried playing it like five times and just couldn't get into it like I could the other Final Fantasies..
Final Fantasy XIV's music is sounding really good to me, I like the new battle theme! Especially when you think about how many MMO's just slap something together to have in the background because they know that people are just going to mute it anyway.
