Best Sound of the Year (Posted Dec 22, 2003)
There are few things that can establish the feeling of a game like the sound.
Try turning the sound off in a game like Alien Shooter, and the sense of dread
around every corner mostly vanishes. Sound makes games feel complete and
turns ok games into great games. This years finalists each had a sound
that was all its own, and the scores of each show that it was a hard pick for
our reviewers. There was no clear number one in this category, but there
was a lot of good music.
