A beefed up, in yer face version. Not so much a 'remix'. The original SID is one of my faves, so this is fine by me. Don't fix what aint broken!!!!

Classic game, Classic SID, Classical Remix.
The arrangement here really captures the atmosphere of the original as well as being musically very accurate. Of course it sounds like synthesised music, but the synth sounds are very good and the piece is hugely listenable.
This is the version that fans of the original SID will keep coming back to.
Well done.

The original SID was used in quite a few Ocean games, but Rambo was the game it really suited. It built it the game up nicely so you really felt like blowing stuff up by the time it loaded.
Rob's arrangement adds a militaristic feel with the rock guitars and drums, with piano, pan-pipes(!) and other FX adding to the atmosphere.
Whilst others (esp. Instant Remedy) do great versions of the Ocean loading music, this is very much RAMBO!!!!
One of my favourite remixes.
