It's better than Nier, and easily. Nier's music is ruined by the incessant "angelic" vocals on almost every single track. They get old, fast.
As far as what has a better soundtrack in general? As much as it's mentioned; Xenoblade. Probably has one of the best soundtracks of a 2012 release.
I loved Nier's soundtrack. So did most people if I am remembering correctly. But I enjoy Angelic voices and such. Probably why I like Dead Can Dance so much.
Someone listed FFX's soundtrack. I've sat here for 5 minutes trying to remember a single track from FFX and all that comes to mind is the Chocobo theme and the Victory Fan Faire, which are both old as hell.
Never played Xenoblade Chronicles since I honestly cannot bring myself to hook up My Wii, and I have no desire to buy a Controller just to play 1 game that has been so hyped up it is almost a given that it would be a huge let down.
Is it true that the last portion of the game is a guy sitting in a chair describing the story?
That's XenoGEARS. A PS1 game.
If the doors of perception were to be cleansed, everything would appear as it truly is-Infinite.
I don't dislike the soundtrack. I just don't really find it to be anything above average.
The problem with orchestral music is that it's not memorable at all, really. It sounds good while playing, but there's nothing I really feel the need to seek out and listen to.
For a different kind of comparison, I loved both DQ8 and FFX years ago. I can really only remember the world map music of DQ8, and maybe the boss music to an extent. I can remember most of FFX's soundtrack within a few minutes if I tried, from memory.
So far, the music that I've particularly enjoyed (more than average) in NNK is the music that played in the Golden Grove, and some sort of fast-paced music that plays during critical scenes.
