The Game – Block Wars Review

If this soundtrack is a reflection of the game when it releases, it is going to be great. While some of it sounds like material that didn’t make it onto Game’s last release, it all works very well for this project as it might have for the other.

The production is exactly what this project is aimed for, with deep bass and gritty street backings mixed with some softer, more upbeat offerings to help balance it all out. Game has always had a fantastic ear for beats, which is clear on here as the tracks all have the atmosphere each song needs. For the purpose it needs to serve, this is a great platform for Game to work with.

The lyricism is exactly what this project needs. It is clever and catchy, while expressing aggression and light heartedness in the appropriate places.  There are changes in flows to help keep in interesting and it all comes together to stop this being a stale offering of similar songs to ones Game has offered before.

There is only one feature on this project who helps to add a new dimension as she is a singer. She does a great job showing what she can do, and of bringing diversity to this project. It is great to see Game taking more of the action for himself instead of having guests everywhere to help bear the load.

Overall, this is a great soundtrack for a game that will be successful if it is as good as this listen through. Game is on a roll recently but lets hope his increase in quantity doesnt lead to a drop in quality.
