    I like both but the fan version is better.

    The original one SUCKS compared to the fan-made one.

    The fan-made one sounds much better than the original. I agree with the comment on the gameplay though, but if that's the music of the game I'll have to mute it in the options menu, which will hopefully be possible.

    Yes, playing without sound effects would really suck. It's released on XBLA isn't it? If it is, I can download a trial and check it out before I buy it.

    Well holy SHIT.
    What sounded so bad now sounds amazing!

    I actually thought there might've been something wrong with the composition, but wow!

    They sound extremely similar in terms of instruments. I don't see why everyone has to make a big fuss about it. It's not supposed to be so retro that they have to use sound tracks based off of the 16-bit sounds. In my opinion, they both sound good, and whatever else is in the game will be what it is, not what the fans want it to be.

    The original is much better but the fan made one matches the shape of track more.

    BTW, most (if not all) Xbox 360 games have a custom soundtrack feature. So if you don't like the default music, load up the Xbox Guide and play mp3s of the 16-bit songs.

    Genesis style chiptunes for the win.
    The overall music itself, not very sonic like.
    Maybe more Ristar ish but not even that good.
    More like cruddy Sonic Advance music all over again.
    Good enough to play a game with but not fun or invigorating like the genesis games.
    Really sounds more Pokemon ish than Sonic ish.
    Though it'll fit the level design. Knowing DIMPS they probably still think its a good idea to put walls and endless pits right after a blind jump. [​IMG] (not to mention blind jumps to small floating platforms over an insta death pit after a long smooth run just to piss everyone off I mean its a sonic game isnt it? Why do they think thats good design [​IMG] )

    Kudos to the guy that made this better version of a sadly oddly placed song. [​IMG]
    Sounds tons better with genesis sounds ofcourse. (dunno why they don't just go 16-bit and save themselves the effort, could probably focus more on the horrid level design {compared to classic sonic games} )

    If you see the vid on YT there's a download link to the song, I even have the song on my PSP.

    I didn't think either was that great to listen to. I guess the fan one is marginally better.

    The fan-made one sounds like some high-class menu music.

    Wow, the fan-made one is so much better, Sega should hire that guy!
