Halo 2: Anniversary will get a remastered soundtrack release next week

Microsoft will release a remastered version of the Halo 2 soundtrack on November 11, the same day that it will launch Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One, which includes the graphically revamped game Halo 2: Anniversary.

Microsoft states that Halo 2: Anniversary Original Soundtrack will be made available on CD, vinyl and digital download. In fact, you can pre-order the album now for $14.99 on iTunes. Microsoft says:

"For the Halo 2: Anniversary Original Soundtrack, 343 Industries Senior Audio Director, Paul Lipson, accompanied by Lennie Moore, Tom Salta, Brian Trifton and Brian Lee White, partnered with Skywalker Sound to adapt and re-record the iconic Halo 2 score created by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori. In addition, the soundtrack also features new tracks from Periphery's Misha Mansoor and guitar legend Steve Vai."

What soundtracks from games do you think stand alone as great music on their own terms?
