    “features re-orchestrated music from the two games”
    Except it’s not a Re-Orchestration, just a Remaster making the audio sound much more clear.

    IMO DP had some of the weakest music in the series.

    I really disliked Diamond and Pearl until Platinum came around and changed my mind, but the music was great.

    • Takane Shijou

      I’ve seen people mention this quite a bit about Diamond/Pearl, but what did they do in Platinum to fix the two previous versions and such?

      I have a copy of Pearl sitting around that a friend gave to me a few weeks back, so I was wondering if it’s worth playing through that version or just trying to look for a copy of Platinum and such.

        Well, Platinum is less slow than D/P (still kind of slow compared to Gen 5 games, but not so much). Then the story was rearranged in a much better way, and the region is a little bit fixed too (Sinnoh is terrible as a region anyway).

        You can play the Pearl version if you want to, but in my personal opinion Platinum is much better.

    Generation IV’s music is pretty meh to me, though I found some tracks to be enjoyable to listen to.

    Personally, I’m more excited for the Black and White OST coming out in April (they seem to be releasing these on a monthly basis). While not as memorable as the first 3 generations in terms of music, I loved a majority of the Generation V songs, especially N’s battle theme.

    Sinnoh Confirmed!

    Holy shit, the music in Sinnoh was awesome. I loved the jazzy feel of the soundtrack. Pokemon X managed to nearly make me cry with its Jubilife City arrangement.

    I saw Diamond and Pearl and then music together, and all I can think of now is Prince going on a Pokemon adventure. Every single Pokemon of his would be a shiny. They would just TURN into one in his magnificent presence.

  • Jonah Paley

    Before I decide to buy this, I’d like to confirm a few things.
    1) This isn’t actually a reorchestration, right?
    2) Is there any difference between the Japanese release and this one besides the track names? It looks like all the tracks are the same length (a shame, my biggest complaint about the Japanese OST for Diamond/Pearl is that the tracks were too short and should have looped at least once). I’m assuming the remastering mentioned is in comparison to the in-game tracks and thus is nothing new if I already have the Japanese release?
