Can we quit it with this already? Clearly the original was the best and these posts are just to fluff up your RSS a bit. I dont know what your post-per-day requirement is, but if it's only going to be this garbage, ask someone to lower it.

Yeah I already regret it. Sorry, Ken.

I just dont see how anyone is entertained by these, especially after watching the real one in High Definition et al.

Long day. :P

I think this one is awesome. Let's break it down:

Composition - Awesome, the piece fits the atmosphere perfectly
Syncing - the various properties of the piece syncs with the on screen action admirably, especially for being simply an overlay. (from the piano[not the instrument, btw] intro to the climax at the end)
General tone - The beginning starts off slowly as to build up drama to create this mood of something being "amiss" and gradually getting worse during the mezzo-forte which is shown on-screen with silhouettes of Locust popping up, as the piece works up into the fortissimo the giant creature emerges and at the tail end of this crescendo. The piece also calandoes beautifully into the logo and Xbox 360 tag at the end.

As a composure, speaking holistically, this actually measures up better than the original.

Bravo! Bravo!

I liked this thanks for posting it. the music set a very helpless mood which you really feel as the main guy is towered over by the monster

Clever idea? Somebody edit the actual video already! Putting music on a pre-existing video is NOT clever. It's lazy.

I don't want to, but I have to: it's really enough now ;)
And I don't know why it's called Odyssey Remix? What's that?

I think this is bad version of this great Sarabande.
It's by Georg Friedrich Händel, a great composer of the Barock. A Sarabande is a dance form from the Barock ... ok, ok ... I'll quit being a smart a**.

But check out the version of this Sarabande from Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon. Awesome how they interpreted it.

hmm... has anyone tried to use "Don't take your guns to town" by Johnny Cash with this yet? It might work well.

Wow, it's like the song was written for the advert. Although it doesn't have as much dramatical impact as the original, it's an excellent fit.
