Audio Lead | Composer | Sound Design
This was the last FIFA game before I moved to the NHL team – this was probably the best sound I was able to get out of the Genesis/Megadrive. By this stage we were really pushing what the machine could do. It was originally designed to only place one sample at a time, but Kevin Pickel found a way to make it do four, albeit at 11khz mono 4bit.
This is also the game where I came up with idea to have celebration sounds on the controller buttons after you score 🙂
When I played this I was surprised how the menus and the sound were so “modern” – I was used to World Cup Italia 90 :p
The celebration choices were fun at first, but would become indifferent once the novelty was gone.
Was this soundtrack released in physical support or streaming/download?
I sometimes listen to it on youtube, still sounds great.
Your work was simply awesome and amazing on Fifa!!!
And your idea was brilliant!!!
We’re putting voices on the sounds.
I think the songs from this game deserve a remix or two. Especially the intro song, and one other that I know too well.
The videos don’t work 🙁
Anyway, I found them on youtube. Those songs are AWESOME, I may be playing one of them with my band someday, I’ll let you know.
