    "If you like flute and piano, then this is a really simple and elegant soundtrack that could be played anytime, anywhere. It's really soothing classical music that I like to listen to as I work (words get me distracted). As for best video game soundtrack? I don't know. It pretty much depends on your taste. Sometimes, with a video game, I need something more exciting. "
