The song for the UFC 114 promo is pretty sweet.

Vertigo

Akira, The Terminator (start from 2:55) and the Ecco the Dolphin series.

There are plenty of other soundtracks I enjoy within their respective films/games, such as Alien/s, Blade Runner and Unreal Tournament, but I don't find them nearly as good to listen to on their own. Partly because they're usually paced around what's happening on-screen (I edited my Terminator soundtrack to avoid this) and partly because there's often not enough content and variation around the stronger themes.
Or, in the case of UT, because I've listened to each track about a hundred times during the course of making improbably-clad gentlemen and gentlewomen suck the business end of my impact hammer.

West-Coast Killer

Best Sound track  imo is from a Vid-Game easy

Final-Fantasy 7''s soundtrack

Ever since they werent allowed to use the original MGS theme due to plagiarism (apparently) theyve had to keep coming up with new themes for the games and personally I think this one is better than MGS4. Brilliant.

Yes. But around the time of MGS3 somebody filed a lawsuit saying that the MGS theme was a rip-off. So the theme is very similar in MGS and MGS2 and then it got a reworking for MGS3 (but this new theme still used cues from the original one as well as using the MGS2 theme at the end of the credits for MGS3). MGS4 on the other hand did not contain any themes in the soundtrack using the old themes from previous games simpyl because they werent allowed to. Peace Walker unfortunately is the same.

Aah according to this article nothing ever came of it, but Konami were obviously nervous about the whole thing and chose to come up with new themes for future games rather than risk a lawsuit (so far MGS4 and MGS:PW). So while you might hear the old themes on the walkmans or ipods in MGS4 and MGS:PW you never hear them used in the games soundtrack, neither as reworked versions by harry-gregson williams or as the originals.

Dont think they had a leg to stand on really when you listen to this, so they backed down and decided to come up with new themes for future games.

MGS theme by Tappy

MGS2 theme by Harry Gregson-Williams. Notice how it takes a part of the original theme and makes it the main focus for the new theme, but its essentially the same theme, just reworked. The ending part is simply a slowed version of it, to make it more epic.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiPon8lr48U

MGS3 theme by Harry Gregson-Williams. The ending to this is again, exactly the same as the MGS2 theme and the bulk of it, is still based on cues from the original theme.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNVCD1dsnJI

MGS4 theme by harry Gregson-Williams. Still similar in style and tone, and doesnt feel out of place, but there are absolutely no parts of it where that revert to any of the original themes. Some of it deliberately tries to envoke the original themes without actually being the same.

MGS:PW theme by ? Still inkeeping with the other themes, but again contains no cues from them, and its completely new.

Never realized how good the score from the fourth game was until now. Shame they had to change it around, still.
