Eupfhoria - Marathon Soundtrack Remake
Eupfhoria is a fully re-instrumented and re-scored soundtrack mod for the first Marathon. This replacement tries to remaster the original soundtrack while retaining the original feel. It IS the tracks you know and love, as it's based off the original MIDI files. Most tracks should fuller and more atmospheric, hopefully a bit like Marathon's younger brother, Halo.
To see if this is for you without downloading, you can stream it all here: Eupfhoria - Full Album Stream
Installation is simple, just replace your Music folder found in the Marathon directory. Backup your original folder if you want to go back to the originals.
NOTE: Don't use this for your first playthrough. Really. This is for people who've played through it before and want a new experience. Updating those pesky textures is one thing, but save this for your second playthrough.
Work Definitely Went Into This

The issue though is that it sounds a bit TOO atmospheric. A lot of the notes have too much of a cross-fade that it sounds a bit disorganized, for lack of a better term. I'm not really a fan of rearranged percussion either (particularly on New Pacific Reprise).
I will say, this rendition of said track does get the notes much better than other remakes I have heard, but overall, it is just very tough to beat the original Quicktime ones.

For what I am hearing currently it's pretty good. It fits the theme I know of the game so it's a 4 for effort.
