TESTIMONIALS OVER THE YEARS

 

Justin Leingang, Lead Designer, Amaze Entertainment

“I can honestly say that including Will on our team was the best decision we could have ever made. Not only is he great to work with in all regards, but he has an unmatched ability to take a core vision, flesh it out, and substantially enhance it. His music really solidifies the game. I hope that the future holds many opportunities for us to create with Will on the team again.”

“Will was an absolute pleasure to work with. His music is memorable, it always hits the right mood and I never get tired of hearing his scores. He quickly adapts to any technical limitations and is a true professional. If I have my choice I would choose to use him on all of my projects.”

KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child Review, PVC

“It hasn’t been since Mario 64 that I have heard such an effectively interactive soundtrack.”

RAGE Review, VicoGaming.com

“Considering the game is called RAGE, the introduction cinematic completely surprised me. Not only does it perfectly establish the framework for the story, but is also accompanied by haunting piano music that invokes an actual emotional response. Simple, sad and incredibly effective; it is one of my favourite introduction cinematics of any game.”

X-Men: The Official Game DS Review, IGN

“X-Men: The Official Game’s soundtrack is by far the coolest aspect of the game. Whether it’s the sound engine or simply Amaze hiring a good soundtrack composer, X-Men’s tunes shine through the rest of the game’s mediocrity.”
