- "None can outrun or equal the power of the original" (by rambutaan, 10 Nov 2002) [2/10]
Great game and it had a great soundtrack based on the 80s hit Megablast by Bomb the Bass. These remixes unfortunately are rather low quality. bomb_the_bass.mod manages to stay on the beat although the bitrate is low. miniblast.mod deviates considerably from the original melody and is unfortunately quite simplistic. Xenon 2 - Megablast.mod 's tempo is too slow and the final mod, xenon2.xm is okay except in the last 10 seconds or so. I recommend the original track if you really want to remind yourself of Xenon 2 rather than these remixes.

Who knows how long I've been searching for this track and now I found it!
It's really great, although it seems a little slow...

Simply incredible, David Whittaker for their quality and quantity has demonstrated to be the best composer for video games of the 80. Xenon2 song, it could have been a hit of the radio.
As curiosity, has somebody seen "Assault On Precinct 13" ? Well, we have to thank the original melody to John Carpenter.
9 points for Xenon 2 and David Whittaker

Mega shooting game many years ago. Music is little poor. Maybe some musicians can make remixes of this tunes. I think more channels, better sounds and little changes to melody we have great tune

Facts / description
Info from user leilei to tune leixen2.mod:
It's a retracked version of the original in-game song as accurate as I could make it.
The original game used some proprietary format, so this is all by ear and sample rip.
