Songs of the Warrior: The Mechwarrior 2 Soundtrack
Soundtrack album by Gregory Alper & Jeehun Hwang
Released 1995
Genre Video game music

The Mechwarrior 2 soundtrack is the score to the second installment of Activision's Battletech-based sci-fi strategy/simulation Mechwarrior series. It received near universal praise from game reviewers and has been described as one of the greatest game soundtracks of all time. It is generally considered to be a cult classic of game music.[1][2]

The music was stored as standard audio CD tracks allowing the music to be played on a standard Audio CD player. Track one contains the program data and should be skipped.

The soundtrack was composed by Gregory Alper and Jeehun Hwang, who has composed music for numerous PC games. A remix version of the song entitled "Labrea, Circle of Equals (Trial of Grievance)" (aka "Arkam Bridge") was used later in Civilization II in the Hoover Dam Wonder video.

The track listings below reflect the original 1.0 DOS PC-releases of the games. Some variations of the games have the same music while others deviate. For instance, the Titanium version of the original game has the same tracks arranged in a different order, the Titanium version of Ghost Bear's Legacy has five tracks replaced with new material, and the Titanium version of Mercenaries has roughly a minute truncated from the end of most every track; the 1.05 standard DOS/Win95 version of Mercenaries also does this.

The PlayStation version borrows heavy metal tracks from Mercenaries.
