Smooth synths to massacre terrorists by.
It was weird because…
A Die Hard game should surely be all cinematic bombast and rousing orchestration. Instead, the soundtrack to Probe’s Die Hard Trilogy is all soaring synth, moody electronica and rolling dance beats - check here for proof.

With its layered, synth-heavy sound and MIDI guitars, Die Hard Trilogy sounds nothing like an '80s action movie (or indeed Die Hard the movie), but it does sound a helluva lot like the '80s. Or at least a beefed-up '90s tribute to it. Which, is exactly what the game itself was.
The soundtrack still has a cult following online with countless remixes surfacing on chiptune sites and YouTube. Start your investigations here, officer.
