Videogame music makes Rocky II better

As we all know, Harry Gregson-Williams' Metal Gear Solid 2 theme makes anything epic. But what happens when you put it alongside something already epic? Say, the climactic Balboa vs. Creed fight from Rocky II? And what happens if by some miracle of audio-visual synergy both of those elements synch up better than The Wizard of Oz and Dark Side of the Moon, without the need for any tricksy editing whatsoever? Goose bumps and man-tears all around the GamesRadar office. That's what happens.

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
