    You can't go wrong with a good orchestral piece like this.

    That track continues to give me goose bumps.

    It's still one of my favorite game menu music pieces ever. I actually posted this in the AAV thread and Hollywood responded as follows:
    Yeah I'm still good friends with the composer! Would love to bring it back!

    YES! if that's not AAV's theme (or some very cool, close rendition of it) then sorry but I already don't like it.
    If my trollery drives you crazy, you'd better put on your seatbelt.

    Yea I like that one better tbh, maybe it would be a cool easter egg but this is AAPG and it has its own theme, but no doubt, AA2 main menu sounded better!

    As much as I love the theme, it does have two negative strikes against it.
    1) It's not hummable. The most memorable themes are always able to be easily hummed and stick in your mind for days. From video games, take Super Mario or a slew of other 8-bit classics. For FPS games, take Battlefield 1942 or how about Duke Nukem?. Movies? Star Wars, Indiana Jones, we can go on and on. Catchy themes that one can hum. The America's Army Theme is a bit too complex in that respect.


    Here's another example of a classic FPS theme song that I feel like is an amazing song, but isn't memorable/catchy enough as a theme song:



    2) It takes too long to get going. The song really hits into high gear around 1:15 into it. The best part of the song really comes in around 2 minutes. IDK about most of you, but it's rare that I'm ever in the main menu for more than a minute in any game short of waiting for friends for match making.

    Oh, and if you want another theme that can easily be hummed and is catchy, look no further than the US Army Theme. If you can find a composer who is good enough to be able to somehow combine the US Army Theme with the America's Army Theme, that'd probably make a cool composition or if not that, then some sort of derivative song from the US Army Theme, since I think everyone in America knows this song at this point.

    I'm too accustomed to the current theme song, especially since I've never played some of the previous titles.
    It does sound nice though.
    Teamwork is essential, it gives the enemy other people to shoot at

    I came back to listen to this today. Gave me chills. When I heard this, I knew some serious pipeline was about to go down!
