I ordered this CD with no prior knowledge about it. I knew there was no movie called "Gamera 2000" but it was listed as Original Sound Tracks. I should have known better. Apparently this is the Original Sound Tracks to a game in Japan. I'm not sure if it's a coin operated, console or PC game.
The music itself isn't too bad. Some of it is Techno oriented and some definitely sounds like game music. Some of the cuts are pretty good. However nothing on this CD sounds like anything we are familiar with from the various Gamera movies. I feel this CD would appeal to teenagers that do a lot of video game playing. It should be avoided by the casual listener or anyone expecting something from the Gamera movies.

The Gamera 200 CD is the soundrack to the Sony Playstation Gamera game from 1997. The game is much like Panzer Dragoon for Sega Saturn. It is a plane shooter game. You play as a futuristic jet with Gamera as your partner (you can control some of Gamera's moves).
