Chaos Field, for the uninitiated (including me!), is a Japan-only shooter that was released in 2004 by Milestone. The game was later released for the Gamecube, PS2, Wii and others but the Dreamcast version came first, possibly due to the game being a NAOMI conversion. While Chaos Field generally garnered average review scores, that the Dreamcast was still receiving official releases in 2004 proves how popular the system remained in it's homeland. Technically, the USA is Sega's homeland...but you get the idea.
Anyway, people who ordered Chaos Field from Sega Direct received not only the game in it's lovely jewel case, but also a special edition bonus CD containing remixed tracks from the main game. Last week I managed to bad this bonus CD in an eBay auction for a few pounds...and here it is:
While there are only four tracks (with a total running time of around 12 minutes), this is a nice item to own. I had never even heard of this special edition CD before spotting the auction and I'm guessing the reason I got it so cheap is that a lot of other people were also ignorant to its existence. The tracks themselves are all suitably 'dancey,' and you can totally imagine them pumping away in the background as you face boss fight after boss fight in the actual game. I say 'imagine' because I haven't personally had the pleasure of playing Chaos Field just yet. Hopefully this will change in the future.
