Stella Deus Original Soundtrack

Stella Deus Original Soundtrack
[Audio CD, 1 Disc]
Source: Stella Deus [PS2]
Composer: Masaharu Iwata, Hitoshi Sakimoto
Release Date: 2004
Label: Aniplex

Stella Deus is a tactical RPG that was released for the PS2, and is considered the spiritual successor of Hoshigami. While the game was produced by Atlus, obvious comparisons are drawn to Final Fantasy Tactics. The soundtrack is even composed by Sakimoto and Iwata. While Stella Deus has an interesting story, the gameplay is more linear than Tactics. The soundtrack as a whole is also not as strong as Tactics.

However, the soundtrack is still good. Many modern RPGs that fall under a banner other than SquareEnix or Atlus tend to suffer from 'who cares' music syndrome. Stella Deus has a solid soundtrack that succeeds in making the game feel vibrant while still retaining Sakimoto and Iwata's recognizable thematic work.
