The River City Girls soundtrack continues the WayForward tradition by being an absolute banger. There’s no bad track in the entire game, and the music certainly enhances the experience. Things are made even more immersive with plenty of tracks featuring vocals, creating a soundtrack you’ll never forget.
In an interview with Destructoid, River City Girls composer Megan McDuffee spoke about the decision to include so many vocal tracks in the game.
The idea of having a few all-vocal synthpop songs was floated by the game’s director; he really liked my voice and thought it would be a good idea to incorporate some vocals. I think it was an excellent choice. The fact that he’s tied to the rockstar villain NOIZE is such a fun little detail that I’ve never really seen in other games before!

The River City Girls soundtrack would be killer even without the vocal tracks, but these tracks really take things above the edge. Even if you don’t intend to play the game, do yourself a favor and listen to the River City Girls soundtrack. It’s certainly worth the effort, and it easily made its way into my regular music rotation.
