    That game is weird and at the same time considered one of the only good games for the system.

    The Nintendo 64 didn't have proper sound chip either, so "a lot" (well some) of the music is made with FastTracker 2. The funny thing is that the sound effects and music code had to run on the same processor (Reality Signal Processor) as the graphics engine. Sound, naturally, wasn't more important than graphics, so a lot of games sounded bad compared to the PS1 with its awesome sound chip.

    Yeah. PS1 of course can also stream redbook audio, so it certainly has better sound. The sound in the N64 Zelda games is just awesome though. Great music and ambient sounds. They even support Dolby Surround.
