Ed Hunter Review

by Bret Adams

Ed Hunter is a rather unique, fan-friendly three-CD set from British heavy metal heavyweights Iron Maiden. Two discs feature the band's best songs as chosen by fans on the official website. The running order of the 20 songs mirrors the vote ranking. Obvious favorites such as "The Trooper," "Run to the Hills," and "2 Minutes to Midnight" are included, but pay special attention to underrated tracks like "Powerslave," "Hallowed Be Thy Name," and "The Evil That Men Do." All of Iron Maiden's studio albums are represented, as well as the beloved Live After Death. The third disc is the Ed Hunter shoot-'em-up CD-ROM computer game. The object of the game is to pursue Iron Maiden's skeleton mascot, Eddie, through worlds reflected in the band's songs and album covers. Ed Hunter will most likely appeal to diehards. Casual fans would probably be best served by either the one-disc or two-disc version of Best of the Beast.
