He's created a score that has epic sweep; from the lonely ambience of the wasteland to dramatic fights for survival."
Fallout 3 features one of the most realised game worlds ever created. Create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland.

In addition to scoring a number of best-selling video games, Zur's music has been featured in many high-profile projects including Hollywood film trailers, network television productions, CGI movies, and symphony concerts. Most recently, Zur has composed music for CBS' 'Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side' TV webisode series as well as the Marvel Kids webisodes for 'IRON MAN'.
