Video: iPad Arrangement of 'Leaving Earth' from Mass Effect 3

Computer game music can sometimes rival the production values and emotional impact of feature film soundtracks, often being written by professional film score composers, as is the case with BioWare's Mass Effect 3.

We were impressed at how great this sounded, what do you think?
