Hades responds:

Glad to hear you liked it, dude!


2 things that I have to address when writing this review.
1: This is a great song. I love the feel to it. I guess I could call it sorrowful, but whats the fun in that? (sorry for the unrelated pun comin up) I'm lovin it!

2: HxH, I love banjo Kazooie and i've played it soooo many times, but I don't remember a level called Mad Monster Mansion. Mind tellin me if your talkin bout the Banjo Kazooie for the Nintendo 64, or if your talkin bout a different one. (I don't think there is a different one, actually. Although there is a Banjo Tooie, which I have played a ton of times also.)

Hades responds:

To tell you the truth, I never played the game HxH mentioned, so I don't really know which song he was referring to. The gloomy atmosphere however, is definitely there, so yeah... Glad you liked it!

A good song with a great mood

I like the mood that the song sets.
For me, it was kind of a creepy gloomy song.
Hard for me to describe, but I liked it very much.

Also, it immediately made me thing of the Banjo Kazooie level Mad Monster Mansion. I haven't played that game in ages...good memories.

I just imagine a bunch of monsters hobbling around in some old spooky mansion.

Hades responds:

Yeah, 'gloomy' is a part of the atmosphere I was aiming for. Nice to hear it awoke some nice memories for you. ;D Thanks a lot for the review!


Hmm ... I don't know why, but I do not like it ...

Hmm ... I think its a bit boring.

Hades responds:

Well, I suppose that's just a matter of personal opinion.

This is the stih

''Dont stop get it get it!''

Hades responds:

Well, I think I managed to interpret this review properly, so thanks. ;D
