I decided to change it up a little bit, I replaced all the sounds with classical music completely! I hope I please you Newgrounds :) PLEASE REVIEW!!!


this is great!

it sounds really cinematic.
very nostalgic.reminds me of the orchestra in scream 4.
for the other guy that says this isn't loud enough,i hear it perfectly and i get chocked when i hear the loud parts >.>
this track really reminded me of the forsaken fortress in legend of zelda wind waker.
there isn't much to say on this,i'm out of ideas D:!ne ways,could you make a forsaken fortress remix like this one :D?

For you and your review, I'll go and see what I can do, I hear it just fine as well. Thank you very much for your review :)

smooth, abrupt, too quiet, needs more snare!

Originality: N/A [2 point value added to potential Misc. category rating]

Cohesiveness: It flows. Simple as that. It sounds as if I'm snooping in a forbidden place like a castle...oh wait.... +2 of 2

Musicianship/Skill: For what it is (a 64-bit video game music piece), it is recreated in a satisfactory light. As a fan of Zelda Reorchestrated, I can appreciate works like this that take old MIDI files and, well, reorchestrate them. However, the ending is far too abrupt. I think that a creative ending that came from inside _you_ would have been great. +1 of 2

Quality of Track: It's a tad quiet. I listen to all songs I review at the same volume level, and this is definitely on the low end of the spectrum. Other than that, there are no problems detracting from the song's "listenability". +1 of 2

Misc.: This follows the original nicely, although I remember it being a bit more lively. One more thing. That snare needs to be much, much more prominent. The percussion added so much to the original that is almost inaudible here. +3 of 4.

Total: 7/10; giving a vote rating of 3.

Ironclover responds:

The main idea was to add a sense of fear to the listener and try to make it nostalgic as much as possible. It wasn't to make an exact copy of the original, otherwise there would be no point in remaking it. I do thank you for your review :)
