Very old school, and the change-up to L/R was very nice throughout the ending of the track. Takes me back to the old NES and Arcade gaming days :-)
Now, as far as it "missing" something...not really missing anything here when you're going retro with music. You've got enough going on in this track as it is and in my honest opinion, it's balanced. The "heartbeat" effect though could be dialed down just a little bit as it does get overpowering around 1:15 - 1:20. My sub-woofer ACTUALLY MOVED ITSELF with this track!
Overall, a sexy piece :-)
Not bad, reminds me of MS-DOS game music. Kinda reminds me of Doom. Something feels missing though I'm not sure it's in the melody or instruments. The percussion could be louder. At times it's overpowered by the loud synths. Overall good effort, nice work.
Thanks, RF! 4 stars is very generous :D
Edit: Actually, I'm going to append this response a bit. I definitely feel what you mean by something missing, both in melody and instruments. I used a lot of similar-sounding NES and SNES soundfonts in this song, and the melody is more akin to a generic trance song than it is chiptune.

Wow! This is really good! It does sound a lot like Street Fighter! Love it! :D
