Guns and action... and shooting

FIrst off - you used a bit of my music! :D You're the first to do that... it brings a little tear of joy to my eye.
As a long-time fan of Bionic Commando, I was kind of hoping for more bionic arm-action... but given the shortness of the animation, complete with intro-drop from helicopter and so on, I'm satisfied. In my opinion, the animation is good as an iconographic little dive into the Bionic Commando universe - like you wrote in the description, it doesn't have much of a storyline, but hey, it's based on a game. I appreciate it for what it is, and that's action.

wow, phoenixdk!!!,it is cool to see a review by one of the music authors!
well,i found a great "adventurer feeling" in the guitar jam ,so it was perfect to something like credits, thanks for to do the cool song.

Very residents!

Honestly, at first I thought it was a speak-track from the Residents, but I guess not?
In short, fabulously executed visual style, complete with the grainy, dirty Cunningham-ish acid feel, and a Lynch-y weird progression. I probably would have opted for a more varied soundtrack, but that's really just a matter of taste. Excellent work!

Sqeezy responds:

Yeah, I failed with the soundtrack, lmao even though I tried. I'll work on my skills on that in the next time though. It needs some tuning.
But I'm very glad you did enjoy it nontheless, and built yourself a proper opinion about this.


Two words: CHUCK and NORRIS. That bit was so goddamn funny!

Nothing new.

Hey, it's not *BAD*, but I've seen (smaller) programs that do the same thing better from 15 years ago. How about some options:
Normal letters / CAPS randomisation, with a way to choose which type to favor
multiple variations on various letters
Only use "numeric" leet (1337)
Only use "sign" leet (|_££┼)
Include some (random) original caracters
and so on...

Fun, but not special.

Not bad, not extraordinary

Nice theme, from a fun game! The cover is rather precise, but not with a lot of surprises in there. Lovely touch with the guitar, I love that, but the entire mix is a bit "flat", there's room for a lot mroe in there.. not necessarily more instruments, just "more"! More smack in those drums, a deeper or more "toney" bass, maybe make it a bit more heavy metal-ish, some kind of overall direction.
Good theme, good execution, but the production could use some work.

ZombiePosessor responds:

Take note people, more of you should review like this guy. Thanks.

Yes it's a cover, but a good'un!

First off - this has obviously been done a million times before. That shouldn't stop you from doing it too, it just means that there are a lot of takes on it out there, some really good, some really bad.
This is one of the good ones! The loose playing makes it all the more interesting to hear, instead of a completely straight, metronome tight rendition of one of the most well known themes in videogame history. It's only one instrument though, and for one instrument, doing a cover, to reach the really high levels, it would have to be virtuoso in some way, which this isn't quite.
Still, good effort, with a nice result to show for it! Thoroughly enjoyed!

Just fantastic!

It's short, to the point, and fantasically great! Saxophone... I've said it before and I'll say it again - this just adds a whole new dimension to the original tune!
The handclaps and slightly un-tight, live-ish playing really adds to the minimalistic "theme" of this track. And it works great as a loop. What more is there to say? Superb!
