- "A mix of good and bad" (by Dr. Spa, 2 Jul 2004) [7/10]
blazeman - Classical rubbish, after some time it gets better :)
iceman stage - Good but, god the saw wave is so loud
megaman from frostbite - it starts off like march-music, really creative with the strings
cutman - it shows you how nes-music can be so great. Qum is just excellent at remixing
Elecman - LOUD! - And all of the Square-waves are like LOUDER!
elecman - That's better... Really nice remix by Qum, but defently not as good as cutman :)
megaman vs elecman - Come on zalza, you can do better than that!
MM1 - Bombman - Great Song. Samples: nothing but triangle, square and SHHHHHH!
And of Corse Casey McCann ones!!!
Fireman - Well, This is the best!!! Nearly all of the Megaman 1 melodies arent that good (except for cutman) but this, this is excellent! The start is better than the beggining though... What! 33 seconds!!! Gimme a break!
Iceman - As like the one by Nitro everything is perfect except for that ear-peircing saw-tooth/wave thing. CHANGE IT!!!
Boss Selecter - Used in alot of Mega Man sequels but I just thought that I should dump it in Megaman 1 seeing as though it is the most well known sequel of Megaman... Btw.. The music, Well... First of all a little twiddle of the volume is reccamended then it should be ok, but when it comes to playing it, it doest sound that good - 99% Capcom/Bun Bun's fault for such a dumb melody. The only good part is the last 2 seconds!!! This is because it was a tinsy little ending added by Casey which wasn't actually used in Mega Man... Plus it is only 12 puny seconds!!! Honestly! Capcomm!
Well, Let's just say Cutman, by Qum is THE BEST!
- "A mixed bag..." (by Tiberious, 31 Jan 2005) [7/10]
Well, for starters, Air Man and blazeman.xm don't belong in this archive (Air Man's from 2, and there is no Blaze Man)...
Well, let's start with some good ones:
Mega Man - ElecMan.xm: This one's nice and accurate. I'd say ~95%... then again, I'm biased... I made it (I think a little thievery has been taking place, as I know I didn't upload it here).
Bombman.s3m: Nod a bad little cover. Shame it's missing the intro. I'd like to know how he'd have handled it.
Boss Selector.mod: a little over-the-top for a remix, and drags on longer than an intro screen would last.
Fireman.mod: starts off soft, but gradually comes to normal volume. The remix is also well done.
Iceman.s3m: I think we've heard techno remixes done to death. Doesn't bring anything new to the table.
Iceman4.mod: the fact that everything either on the left or right speaker, with NOTHING in the middle detracts from what would be a Rockman Complete Works-worthy remix.
Metalmannes.xm: whoops... another one that belongs in Mega Man 2. Not bad, though.
MM1 - Bombman.s3m: sounds like yet another NESMusa MOD. A quick look at the sample list confirms it. Has a sound effect logged in it. Not a good thing.
Mvselec.xm: Interesting remix, but not the whole thing.
qum - cutman.xm: more accurate to the original than some of the others I've heard...
skullseabase.xm: ANOTHER wrong game file?! Who filters this stuff? This belongs in Mega Man 3 for the Game Boy (AKA Rockman World 3).
