FFX Battle Theme (MnP03)

Chernabogue: Balance between the various elements was a bit off, and several segments just didn't have enough sections. There's a really annoying, throbbing bass in places, made me thought I was hearing a crappy inkjet printer. The accompaniment was off in places, tiny bits in pitch and timing. Overall just felt less polished than Argle's submission.
GrapplingHook: Well, some parts worked. The synth bass was really nice in some places. But most of it not so much. Also, too many instrument changes make a remix sound incoherent. Balance was off here, too, and many parts again seemed to be missing elements to flesh out the soundscape.
HoboKa: Hey, not just a sound upgrade! It's nice to hear something with a little bit more fun in the arrangement. But a lot of the improvised accompaniment was pretty wacky, not in a good way.

Chernabogue: It's decent, yet inconsistent for me, on both energy and instrumentation. The choir replacing the organ is cool. There seems to be something big that's missing (to me) and I think it's mostly due to the low end being neglected. Usually I'm not a huge proponent of shoving basslines in every single remix, but this particular source tune relied very heavily on a strong bassline, and without a proper replacement of some form, it felt like a huge void for me. The brass was okay at some parts and excelled at others for sure. Your remix is definitely a good second place contender nonetheless and much better samples than my remix (albeit I thought mine had a bit more energy than yours muahaha :P)
GrapplingHook - Nice. I don't think that weird sounds are a bad thing per se, just needed to be brought out a lot more: I'd say that the lead instruments needed to made a lot louder. Still, it's an improvement from your first remix for sure. Maybe not as good as your MnP round 2 remix though. Keep at it Grapplyhookz :D

GrapplingHook's was more simple, but lacked energy and I was not a fan of the all-synth thing.
