Chalis was okay. I have never been a fan of orch hits though. So I guess that was a personal preference for this reasoning. It also felt too slow, not enough energy like the original had.

Chalis - This is fairly liberal, but I gave you second spot, as this is a pretty kick ass take and I can tell you tried pretty darn hard. It is slower than the original, but all the notation is retained and I think
the mood is mostly the same, if not given a more epic feel. The mix is quite muddy at the lower ends; you may want to look into editing EQ/Bandwidth for FL Studio. It's in the mixer channels, Fruity Paremetric EQ 2. Look it up - a very key resource for mixing and mastering :)
Kat - The 1:00 mark reminds me of Vega's theme from Street Fighter 2 lol. It kinda goes into automation mode at the 1:30 area. Overall It's not too bad, I could see this hitting 2nd spot for other voters.

Always had a soft spot for orchestrals. Despite the low quality samples I thought it was pretty well done. Felt like the orchestral hits at the start were a bit too loud, and I think a self made orchestral hit would've been better than a pre-blended one, but that's just me. I really enjoyed the part at 2:00. It felt a lot different than the original and had a sort of epic feel to it. I think it almost changed the mood too much, but just almost.
I wasn't a huge fan of the pumping/ducking, but it felt like it kept the mood pretty well and I enjoyed the smooth square synth lead.
