Well done, but I feel that the tune is a tad "empty". The source tune itself isn't too great, IMO.
I agree with NecroPolo. Great cover.

If you never played the game, the original SID may not ring the bell that much but having the old memories and countless hours spent in The Island back in the time, this remix stimulates the right nerve. Well executed orchestral work reflects the feel of the game. Vincenzo's XXI. Century skills and ears enhanced and refined the old intro tune into an awesome movie-style monumental entrée.

The game itself is one of the longest C64 RPGs ever created, in two levels: one for the gameplay and one for the development curve that is around 20 years (!) in the making

This remix is a wonderful tribute. Standing ovation from me!
