Soundtrack for a retro-ish RPG

I've been working on some tracks for an RPG; the person said it's supposed to be similar to SNES-era games. The set I posted below contains all the tracks I'm pitching to the programmer. Could I get some opinions on a few of the tracks? I especially need feedback on the tracks towards the bottom of the list; they're more recent.

Well, I do think you could make a character theme(s), or have you already? It would help with the narrative of the game, maybe.

Really enjoyed it man the part at 2:09 was probably my favourite part, the intro melody is repeated a bit too much but that's preference, nice track, would fit well with a game off a gameboy thanks for the crit

These tracks are all really good IMO, and I like the use of a motif. However, A lot of them are a little too fast paced and bumpy. I'm not sure of your knowledge of these types of video games so forgive me if this seems pretentious, but old-school style RPGs on the NES and SNES are generally known for their slower pace. And depending on the setting of the RPG, if it's in a medieval setting as is typical for RPGs, one would need to tap into more of a soothing, enchanting, Baroque-esque sound. Although if it's futuristic like Phantasy Star, then in may fit.

That being said, an RPG can have faster songs as well. "Fading Out" would make a kick-ass battle theme if there's going to be turned-based Final Fantasy-esque battles. I can see "Upon These Hills" and "Off Balance" fitting in somewhere as well.

Some of the other ones are a little to techno/fast to fit in an old-style RPG IMO. I can totally see this whole soundtrack on an action side-scroller such as Megaman, though. But if I was transversing a dungeon to some of those faster tracks it would have me biting my nails.

okay... so its sounds like castlevania paying galaga sometimes, with the bit in the 2 minute part sounding a bit like last resort by papa roach before getting all weird and bright-y, like a castle crashers if it was on gameboy; i have no idea what kind of game this would be and it might confuse me with the objectives but overall, this music would make up for any shitty game i've ever played... if it was on there.... don't know if this helped but if you crit mine, i'm only looking for yes bueno or no bueno soooo linky -> http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...716408511581160

As a long time fan of old school video game music, I must say that I really enjoyed that. Well done.
