There are some really good points in the video, but it needs more feelings and less action in sone parts.
The music does fit the game and I like how you tried to sync it with the footage.

I would show the flowers turning red right after Big Boss shot The Boss in the end, the silent in the music and the ending footage really fit well, but that has to happen after the shot, not before.

Well, I liked your video, kudos.

Yeah I ran into a few problems. I want to add more vocals parts, especially Eva's speech at the end about why the Boss did what she did but most of the really emotional parts already had a music overlaying it that would clash with my music track. I wanted the last part to be all about the the flower field and the events leading up (and after) to Boss's death and the final sound to be the gun shot. That meant important events that happened after (field turning red, snake standing over her body, saluting grave) had to be added before. But I think that it is cool to hope back and forth events (and time) before ending on why those events happened.

But yeah a lot of the emotional connection is lost without the vocals. I just couldn't get them without the MGS music in the background. Tried a few techniques to cut out the music but didn't work

Well, I think you should indeed do it as you feel like, but I would like it better after the shot, exploring the silence, the music also does explore silence so it would be cool, and I think that once scene simply needs the other, it's beautiful, but ending with the shot can also be good, but the red flower scene should get a good exposition at least, maybe you could stop the song for a while after a high note and throw it there, than come back woth the music after it.

But the song is missing vocals in the video? Well, if you update it, less you know.

Bolded - Not sure what you mean. The vocals in the games had the MGS musical score running through them, so any time I added the vocals, the MGS music would clash with The XX music. I really wanted to add parts of Eva's speech to the video because it carried a lot of emotion but I couldn't (because of the MGS musical score running through it).

But yeah, I did ponder on the field turning red at the very end. It was just a direction I didn't take. I did so much chopping and changing to get the right balance, I hope I chose good enough. It's hard to gauge what can make it better sometimes without another opinion. And I did try out an extended pause for snake being thrown off of bridge (first silent part) but it didn't work at all. Like you I like the idea of using silence to good effect.
