Nice intro and change about 00:30. The second section (until 1:40) is a bit less defined. I like the third part, good contrast. There is a bridge then, and a final part (from 3:00).

In general it's nice, I miss some "big" change, a modulation for example. It would make a section more interesting. Also, it's like a sequence of themes, no look back.

As mentioned above, intro is very well done.
From 0:32 it sounded a bit loud, that one instrument, but then it recovered. Didn't last long enough to be terrible.

I applaud you on making this epic with the instruments used, not very easy to make them sound war-themed, good mixing.

Good be a great sort of a background soundtrack for games; specially because it doesn't have so many different parts and/or themes, so looping around certain sections before they switch (which is always done in games to fit how much time players take).

Good job overall.

watch the timing of the notes! the brass and the strings aren't timed on each other. if these were actually timed (and I said something stupid here) then make the attack less and the release a bit longer so the legato is more fluent. make the short notes near 1 minute spiccato so their timing is more differentiable. <- this one is REALLY important!

near 3 minutes the strings play a REALLY unrealistic part (the arpeggiated part) with legato samples. this doesn't work at all. make it first of all slower and spiccato or maybe even staccato. I think that will improve it a lot.

the legato strings are just playing one line. maybe make some more so they sound more realistic and (chamber) orchestra-like.

synthesizers were spot on though. well done on that part.

 

sorry if this was a bit direct or rude.

 

best of regards
