Hack of Pokémon: FireRed Version

Description:

Pokémon: Liquid Crystal has a wide range of awesome features for you to enjoy. This is what we think are the top ones.

  • Day & Night

Experience Real Time events and Visuals with the Day & Night system in Pokémon: Liquid Crystal! Travel through 5 different times including Morning, Day, Sunset, Evening and Night! Just just as you would expect from a Pokémon Crystal Remake, the sun goes down and comes up again based on Real Time. Weekly events happening all over, with certain things happening every day in the game! When it goes dark in the real world, the sun goes down in Pokémon: Liquid Crystal.

  • Relive Johto & Kanto

Make your way through the game while setting eyes on some of the Greatest Graphics & Maps ever seen in a Pokémon Game! Every single map from the Original Crystal has been Revamped and Remastered into a set of amazing Maps like none before. With new Tiles & Palettes bringing Johto & Kanto to life once again!

  • The Viridian Trainer House, Evolved

For those that can remember the Original Crystal, you got to re-battle your linked friends at the Viridian Trainer House. Since Linking isn’t a major part of Pokémon: Liquid Crystal, you battle yourself instead!

Unfortunately falls into common pitfalls.

Reviewed By: Chronosplit on 03 Jun 2016

This hack promises a lot. And for some of the way, it delivers! Unfortunately, this hack also has a lot holding it back:

  • It ends up looking rather ugly at points, because some of the graphics are brought over from the original Crystal with no modification whatsoever. Visual quality is rather sporadic at points, and mixed sources does not a good picture make.
  • The added plot really needs some work. New characters are horribly written and fall all too easily into the edgy stereotype (for lack of a better word to describe it) that we’ve sadly come to expect from hacks with new plots. The original plot also stands out from the new plot in a big way because it’s done better.
  • The mechanics here, much like Flora Sky for example, would become rather outdated in the face of recent developments. Using FireRed as a base ends up a detriment to the project even though a berry system is available, and the damage split can be viewed as unbalanced because there aren’t any new moves to round it out.
  • It feels like the project was quit before it was done, forever in Live Beta. Though the whole GSC game itself is playable, some sidequests are bugged. Orange Islands are unfinished.

Considering this isn’t nearly the first GSC remake out there (including projects still in progress and official offerings), there are far better choices in the pool.
