Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

What this hack does:

This hack is a ‘deluxe’ version of Final Fantasy II for the SNES. FF2US always felt somewhat lacking and incomplete but full of potential. This hack rectifies that by adding a ton of additions to the base game while keeping the majority of the main story intact and the feel of FF2US the same.

List of features, additions and changes:

  • 32 New Weapons! Including Ultima Weapon!
  • 18 New Spells! Also revamped existing spells!
  • 20 New Bosses!!
  • New Areas! New Side Quests!
  • New Events! New Endgame Scenarios!!
  • New Equipment Screen with DETAILED buffs and stats!!
  • New attack/swing/spell animations!
  • New weapon graphics!! New sound effects!
  • New maps, new areas and new edits to overworld maps!
  • New events! New enemies!! Sprint with the Y button!!
  • New commands for characters. New Armors and Gears!
  • Revamped shops/equipment and balanced their progression.
  • Dark Knight Cecil now dual-wields and is 2-handed!!
  • Edge is now buffed and very potent offensively!
  • Rydia has also been buffed(slightly). It’s a surprise!
  • Cecil has been buffed as a tank.
  • Rosa can use more White Mage combative gears.
  • Kain has new offensive buffing spells at end-game and new commands as he rejoins the team.
  • Rare items and summons now drop much easier! This hack is designed as a ‘play-through’ without grinding.
  • Many enemies now have meaningful rare drops, and all end-game enemies now have rare ultimate drops!
  • New thrown weapons and back-row weapons!
  • Lots of secrets that can lead to early acquirement of better equipment!
  • Few minor tweaks to the base game such as save points, etc.
  • Useless finds now replaced with good items or equipment!
  • All weapons/armors used by characters no longer in party are now usable by at least one character from the end-game party!
  • MOST items/equipment are now non-missable. Meaning they will be acquirable in some ways at end-game.

The definitive version of Final Fantasy 4!

Reviewed By: Echoherb on 26 Aug 2019

This is currently the ultimate version of FF2 SNES, and probably the ultimate version of FF4 period.

The additional features don’t feel tacked on, but instead feel like they should have been part of the game in the first place. The balance is perfect, the game becomes more challenging as you go along, but feels completely fair. The characters now all feel useful and meaningful and fun to use. There’s no grind required whatsoever and no more missables, but for people who do like to grind, it’s heavily rewarded by rare equipment and items.

Also, I didn’t really see this mentioned anywhere else, but this uses the excellent Project II translation of the game, which for me was a really important factor in deciding whether to play this version.

As it stands, I believe this hack is currently the perfect way to play the 2D version of FF4.
