ReCast FF3: War of the Magitek

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

ReCast is a ’standing on shoulders’ half-hack that assembles various material created by members of the FF3SNES hacking community. Originally intended as a simple graphics patch to fix FF3’s combat art clash, ReCast has grown into a “vanillish” scenario adjustment, making Banon a more prominent character and adding a second story split to the latter half of the game to adjust Ruin pacing. Several characters are rewritten and some scenes are expanded or moved to different parts of the game (such as “Taming of the Gau” being moved to the World of Balance).

Additionally, spells were changed and natural magic was given to more characters. Enemies were made vulnerable to more status ailments and the Zombie status had its mechanics altered. This isn’t intended to be a major re-balance of combat or a hard-type patch, so the difficulty of the game should be roughly comparable to the original (it is slightly harder).

Lacking enough enjoyment to warrant a play through

Reviewed By: RayofJay on 30 Jun 2022

First off, I greatly appreciate the work that goes into every hack that’s posted!

I agree with some of the other reviews that the tiny sprites take so much away from the game. The enemy field just seems empty space in comparison to when the sprites were their original size. It does a better sense of enemy size when compared to each other, but I much prefer the larger-than-life images. If anything, the player sprite size should’ve been increased (though that likely would’ve caused sprite limit issues on the SNES…).

I played until roughly the end of the 3 scenario section of the game. There just wasn’t enough to keep me going. I really wanted to enjoy the hack..
