Rick looks awesome

Reviewed By: CRT_rex on 10 Oct 2021

I never liked the new masks, and the second one is my least favorite (along with the Turbografx-16 port from the original game). I get it, besides the fear of lawsuits, the game was trying to find its own identity, and part of it was a good mask design (which I think the 3rd and 2010 games did well, I like it), but darn it, I love the original hockey mask and the looks of it. After all, it is what the original developers actually had in mind when they created the game, there’s no arguing there.

Now, the colors here are a change of atmosphere for sure, but I do prefer the original darker colors as well, especially after watching a side-by-side comparison video. To be honest, my interest here lies with having classic Rick only, and not really anything else. So personally, I would have made three patches: fixed colors + classic Rick, fixed colors only and the one missing: classic Rick only. I spoken with a few people who would have liked that as well.

That being said, I don’t want to be a Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer here, as making those hacks involves a lot of hard work and can be a very thankless job, but I tend to go with the “as many options as possible” route, so that everyone can get what they want, even if it’s a niche interest that appeals to a small segment of people. However, that was not the author’s intention and I respect that. Still, the dream of a classic Rick change standalone hack still lingers. I’ll look into it, see what it would take to make it happen.
