If you are a Pokémon fan then you have probably already heard of Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter. There is certainly no shortage of rom hacks when it comes to Pokémon, but I would have to say that this one is one of the best. This is especially true if you are a fan of the Pokémon Adventure manga series. It takes what we know and love about Pokémon and makes it even better and it is well worth checking out.
Taking An Artistic License
While Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter is based on the Pokémon Adventure manga series, the creator has taken a bit of artistic license to make things flow in a video game a little better.
We play as Red and get to experience the story from his point of view. An encounter with Mew leads Red on a quest to become the best Pokémon trainer ever. From Kanto to Orange Archipelago to dealing with Team Rocket and your main rivals (man I freaking hate green!) the story is very well done and a ton of fun.
Setting Fire To Red!
The game is based on Pokemon Fire Red for the Game Boy Advance and like all rom hacks, there is only so much even the most talented rom hacker can do. Still, Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter has added a few things that do make it stand out from the game it was based on. To start with, the graphics have been updated and are arguably better than what we had before.
You have a nice amount of character customization, there are new battle backgrounds, a day and night system, and much more. So, while it is a rom hack, a ton of work has gone into this to make it feel as much like a new game as possible.
What About The Pokémon?
Of course, you have to assemble your dream team of Pokémon in Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter and that is a ton of fun to do. You start with a Poliwhirl, but who makes up your team of five is ultimately up to you. I liked how there are fusions and mega evolutions in this game that certainly kept me wanting to push forward.
Bringing It To Life
Again, this is a rom hack, but the updated visuals really do give this a lot more personality. There have been a few rom hacks based on the Pokémon animated series and I think that this one walks a fine line between looking like the manga as well as the animated series. I was actually very impressed with how well the game looked.
I have played a ton of rom hacks when it comes to Pokémon and like most other people, I would have to rank Pokémon Adventure Red Chapter pretty high on that list. This has clearly been made by someone that knows what they are doing, but more importantly than that, it has been made by a fellow Pokémon fan and I think that if you yourself are a fan of the series, this really does shine through.
- I thought that the story was excellent
- Being able to play as all the trainers was great
- The writing is very well done and quite engaging
- I loved how the game gave us fusions and mega evolutions
- The game did freeze on me a few times
- Due to the freezing, you feel like you have to save every few minutes which can get annoying
