YPR had a lot of really cool ideas. It's a shame that the whole thing was a pile of absolute garbage.
I'd almost give it 2 stars because of the Gold Torizo fight, but I just can't bring myself to do so.

It had nice ideas which bring up the rating to 2 orbs, but on a whole, it just sucked.
If I wanted to die, I wouldn't let this hack do it for me.

Okay, so this hack has some pretty interesting things, but it feels like one of the worst experiences I had while playing a hack. Why? I don't think I can explain it very well. The hack has some neat ideas, and the best Gold Torizo fight ever, but the sad fact is that these are covered by a bunch of terrible and bland stuff that they don't stand a chance at redeeming the hack.

I would seriously suggest skipping this hack. I can't recommend this to anyone.

Well... at least it's better than the Cristener Homenag hacks. That's about it. Nothing much to say about this hack.

I have no clue why this hack has such bad reviews... to be honest: IT WAS AWESOME!

I really liked how he re-did original rooms with his own personal style. The items were very well hidden and some required to think out of the box which made it even MORE interesting! Enemies are totally fine, no super one-shot dmg or crazy stuff like that. Boss fights were interesting, too. (Finding easter-eggs was a very nice touch)

I guess other people just weren't skilled enough or up for it to finish it at all which makes me sad :(

If I really have to complain about something, then it's these TWO things:
1st: That Botwoon fight is garbage times 10
2nd: The fight against Ridley is hard as fuck without using and emulator related things like slow down etc. (Personally, I think even with 3/4 or 2/3 of his dmg, he would be very hard to beat for most players already! Either NERF his HP or is DMG output just a tiny bit to be a bit more reasonable!)

I had to go back and look for MORE SUPERS, E-Tanks and Reserve to be able to withstand his dmg output... just to give you an example: I had 200 Missiles, 9 E-tanks, 1 Reserve, 30 Supers and 40 bombs and couldn't beat him! After going back I got 200 Missiles, 13 E-Tanks, 3 Reserve, 40 Supers and 40 bombs and still... very hard fight, but I beat him in the end after like... 10 tries: (I savestated before entering his lair just to save time going all the way back to it)

But... the feeling after beating him .. that RELIEF... just pure adrenalin!

In conclusion: 4/5 would play again!
