Good idea, bad execution

  • Summary: The concepts and ideas for this game are excellent, and I bought it as soon as I could. However, while this game was pretty enjoyable, it has its downsides. First and foremost, there is very little plot. Bandai tried to give this game a more epic feel by splitting it up into 4 games, but it ends up just being very slow and very little happens by the end of the game. Furthermore, the "sequels" are the same as the first game, just with continuation of plot.

Addictive but short.

  • Summary: If you're a huge fan of either MMORPGs, running around collecting rare items, or levelling your characters to godhood, this game is for you. I find the battle system/skills system to be quite enjoyable. It lends itself very well to mindless levelling and good old-fashioned carnage. The dungeon set-ups are pretty sweet, and I like the variety to the environments.

Good, Not Great.

  • Summary: I was definitely expecting a lot more when I read the reviews about this game. It definitely has good points, but it has almost as many bad features. It has an interesting, thorough story and I like that fact that they designed a simulated MMORPG, but it isn't very realistic. I didn't feel like I was playing a realist online game. The NPCs had almost nothing interesting to say and rarely had anything good to trade.

mixed feelings.....

  • Summary: This is a pretty good game that could have been an incredible one. The concept is interesting, but the game simply is not deep enough. I was really let down when I finished it in about 16 hours, and I wasn't making any effort to hurry through the game. The main storyline is very short and could have been developed into something more involving.

It's OK, but...

  • Summary: I know I'll get lambasted for writing this, but let's put it out there. This is NOT a great game. While a great story is certainly an important component to a great game, there are other essentials which must be present as well. So, let's talk about the good first. .hack has a good story which should keep the gamer quite interested. You play as a another video game player who wishes to play the MMORPG "The World".

Not bad, for the money...

  • Summary: I didn't know much about this game, except the rpg element, and at ten pounds I thought i'd try it. It's an original concept, an online rpg without the online part. That's about the only originality though. There are no random battles as such, you know when you will have to fight by either seeing the monster first, or a gate, which disappears to reveal a monster.

Alright, at first at least

  • Summary: The first installment was good because it was new, soething different, and it was good to have the feeling of playing online without all the costs of playing online rpgs. However, the game is very repetitive, something which folows in the sequel, and it is split into four installments when it could easily have been done in one go.

  • Summary: I was reccomended to buy t his by a friend and he had told me the story which sounded very interesting. So i bought it and was slightly dissapointed. Firstly it is slightly bland, the towns are slightly samll and there are only two. The dungeons are not very different in fact once you hav seen one of them you have seen them all.

Hit X to advance

  • Summary: .hack is more of a media event than a video game, and unfortunately the video game is the weakest part. The designers would have done well to design levels after trying something like everquest or perhaps a MUD. The dungeon areas, with the exception of at least 3 very small areas, are essentially identical set piece rooms assembled in random ways. The characters do talk as if they are strangers in an on-line rpg (By this I mean dimwits.
