Summary: I bought this game back in 2003 when it first came out and fell in love with it. I remember reading an interview with the creator, he said the whole point of the game was to reinvent the console RPG, and he definitely did. The graphics were great. You can build relationships with over a dozen characters, as well as NPCs. There is an almost unlimited supply of areas to explore, items to find, and Grunties to raise.

Summary: No need to add to what has already been said. This is a fun game, and if you're a .hack// fan, you'll love it. Buy used, play it through. If you don't feel like keeping it, sell it to someone else. You'll end up only two or three dollars in the hole in exchange for playing a great game as long as you like. That's better then renting it.
Summary: This is the best game i have ever played!!! it is soooooooo much fun. It may be a little repetative, but you get over that quickly becuase the gameplay and storyline are AWSOME! you start off as a new player in the game "The World" (A massivly multiplayer online RPG)The first character you meet is Orca. Orca is very annoying but he gets into a come within the first few minutes so you don't have to worry about him for long.
Summary: It's only a game...a game about playing a massively multiplayer online role-playing game... Plot You play as a player who is just introducing himself to a MMPORPG called "The World." Your friend, a veteran player and your mentor of the game, mysteriously falls into a coma after his game character is killed...and the reason behind his incapacitation lies within the game, which is mysteriously ridden with viruses.
Summary: I love this game. People complain that dungeons repeat and the graphics aren't perfect, but THAT ISN'T WHAT THE GAME IS ABOUT!! It's about the excellent and gripping story, which always compels you to keep playing. I've beat this game and am almost done with part 2, which is also great. Buy this game before you play any of the other games in the series. It's not as short as people would have you think, with the side-quests it's about 30 hours.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that unless you're into Rpgs, anime, and at least a little into .hack this game is not for you. For me I first say the cartoon then found the games. With that being said, onto the reveiw. I have played a lot of rpg's and the only game that pulled me in this much was FF7 and .hack has one up on ff7 in that instead of feeling like you're playing someone else this game makes you feel like you ARE someone else.
Summary: This game at first, threw me for a loop. Since I had never played an on-line game, and the way this game approaches the on-line games is really great. You level up, and use magic and have dungeon crawls, just like any other RPG, but when you beat the game, your data is saved in a special file for download for the new installment. The game play is pretty easy to figure out, you just need to watch the areas to where you warp. You can be killed INSTANTLY!
Summary: All in all, this is a spectacular game. It fills the empty space left in my heart by the horrible attempt at a sequel Konami tried to pass off as Devil May Cry 2. I rented .hack from the video store on a Thursday, and reluctantly brought it back on Monday, after committing 40 hours of playtime to this peice of art. Don't be tricked, this game *can* be short.
Summary: I am a fan of anime but that is not why i bought this game. I like rpgs and this looked like an interesting one. You are someone in real life that has this game they are registering on in the beginning. (reminds me of something :) ) Anyway, this is a good game and i wanted to give it a 4.5 because the controls take some getting use to and the camera gets a little wackey sometimes. Battles arent the BEST but no battles are ever perfect so i would recommend this game.
Summary: I am a big fan of RPGs and animes. I am a HUGE fan of Final fantasy rpgs too. While waiting for FF 11 to come out, I saw this game in a magizine. It looked pretty good, and Bandai is a familiar name. When I bought this game, it was confusing at first, but I got the hang of it fast. The concept is really interesting, playing a game of a person, who is also playing a game. It is really different from most rpgs that I hav played, which is turn based battles.
