After theTaking place after ".hack//G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth," .hack//G.U. Vol. 2: Reminisce has players returning to the fictitious Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) setting called "The World" to continue Haseo's journey as he and his friends look to escape from what has become a digital trap. After the massive battle with Tri-Edge at the conclusion of "Rebirth" Haseo and friends learn they are incapable of logging out of "The World". As the life of one of their own hangs in the balance, Haseo’s party begins a race against time to purge game servers of corrupted data. Players will enjoy a fully upgraded battle system including new fighting styles and in-depth party and steam bike customization. Unique to Reminisce, a new mini card game called Crimson VS provides players with the opportunity to collect cards, compile the ultimate deck and compete against others in Crimson VS tournaments throughout "The World."

    The plot is compelling, the combat is exciting, and the aesthetics are excellent as always.
  2. An entertaining, but altogether incomplete and, at times, incomprehensible adventure.
  3. It's so firmly steeped in the style and mythology of the series that fans already know if they'll like it or not. New players ought to start with the original, or at least volume one of the current series.

    A decent dungeon-crawl at heart. Once you’ve escaped the very first couple of hours, which have some of the longest and worst talking-heads bits, the game leaves ample room to ignore the plot in favor of hacking around the random levels.
  5. 60
    But for those who were hoping for an evolution of the franchise, or those who have had no exposure to it in the first place, this is not the game for you.
  6. At the end of this game within a game, Reminisce isn't bad at all - its biggest problems are that it is just too familiar to .hack players and many of The World's areas feel a little too recycled.
  7. Terrible voice acting claims another victim. It's high time that video games cut the cord with anime dubs when it comes to localizing dialogue. So long as legions of anime fans settle for this breathless junk, the rest of us will continue to suffer.
