  1. This series is quite possibly the biggest surprise of the PS2’s final years.
  2. Redemption may not be the best of the best, but it has the markings of one of the strongest story driven RPGs out there. If you have been a fan from the beginning or one that was sucked in recently, Redemption will deliver on many of your expectations.
  3. This is the final chapter in the .hack//G.U. series. If you're a BIG fan, you won't be disappointed. But if you are new to the series, vol. 3 will leave you stranded in what you're supposed to do in the game.
  4. Really radsauce gameplay. [Nov 2007, p.88]
  5. Disappointing and uneventful, .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption wasn’t the last chapter I had envisioned for the series.
  6. It may take a bit of imagination and willingness to suspend belief on your part but the premise is fresh and that's worth a lot these days.

    If you're a longtime fan, Redemption simply gives you more of what you want with no radical changes -- so in that regard, aficionados will likely be satisfied. Generally speaking, .hack has a neat idea, but the games just can't quite balance the concept with an action-RPG play style.

    The graphics are solid, the music is wonderful, and the battle system is much improved. Unfortunately it has too much recycling of dungeons and events, not enough online gameplay, and comes off more as an interactive anime series than a video game series.
  9. The tedium of the G.U. trilogy comes to a welcome end.
  10. If you've already played, and enjoyed the .hack series, particularly G.U. (which is the better and more polished of the two), than you'll most likely enjoy this. Everything from a plot standpoint is wrapped up nicely, there's no real loose thread to mention, and you shouldn't be disappointed.

So basically, the story is about a gamer in the future world, where peoples play game with simulation device (pretty much), in a Realistic "World".. the character at first is bored with the game know as the "World", but soon find friends and play it together. the main event came when a virus (Aida) spread through on the main server, and crashing the systems.. then it turned out to makes the main character Lost his Precious friend, unconscious from the effect of the game crash..
    If you played the game from the first series trilogy, then it would be a great time of fun to play the whole game.. i don't recommend that you buy the game without the first and second series. i Put a 9 because it have good gameplay, and storyline, but if only they have Solid multiplayer mode, as an MMORPG i believe they could score way above... they had he potential, but just didn't use it well.
