    I was very interested in the faux-MMORPG concept, but incredibly bored by the repetitive gameplay. After a while, I just couldn't force myself to walk through the same series of rooms over and over anymore. This game is worth renting, but not buying.

    The game is a bit fun at first but soon becomes tedious. The graphics and gameplay both get overly repetitive. There's also no 'hook' to the plot, more of a poke.

    An average rpg game that should only be played by hack infection anime fanatic. The overall gameplay is dull. Multi-sequel rpg games should rather play xenosaga, a 4 part innovative rpg series that strongly rivals the greatness of Final Fantasy X.

    This game is great. Its innovative gameplay and addictive storyline is what keeps you playing. If stop to smell the roses (side quests) you can get a pretty good RPG experience. Extreme gamers like me willl get a break from the final fantasies and the usual RPG battle play, although I've seen a battle engibe like this in kingdom hearts I was thoroughly impressed with it.

    .hack offers up a unique rpg experience that sorta lacks in the environment department. This game is repetitive dungeon crawling and basic boring environments. But, otherwise this game is a great bonus to your rpg collection.

    This is a great game! It's very addicting and I would play it more if my PS2 would stop breaking... I can't wait to finish so I can start the next one!

    This game will have you hooked. The graphics are kind of bland during gameplay, but there are plenty of nice things in the game. Character design is great, and the ability to customize your desktop. I think it's a unique idea and definately worth playing.

    One of the best games I played. but I don't like how you don't get to choose a class. I love this game and will continue to play all the .hack games.

    If you could pick your class this would be the greatest RPG ever. Oh wait, it already is.

  1. I had to muddle through almost half of this 20-hour RPG before .hack really grabbed me... And now, I'm hooked. [Feb 2003, p.100]
  2. The most fun I have had playing an RPG in a long time! This game just spews forth with innovation.

    Despite some dated-looking visuals (it REALLY does look like PSO), Dot-hack is an impressive bit of high-concept work, and scores lots of points for its presentational excellence.
