    If you’re only going to play one game in this franchise, .hack//QUARANTINE is the one to get. A powerful plot (including the series’ conclusion) and access to most of the gameplay from the prior three games makes it the definitive title in the series.

    When all is said and done --and despite its four-game/$200 price tag -- we found the long-time investment definitely worth it; we just hope that Bandai (and anyone else for that matter) ever decide to try it again.
  3. But if you are a fan, you’ll find that Quarantine ups the ante on battle and quest difficulty, sometimes maddeningly so, and finally ties up enough loose plot ends to satisfy.
  4. Sure, it's the same old cut 'n' paste gameplay formula, but if you've played into .hack's dual layered world thus far, it's a solid and enjoyable note upon which to end the series. [Jan 2004, p.36]
  5. I just don’t think it’s worth the time, effort and above all expense of the Dot Hack series.
  6. Bandai's decision to pad one good game's worth of content with about 60 to 80 hours' worth of filler, and to split that game into four full-priced products spread out over a year, remains disappointing.
  7. The in game music does not really make an impact on the player, with boring melodies that are simple and repetitive.

    Despite the fact that it is exactly the same as the first three, the story, which was the only thing that kept me going, wrapped up very nicely.

    Being a fan of the .hack games and anime series, one would expect walking way from the game with still little to nothing solved, that's Being a fan of the .hack games and anime series, one would expect walking way from the game with still little to nothing solved, that's how .hack is, either way game play and controls and everything is great in fact the only thing I would recommend changing is dungeon design, majorly repetitive, otherwise it is an excellent game, storyling is compelling, characters are intriguing, all great save for the dungeon designs.
