    .hack//G.U. Last Recode had a lot of love poured into its development and planning because it looks amazing.

    .hack//G.U. Last Recode is a great attempt to modernize an older franchise. All the improvements made by CyberConnect 2 were not only needed but welcomed. Sure it still suffers from designs of its time but that shouldn’t deter you from a good overall experience.

    Last Recode is a very well done compilation, which includes three games that never saw an official release in Europe and a brand new fourth one. That's a lot of quality content for just fifty bucks.

    .Hack//G.U. Last Recode is a JRPG history exhibit, and it’s well worth the price of admission.

    A very enjoyable JRPG experience inspired by the MMORPGs. Lot of content and upgrades not found in the PS2 originals.

    .hack//G.U. Last Recode shines in its engaging story, eclectic cast of characters, and unique ability to handle the concept of a game within a game. In the end, I would recommend it to JRPG fans who are looking for a unique universe to explore as long as they're prepared for generic dungeon crawling and a less than stellar combat system.

    .hack is back with the remaster of the G.U. series, adding a brand new chapter. Unfortunatley, the old feeling of the mechanics is now obsolete and not so fun anymore. The big value of the plot remains, but is difficult to suggest if you are not a fan of the JRPG style.

Hace cosa de un año o dos, pude jugar a su versión original de Ps2 y he de decir, que los apartados técnicos los han mejorado notablemente. Y ya ni mencionar que encima CC2 nos brinda con un episodio extra de esta magnífica saga.

    En resumen, si te gustaron los 3 volúmenes de Ps2, ya estás tardando en comprar este remaster.

    Y para aquellos que no hayan jugado aún a esta saga, daré razones para hacerlo:

    PROS

    -Una historia y ambientación impecables
    -Unos personajes muy humanizados, repletos de carisma y con los que rápidamente lograremos empatizar.
    -La sensación "ficticia" de estar viviendo en un MMO, intercambiando armas e items con NPCs y demás, consultando foros, intercambiando emails con nuestros compañeros fuera de "The World" se hace una experiencia agradable y como pocas.
    -Su banda sonora, espectacular.
    -Las voces originales en japonés son sublimes.

    CONTRAS

    -Aunque ha sido mejorado, su sistema de combate sigue siendo muy limitado y algo soso
    -La escasa variedad y pobre diseño de mazmorras, a la larga, se hace repetitivo y puede llegar a cansar.

El juego está cargado de detalles, prácticamente uno recuerda la época dorada de Playstation 2 con este título.

Personally i had mixed reviews going in but as I played more I got the gist of it all. Playing from the point of view of a person playing an mmorpg is interesting; also the idea of checking emails and forums was a nice touch. Difficulty was the issue at first but now I see in some cases it can be upped from the chaos gate. Overall I think it's a great game with a great story could be better if the scenes where lips moved while each person talk and their expressions weren't on and off. Expand

    The best way to play the ps2 classic in this days, to make it perfect they add the 4th chapter.
    The same addictive gameplay, the hacker mode to play if you only want to ply for the story and jump to the 4th chapter in ease. Not forgetting the work in the HD is beyond good, i can´t play again my ps2.
    This is the real .hack GU collection.
    Really I was missing this franchise but play it again in this graphics and generations make me happy.
