A 14-year-old boy named Kite is invited by his schoolmate Orca to play the online game The World. While playing the game, both Kite and his friend are attacked by an unknown monster. As a result, Orca becomes comatose in the real world. Despite his friend's condition, Kite continues to play, believing he’ll find a way to revive Orca. While playing The World, Kite accepts the Twilight from Aura, a mysterious girl in white. Kite is transformed into an Outlaw player within the game, wielding the very same power responsible for Orca’s condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars As addictive as a real MMORPG. . . July 15 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
. . .Without the added expense of an internet connection.

.hack//INFECTION starts out innocently enough, but as the player progresses through the game, they will come to realise that there is much, much more to THE WORLD than is on the surface.

At the same time, the game seems to be becoming infected with an unstoppable virus, that the administration of the system (C.C.CORP.) are trying to cover up by putting high level protection in place.

With Kite's bracelet, given to him by none other than Aura (first appearing in .hack//SIGN), the player can Data Drain monsters to gain really spiffy items that can't be found otherwise. As well, there is a GIGANTIC array of items for the Twin Blade class, and it's extremely fun to try and get them all through upgrading (throwing them into a Spring of Myst). At least, I think so.

Although .hack//SIGN is indeed a prequel to these games, it is not necessary to have watched it, although a lot more will make sense if one does. According to the creators, the .hack//GAMES are the center of the story.

And even better: The player can spend hours levelling up and gathering weapons and, when they buy the sequel (.hack//MUTATION), they can convert their data, keeping everything they've ever gotten!

Overall, this game series is a work of genius, with twists and turns that make the player wonder just what in THE WORLD is going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars BEST RPG EVER IN HISTORY!!!!!!! July 8 2004
By A Customer
first of all the game is about a kid who joins a online game called the world. his one friend "orca" was data drained by a virus named skeith. he then meets the little girl in white gives him a book.his friend ended up in a coma. "kite" (the main character) travels with a female character "blackrose" who is a newbie or begginer just like him. she takes them to a viraly infected area called "hidden,forbidden,holy ground" where they find a monster who can not die. later they continue meeting virus monsters and screwed up areas. i gave this game a best game because i am a huge fan. if you like rpg and movement fighting you will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars .hack infection:advanced review July 6 2004
By A Customer
Dot hack infection is about a kid named Kite whose invited by a classmate (we'll call him by his online name, Orca.) to play the online game the world. But, after a breif tutorial the two are attacked by a powerful, unknown monster named Skeith. Afterwards, the mysterious Aura gives Kite the book of twilight, from which Kite drew the twilight bracelet. Orca fell comotose in the real world. The bracelet Kite recieved has 2 essential skills: gate hacking, to get you there. And Data drain to weaken Skeith. It is an online-game simulation via RPG.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy....HOLY GAME! June 22 2004
For this game, I have to cuss out loud (in every positive sense). This game has BLOWN my mind! Such an amazing lead, an astonishing game-within-a-game hook, great gameplay, actually GOOD music, and loads of character development. I can't say it's a good replay, because obviously some of us want to get on with the series, right? But if you're going to play an RPG, play a freakin' RPG and buy the entire series, today. Now. Whenever you can. Seriously! This is THE ONE game you don't want to overlook!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars .hack kicks butt...... June 17 2004
don't get confused, this isn't a final fantasy game, but it sure as heck is as fun as one! There is a 45 min. anime dvd that you should watch to get a small grasp of what is happening. If you've seen the tv show .hack// SIGN, then you will understand it a lil more. Anyway, you are Kite, a newbie that was asked to come to "The World" by your friend Orca. "The World" is like a world inside a world where you can level up in dungeons, trade with non-playable characters, buy goods, raise grunties, etc. Your on a 'mission' to find out what is happening to "The World" after your friend goes into a coma. After coming in contact with Skeith, the player that Data Drains Orca; you recieve the same power from Aura, the white floating girl, that puts Orca into a coma. You need to figure out who's with you and who's against you in the ever fighting struggle to free "The World"!! Have fun, cause I know I did!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Great Game for the price June 4 2004
I bought this game because it was on sale for $19.99 so I figured no matter what, it was a good deal and the reviews looked ok. Didn't think I would really get too into it...
Was I wrong. This game, after you get over the intial confusion, just absorbs you. I would forewarn people not to start this game unless they are willing to commit some serious time to it...
For some reason, I started this game right before my final papers were due this semester (I'm getting a Masters, kinda pathetic to still be addicted to video games, but what can ya do?) Anyway, totally threw me off since I devoted almost all of my free time to the game.
Bottom line: It's a great game. Characters are beleivable, setting is eerily similar to real RPGs, weapons, skills, and magic are diverse and easy to use, and there are an astonishing number of battlegrounds to chose from.
