Product Description

It was the year 2015 and for millions of gamers it was the year ‘The World’ came to an end. Caught within a mysterious fire, all the datacenters containing the world’s most popular game was destroyed, taking with it all the information about the game. Taking elements from what was to be a different game, ‘the World’ is reborn as ‘The World R:2.’ However as millions of players, both new and old flood the servers, they soon discover that this new version isn’t as forgiving as its previous incarnation. Being one of these new players, Haseo finds himself not only the target of countless Player Killers, but of two rivaling guilds, who hope to use him in pursuit of their own agendas.

A World Gone Wrong July 27 2007
By T. Bailey - Published on
Format: DVD
As some others have stated, I was a huge fan of the .Hack//sign series. When I saw roots, I was very excited to see the next generation of characters. However, I quickly got over that excitement.

As others have said, the pacing is off. Nothing much seems to go on for large chunks of time. On top of that, one of the things that really turned me off were the characters in general. It's like every griefer from every MMO you've ever played all banded together in one place. I can't stand those people in my games, and they're not any more entertaining when I watch them animated on my television. The heroes aren't really much better, and it's hard for me to get on their side, or become emotionally invested in their quest.

Whatever happened to wreck The World, it wrecked the francise too. This is for die hard fans only.

Pacing..... a little........... slow. June 5 2007
By Otaku James - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Well, actually the pacing is pretty much like .Hack//Sign and the story feels much more like that series than the disappointing .Hack//Legend of the Twilight, so if the first series was good for you then this season looks like it probably will be. For those new to the .Hack series this set will probably be infuriating and impenetrable.

But I like it.

Slow start but I see potential June 3 2007

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The episodes on this DVD are slow to get to a point. The creators seem to be trying (too hard and needlessly) to emphasize that there's more than what you see going on. If you've watched .hack//SIGN then I think this will be somewhat more interesting to you because it feels like a continuation.

//roots Aug. 22 2007
By Ethan - Published on
Format: DVD
I am originally a .hack//SIGN fan, and I'm reluctantly sticking with project .hack to see where the story goes. With the original The World destroyed and "R2" created, it's become much more shallow and technological. There is less intrigue, magic, wonder. It's a story where the gods are dead and mysteries are gone. Trying to keep the typically mysterious theme going, they impliment it in one character: Ovan. No one knows what his deal is or what his motives are, but it doesn't really tell you anything to keep you watching. The pacing is far slower than //SIGN, and it takes much more patience to get through it. The animation seems to remain constant, which is a plus from //SIGN, but the storyline is very slow, reserved only for the diehard .hack fans.
Very Underrated Dec 26 2013
By Christopher - Published on
Format: DVD
Honestly Im going to be speaking of .hack/roots as a whole. A lot of people may say the pacing is slow and what not however in .hack/sign (the most overrated of the series) it was a whole mess from one episode to next complete randomness and too many emo moments , its alright to have those dark emotional reflecting scenes but sign just spammed that and took it to a new level way to much! For Legend of the twilight princess they took a more lighter child like approach and the incest made it a little akward still a good series though

Roots to me is a good mesh of both however I might be a little bias due to the fact I've played GU and loved it (also a very underrated game compare to the quadrilogy) Go into it with an open mind and enjoy.
