5.0 out of 5 stars Fans of Infection will love the continued gameplay
This sequel to .hack Infection picks up where the first game left off - and even lets you import your character to continue the adventure! For new players, the game nicely provides you with all the mail messages, board posts and other content from the first game, so you can at least try to catch up a bit with the story. It provides you with a character up to the challenge...

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a huge fan of .hack but..
The amazing storyline continues, but with a few grave disappointments.
-Incredibly short. There is only one new server (city)
- the dungeons, and fields also haven't changed
- the gameplay is also idenical
The storyline is still very intriguing, especially the DVD..
crossovers from the tv show also exist..but due to the fact that it is only on...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fans of Infection will love the continued gameplay, July 6 2003
This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
This sequel to .hack Infection picks up where the first game left off - and even lets you import your character to continue the adventure! For new players, the game nicely provides you with all the mail messages, board posts and other content from the first game, so you can at least try to catch up a bit with the story. It provides you with a character up to the challenge of this next level.
In graphics, gameplay, user experience and interface, .mutation is exactly the same as .infection was. This game is a 'storyline expansion' to the first game, using the same engine.
People unhappy with the first game probably won't buy the second game, so the audience for game 2 is pretty much self selecting. People who loved the first game and didn't want the experience to end will be thrilled. Instead of most games where you put hours of time and energy into a character, only to have the game stop, you can keep playing for weeks more. And of course, when you're through with this one, there'll be another one out in the fall!

This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
.hack//Mutation is the sequal to .hack//infection. This game is so much fun you still have all of your member addresses whicth you had in the previsous game. And you start at Level 30 so you can go to stronger dungen levels and more infected areas. If you liked the first one you will like the seocond one more.

5.0 out of 5 stars .hack//mutation, March 18 2004

This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
While .hack// is quite a phenomenon, a review of the enjoyment of this game has nothing to do with the anime series (although fans of the series can find little easter eggs in the game series).
The strengths of .hack//mutation are the same as the first in the series (.hack//infection): it has a great plot line, interesting new skill system, easy to use interface, and you can continue on your character into the next of the series. This is as expected, there were no changes to the game design. Despite this, I found this game to be more exciting and fun to play than the first in the series. The plot in mutation thickens and becomes more interesting and fulfilling.
Like the previous game, if I were to say this game has a weakness, it would be that it is quite a bit shorter than many comparable games. With completion of the story line (in this installment), the extras, and just having a little fun, I completed the game in about 40 hours.
Overall, the .hack//mutation is a must have if you wish to play the series. I don't think that the series would have been as much fun if I did not play all of the installments. Having finished the first three game, .hack//mutation is my favorite of the series so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow., Jan. 29 2004
By 
This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
While I was loving .hack(vol. 1)//infection,
.hack//mutation blew me out of the water.
A shipload of new chracters, grunties, levels, skills, epuipment, items, magic, and more arrive in full speed in .hack//mutation.
Towering above the ranks of .hack//infection, this is reason why .hack is so popular. First off, now that you've played threw vol. 1 , you get to carry over your chracter data to vol. 2. All your items, skills, money, equipment, everything is there.
The second reason is that this one has more boss fights, which are quite marvously designed. The'rye fun, strong, fast, and are the best Ive ever been in. The graphics have also recived a slight polish from vol. 1, which seem to fit the chracteristics of an actual MMORPG (massively multiplayer online rpg.)
And with the apperance of the .hack//sign chracters, youll be excited each time you go look for them.
So its the same as before. CLick that button and buy this game, but only if youve beat vol. 1. So go to it, and be excited, cause your about to buy one of the best games on the market today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent RPG, Dec 31 2003

This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
I've loved this game ever since the first installment (Infection) and I've been collecting the TV Show and Comic as well. This game has a long re-playability, indepth story, a wonderful amount of options and so forth. I can hardly wait for this one to come out.
For those who complain about the fact that the game doesn't change much between the four volumn are probably the same that complained that "Fellowship of the Rings" was a clifthanger--it's a standard 4-part series! A *story* in the normal tradition like 2001, Tolkien and the rest. That alone means that they got the whole idea of an RPG right! A true RPG is one that is a story that gives you a chance to play along. I recommend this game to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best virtual online game and one of the greatest rpg's, Oct. 31 2003

Ok. So you are planning to buy . hack mutation. well... dont plan buy it now. The storyline is pretty much the same as the 1st one (trying to save Orca of the Azure Sea). If you havent bought .hack// infection and dont know about .hack, you should really start off with this game. This game can get rough in the beggining, but further along the road you will understand it better and it will become vcery challenging.
Overview:
Leo and his cyber buddies are out to try to bust you again and are also trying to delete your character!!!!!!! Luckily Helba comes to the rescue and completely outsmarts Leo and convinces him to leave him alone.
You will meet new characters like: Nuke Usagimaru (long arm), Sanjuro (heavy blade), Wiseman (wavemaster) And Natsume (twin blade). Afetr meeting up with some of these characters you will fight a MAJOR boss cubia.(as seen at the end of infection). This the hardest boss so dont think your going to beat him in just one fight, (I suggest you level up to 39 or 45).
The really, really, really cool part starts when you arive at net slum. I wont tell you what happens because it will ruin the surprise for most of you buyers out there :). All I can tell you is that Net Slum is where Deleted, Unused or just characters that are messed up live in. Very freaky place but lots of battles will happen here so be prepared.
Also be PREPARTED TO BUY MUTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a huge fan of .hack but.., Oct. 30 2003
This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
The amazing storyline continues, but with a few grave disappointments.
-Incredibly short. There is only one new server (city)
- the dungeons, and fields also haven't changed
- the gameplay is also idenical
The storyline is still very intriguing, especially the DVD..
crossovers from the tv show also exist..but due to the fact that it is only on once a week, and at midnight I didn't understand any of it.
I gave it three stars because despite the above I really enjoyed it.
Definately a rent before you buy..but then you might be able to complete it.

4.0 out of 5 stars great game, too much static, Aug. 28 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
This is a great game even though it could have been slightly better. For starters the fields look as if they were rushed, The sound crackles when engaged in heavy combat. Now for the pros. The enemys can be like 20x bigger than you and you can be fighting up to 8 enemies at once and defeat them all at once, so it gives you a sense of collosal power. Some of the combat gets so heavy with tornado attacks that it is almost impossible to see what you are attacking. The dark tones and dim lighting in the game gives you a sense of mystery and danger. No matter how strong you get enemies from this versions feilds and dungeons can't be beaten with just on hit. For those you have played the first one the magic goes up to level 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars .hack Mutation! A cool game!, Aug. 17 2003
By 
Kathy N. Kelley (Asheville, NC USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: .hack: Mutation (part 2) - PlayStation 2 (Video Game)
.Hack Mutation is the sequel to another great game, .hack Infection. The story expands, you meet more party members, get to go to higher levels, and get another server (Lambda). Almost all the party members are optional, but really only 1 or 2 are required. You also get to go to about level 50. You really can't go far over that. Two new gruntys are here also! Blackrose gets a good weapon by meet Mimiru (from .hack//SIGN). You go to Net Slum and fight Innis and Magus.
