P.S. Two tips:
1.)If you watch the 45-minute DVD that comes with INFECTION, you can find hidden passwords for the game; make sure to take advantage of that.
2.)If you are a newcomer to the .hack world, then some of the storyline will not make sense. In order to remedy that, try watching .hack//SIGN. The two really go hand in hand. Enjoy!!
I have played a lot of rpg's and the only game that pulled me in this much was FF7 and .hack has one up on ff7 in that instead of feeling like you're playing someone else this game makes you feel like you ARE someone else. I kinda wish that they had a little LESS character development on Kite simply because because they tell you he's in 8th grade. That right there kinda pulls you out of the story a bit but I still find myself not wanting to shut it off because I want to know what happens next. And just like real life I find I like gameing with certain characters more than others. I even get angry at the other characters.
Simply put if you want a game you can throw yourself in and not look back this is it. I wouldn't rate it as high as FF games but it comes darn close. Give it a shot, it's the best 30 bucks I've spent in a long time.
This is all possible obviously to the idea of the plot in which you are in a computer's world the whole time. Not only can you hack into an enemy's data stream and lower his strength or hp(for example)but you can also talk to the other characters as if you were chatting on AOL with them. Even the main menu looks like a computer menu. You could tell Bandai was really going for atmosphere in this one.
To add to this game, you will also get a good 45 minutes of anime in each chapter in the form of parts from the .hack OVA. I'm telling you, ...that is a very good deal. The only thing you might want to consider is that each game in the series will only be about 20 hours long, since each game is thought of as chapters of a bigger game and not a singular game in itself. Interesting, but watch out for replay value. All in all, this is definitely a game to watch out for and could be a sleeper hit.
