I must say this game is definitely in a league of its own. Just for starters...the storyline of this game is unique. The gameplay is very nice because this game simulates the playing field of an online game only its not literally online playable. Beating this game may not take you a long time,but the thing is there is alot to explore and alot of things to discover which makes this title pretty long. The characters are cool and the voice acting is very well done. Plus other bonuses to this game is the fact that it comes with an anime dvd inside plus .Hack Infection is but one of a four part series. The anime inside is very good too for those anime fans looking for something different. I highly recommend this game for anyone who likes an rpg of a different calibur and remember...this game is a FOUR part series so even though each game by itself may seem short...think about the game time yu'll have to put in to defating all four parts. So if you haven't got this title yet you better get started now cause .Hack Part 3 Outbreak is out now and .Hack Part 4 Quarantine is coming soon so you better hurry up!

Now, before you start to say anything about the game based on what you heard from others, it is crucial to realize that this is part 1 out of 4. Each part is about 15-20 hrs. long, which comes out to a very extensive adventure. Now what may seem frustrating to some is the thought that they will have to go through the task of building up their characters in the first part, only to have to start from stratch at the second part! I had this problem in mind as well when I played until I learned that the save files carry over! This makes the gameplay somewhat more rewarding. The realness of this pseudo-MMORPG is incredible. Yuo can send and recieve e-mails from your party members, they may or may not be there in "The World"(the name of the MMORPG) when you want them to be, and they interact like actual people! The ability to give comands and battle tactics to your teammates rather that controlling them continues to add to the amazing realism and fun-factor of INFECTION. Well, I could go on, but I think it would be best if you experienced it for yourself.
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!!

Let me start off by saying that unless you're into Rpgs, anime, and at least a little into .hack this game is not for you. For me I first say the cartoon then found the games. With that being said, onto the reveiw.
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.

Well, admittedly, this is only a preview. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm glad someone is stepping up to the plate and trying to be innovative in the world of rpgs. Final Fantasy X didn't have a shred of innovation in it(except maybe sphere grid), and turned out to be easily the worst FF ever. From what I understand, .hack's battle system is something similar to a Star Ocean or Parasite Eve. You move you're characters around the screen and press a button to attack, choose what magic to do, etc. One of the coolest things about this game, however, is the fact that once you beat an area, you can then go to a certain computer and load and battle field you want. In other words, if you are in a castle overlooking a forest, but you want to fight in a desert or snowfield, walk into this weird device, pick it, and you will have a desert or snowfield to play with automatically.
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.
