If you've played .hack, can you tell me if it's any good? I'm going into town tomorrow and it's on the maybe list.

Yea I know about the voiceovers. I'm not expecting the game to be mindblowing or anything, but it is the first PS2 game that I've had any desire to play in a long time.

it's nothing mind blowing...but i think it's worth a play
just thought you should know you can't have the original japanese voiceovers (which is in my opinion better) until you complete the game

I decided to get this today. I haven't really had a proper chance to play it yet, I've just been reading through all the messages on the boards before the main game.

I like the concept though, it's quite original, a game within a game. 10-15 hours gameplay is certainly enough for me and if I do like this game, then I can look forward to the next 2 games in the series.

This is the first PS2 game I've bought since January, so I'm hoping it turns out to be good.

oh should also add that this game only lasts around 10-15 hrs
and you should get upto about lvl 30-35
and you can carry over your saves to the next episode

the creators have also been cheeky because like the matrix they have got lots of .hack stories which are all interconnected.

.hack//sign is the first tv series which is a prelude to the game and many of the characters from it will be in part 2 onwards
.hack//legend of the twilight bracelet (or something like that) follows on from the end of the game
.hack//liminality is the dvds which come with the game and focuses purely what's happening in the real world.

and i'm sure there's a comic book series as well

It's a pretty good series of games, nice idea with the MMORPG inside a RPG game however like beanz said it's a real time RPG, which makes it very repetitive although the same can be said for all real time RPG's. If you don't mind that then it's a pretty decent buy, although there are 3 more yet to come out in Europe so you'll have to be in for the long slog to get the most enjoyment out of the games

i have...and completed it...
if you can handle repetitive gameplay then yeah it's alright
it's quite an interesting concept...and in this episode there is barely any plot development. the extra disk with the anime series is a nice addition.
i've got my US copies of part 2 and 3 coming through the post soon :D
if you want to get this game for 20 quid (sealed) -i bought 2 copies accidentally *sigh* then email me on [email protected]
