Justin Urban  "I Am An Major Rpg Fan And A Even Bigger Anime Fan, I Have Been Waiting So Long For This Game, Ever Since It Came Out In Japan And When I Finally Got It, Wow! It Was Everything I Heard About It. Anyone One Who Thinks This Game Is Bad Needs To Get Mental Help, It Is The Best Game Ever, Also I Say This Cause I Am Negociating With The Makers To Let Me Make A Real Version Of "the World" If They Do Not Plan On. Overall I Must Say This And This Alone, God This Game Is So Cool!!!! 10 Out Of 10 On My Score, It Is Light Years Ahead Of Any Other Rping Game I Have Played."

Rick Goodin  "All I Can Say Is Wow! I Am A Advid Rpg And Mmorpg Player And I Must Say This Game Has Defentally Emulated The Look And Feal Of A Mmorpg. After Playing It For 4 Days I Am Completly Hooked On It. The Graphics Are Wonderfull, The Playability Is Awesome And The Story Line Is Truly Captavating. I Also Love The Wonderfull Job They Did On The Voice Overs. Good Job Guys, Its Nice To See That Epic Class Games Can Still Be Created."

Alex Tefertiller  "This Game Is Awsome. It Is Everything I Have Come To Expect From A Decent Rpg. The Story Is Incredible, And The Graphics Are Outstanding. The Four Game Set Up Is Smart On The Part Of The Gaming Company, Because It Keeps Rpgers Like Me Coming Back For More. It's Just A Great Game."

Ian Bristol  "It Was A Decent Game. But I Could Use Some Improvements. I Agree With That One Guy On All Rpg's Being Cloned Recently. I Wish The Storyline And The Fighting Gets Better On The Next Games. And I Also Wish That It Was A Real Mmorpg. And If Not Then Youre Friend Would Atleast Buy Some Good Equipment For Themselves. Other Than Those Miner Detailes It Is A Great Game."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Rich Brady  "Dot Hack, To Me, Seems Like Kingdom Hearts Meets Phantasy Star Online. The Overall Felling That Comes With The Game Was Awesome. It Is About This Girl Who Plays The Game And Her Boyfriend Goes Into A Coma, So She Teams Up With A Guy Who Has Been Stalking Her To Try And Figure Out Why Kids Are Going Into Comas Over The Game. This Ends In A "to Be Continued". It Had A Clear And Satisfying Ending, Yet At The Same Time Kept Me Wanting More. Now Onto The Game Itself. .hack//infection Is Extremely Similar To The Events That Unfold In The Ova, Mainly Because They Take Place At The Same Time. Instead Of Seeing It From The Point Of View Of Someone Outside The Game, This Time You See It From A Kid Playing The Game. Throughout The Game You See References To The Ova. Im Not Done With The Game But Im Pretty Sure Im At The End Of It, Well... The End Of Part One. I Like The Characters (with The Exception Of An Ever So Annoying Character Named Piros). My Favorite Was A Girl Named Blackrose, So I Named The Main Character Whiterose, Just To Go Along With Her. The Story Is Great, The Sound Is Great, The Graphics Could've Been Better. I Guess It's All In The Eye Of The Beholder."

Jeff Harris  "This Game Has To Be One Of The Best Games That I Have Played In A While. I Love The Fact That It Is A Mmorpg But Is Not. The Marketing For This Game Is Most Impressive. A Game With A Tv Show With Movies And The Ova's That Come With The Game. The Graphics For This Game Are Awsome. The Camera Control Is A Little Queer At First But Ends Up Not Being That Bad In The End. This Game Is Great And Needs To Be In The Household Of Every Ps2 Owner."

Jordan Hennenfent  "I Rented This Game Before I Bought It And Thought It Was Good. It Is Now Three Days Later And I Have Advanced The Main Story To The End Of Part One. I Know There Are Supposed To Be Three To Follow But Why Is The Game Barely 20 Hours? It Reminds Me Of Baldurs Gate You Play Long Enough To Get Into It Then Wham! Your Done. They Could Have Made It Two Games With Less Areas To Waste Time In Then Four That At This Rate Won't Be 100 Hours. I Am Very Dissappointed In This Game I Liked The Graphics And All That Stuff, Game Flow Sound, Etc, But Would Not Recommend Buying This Game At All. Rent It For A Week And You'll Be Caught Up To The End Of The First Part With The Exception Of The Not Too Hard Side Quests."

I Have Played It For 2 Days Straight And I Am Still Loving All The New Stuff I Am Finding. Being An Avid Rpger, This Game Is A Breath Of Fresh Air From What Seems To Becoming The Same Rpg's Being Cloned From Another. I Can Describe This Game Because It Puts Me At A Loss For Words But Already It Has Become My Favorite Game Out Of My Extensive Collection. This Game Is A Must Have For Any Rpg Fan..."

It Has Some Of The Good Quality's That Were Recently Exhibited In Final Fantasy Ten Graphic Wise, But It Has The Fighting Generater Of A Hardcore Fighting Game. The Textures Are Mesmerizing, The Background Music Is Dazzling, And The Gameplay Is Sherely Magnificent! I Recommend This Game To Every Plastation Two Owner."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Timothy Patrick  "Summary: Dot Hack Is A Rather Exciting, Unique And An Extremely Entertaining Game. The Graphics Are Quite Smooth, And The English Voice Acting Worked For Once! Everything About This Game Just Amazed Me Ecspecially Their Close Attention To Deteil.

The Game Dot Hack Takes Place In The Year 2010 Within The New Mmorpg, "the World," You As The Player Control Kite, A Newbie In, "the World." The Game Starts As Kite Is First Logging Into, "the World," As He Is Going To Meet His Friend Orca, A Veteran Of, "the World," For A Quick Run Through Of The Game. Nearing The End Of Orca's Dungeon Tutorial The Two Are Attacked By An Unkown Monster. Orca Tries His Best To Defeat It, But The Monster Preveiled And Defeated Him, Sending His Character Avatar Off The Game World. Kite Tries To Call His Friend, But He Soon Finds That He Is In A Coma. Kite Then Embarkes On His Quest To Find What It Was That Put His Friend, Orca, In A Coma.

Graphics: First, I Would Like To Make A Comment About The Graphics. The Graphics Were Extremely Well Done With A Smooth Feeling Of Anime. Everything Was Perfect About These Character Designs, Everything From Emotions, Deteil And Even The Way They Move. (and You Thought Ffx Looked Good). The Greatest Thing That I Noticed About The Character Design Was The Fact That When They Talk In English, The Character's Lips Move With The English Words! But When You Through It Into Japanease, The Lips Move With The Japanease Language. It Is Just Amazing How Much Work They Put Into Their Character Designs. I Never Knew The Ps2 Could Get This Good, So I Am Giving The Highest Ratting For Graphics.

Sound: The Voice Acting Was So Good, Even The Character's Lips Moved Properly With The Voice. They Definetly Payed A Great Amount Of Time Finding The Perfect Actors For These Ever So Perfect Characters. The Voice Acting Was Well Done, Never Corny (cept For Monsieur) And Was Perfect For The Game Setting. The Music Is Also Quite Good. This I Noticed As Soon As I Turned On The Game. The Only Problem With The Sound Was The Voice On Monsieur, But Even This Was A Great Thing! You See, The Players Of, "the World," Complain About This Character As Well! In Other Words, They Made Monsieur's Voice Acting Stupid On Purpose! It Was Pretty Funny That They Decided To Do This (even Though Monsieur Play's Such A Minor Role In The Game.) I Will Give This Game The Second Best Ratting. I Knew These Sounds Were Possible And I Was Very Pleased.

Playability: The Game Became Quite Amazing As I Realized That You Were Really Playing Two Games At Once! One Game Offline As You Answer E-mails And Gather Clues To Finding A Cure For Your Friend, And The Game Online Are You Play Through The World Searching For The Answer To Your Friend's Illness. The Offline World Is Perfect! You Can Find Everything From Real World Events, Different Wallpapers For Your Desktop, Back Ground Music For Your Desktop, Along With An E-mailer To Keep Up With The Personal Lives Of Your Online Buddies! Everything You Say To A Person Effects Your Affection Rating With That Person. So If You Answer E-mails Correctly, Then You Will Get Their Appreciation And A Lot More Willingness To Play With You! They Will Also Reveal Things About Their Real-life And Even Share Secrets With You.

The Other Part Of The Game, "the World" Is Extremely Fun! This Part Of The Game Is A Simulation Of An Mmorpg (cept For You Its Offline) And It Brings A New And Interesting Type Of Genre To Your Console. The Game Plays Out Quite Smoothly And In Reality You Are Free To Do Anything You Want From Getting Your Party Together And Go Looking For Answers And Continueing The Storyline, Raising A Grunty (pig Like Animal That Can Give You Items, Act As A Steed And Many Other Things), Leveling Up On Your Own In One Of Many Dungeons, And Trading And Interacting With Your Online Friends. The Battle System Is Extremely Unique, However It Reminded Me Of Secret Of Mana. However, There Is Not Game That You Can Compare This To When Trying To Describe The Battle System. The Battle Is Done In Real-time Stopping Only When You Need To Select A Skill Or Issue A Command To Your Party. Very Well Done And Smooth. There Have Been Complaints About The Camera, But I Found It Rather Natural. It May Take A While To Get Used To But I Got Used To It Instantly. You Control Your Camera Angle By Using The Right Analog Joystick And The R1 And L1 Buttons, However I Found It Easier Just To Push R2 Which Instantly Centers The Camera The Way You Are Facing, Thus Fixing All Of Your Camera Problems. Overall The Playability Is Amazing. I Will Give It Its Best Ratting Because This Is A Unique And Amazing New Idea That Could Even Bring Upon Us A New Genre Of Gaming. Well Done Bandai!

Last Ability: This Is The First Game Of A 4 Part Series. There Is Also An Anime Series (made At The Same Time As The Game), Manga, Ova And Even A Movie. Bandai Is Putting Forth A Lot Of Attention To This Series (and With Very Good Reason). But Now Back To The Game. Since This Is A Four Part Game You Can Load Your Previously Saved Game From Part 1 Into Part 2, So All Of The Items You Have From Part One Will Carry Over To Part 2. Even After You Beat The Game You Are Still Able To Continue Leveling Up Your Character, Trading And Just Trying To Get To Know Your Online Buddies Through E-mail. The Game Literally Never Ends As It Enables You To Continue Playing Just As Though It Were A Real Mmorpg. So It Really Lasts As Long As You Can Last (and I Assure You, It Will Last A Long Time). I Will Give Its Highest Ratting!

I Hope This Was A Very Informative Review, And Even Though I Played It Only For A Day, I Have Already Put A Good 10 Hours Into The Game, And I Hardly Even Scratched The Surface Of The Storyline. There Is Much To Be Discovered In This Game And It Will Probably Go Down As On The The Top Rpgs Of All Time, Rivaling The Power Of The Final Fantasy Series."
