    UNUSUAL AND UNDER-APPRECIATED

    .Hack//Infection is one of the most original games I have played thus far. Originally I picked it up on a whim, not knowing anything about it, and before I knew it I was being whisked into a very convincing sim-MMORPG t... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about .hack//Infection Part 1

  • Review Score:8.3

    The Original Idea behind .Hack is very Interesting to see from the point of view of someone who does not play any MMORPG's. Although its really not one in terms of how they really are (its more like Phantasy Star Online... Read Full Review

    .hack//Infection Part 1. My thoughts of the game

    I just completed this game not all that long ago, and I thought this game was all right, but there were some things that annoyed me about the game. One thing was the gameplay. The gameplay is a bit repetitive, but it's f... Read Full Review

    What happens when a MMORPG gets infected? We're here to find out.

    The game's concept is superb. Is something never done before, a game inside a game. Inspired in the anime .hack//SIGN, this is a start to a series of 4 games which will mark history in the .hack// terminology. It does... Read Full Review

    A game that strives for something unique, but ultimately falls short of its goal, and becomes just another action RPG.

    If you someone who enjoys online games but doesn’t exactly want to be called a “n00b” then, in theory, .hack is for you. The game takes the premise of an MMORPG and bundles it into an offline package. You can still tra... Read Full Review

    If there was a uniqueness score here, I'd definitely give this game some more props. The concept of game within a game is, like you can read in any game magazine, this games best selling point. However, I bought the ga... Read Full Review
