    Cool idea but could have been worked on more.

    .dot hack Infection has a very cool idea, you are a character you plays another character in an MMO, and its virtual reality. Strange things are happening in the game world and people are getting hurt in real life. It is... Read Full Review

    Yet another piece of the .hack universe squandered with mediocrity only fans could enjoy.

    I really enjoyed this game from the beginning, but by the end I was ready for it to be over.

    I really enjoyed the TV series that was available when this game was released. I was hoping to enjoy the game just as much. From the start, I really liked how the game makes you feel like you are playing an MMORPG. It... Read Full Review
