    PS2 Remaster done Right

    I waited a very long time in hopes this game got the HD re-master it deserves. I was only able to play volume 2 of the G.U. series and I loved it so much. I could never buy the others for ps2 because they're really expensive and a rare find nowadays. The series is that good, so I definitely can say why it was so expensive and hard to find. The day I found out the trilogy got a re-master for ps4, I was really happy and a bit teared up it. Such a great series in my opinion should have not disappeared from the world of gaming and anime. There are a lot of other anime concepts that came from the concepts of the Dot.Hack series in general. So without mention of a worthy predecessor, who would even know it existed without the original fans that loved it so much. As a dedicated fan, it's like reliving the moment one more time. Especially if you never got to experience the full story. To even top that, special gameplay for after the events of G.U. is a worthwhile bonus. There are a lot of beautiful songs in the series too, so its great to hear those again too. To all the fans out there who really missed this series; it's saying "welcome back home." Who knows, maybe we'll hopefully get a re-master of the very original Dot.Hack games with Kite. Only time will tell, and even if it does not, I'm proud to at least gotten the Dot.Hack G.U. Trillogy re-mastered. Thank you Bandai for bringing this game a well deserved re-master; and Cyber-Connect2 for the original development!!

    A wonderful, thoughtful send-off

    I remember playing all six .hack games back in the day, and the cheat mode is awesome for a lot of reasons. Even though much love went into this remake and compilation, you can see how dated and slow the playstyle is. For someone who doesn't really care how good or bad gameplay is unless it's really infuriating, it's not hard to see how slow battles are. I love looking back on all the world-building that went in. You can feel the 90s to early 2000s style in the online content, sites, and presentation, but there really is not many games made with this much content per game anymore. Plus, they were all gathered into one game, which makes it a very nice offer to fans, both new and old. I definitely couldn't see SE or other companies be so generous with their games. However, I feel that the 4th volume was definitely an add-on thought that came down the road once you realize there's a better way to end a story you had a long time ago. It doesn't really match up with the Returner OVA, but I do like the ending they did settle on (even if it meant Haseo wound up with Atoli /shudder) because it focuses on Haseo and Ovan. Even in their joke ending, you can feel Ovan trolling Haseo, so they're both legitimate and good ways to end the franchise. I did feel the sadness of seeing The World's servers close and it does finally seem like a closed finale.

    Reliving nostalgia from the PS2 era

    Great remake of the .hack//G.U. trilogy originally on the PS2. I like all of the improvements made to this remake. Haseo runs faster, so dungeons don't take hours, the combat system is slightly tweaked, you get more EXP and GP now, and Avatar battles are easier now, they were a real pain on the original PS2 games. Parody Mode and the terminal disc are also included in the remake, as well as a Part 4 Reconnect, which is basically an epilogue to the trilogy. My only complaint is that coming off Persona 5, normal battles in this game are way too easy. Other than that, well worth the $50 if you were a fan of the .hack games. Hopefully Bamco will also remake the original .hack Kite quadrilogy with all the trappings, as well as some of the obscure PSP games.

    Nice package - Prepare for 30+gb download

    Game is as advertised, a upscaled version of .hack. I haven't gotten too deep into the game, but smacked right away with a download of 33gb or so downloaded only while game is running. Episode 1 and 4 are included, 2,3, and special features have to be downloaded which happens automatically when you start the game, but doesn't load outside of the game is my understanding like most games. There are videos that help spell out the story before you begin with events from the original .hack series, but it doesn't have a pause,rewind button. When you have 23 min videos, it kinda is not cool. Overall though, I'd buy again. I got the item for $30 and am very satisfied.

    The first game in this collection came out in 2004 I believe and I never even heard of it but I had heard of the anime series. I really missed out back then though. This is an action rpg with no random battles, they take place once your character makes physical contact with an enemy or vice versa. I’m not gonna spoil any story details but it’s like a game within a game. Haseo logs in to “The World” and plays the game which is like an MMORPG. It’s a pretty cool way they set this up. Since this is a collection there’s a cheat mode too, if you just wanna experience the story without grinding and that kinda stuff.

    For its 15th anniversary not only are we getting a remaster of .hack G.U. Vol 1-3 but a brand new volume was made to complete the set. And the entire collection runs in 1080p at 60fps. This takes after the original 4 .hack games but a special video is on the disc detailing those past events. This is more than anyone could've asked for and I'm glad special care went into this collection. If you've never played .hack or want to experience it again now is the time.

    This package is an incredible value, even for fans of the PS2 originals, such as myself. While I'd no immediate interest in playing through the games again, the fan service that went into the new chapter made it worthwhile. It's got a great array of built-in cheats too, for those that just want to experience the story and completely eliminate grinding. Here's to hoping the original quadrilogy gets the same treatment one day!

    Solid jrpg, somewhat dated

    .hack gu is a good story with great world building but it has somewhat mediocre gameplay. I'm not going to spoil the story, but the world building is done by logging on to fictional forums inside the game. You don't have to read them, but they do show how other (npc)players are reacting to what's happening in the mmo portion of the game. Also what the developers imagined what would happen in the future.
