Hack Infection – PS2 – Review

One of the most original games in a long time…

Lets face it; the RPG Genre has gotten really stale over the years. It seems like every RPG game that has been released is just a carbon copy of the one released a few months before that with better graphics and a different set of characters. So in comes .hack, its goal is to try to innovate this genre and take it to a new level, by combining both online RPG’s and offline ones into one game. Can this combination work out, or is it another failed attempt to innovate this genre? Read on to find out!

When the game is loaded for the first time, the character you are playing as creates a character to use on “the world”. After that players will sign on to “the world” and meet your real world friend, who is going to teach you how to play the game. While out on your first mission, something devastating happens, your friend gets hurt in the game, and now he is in a coma at a local hospital. It is your goal to find out what caused your friend to become in this dilapidated state. As time goes on you acquire many times such as: “gate hack”, “Data Drain”, and many other tools and friends that help you along this journey. There are many characters out in the game…

The game takes place in a few main areas: main screen, town, fields, and dungeons. When players first load the game, they will be booted up to the welcome screen. Here players have the options to login to the world, check their email, look at the news, and change game options. Once they hit the login to the world, they can either post messages on the forums or go into the actual game. These features are really neat, since it really gives the players the impression that they are really playing an online game. Different characters will email you thoughout the game, and you can even reply to them, but all of the emails are predefined. All of the news is what is currently going on in the game, such as information on new server upgrades and small tips to help the players out. The forums in the game work like real forums…
