4.0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Golden Grunty October 12, 2003
From a story viewpoint, this is the most interesting of the .hack games so far. Kite's efforts to find a way to help his friend Orca and other players who now lay comatose find him cooperating with a surprising array of characters. Several new companions appear, including Balmung, who originally stood in Kite's way. In addition, Kite manages to unite Helba and Lios in an effort to fight the encroaching virus wave that is attacking not only the game, but the world beyond it. And in the background, frightened CC Corp executives are preparing to pull the plug on the games servers - even though this will end all efforts to cure the injured.
If the story and character definition have improves, though, the game play has stayed the same. This isn't all bad, since the .hack series is marked by an easily playable game interface for what is actually a complicated RPG dungeon based battle style. But after two games, the third gets a bit repetitious. The dungeons aren't quite the fun they were, and long time players will find themselves rushing through the levels once they have figured out the needed battle strategies.
Which introduces the real flaw in spreading the game over four volumes, something I'll call 'over-levelling' for lack of a better term. All of the games allow the player to continue once the core game is complete. During the down time between games one is encouraged to play to complete side quests and improve stats. Which I did after completing .hack//MUTATION.
Unfortunately, the side effect is that all my main characters were already at high levels when I started Outbreak. The result is that I spent a whole game with Kite getting exactly one experience point per kill. In other words, he advanced exactly one level during the entire game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet December 6, 2003
First of all, the two idiots who rated it one and zero screwed up this game's rating, but whatever. It's a great game, better than Mutation, and even better than Infection, in my opinion. Although it is identical to the first two games in many aspects, this is both a good and rarely bad thing. The story and characters are better than in this edition, the spells get pretty badass, and the weapons look awesome. For those of you who have played the first two, you finally get Balmung in this game, which makes it tough to decide between him and BlackRose. But anyway, great game with better characters and character development. Very recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars .hack//outbreak March 18, 2004
While .hack// is quite a phenomenon, a review of the enjoyment of this game has nothing to do with the anime series (although fans of the series can find little easter eggs in the game series).
The strengths of .hack//outbreak are the same as the first two in the series (.hack//infection and mutation): it has a great plot line, interesting new skill system, easy to use interface, and you can continue on your character into the next of the series. This is as expected, there were no changes to the game design. Despite this, I found this game to have lost some of its excitement (relevant to the series, it still found this game more exciting than other comparable games, like FFX or X-2).
In my opinion, they introduced a weakness to the series by making this a 4 installment series rather than a 3. I've started the 4th game and am very excited, but due to the total series game play hours and the layout of the plot, it would have been better as a 3 game series (with no plot changes, just the quantity of material per release changed). Go capitalism.
Like the previous game, if I were to say this game had any other weakness, it would be that it is quite a bit shorter than many comparable games. With completion of the story line (in this installment), the extras, and just having a little fun, I completed the game in about 30 hours.
Overall, the .hack//outbreak is a must have if you wish to play the series. I don't think that the series would have been as much fun if I did not play all of the installments. Having finished the first three game, .hack//mutation is my favorite of the series so far, but quarantine may very well take that throne once I finish it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fun, but... April 30, 2013
By Kayla
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is very fun, but also very short. I completed the game in less than a week, with a little under three days time total, and that's with having to work 8-10 hour shifts and playing a maximum of 8 hours throughout the day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dot Hack October 15, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really like this game, I find it extremelly fun. However some people might think otherwise, now that the fighting style is more strategic than actual fighting. Overall though the story line is very captivating, and I believe that one can easily get hooked into this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars dot hack Outbreak (part 3) June 7, 2004
This game was the greatest of the three dot hacks I haven't played 4 but it seems to be the best. You get new people after you beat the second one you get to use Wisemen in the 3rd one you find out that Mistral is pregnet and is a housewife it's crazy but I give this game five out of five it was hard at the end for me becuase I thought I could beat the last boss at level 72 but I couldn't so I gained more levels and then I went to the area where the red wand was found and beat that you see a new guy laughing and disaper out of thin air. and you get Sora's Blade which is a rare level 34 which is cool it glows white. when you fight the last boss use the new blademaster and Blackrose which you have to do. The new blademaster is level 60 which ruled for me becuase I went to hard levels and gained mondo exp. you get a new Heavy Axe which is a girl you find out that she is level 1 which is a laugh what I did was gave her level 60 heavy items and a level 34 heavy axe. and I went to the first area to a level 18 and made her up to 20 then I left to the other area and I got her up too level 70.
