.hack G.U. Trilogy
Nevertheless, enough of the action set-pieces and bad romantic clichés work to keep the whole mess reasonably diverting, which is far more than can be said for its prequel. The action scenes function on a purely visual level, serving up such flash and dazzle that their inability to viscerally engage matters little. Characters streak and collide in earth-shattering displays of power, are trapped like Promethean sacrifices in baroque prisons of flame and stone, and sheathed in parasitic darkness that lashes out with the ferocity of their inner demons. Beautiful stuff that can easily make one forget that it's all delivered with the panache (and artificial 3D CG) of a video game; which isn't surprising given that it's directed by .hack game maestro Hiroshi Matsuyama.
.hack G.U. Trilogy
The PlayStation 2 action-RPG trilogy .hack//G.U. is coming remastered to PC, Bandai Namco have announced. Normally I strip goofy punctuation and capitalisation out of game names but the goofiness of .hack//G.U. is fitting. The story is centered on a fictional MMORPG, see, which players can actually log off from to poke around their in-game computer's desktop. I do like a good in-world desktop. Coming later this year, .hack//G.U. Last Recode [official site] will contain all three volumes: Rebirth, Reminisce, and Redemption.
"[. . .] the world of .hack focuses on the mysterious events surrounding a wildly popular in-universe massively multiplayer role-playing game called The World. .hack//G.U. begins after the events of the original .hack series with players assuming the role of Haseo as he tracks down a powerful Player Killer named Tri-Edge who killed his friend's in-game avatar Shino, and put her in a coma in real life.
As for its presentation, .hack//G.U. Last Recode is still obviously built on the bones of a mid-2000s RPG, but the team has done an admirable job of upscaling The World R.2 to HD resolution. Character models are much sharper than their original iterations, obviously, and little updates like enhanced lighting showcase the usage of stronger hardware.
The .hack games are definitely some of my favorite, but that's more so because of nostalgia than anything. I played through both series with a buddy of mine and feel like I might revisit this on the Switch to relive those memories.
one of the things i enjoyed about the original 4 .hack games (the kite ones) was how many variables it felt like there was when it came to the field areas wheres with GU the difference in appearance was largely just the weather wheres the originals there were quite a few more field types.
@somebread To get most of the .hack story, you'll have to dive into light novels, anime, manga, etc. It's very all over the place and convoluted like the Kingdom Hearts series. However, if you just want to play the games, there are YouTube videos that breakdown and decipher most of the story for you.
OverviewWhen FUNimation announced that they had acquired all of the dormant .hack anime series licenses that were abandoned after the closure of Bandai Entertainment many fans were excited to see that at least .hack//Sign would be getting re-released. Though with that grouping also came the different feeling .hack//Legend of the Twilight, the prequel to the G.U. games .hack//Roots, and rounding out the licenses we have the .hack//G.U. Trilogy Movie. Attempting to combine the trilogy of .hack//G.U. games into an hour and a half movie would be quite a feat but does this film manage to at least be partially successful?
With such little time to actually focus on character development, proper pacing, elements of the story, and everything else while trying to cram in the beginning of the story, the first climactic battle, and their own rushed ending .hack//G.U. Trilogy ends up becoming an absolute mess that reserves itself for only the most hardcore fans of the series as practically nothing is explained in any detail and the vast majority of the side characters, even fan favorites such as Alkaid, are barely introduced or given any central purpose as the story roots itself in focusing on Haseo and Atoli.
ExtrasThe .hack//G.U. Trilogy Movie release comes with quite a few special features on the disc as it contains a six minute long video containing various scenes that have been heavily modified to include humorous dialogue and situations that are actually very funny and provides a bit of extra content for fans of the franchise.
Overall.hack//G.U. Trilogy Movie provides the bare minimum level of details to enjoy the basic story of what was offered in the original video game alongside plenty of flashy action sequences . That being said, the unique and often quite fancy looking in action CG feels dated more often than not and the fact that so much of the original story is left by the wayside in order to cut down the content here, this is something that only the most hardcore .hack fans will enjoy.Capsule Computers review guidelines can be found here.
The thrilling G.U. trilogy comes to a close in .hack//G.U. Vol. 3: Redemption, as players learn the truth behind "The World" and Haseo's ultimate sacrifice to save mankind from the grasp of evil. Evolving the series' action-RPG gameplay, Vol. 3 lets players customize their party with 22 unique characters, transform their avatars into new forms for even more destructive power, enhance their Steam Bikes and investigate the mysteries hidden deep within massive new dungeons.

Pro monstrshitu .hack//ROOTS byl i takhle nadbytečný díl docela příjemnou záležitostí. Přinejmenším se dá na většinu postav dívat i bez rozhoupání žaludku a hlavně je zde hojně užito fantastického a výrazného soundtracku .hack//SIGN, tudíž opravdu je co poslouchat. Nebyl to až tak zlý mejdan, i když příští už nejspíš vynechám, ten ukníkanec z .hack//Tasogare... mi totiž dost pil krev.(21.10.2007) 041b061a72
