Gamespot has reviewed the Japanese console RPG, .hack: Outbreak. The score is a mediocre 6.4; here's a clip:
The new game offers almost nothing new in terms of graphics, sound, or anything, and even though the dungeons are randomized, by now you'll have slogged through so many dozens of them that there will be absolutely no surprises in store here. The combat, meanwhile, is as awkwardly paced as ever, since the real-time action must constantly be paused so that you can use items, issue basic orders to your party members, and so forth. There's little real strategy or depth to be found, though the combat is tougher this time than in previous episodes, thanks to the predominance of enemies that are either impervious to magic or to physical attacks. Outbreak, like its predecessors, is short by RPG standards--it will take you around 20 hours to play through it--but the action is so incredibly repetitive from the get-go that the game still feels much too long.
