What I Paid: $34.95

Verdict: Not Shovelware. More than 100 hours. 100%ed it.

What I Say: I broke my rule of never buying games unless they are 75% off or more for this game. I’d experienced the first title (Rebirth) on the PS/3 and was keen to complete the story.

The set-up for this game is that you are a real human playing an MMORPG as a character named Haseo. The MMORPG is glitching and there appears to be real-world consequences of online actions. It’s up to you to investigate and try to fix things both in the online world and the real world.

Like all good JRPGs, there are tons of things to do and lots of side quests to flesh out the overall story. Small annoyances are having to log in and log out of the “MMORPG” quite often in order to advance the storyline and travel in the world gets somewhat repetitive after a while. I also wasn’t a fan of the motorcycle riding and used a glitch to get through many of the races.

Shino is a troubling character. Haseo is quite hostile towards her, to the point of being abusive and cruel, and yet she just puts up with this.
