.hack//fragment (English Patched) (ドットハック フラグメント) is a Action RPG/RPG video game published by Bandai, CyberConnect2 released on November 23rd, 2005 for the Sony PlayStation 2.
.hack//fragment is an MMORPG based off of the .hack Series of games. It was originally released in japan only and since the Fall of the PS2 all Servers were taken offline. However, one man and his team have dedicated time and effort to building their own server and even translating the game. (More information such as how to play online can be found on Coldbird’s Website: https://www.coldbird.net/) (RIP)
That said the game also sports an original Single Player mode to train up your character when not playing online. It plays almost the same to the 4 .hack games and features characters from the games, the .hack//sign anime series, and even Legend of the Twilight Bracelet series. Its a fun experience but can be some times be merciless in single player as Complete Death will rob you of an entire Level of experience.
As a Warning in advance to prevent cheating an annoying system is in place. If you turn off the game or it is powered down without returning to the title screen you will be penalized by losing all of your equipment but I forget if you keep your level or not.
I have yet to try out the online function but even the offline is rather fun in short bursts and any fan of series should give this a shot.
