I've played the game since launch but I was really hoping they could develop a better world. Every place I've been to in the game looks almost exactly the same and the dungeons does seem like a copy-paste.

Also, it seems the game's AI can behave strangely at times. Sometimes, my party members have a hard time following me while other times, they seem to be all over the place. The weapon system is so-so. It's clear that some weapons are better than others though in particular when comparing to the legendary ones. I personally think the grenades are a bit powerful with its AOE damage.

The multiplayer feels really underwhelming as it's hard to find someone to group up with even at peak hours. Safe to say I'll be passing on the season pass. Btw, for those who pre-purchased the game from Steam, you can get Sword Art Online: Re: Hollow Fragment as a bonus but they delayed it to an unknown time.

On the plus side, this is the best SAO game made yet. Hopefully the upward trend continues with any future releases.

It is also nice to see anime based games finally being made with current gen graphics in UE4

I played all of the SAO games but hated Hollow Realization - the translation was simply too dumbed down it no longer feels real. One scene right at the beginning, Kirito said, "Let's go spelunking into a cave", who the HELL IS THAT GUY? It looks like Kirito but he's certainly not him .I never even bothered with the rest of the game after that scene. I wish localization companies will be more faithful to the original and stopped assuming everyone wants their version.

I am now going to check out some cutscenes online before I risk paying the 60usd for a trash imitation of the real thing, but the game looks fun though, let's hope
