"Games based on an anime series have become a rarity in the West. Unless they are based off of Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, or Gundam, these titles rarely are brought over in English. However, perhaps thanks to its English run on television and the fact that the light novel is also being translated and released in English, Bandai Namco decided to bring Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment over for Vita owners, and fans of the series to enjoy. However, is this title actually worth owning?"
