I feel like the second half gets to much hate i will say the first half was amazing and the second half was somewhat different but it was still entertaining and i enjoyed it very much. I do think it is certainly worth while watching it.

Yes because the plot is still there but it wasn't as enjoyable.

Well as people say, it was rushed. But, honestly, I DID enjoy it. It's kinda like when you find a mediocre anime, but it's interesting enough to finish it. The first half was by far the best, but the second made me want to see how it ended.

Nope, personally not because I haven't even bothered to carry on with it from the end of the original season

Yes it is worth watching, especially if you watch it before getting caught up by the hatedom in forums and comments. By and large it seems the people complaining about it seem to have not understood that SAO is Drama and Romance first, then adventure, and lastly action.

Watching it as an action anime they apparently didn't invest in the Asuna/Kirito relationship that is what really drove the entire story from early in the first arc and on through the rest, that would explain people saying they didn't feel the sense of danger or urgency in the second half.

The same applies to people complaining about 'harems' or 'love triangles.' There should never have been the slightest idea in peoples minds that Kirito would be romantically interested in any other girl than Asuna, and he clearly isn't if you watch the show. Yet even so people talked about how they were concerned that it would end up somehow as Suguha/Kirito, or any other harem or love triangle sort of development.

Most of the complaints other than those seem to tend along the "It's popular so it's bad mindset" rather than any actual criticism of the show's qualities.

It wasn't as good as the first arc, but it was still good (my opinion).

Although they're actually going to animate more of the light novels now, specifically GGO. And even though it doesn't take place in ALO (obviously) if you want a full story then yeah, I think you should watch it. There's only really a couple of story elements though, and they are mostly in the last episode or two. So you can watch just the ending if that wouldn't bother you.

The first half was amazing for me, however I thought the second half was lacking.
I'd still recommend the second half.

I found the first maybe 5 episodes excellent, but when it started to turn into a romance thing I stopped watching, I don't think I will watch anything from this series the honeymoon arc was such a drag.
