I sincerely hope people won't blindly vote negatively on this next chapter of SAO III just because of its title and the fact its "SAO".

Everything that has happened in Part 1 of the story so far, has led up to an interesting point.

This recap was made in a way that even if you weren't really into part 1, you definitely got a good overview of the most important key scenes and see a summarized version leading up to the next chapter of the story.

I do sincerely hope they don't milk content as they did for a few episodes in Part 1, where they basically were ...

Not too much to say... basically recap of the previous season. It's only useful if you've watched the first part of Alicization when it first aired and need a refresher before the second season begins.
If you haven't watched the first part then this is no replacement, you need to watch the first part to know what's going on. If you've just finished watching the first part and it's still fresh then you don't need to bother with this, it's just a recap and is not intended to further the plot. Just skip it and move on to War of Underworld.

Retelling 24 episodes in a timeframe shorter than episode 1. If that sounds like an impossible feat, you're absolutely right. There's nothing new, enhanced, or special about this recap and it doesn't substitute for watching this first 2 cours. I can't help but wonder why reviewers are putting up scores of 8, 9, or even 10s on a recap episode.

[5] Story - they cut 2 cours into a 24 minute episode, it's not going to substitute for watching the anime, it's not that entertaining imo as to rewatching the entire first 2 cours, and it doesn't add anything new.

[6] Art - no major improvements here, ...
