The goods and bads

*Goods* This game is a fine game its not an inappropriate site/game it also needs u to "farm" to get a cool class that can solo bosses and its what "HARD WORK" is when u go to other servers "people" will help u out to get "something" like a cool sword or maybe a cool set and it also might be a cool class, "TEAMWORK." The grapichs of the game are good. *Bads* This game gets more boring and boring and when u disconnect while doing a quest u will repeat it all over again and if ur quest needs to kill monsters to go to the other side and then u disconnected u will repeat it until u can unlock the other side and u have to pay for membership to get the Member Items and it occupies time and the only things u are going to fight when u are a beginner is monsters literally monsters and then u will get tired of the game so easily.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much consumerism
age 8+


This game is amazing for younger kids and older kids, its got action in it and fighting but its duled down so that 8 year old kids and up are not seeing blood or anything, Although this game is updating all the time and some things are hard to figure out, so if u do allow your kid to play this game, you should see the game yourself and help them with some challenges, because a lot of quests require thinking.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (11):
Kids say (36):

AdventureQuest Worlds is a simple and casual MMORPG, making it a good entry point for kids interested in exploring MMOs. The graphics are engaging, the gameplay is easy to learn. The game is constantly adding content and some events include music and voice-over. As it is a browser based game, the game only saves a character's equipment and experience. All quests and quest items are temporary and unless turned in for equipment and experience points, will vanish when the player logs out. This may result in kids not wanting to log off if they are near the end of the quest so as to not miss items.

One good thing about AdventureQuest Worlds is that the real money shop buys you cosmetic items instead of items that make you stronger in the game. Thus kids are less likely to feel the pressure to spend real money in this virtual world than in others currently on the market. While free to play, a paid subscription opens up additional quests and allows players to have pets.
