Mother in distress, bad game.

My child was playing this the game and he told me "mommy come look at this game!" I went over to look at it and somebody had attacked him and left him a message saying *beware there is swearing here* "suck my wang "they said the p word" you just got attacked female dog "they said the b word"" and there was a mushroom that looked quite strange "8=====D" Why would somebody be so rude! It's not normal to be that rude, I mean, He's 13! He doesn't need this type of language, It's a bad influence. That's just like if his father came up to him and punched him in the face!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Edgeworld's gameplay is similar to Kabam's previous strategy game Global Warfare, but it introduces a convincing sci-fi theme to the mix, complete with polished graphics, exotic alien adversaries, and a stellar soundtrack. Players are in a constant state of warfare, defending their base while planning their next attack against enemy bases. However, buildings and troops are never permanently lost (buildings get repaired after a certain amount of time has passed), so being attacked is not a devastating experience, and as a result the game never becomes overly vindictive. As players progress further into the game, the pacing slows down since buildings require more resources and time to upgrade, and only one building can be upgraded at a time unless players are willing to pay to speed things up. On the other hand, this makes Edgeworld a good choice for casual gamers who don't want to sink hours into the game at a time and would prefer to simply check in a few times per day.
