Well, I personally love this game. Whilst the animation/Character models aren't anything spectacular, it's a very easy game to play. It's fairly simple, but there are a few aspects that I would be incredibly confused about if I was not the nerd I am. The violence isn't graphic, but of course if you are concerned for your child, do steer them away from this one, because there are guns, knives and killing. The killing is associated with a sound effect, but nothing traumatizing or permanently haunting. Pirate101 isn't really accompanied with good messages sadly. There are quite a lot of teens (and rude kids) playing this game who cheat the chat filters to swear and say inappropriate things. A lot of these players also online date and bully. However, I still love Pirate101 and I think it's a good game, I'd like it more if it weren't for the few rude people who do ruin the community.
