Hello. I am a 17 year old female who has played Fantage since 2009. I believe this review is the most recent and will help you in your decision. Fantage is a game where boys and girls "of all ages" can chat, play games, and buy items to customize. Fantage HAS a filter but has altered said filter many times. Children and teens can go through the filter with ease, and Fantage does nothing about it. Reporting also does nothing. If you are under 17, please watch who you friend or hang around with. Also, PLEASE take the time to avoid free membership sites, you will get hacked, and banned. Do NOT buy membership. The game pressures you to, members may even pressure you too (members bullying non-members has been a thing for a long time). If your child is under 14, please refrain from letting them use open chat. Safe chat is the best option.. I don't know if it's even an option anymore though. Safe chat limits what your child can read based on automated messages and even some cute emotes. Communication would be harder, then, but it'd be safer. Membership allows your child to buy MOST items in the game, Almost all events are in it for Members money. Being a member without gold is like being a non member without a membership. They'll milk you like a cash cow just for their dying game. Most of the kids on there can't even spell, and trust me, it isn't on purpose. The online dating is horrible and should not be tolerated. There is also a Fantage forum ingame, people swear and argue all the time, call each other names, and do not get banned or anything. Please avoid that at all costs. The ingame family and wun stuff is just wrong. My sister had always been on safe chat when she played with me, and I wouldn't let her accept random people without me checking them out first. At the time (before we both quit) she was 8, 9 now, despises the game just as much as I do. They've even turned the once fun events into cash crops. They will not help you if you have been hacked or have had payment errors.
Fantage will likely shut down in 2017-2018, when people start to realize.
