I think maybe you're confusing the pronunciation of words with the pronunciation of letters.  It's a different thing.  Take the example of the acronym FOB.  In medicine it means fecal occult blood, but in usuage it's said "eff -oh -bee".  In military terms FOB means forward operating base but it's pronounced as a word "fob".  So for the first one you would say an F.O.B. and for the second you would say "I was at 'a' FOB last night.  As I said before it's based on how it is used.  Check out if you have any more questions.  

Noone isn't a word; It's "no one". On a side note, you can guess where the word "none" came from.
Their, There, and They're are not interchangeable.

i played for about a yr got a lifetime subscription in the hopes new areas would be available to explore however as with most sony products that isn't the aim. the cash shop gets more frequent updates than the world does and the introduction of farming/gardening is pointless unless they allow you to do it on the lots with your house......frankly i've been disapointed and the games port to ps3 hasn't changed my opinion

so say we all

 "m" begins with a vowel in spoken language. you write 'm' but pronounce "em". if you can pronounce 'm' without any vowels in front of it like in the word "Matrix" then its with an A.


trust me.


my english - being my third language - isnt strong enough to think of a word that actually starts with a vowel in pronounciation but not in spelling, and i'm not sure if they exist but if "mmorpg" was a word -and its not - then it would either have an E at begining or receive the 'an' since there's an e-sound there regardless of spelling.


spelling reflects spoken language not the other way around.


 I was just contemplating this the other day and reached the same conclusion. It sounds like 'em', a vowel, so it needs "an" in front of it. " A MMO" sounds so wrong and awkward.

The game was about perfect for kids and was even fun for adults, at launch. Health Potions were essential for completing many of the quests with out dying, but the vendor prices for loot drops were high enough that you could self fund your potion needs and have a small amount of currency left.

However, a few months in, Sony got greedy. They cut the vendor payouts for drops by 90% (yes, you only got 10% of what vendors used to pay for drops), which then forced players to buy potions with real money, if they wanted to continue to get perfect completions on level appropriate quests.

It was right after this change that FRs previously mindboggling momentum at signing up new users crashed and burned. (I think they had hit four or five million in short order, before the game maiming change to the economy).

The game offered good incentives for paying the $5/month fee. It also offered weapons and armor in the cash shop that were worth buying and with weapons being class specific, it was likely that people willing to pay for one weapon would by others as they added and leveled additional classes.

I don't know what the in game economy looks like now, but at the time, SOE, in typical SOE fashion, killed the goose that laid the golden egg with idiotic, short term greed.

fiontar is right, the game was much better before the drastic NGEesque changes to the game.  It used to be a pretty good family MMO, now it just okay.

The review on this would be above a 5.0 (so-so) if it bothered to mention the Cash Shop and the fact that some of the jobs (professions) are unable to be advanced without Cash Shop purchases.


That is the reason I quit playing Free Realms. There should not be a subscription, or at least it should be very low, for example $1 a month since players wanting to play certain jobs MUST upgrade to advance thru the Cash Shop.


The above is what I remember, oh yes, gifting other people what they need from the Cash Shop is missing from Free Realms as well.


Greedy, but then it's Sony. No real surprise on the greed there, eh?

Free Realms is nothing more than a few popular web/console games bolted onto the skeleton of an mmo the size of a postage stamp.  It tries to be a real mmo and at the same time force players to play minigames from other popular titles that do not feel connected to the mmo side of the game.  It tries to do so many different things that it ends up a confusing mess that doesn't really do anything well. 

The game engine is pretty slick though, but the design of the game seems like nothing more than trying to cram a bunch of popular concepts from other games and trying to figure out ways to force people to pay for it.  It just didn't work.

It's really good if you want to be more casual... if you want to play hardcore then there are other MMOGs for you... I love Free Realms casue I only need 30mins to 1 hour to get some gaming in.

 Childish to adults
 Duel-only PvP
 Little challenge


A game which focuses on kids is childish to adults? that is one the of CON of Free Realms? okie. Also i still have to play a MMO which is not repetitive.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

It is ridiculous though the review this from an adults perspective... it should be reviewed from the perspective of it's design and intention.

It's like giving a PvP game a low score because you reviewed it from a PvE perspective.

Not attacking the reviewer personally, but the fact that some adults play it doesen't mean that it should be reviewed as an adult game.

If she felt that it was an 7.5-8 for chlldren then that should of been the listed score.
