lovefire writes: LOL  I was entertained by your monologue while you enrolled in school at the Wizard Academy! My first experience was awesomely confusing. I checked out the game while looking for a something online my grandson and I could play together. Yes... I said grandson.  Not only do we enjoy playing this game together, but I have met many other adults who play regularly as well. The game is simple enough and SAFE for quite young but complicated and engrossing for adults as well.  There is a myrad of opportunities to involve yourself in the play. I am pleased that you reviewed it and hope to catch you on the spiral having a great time! BTW my oldest character (you can have up to six under one username) is a level 88!

interesting dialog. on first note lets get a negative out of the way. in the beginning you mentioned wizard101 as an adventure game yet wizard101 does not meet the requirements for an adventure game. there are several differences such as adventure games are about solving puzzles in which you play a premade character. wizard101 is none of these hence it is an rpg game which is similar in some aspects to adventure with 1: usually a character is made by player although can be premade 2: involves questing instead of puzzle solving

for an opinion other then my own:

ad·ven·ture game


  1. puzzle-solving computer game: a puzzle-solving computer game in which players take on the role of characters in the game world but that generally lacks the numerical characteristics of role-play games

so please everyone stop refering wizard101 as an adventure game as it is an insult to true adventure games to call a mmorpg as such. for an example of an adventure game view the king's quest series.


Now that the negative is out of the way i found the review to be quite funny with the voice-over. it brought some enjoyment to this old gamer's heart :) Glad you like the game as much as i do [this is now almost the longest i have played a mmorpg (roughly equal now to how long i played runescape)] hope to see you in game.

You were a blast to listen to, Ripper X :)  I've been playing a couple years - this was my first MMPORG game, and after playing Wizard101, I can't imagine ever going back to playing Zuma ;-)  You have a great voice, expressive, clear enunciation ... I would follow you anywhere ... well, anywhere in Wizard101, that is ;-)

Hope you stay with us.

Hey Ripper X! Loved the review! I remember how confused I was the first time I logged on. I'm a mom, my daughter got me hooked on this, and I craft and garden (you gets lots of goodies both ways!).  I LOVE THIS GAME! It's truly multi-generational; I've got friends of all ages and from around the world! So much fun; if you want to, look for one of my wizards; Suri Moontalon, lvl 77 balance; Alura Ironthorn, lvl 65 death (try it! it's great!); and Iridian Hawkwraith, lvl 52 myth.  I'll friend you, there's no such thing as too many friends! :D

I had never played a MMORPG before and was nervous for her to be in an online environment. I got hooked pretty quickly and our whole family plays now...for going on three years! It is definitely multi-generational and my husband and I enjoy playing with our kids. My first school was also Balance (she's lvl 90 now!), now I have two accounts and wizards from all the schools. Come join us at Wizard101's a GREAT fansite community. And the realm to play in is Scarecrow! I hope you keep playing....enjoy! Thu Feb 28 2013 4:30PM Report

Just watched your video review - nice to see Wizard101 getting more attention.  It is a great game for families, kids, and adults.  Your video pointed out some of the challenges facing new players well.  The game is great because as it progresses the intensity of play can vary with the person playing the game.  There are places to obsess if you like - pets, PvP, crafting, and more.  The writing is humorous and enjoyable.  Be sure to also notice the names of NPCs throughout the game; someone at KI is definitely a Sting fan!  

Picky note: there are no AOEs in Wizard101.  There are "attack all" spells available but AOEs don't happen.  This may seem a small note but when you have to fight numerous spiders or other baddies you will wish there were AOEs.

Thumbs up to you for "Stay classy San Diego!"

Strangenight writes:

I'm a 4+ year adult player as well.  Level 50 or higher in every school of magic.  It is a great game for kids, which is where I got started, while 'auditioning' games to find something I fel was appropriate for my son's 1st foray into online gaming.  Only, well, I got hooked as well.  There is a lot of depth to the game with gardening, pets, crafting, and even decorating the player housing, to keep players of all ages entertained and enthralled for hours.  The free portion of the game only allows you do explore a few areas of Wizard City, and none of the other worlds, but it is big enough to give you a good feel for the game and decide if a subscription or a pay-by-area option work for you.  Annual subscription sales run a few times a year giving a rate that is less than $5 a month, making this one of the most affordable subscription games out there. 

I advise any gamers to give it a try and don't dismiss it out of hand as a kids only game.  There are many adult players in the worlds of the Spiral that enjoy a challenging game that does not involve cursing, shooting, blood splatters, or decapitations, and this game fills that niche above and beyond expectations.
