    It definitely has it's pros and cons.

    "User Based" does not mean "high quality and immersive experience."

    In the beginning, I fell under the spell of Second Life. However, recent events have shed a light onto the monster that is SL. Second Life lets you create an avatar. However, this also means you don't have to be the... Read Full Review

    Poor graphics, difficult to become immersed into, and awkward controls make this game just plain not worth playing

    Maybe it's just me, maybe I didn't give it a fair enough chance, or maybe the game really does just suck. Honestly, I think the entire idea is a great concept and I was pretty excited to try it out and see what the game ... Read Full Review
