Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. To start off with, Second Life is what many people call a 'virtual world' rather than a computer game. On Second Life, you can create your own avatar, customize him or her by appearance, and explore a huge virtual world, full of plenty of things to do. The graphics are quite good. Very good in fact! You can even customize your graphical settings to your liking.
Summary: My favourite game of all-time I think! Shenmue is pretty close though. Just a wonderful online social experience. I feel like it redefines MMORPG and provides an experience unlike anything else, where anything is possible and we can just hang out, explore, travel the world, fly amongst the stars, make new friends, fall in love, build worlds, literally anything you want, all from the My favourite game of all-time I think! Shenmue is pretty close though.
Summary: Im mostly writing this, because im shocked to see so many fake "10s" here. Dont trust these guys. Blitzkrieg 2 is the bastard brother of one of the best strategy games ever. This game is a disaster, dont buy it.
Summary: although this is an old game, and the player base is tiny, I it is a very good game. decent single player too. I still love this game. only drawback is relatively poor pathing, no player vs AI customs, and rarely has more than 15-20 people in the multi player (including running games). that said, usually have no problems finding a 3v3 match.
Summary: This thing is scary. Second Life is not a game it's a 3D chat room and most of the people in this great world of Second Life are socially broken and rather disturbing to talk too. I found multiple people who where having really nasty conversations and the idea that people live in this thing is just plain creepy. I saw some really dirty stuff too that will burn in my head for many many This thing is scary.
Summary: This game would be better if it gave to the patrons what it promises esp to the patrons that actually pay. Yet the creators dont have an issue with billing. No no problem with that. But you can't contact them about issues related to the game. They wont talk to you. Someone at Second Life missed the ethics class when growing up.
Summary: This is a conditional 5 star rating. This game WILL NOT WORK with any Windows version beyond XP. I have tried and tried but it is impossible because of the Starforce Protection that cannot be worked around. IF they fixed this game it is fantastic to play. BUT...warning, unless you are using a 10 year old PC, it WILL NOT WORK.
Excerpt: What if I tell you now you will be able to lead another life and have another husband or wife!? About 6 months ago while doing a research on cyber culture I came across this social game called Second Life. I was directed to secondlife.com where I had to choose one of the noob avatars and a unique username for my account. After the mundane process of registration I was asked to download the official Second Life viewer. The viewer looks green in color.
Pros: good for socialization and money making
Cons: one might hurt themselves by entering into a long distance virtual relationship
