Few MMORPGs have been around for more than a decade. Wizards 101, a kid-friendly option released in 2008, is among them. This great title found its way into the MMORPG Hall of Fame in 2014. Here's a quick overview of why Wizard101 might be an excellent fit for you.

Built for Kids, Fun for All

Wizard101 is geared for a younger audience. It focuses on unlocking gear and other rewards by completing different kinds of quests. Follow quest-lines throughout the realm of Spiral, meeting other players and making friends through team-based combat as well as communal hangout areas like towns and cities.

Wizard101 does have a structured subscription system. The beginning zones are completely free to play. After that, you can purchase entry to higher levels using crowns. Crowns are the in-game currency you earn or purchase using real-life funds.

The best deal is to be a full member of Wizard101.

Full membership grants you access to all zones, as well as provide you with in-game perks like crafting, gathering, and even house ownership. It's a 5/5 immersive experience for kids and adults alike. All-in-all, it's structured like any other paid MMORPG.

Okay for 2020; Won't Blow You Away

Wizard101 has been out since 2008. We've seen the evolution of 4K and even Ultra-HD since then. However, the team over at KingsIsle has taken good care of this game. The graphics have had tons of patches. The game itself is in full HD and has a variety of settings you can adjust based on your internet connection.

Something to note about the audio in Wizard101 is the voice-acting. You can expect all major quests to have full voice-acting, thanks to the paid subscription model. It adds a clever educational aspect for kids. They can see and hear the words as they play.

Overall, Wizard101 has aged surprisingly well in this department. Plenty of games struggle to keep up with the ever-changing graphics landscape. No, it's not going to win any awards in this department, but it holds its own with a 4/5, even after 12 years in the wild gaming world.

Quests, Fighting, Crafting, and Grinding Galore!

This MMORPG has a taste of everything. Level up and move through different zones, encountering unique characters. Slowly become a hero to the realm. You can gather materials, craft with them, and hang out with friends. Hatch and raise a pet to follow you through your adventures. There's even a designated PVP arena. It earns a 5/5 as top-notch MMO material.

Wizard101 features turn-based card combat, unlike many other MMOs. Unlock a variety of creatures and spells that come in handy, like ferocious frosty giants or fiery felines. Of course, you also wear armor and have weapons that make combat more complex. Leveling up will get you access to better gear.

A Solid Option for Kids and Families

Games come and go, but Wizard101 remains. Twelve years later and it still has a solid following. Frankly, it's a well-earned following. The number of things to do in Wizard101 is staggering, from an engaging main story to plenty of vibrant extras like pet-raising and item glamours.

Wizard101 is a great option for kids, families, or even if you're itching for a straight-forward, chill MMORPG.


Wizard101 is the award-winning MMORPG featuring a classic, engaging, and kid-friendly community.
