Second Life review
Second Life is a virtual world/game that is free to play. It was created by Linden Labs and is the most successful virtual world ever made. It is similar to World of Warcraft. You can have your own avatar, build houses, go shopping, go to work, participate in events, and many other things.
Second Life gameplay is very different from most MMO games. It is different from the usual point-and-click gameplay in that you can do most actions on your own by leaning and clicking, but that will usually be very inefficient and time-consuming. It is different from your typical MMORPGs in that it is almost entirely sandbox-based, with very few quest lines and instances, and is very much a game based on creating your own fun. It is also different from other sandbox games in that it is not a virtual world, but rather a virtual playground. This game is not about how much land you own, how impressive your house is, or how many friends you have. It is about creativity and about having fun, and that is what makes it so special.
Second Life graphics are a little bit cartoonish but mostly realistic. This game is a little bit old, so it has quite good graphics for the time it was created. The recent games have far superior graphics, but Second Life graphics are still pretty good.
Second Life replayability is a common topic of discussion among Second Life residents. One of the most common observations that I hear from SLers is "there is nothing new in SL anymore". This is typically said by people who have been in the game for several years and are looking for the next "big" thing, whether this is a new type of game or a new type of experience.
I think there is a lot of truth to this sentiment. I have been in Second Life for almost seven years, and I have to admit I am getting a bit bored with it. I have stayed because there is still a lot to do in the game, and I enjoy interacting with my friends. But I do admit that I am looking for a "new" experience, and I am not sure what that is or if it will happen.
