Free Realms is a browser based game. However, there is quite a big difference between Free Realms and other browser based game. To start with, Free Realms launches in his own new window. The game is also extremely complex with loads of professions and quests. Player will found himself inside a vast tri-dimensional world in which he can do almost anything.
The basic game is totally free; however there are some payment options for additional in-game currency, unique items and to unlock some special professions. The fee is 5$/month and unlocks loads of features. Without them, the gaming experience is not that special and if you want to focus and progress in Free Realms it is indicated to pay that fee.
First you need to create a new character and choose a profession. After that, you can
do whatever you like inside the Free Realms world. You can start an event, you can walk around, you can play mini games or you can do quests. Most of the actions inside Free Realms reward you with in-game currency that can be used later one to purchase different items or even a pet. The game itself is designed for kids so it is safe for them to play it. Most of the people around are quite friendly and that will help in creating a friendly gaming experience. The bad guys are represented by computer-generated evil postman and hooligans. Fighting with them will give you experience points and gold coins.
In Free Realms you can choose from two races: humans and pixies and creating and customizing your character can be done really fast and easy. There are 15 available jobs in Free Realms and if you focus on one single job it is possible to level it in a few hours. However, Free Realms is not just about grinding experience and gold coins, is about variety and the freedom to do almost whatever you like. As players will advance in level, they will learn new skills that can be assigned to hot keys for easier usage. Also, the game doesn't have any kind of death penalty; in fact, you can't die in Free Realms. If you lose a duel, you get knockout.
From graphical point of view the game looks really nice with beautiful colors and character models. Sound is also good and helps in creating a positive mood for the player. Free Realms is not a game where players must invest hours and hours of game play. This is a game for kids and casual players that want to have some fun.
