It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
1) This game is incredibly CPU intensive. Unless you have a newer computer (mine's a 2008 HP model) then you will not be able to easily check email, webmail, etc., while you're child is playing.
2) There is a certain amount of hazard in allowing your child to access their Profile page at the site in that the character deletion button is right next to the Portrait button and only says "Delete" on it. Many children, and adults, accidentally deleted their characters thinking it was a Portrait deletion button.
Here are the hazards;
1) Any and all real world money purchased items are character bound, not account bound. This means that when the character is deleted so is every paid pet, paid fashion and any other paid-for items that you purchased for that character.
Currently there is no way to retrieve an accidentally deleted character - none, nada, don't even ask. Here's the Support link to that question;
There isn't even a cooldown time, which some parents may be used to from other games. The character is-just-gone.
2) Any and all codes used for that character will not work with a new character. Surprisingly unlike paid-for items, the freebie codes are account bound, not character bound. So that's it, you don't get the goodies anymore.
3) Your child, or you, will need to do all of the quests again for the new character. Which doesn't seem bad until you remember that there are annoying timed quests and in some cases these aren't optional, but required for character advancement. Just letting parent's in on the irritating "whine" factor that can be a result of a deletion.
Personally I may let a child play - for free. I would even perhaps consider a subscription, maybe. But I wouldn't spend any money further than that until they fix the instant character deletion problem.
It's a shame really. Sony is a big enough house to have handled this sort of trouble way beforehand. The game is great for younger children, ages 8-12, lots of puzzle and skill type of games that make you think a little. Even the fighting is watered down acceptably with "Knock-outs" instead of dying.
I wish they had more puzzles increasing in difficulty that were perhaps word type of things, but all in all it's not bad.
Just don't spend any money there.
