Someone at massively is gonna have to review this; I can't bring myself to try it out. I just don't like the graphics or avatars in game.

Maybe it's just "too kid-centric" for me. Kinda off-putting at first glance (or in my case, first wince).

I tried it out for bubbles and squeaks, but it didn't really seem like an MMO.

It was just a bit weird, and seemed designed for 5 year-olds (no exaggeration, you paint coloring-book types scenes, etc.). But who on earth would encourage a very young child to play MMOs? I understand Jagex probably, strategically, wants to hook kids on MMO grinding early, move them on to Runescape when they hit 11 or 12, and then onto whatever next-gen-Java MMO(s) they're planning.

But I think someone who lets their kids grind MMOs at the target age Jagex is shooting for need to have child protective services called on them.
