The thing I love about Wizard101 is the great community. KingsIsle, listens/pays attention to us. We have all these great fansites from podcasts to forums and more!

There's Twitter - the infamous #twizards,YouTube, Facebook, and the awesome Bloggers out there. Haha, why would you NOT want to be involved in that?

Just interacting online with your in-game friends-(doing other things as well ),and well, I'm glad to say - I've been doing this over 101 days(sarcasm)!

Special thanks to the lovely magical people at KingsIsle Entertainment - some of the best amusement yet!

I love wizard101 for the humor of the game Where else can you get a giant frog that throws up on all your enemies or create a house to show off all your amazing in game drops, pet and mounts.
Housing is one of my main loves to do in wizard101. You are able to come up with so many different types of themes and designs.

I think wizard101 is very cool and unique.You don't see a turn-based mmorpg like this very often.The battle system is most interesting thing in the game,card-turn-based mmorpg.I like the fact that when you do your spell you can actually summon and see the monster you have summoned.The other cool and unique thing about the game is that there are 7 schools with different type of monsters you can summon.The schools are Myth,Storm,Death,Fire,Ice,Balance and Life.From the other three schools Sun,Moon and Star my fave is Sun because of it's Gargantuan.That card can make my fire dragon do more I mean more damage :) The other thing I like about the game is the housing system.You can decorate it and make it really cool.From the houses my fave is the Life house...Idk why but its great :) And I have much and much fave things in the game but I wont have enough time to describe everything I like because its much,believe me :)

I love that it's a slower paced game, in many regards, than the majority of MMOs--so it requires more thought, rather than pure out and out reflexes.

I love all the darling humor peppered throughout the game - the Ice School tree named Kelvin, the ninja pigs, the little pet leprechaun that flings himself onto his wee pot of gold.

I love that when you walk across a rainbow bridge, your footsteps make music. And, when you walk into your castle, your pets run up to greet you.

I love how most of the player houses have little hidden paths or rooms. And, I love all of the animated furniture - like the bookcase with magic crystals that float out and explode occasionally. Or, the giggle baby carrots that break out the acrobatics when they're bored.

There's so much to love about Wizard101. The voice-acting is excellent. The spell animations are a joy to watch, the mounts are fun to zoom around on and, of course, there's all the cute pets!

The best thing is that it's an MMO that you can play with your whole family. But I also like the spell animations.

I love the breadth of the game, just the sheer amount of stuff to do. On top of that, everything is visually spectacular and charm oozes out of every pore of the game.

I love playing Wizard101 with my son. We only play for little bits at a time, but long enough for him to be inspired. I love watching as he goes and has his own adventures after having been spurred on by the fun and excitement in the game.

I have played many MMORPGs (WoW, Rift, LOTR) but Wizard101 has become my favorite for two reasons. The first is that I very much like the story. It is almost like a Fairy Tale that I am taking part in and each of the quests feeds into this overall story which I am enjoying very much. The second and more important thing is that my two daughters (8 and 4) are absolutely enthralled with this game and will sit with me for hours watching me play and ask questions about what I am doing. They even cheer and draw pictures of battles that I am fighting and I am very much enjoying the interaction we are sharing. They have never shown an interest in any other game that I have played but they are certainly enjoying this one. These two things combined with the other things I like about this game (housing, gardening, etc) ensure that I will be playing this one for a long while.

I really love that Wizard101 is a game I can play with my children, talk about strategy for defeating encounters, and work on money management skills, all in one game!
Collecting pets and items for housing is always a big hit, too.

My daughter actually plays it.

I love it because its a safe place for her to go without worry that she'll be harassed or other things happen.

Also teaches her a bit about money and how if you want that pretty castle, you need to save for it! ;)

The best part of Wizard 101 for me is the fact that I get to play with my little cousin. So much fun!!

I love Wizard 101 because they actually update it regularly with actual content and not just churning out cash items like some other kids free-to-play games.

The fact that it is such a nice family game is what I like best about Wizard 101.

There always seems to be such a dearth of family friendly titles in the MMO genre, it's nice to see a game that the whole family can enjoy.

So much you can do in it as well. It has something for just about everyone.

I like the Turn-Based battle system. More MMOs should do something similar.

The community is definitely one of the highlights of this game. It's a warm feeling seeing how much we've accomplished when putting our hoods, wands, and decks together in out-of-game projects and in-game battles.

I love how all the school have something cool about them and how you put 100% into making this the best game ever!
