Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures - The ultimate online destination for a new generation of Star Wars fans
This action packed virtual world was created for fans of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated television series on Cartoon Network. Developed by Sony Online Entertainment and licensed by LucasArts, in conjunction with Lucasfilm Ltd., Clone Wars Adventures is an authentic and accessible Clone Wars experience for teens and families to play at home together.
Players can speed though space in a starfighter, take out waves of battle droids in Tower Defense or test their brains with challenging Droid Programming puzzles. Clone Wars also includes an array of Minigames and more. Compete with friends in this safe virtual world and show off your achievements in the Trophy Room. There are even parental controls that can be set for your younger teens or tweens.
Although Clone Wars is free, an upgraded monthly membership can be purchased for $5.99 to take the galactic action to the next level. Players can also purchase legendary Star Wars outfits, items and acessories through micro-transactions using virtual currency.
Free Realms is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMO) that will appeal to both boys and girls and younger teens. In this online mix of real-world and fantasy, you can do almost anything you want.
There is always something new to do in Free Realms. If you want adventure, you can search for lost treasure or duel other players. If adventure is not for you, you can teach your pet a trick, decorate your house or grow vegetables. There are also a wide variety of mini-games. With weekly and monthly updates, regular and special events and player-created parties and celebrations, players will never be bored.
Free Realms is one of the largest online games being played with over 14 million registered users, many of which are tweens. It is a very safe virtual world. Parents have fun playing also because of the engaging storyline. There is also a great deal of social interaction in Free Realm. Kids can join their friends in an adventure at any point in the game and cooperate or compete against other players. They can also grab a root beer at the inn and hang out or send links, share images and chat from their own customizable page. Upgraded membership is $4.99 for Free Realms.
For older teens and many parents who will want to relive their old comic book days, DC Universe Online, a MMO for PlayStation 3 or the PC, will be launching in early 2011.
Here is a way to give your teens and tweens another holiday gift without breaking the bank. You can register them for Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures and/or Free Realms for free, or even get them the upgraded membership for a year and still give them a very reasonably priced gift.
