Roblox is a free to play online game with a focus on building and user generated content. In Roblox you can focus on creating or enter the thousands of worlds created by other players. Roblox has been online since 2005 and features a mostly teenager demographic with popular game modes such as battle royale, first person shooters, puzzles, mini games, role playing, survival games and tycoon games.

Roblox is a huge MMO experience split between the various worlds that have been designed by other players and the social features of the website that allow players to easily keep tabs on each other. In the game there is room for all sorts of players from those that want to be social to the players that spend all their time building new worlds. In Roblox players are free to create anything with blocks and can even script objects using the Lua programming language which is extremely easy to use.

Using these available tools the users of Roblox have created all sorts of worlds where you can fight, race, destroy, explore and much more. With thousands upon thousands of these game worlds there is no shortage of different experiences waiting for you in the Roblox universe.

You’ll connect to these Roblox worlds with your customisable avatar that you can customise with a large number of bodies, heads, clothing and hats to give you your own Roblox personality. On top of customisation Roblox also has a high focus on being social and interacting with others. Players are able to set up their own Roblox profile, add friends and participate in community groups to find people with similar interests.

While you can get plenty of fun out of your Roblox for free the game does offer additional content through the premium currency of Robux and paid memberships. While these are handy to have there is very little pressure to ever buy these with nothing stopping free players from enjoying the same amount of content.

With thousands of different game worlds and the option to create your own there really is never a dull moment in Roblox.

Summary:

  • Available online and free to play.
  • Create whatever you want.
  • Scripting objects opens up a world of possibilities.
  • Great community atmosphere.
  • Regular events and holiday themed celebrations keep the game fresh.

  6. It’s fun and you can learn how to program some. I don’t really recommend letting your kid play alone depending on their maturity, though

  10. This is an amazing sandbox game. Everything that you will play on it will be user created, the whole game is based on building a community of developers and users that create and play awesome games together.

  12. I play ROBLOX all the time! Me and my two sisters are obsessed, we could play it 24/7 (we already do). We always get in trouble for not listening to our parents when we are playing it, they have to take the electronics away from us. We are still hooked even though we get in so much trouble! GO ROBLOX! BTW, your right it should have a higher rating. like atleast a 9.0. Great Game, even though it’s not exactly like minecraft if you were looking for a game like minecraft, it’s still great. Sorry for talking too much, I talk a lot! well toodles yepperdoodles! So ya! Bye

  14. I do not recommend Roblox, To many kiddos at the ages of 6-12 doing “Online dating”. (Oh my!) From my experience if you do not buy something on the game people will call you “Noob” But that is normal for all games. Unless you are playing with a 4 year old. If you are 13 or older you will probably find the kiddos funny. XD
    It is your choice to play it or not, So I guess have fun.
    Rating- Roblox – 5/10

    • Exactly, alot of people online date, even when i was a noob, i joined in 2013, i even got banned for a week for cussing out stuff in 2013. now look at me. i dont get reported anymore. just noobs report me. and alot of people dont know how to be mature in ROBLOX, i just think alot of people are robots. all the ODering needs to stop. alot of kids at the age of 7 play ROBLOX, im not one of them. all the ODering just dropped my rating to a 6/10
