  1. Well,the graphics look different which means hopefully the game has had an over-haul,if it has not changed,IMVU may very well be on of the worst serious mmo’s I have EVER played,instead of walking you have ”points” that you go to,the community is horrible,players often kick you out of their own areas (which often have snobby rules like ”no strait players,no goths,no preppies,no jocks,etc.) and sometimes might be kicked out just for being new,finding a player not wanting to virtual date or cyber bully is a difficult action in itself.All rooms and items are user-generated which though it sounds good can be a pain as you have no idea what you are getting and can’t delete it,overall imvu is a glorified chat room and a bad one at that!

    1. its that bad

    2. Honestly “the worst MMO” << u do realise this is a 3D chat and not a GAME so inform urself better before you make this kind of dumb comments. :) regards

  2. omg, the file size is 75 kb -.- they have to put more atention and put the game size, and no the download file… well after the coments of the other people, i dont gonna download this

  3. Imvu is not good, you can often get easily banned, what they called disabled, many have complained of being on there some years, having spent thousands of dollars and suddenly one day they can not access their account.
    Another worrying thing is the amount of accounts that get hacked, so a lot of them claim on the forums. If you complain to much you get banned and later disabled.
    Finally you have no realy safety on there, so despite the minimum age being of 13, anyone young can get access to the site. There is often naked graphic porn images too, which makes it very unsettling given the fact there are young teens on the site. IMVU removes the naked images of men, but often avoids and leaves those of the women, for whatever reason, who knows.
    If I had to rate the site over all, give it 1 out of 10, better ringing them for someone decent to answer you, but then having said that, just given the run around as you are told to take out a ticket on the site, thus one can wait days or weeks, if they respond to you at all.
    As for the offers to get credits, most are a con, surveys all about getting your details off you, to bug you constantly, a serious privacy risk, especially for kids, which it appeals a lot to. And not only that, when you gone through them, often then say sorry at this time not qualified etc. We then have those free things one downloads, and these are often full of spyware or virus.
    For a company making so called millions of dollars now, to not be accountable to even paying customers is truly shocking to say the least.

    1. AGREE!!!!!! >:(

    2. I agree.
      When you first set foot onto IMVU’s website, you can tell right away they’re money-hungry. Second Life offers just about everything IMVU does for free, and more(movement, for one). Not only is IMVU extremely pay-to-do anything, but even if you did pour money into it, it’s extremely limiting.
      Most of the people I have seen/met in it type like kids who are desperate for a boyfriend/girlfriend. They sound like myself when I was 10 years old and first discovered the internet.

      Thinking about starting a business making clothes? Don’t even bother, you have to pay to even create something, and IMVU gets all of your profit. You’re much better off having that business in Second Life, where people give you things free, you keep/convert to USD what profits you make, and uploading stuff costs almost nothing in comparison.

      I once tried to ask a question regarding selling something in IMVU on their forums(asked whether it’s worth what you pay for a subscription), and they deleted my post without any warning or notifying me what I did wrong. I didn’t post anything against their forum rules.
      Later, I asked my friend who used to create for IMVU, and she told me all about how they pretty much steal your profits for themselves, all while making you pay the subscription and upload costs.

      Oh, and did I mention that the first account I made, which I paid for, was deleted without a reason?

  4. this game rules!!! im on it day and night!

    1. dude what is the real one the one i n the video and im F’ed i keep going to a diferent one :|

  5. i think it’s a fun game, but it’s a little depressing

    1. Imvu is not a game it is a 3d chat filled with much older people pretending to be younger AKA “pedophiles” the software also corrupted the operating system twice the second time with in two months of wiping the computer. (i would like to say i am a qualified IT technician and know what i am doing)

      1. Thats kinda harsh to say every single individual on there is a pedophile. i used IMVU back in the day to stay in contact with my wife when i was contracting and training, who is actually older than me, she uses this 3D chat program as a item dev, and enjoys just making items for people, a lot of rooms also have a strict policy on age verification and do not tolerate childishness, but there are sadly more rooms on there that are indeed full of perverts but not every single person is a chester.

  6. From what i’ve heard this game is not good. To make it worse i can’t even get on! Thisgame rips you off! Unless you have a really good computer you might be able to get on…. so anyway i’ll have to look for other games to play on. I haven’t played virtual games in a long time! WHY!!! WHY THE HECK DID THIS HAPPEN TO MEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I agree this game sucks! If you can’t even get on what is the point of making youtube videos! i try to get on but it won’t let me! It also shows inapropriate things and it does it too. Young viewers, thinking their old enough, will want to get on the site more. Allowing them to view negative stuff. But there are some teens who could get easily influenced over this. And it’s not fair to the people who can’t play! I am a Crtic viwer and mostly everything i say is TRUE. But there are some good things about this game. Like if you don’t have a real date in real life… get one one here! That is if you can get on! I fairly like the game but i hate it mostly. I’ve heard people saying you have to pay for this. This is free. But you don’t know when a letter in the mail could come saying you owe $15. I am Crtic Viwer… PEACE! :)

    1. if you were a critic viewer then you would actually spell the word viewer right . And its completely free . You choose to pay for credits . Actually play before you say something …

      1. I know right!

  8. I was on and off this game. Yes this game does have issues, but the friends you make on this game makes it worthwhile sometimes. If you want to play you will have to deal with perverts who want to cyber/webcam with you, it gets really annoying and yes people will most likey either kick you or ignore you for being new. This game forces you to either buy creds (I used resellers which is way cheaper and better) or do offers that do even work sometimes after you have done them or just gives you a virus from the downloads (sometimes they actually do work). I have played this game since 05 and I got disabled once for no reason and they except me to pay them 75$ to get my acc back after spending more then that for it (crazy right?). I would avoid spending much or at all on this game, cause you might one day end up wither hacked or banned/disabled for no reason really like for example, a friend of mine who is 12 was able to play for 6 months and even spent money on the game, but she was disabled because she is 12 and now she had to make a new acc and lie about her age to get on. Yes, it is very easy for young teens to play and yes there are images that inappropriate like, when I bought a room there was an image of a man and a women actually having sex on the wall and the room was for gerenal :/. If you want to play, I would advise you to try and play for free.

  9. okay so i am a (RP)/role playing person and i found this game very fun and also enjoyed makeing items the user made items means every one makes good items at cheap prices so people will buy from them mybe i am weird but i found it very eazy to find a room that had some fun people to talk to but it rilly is a glorfied chat room if you cant role play or are shy around other people then this is jest not the game for you i have been playing seens 2005 i have eazly put 100$ in the game yes i know… but i have to say this is a fun game to play if you like role playing or jest messing around and chating but its not an mmo its a chat game so if you want to be a super strong know it all and own a million credits this is not the game for you but if you want to hang out and chat mymbe even role play i rilly think you should try it out any one need help with credits pm me ill see what i can do.^.- <3

  10. I have been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more useful than ever before.

  11. The Game Is Nothing Like The Video

  12. Not really fun unless you have alot of friends whom you which to chat with from afar. Otherwise, avoid this “game”

  13. I have had my acount for awhile now. I just started going back on imvu. I have been reading comments about the teens and underage on imvu. When going into rooms the owner of the room makes up the age that is alowed in. If your to young you can’t get in. You can’t view things if your not of age. Now if ya lie and put in false info. there is nothing other people can do about that. Parents should know what there kids are doing. I injoy the game and it is for interainment people it’s not real life. It can’t be kinda hard learning all the new things and meeting people. After awhile people see you coming back and coming on and they open up to ya.

  14. i like art and crafting only

  15. You could certainly see your expertise within the work you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.

  16. lol this game rools! ive played it since i was 12 an d im 17 now you just have to get to know the game before judging it and it s more like a mode” game

  17. -_- Noobs!! I have been using IMVU for 4 years and its one of the best Virtual worlds out there. Oh and the file you download is 75kb when you install the game its more than 40 MB, Its grapich are much better than the pictures, you will just have to buy better skins and face etc. You can buy almost everything and you can do anything on IMVU and I mean anything lol. and imvu doesn’t need a high speed internet like second life. Spitfire out

  18. nothing like the video it way more funnier and sexier im horny

  19. Does imvu give you virus?? cause i wanna download it but im not sure if it’s safe.

  20. no it dosnt

  21. hello everyboody

  22. hi random person :p

  23. I have been playing IMVU off and on since 2009. I can give you all my personal opinion of it. It was kind of a cool site to join at first. They provide you with basic room and a handful selection of avatars to choose from to start of with that you will want to improve or upgrade immediately once you see how other users have tailored their avi’s style and appearance to their liking and because if you don’t upgrade your avi looks you will run into a chat room with other IMVU members who may boot you from their room based on how your avi look, if you look new (noobish) and if you have the Guest_ attached to your name so you’re forced to buy credits. If you’re real to life rp like I am, you will come across many restrictions on IMVU unlike Secondlife.

  24. I had played this game a while back, and it wasn’t the best. Actually, it was one of the reasons I could never get on the computer cause it screwed up my computer, and almost my mother’s.

    I had actually played it cause people on DeviantART made it look fun, so did my cousin, with making all of these avatars and such, but when I started to play it, it bored me to death, so I dropped it.

    So, a big thumbs down to this game. >.>;;;

  25. Looking at this – as in overall, the graphics, the video, the comments – I find that it looks like a slut blackhole chatroom sucking in twenty year olds or twelve year olds. Now, I know this isn’t a very “nice” thing to say, so, of course, I refer to the comments. And another problem hits me. Everybody who is hating on it to the deepest depths of hell seem like they know how to use grammar and sense, and everyone who’s rating it eleven out of ten stars seem “liek thay dosnt no how 2 speek”. Could someone, a neutral someone please, above the first grade, tell me what they think? I’m truly bored out of my mind, I don’t care what type of MMO this is, just give me your opinion; I’ll find a way to troll to the top or something nevertheless.

  26. Personally, I’ve enjoyed IMVU to the fullest.
    But I have to agree with a lot of the downfalls other people have mentioned. The Age Restrictions are 13+ but it possible for anyone of any age to join.
    For Example, I’ve been playing IMVU on and off since late 2009, and I just turned 14 this year.
    However, it’s also a great way to meet new people. I admit, at first it seemed overly sexually.
    Like sex was the only topic allowed, and it annoyed me to a point where I would stop playing from groups of times. After awhile I would get back on, and in that time I realized something, with my observation skills.
    It’s simply really. If someone 17 creates a chatroom, and they visit it and are open about their age, 17 year olds and ages around 17 will be more likely to join that chatroom.
    Same as friends. If you’re open about what you find interesting, and and what you find annoying and at some points down right repulsive, you’re more likely to find people that agree with you.
    IMVU is a virtual world, and like our reality, we have stupid people. It’s idiotic to expect to not have them. You can’t change them, but if you take the time to enjoy the game instead of judging the people you’d have an amazing time. I’m not going to bash relationships that have stared from IMVU.
    I don’t agree with people that claim to be in love after knowing someone for a week or two.
    But there are plenty of relationships that have conducted genuine and long lasting relationships through IMVU.
    Friendships included.
    So in my opinion, your IMVU experience will be whatever you choose for it to be.
    If you expect it to be horrible, then I assume it will.
    However if you go with your eyes AND mind open, you’ll find a wonderful opportunity to experience a lot of different things.

  27. terrible, just a very poorly made rip-off of second life.

  28. I downloaded this; it turned out to be HORRIBLE. Sexual content. Swearing. Definitely a grown-up dating game. Super dirty.

    1. I’ve been playing IMVU for a year now. Of course at first it seems boring and it may or may not download correct. It did for me anyways. There’s always a risk factor when you play online games. I made friends the first few days on it and everyone starts off as a “noob” so did I. But after a few months, i turned out to be with a “clique” you could call it. And many many friends, if your a cool person, then i believe people will want to get to know you. Yes at times you will enter a room and the owner will boot you out, they are “shallow” or whatever and i have done it many times before as well. It’s just how the game is. I have used up more then 100$ on this game and i do not regret it at all. I enjoy making the outfits and buying things. It used to be much more easier to gain credits on this game and now it’s only available when doing offers, which I HATE but the relationships you make on IMVU last forever. And with the pervert topic, there are lots of those “perverts” in the game, you just have to be careful not to meet them and if you do then to push them off you. I just laugh at them. It is an online game and if something happens to you don’t blame it on the game itself but the people that use it for stupid reasons. All in all, i give it 9/10 stars. :)

    2. Actually,you can be as young as 12 to play the game.True,there is swearing and sexual content.

  29. Cool game. Only thing I will complain about are the offers to getting IMVU credits. You either have to take some survey or buy them. They should make a game within IMVU where you can win credits.

  30. I tried Second Life some time ago, it was very confusing and I quit. IMVU is far superior because it is easy to comprehend, the UI and menus were easy to navigate, I will say the graphics and engine is dated it’s in what looks like 1st gen 3D and you can’t move your character around freely you have to click where you want your avatar to go and it appears there. There are literally a TON of people playing IMVU at all times, finding people to talk to is effortless.

    In Second Life the menus and UI are a mess, IMVU has simplified it and it’s simply easier to play IMVU. Also the download is significantly smaller than SL’s.

    1. I tried SL also and lied about my age(I’m 9).It was okay at first then made my computer slow.I saw something about breasts.I decided to immediately uninstall it.No doubt IMVU is way better than that junk.

  31. IMVU has changed it’s look by so much, the avatars are 100% different now, they look more realistic and there is a never ending supply of clothing. There are rooms being created everyday. I know this, I am a VIP, I have the wedding package on it(me and my fiancee met on IMVU), I am the Official EdwardCullen on the site and I have lots of friends, many I speak to in rl. People complain about bad language and such, well that will happen on any online social game, it depends on the rooms you enter cause some rooms are +18. People boot noobs from rooms as they are made for friends only. You need to read descriptions on rooms, so it is your own fault if you don’t take the warnings. IMVU credits, you can either buy them yourself ($5 for 5000 credits) or you can wait for sales which you could get 5000 credits for $3 which if you buy 50,000 credits at a sale then you can get that amount for $22 which is a really good deal considering items in the shop cost around 600 credits for a realistic looking jacket.
    I love imvu (I’m on it right now) and I will never trade it for anything

  32. The pictures and video above are so outdated! Only new people look like that till they upgrade themselves with new “skins”, clothes and such. IMVU is easy to use. I have never had a computer problem caused by it, but at times their upgrades (which are almost daily) don’t work well and you have to downgrade. Easy enough to do though. Parents need to watch what their underage children are doing online, it is their responsibility not mine.When my kids were young the computer sat in the living room where I could spy anytime I wanted to. IMVU is what you make it. You want sex you got it. You want a nice ballroom to dance in, you got it. Mansions, amusement park rides, caves, Elves, anything goes. Meet the right people and you can have a blast. Is there drama and creeps?….gawds yes, those people are in abundance in the world and of course are online too. Am a 61 yr old female that gets silly with friends, creates and just has fun.

  33. I made an account about a few months back, I’m currently a “Guest” player.

    IMVU is a relatively fun dress up game, and a nice website to meet people from all over the globe.

    Most of other players are sometimes heavenly judgmental about how much in game currency you have and are, per se trollers and undercover bullies.

    If you don’t do well with rude players I suggest finding another social game.

    Overall I give IMVU 4 out of 5 Lumps.

  34. I LIKE THE KISSING STYLES!!!

  35. no imvu is good all those where noobs and the graphics are nice add me radXxemoskittlezXx and add my friend st0n3edcold
