In short: Free Realms is a cute time waster.
My kiddos and I have been playing since it launched for the PS3 on April 1st. The game only allows one character per account, so our ingame toon is Zambingo / Male / Human.
My favorite mini game is Soccer. Followed by Harvesting (which is like a Bejeweled puzzler). My son favors kart racing and combat quests. My daughter just likes walking around and looking at stuff.
Free Realms is a big download, the package in the PSN store is "small", but after install of that the game requires a 700+ MB update (which it automatically does once you start the game up). So depending on your innerwebs, sitting down to play this for the first time could take 40 minutes + before you're actually in the game.
