this is going to be short and sweet. EVE online is bad. first and foremost. you have to pay to play. i have always been against this formula of game since first hearing of WoW. and my opinion hasnt changed. secondly, i used a trail account of this game which was 14 days long and i can tell you, if you wanted to get anywhere in this game you'll need to pay for a year just to get up the money for a decent ship (cruiser). i was stuck in a constant limbo of buying the ship i needed (a minmitar frigate called scout) for mining runs and small time NPC farming, getting killed too easily but that one NPC that always seemed to turn up as i hit the 1 million isk mark and having to spend 400,000 isk just to kit it out again and then reapeating. then after using up 8 of my 14 days i finally had enough money to buy a cruiser. finally, a sense of achievement. then it was taken away from me when my corp decided that a 14 day newcomer didnt need a cruiser and pod killed me and stole my equipment. at that point i simply quit the game and de-installed it. why play a game which takes sooo long to gain up enough money to get anywhere? missions start out easy the the impossible mission comes around which cant even be completed by a destroyer (my corp tryed to help me out but three ships couldnt do a lvl 1 task) my opinion is that if you liked WoW and enjoy burning wads of money for the sheer hell of it and like wasting months of your life which could be spent elsewhere (like on your personal hygiene) then go ahead and enjoy yourself. anyone with a brain, either WoW or stick to your BF2 and COD4.
I have no idea why they gave this game a fair rating, other than that it's possible they may be catering to a younger, less mature, more impatient, more immediate gratification, less thinking and more spoonfeeding, audie... Read Full Review
