A good game, you just need too much free time to enjoy it.

Excerpt: "Well Eve Online is fairly well known, you may have heard of it described as either an intense large scale fleet based space combat simulator, or a boring slow-paced trading simulator. To be honest its a bit of both, sure there is some good PvP and sometimes PvE action, and the game is also extremely deep, which is rare for an MMO. However the game does suffer, possibly because it is deep, the game takes an extremely long time to achieve anything ...
Pros: Great graphics, has in - depth gameplay, has many opportunities for team - work .
Cons: Takes an age to do anything, subscription cost is far too high .
Summary: The MMORPG is a genre that, for want of a better word, is absolutely flooded with titles, few of which are actually any good. For every World of Warcraft, there are a dozen shameless cash-ins, but Eve Online is one of the rare ones that's both original and extremely well executed. Just like any other game of the genre, you start by creating a character and then taking them into an adventurous world.
Summary: EVE is aimed at the mature gamer and bends over backwards for them. You earn skills in real time and need only log on to talk with your friends or change which skill you are learning. EVE is designed to make team-work absolutely essential and takes this to an epic proportion. The basic premise is that you fly a ship and do whatever you want with it, EVE offers limited amounts of content (something to shoot or something to mine) but generally points you toward forming...
Pros: Unbelievable graphics, great sci-fi feel with enormous spaceships, aimed at people with limited time
Cons: Not much point in playing alone, you are never safe from other players attacking you
Summary: Eve Online-the secong genesis is a Massive online multiplayer game which boasts to have the largest single server the world has ever seen, holding close to 40,000 players. Therefore the creators have created a immense world in order to hold all of these players. This i can say, they have done with great detail. So what is the game about? EVE takes is meant to take place in a cluster of stars far from mankind's original habitat, planet Earth.
Pros: A trully different world. Great graphics. Frequently updated. Very realistic
Cons: VERY time consuming to get the full benefits. Very realistic (yes this is also bad)
Excerpt: "...detailed review of the game Eve Online and my experience playing it, be prepared for a long read. After playing this game for 6 months I am still nowhere near the level some people are and they, after 4 years, have not got everything in the game. Basically this is an ongoing game that cannot be completed. It has been estimated that if you want to be the best at everything in the game it would take 20years in real time. Eve is an MMOG, Massive Multiplayer ...
Pros: so many
Cons: sometimes laggy in popular areas, monthly cost a bit high
Excerpt: "...honest, i was soooo wrong. EvE Online is one of those most amazing games i have ever played. They took space and they presented it to us on a completely new and different level. The basic storyline is: mankind used up almost all of the Earth's resources, and had started colonizing the rest of the Milky Way to sustain itself. Eventually, there was no more room left in the galaxy, and what does man do? They start fighting. However, one day, a natural ...
Pros: Amazing sounds, Beautiful graphics, New gameplay, interesting aspects
Cons: Long tutorials, slightly confusing, alot to learn
Excerpt: "...online games to date but eve online is something new and I feel it will grow into a lot more than its sum. The basic control interface for the game is easy enough to understand and there is a tutorial when you first start playing the game which is very helpful in getting a basic feel for the controls and a few basic missions under your belt as well as some spending money. I would recommend that you take the time to do the tutorial. After ...
Summary: I have played Ultima Online, Everquest, and Anarchy Online. For my tastes, this bests all three because of it's rewarding team (corporation) based gameplay. It is also pleasing that everything so player driven and the next free expansion or patch, known as "shiva", looks to make the game so much better. As a late adopter of the game. The one problem I encountered, wasn't that it was hard to catch up to those who had played since the beginning, but rather it was too easy.

8 June 2004
Summary: Eve Online is known as a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game), there are many out there but Eve certainly stands out as one of the vastest online worlds around. The Eve universe consists of thousands of different systems, each with their own attributes and items of interest, whether it?s a remote asteroid belt or an abandoned mining colony. They are designed through a security rating program, systems rated as 1.0 are known as ?Empire Space?
Pros: Vast Gigantic universe to explore, Can be very rewarding once you reach a high level, Ability to own many ships and run your own corporation to earn money
Cons: $12 a month subscription can make game less rewarding, Very unwelcoming to new comers, Can take a very long time to get to a powerful stage
