Summary: Amazon just did a promotion for the Starter pack and I snagged it. The month of game time plus extras are worth the regular price, but now I get to explore the world of EVE unhindered by trial restrictions. Highly recommend a starter pack to someone who was playing a trial like myself.
Summary: The download and activation code worked perfectly for me. I was using Windows 7 if that helps. This starter kit gives you a huge bump, I feel like I have been playing the game for months. I ran all the intro tutorials and have started making enough money off of mining to buy and outfit my first destroyer. This is a very cool game and this starter kit gives you a huge boost to help catch up with veteran players!
Summary: 292 hours played so far...since June I picked this up through Amazon because it was on sale....however, i like to have time tracked through Steam to show my friends how crazy I am. So after I installed this version and setup my account, I downloaded the 'Demo' through Steam and I log in with my good credentials on the Steam Demo. However, I do not get the 'trading cards' through Steam. I think the next time it is $5 on Steam I will upgrade it through there for that.
Summary: This starter pack gives you a great low cost way to get into this game, and some "head start" gear to get you moving. Suggest you start your first character as a Caldari to take full advantage of the ships provided.
Summary: This game is great. There are so many things to do. You can do anything from being a space pirate to starting a corporation. It takes some getting use to but once you have the hang of it then you can't stop playing.
Excerpt: "...cool professions to pursue in Eve -- miner, fighter pilot, explorer, etc. All are fun. So, if you want a more intellectually stimulating MMORPG -- I would highly recommend Eve for you! ...
