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: I've played Eve for 7 years and its an addictive game. The actual gameplay really looks like you're in space. It is a dark looking game, even when you're docked up it is all greys and blacks. The ships are fantastic though as the effects are good and always people are working to make it better. Its a pc game. You pay monthly which is around £10 but for all you can do that's to much. It takes a bit of a good Internet connection to run.
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! ...
