Not for everybody, but an awesome game and community!

akroto | Jan. 6, 2014 | Review of EVE Online 30 Day Time Card - PC

I'll start off this review by saying that EVE Online isn't for everybody. If you want an easy to learn MMO, this isn't it... But if you are willing to spend time to learn way the EVE universe works it's like crack. Your possibilities are endless, you can be a miner, manufacturer, pirate, bounty hunter, explorer, you name it and you can probably be it. EVE's reputation for being a cut-throat community is highly exaggerated, most people are helpful and polite (if you are too), but the occasional rotten egg is around. CCP (the creators of EVE Online) also host an awesome fanfest in Iceland each year were the players meet up with the developers for the latest info on the EVE Universe (EVE Online, DUST514 and soon(TM) EVE: Valkyrie) and generally discuss gaming and a lot of drinking. Great fun! Now for the product review: Sure there are cheaper ways to pay for the EVE Online subscription, but with GMG's vouchers it's around the same as CCP's monthly charge. BUT it contains the InterBus Catalyst, which sells for around 15 million ISK and the Cerebral Accelerator booster which can sell for around 200-250 million ISK, so you essentially earn around 250 million ISK (or around two-thirds of a PLEX) and 30 days play time for 20/15EUR. It's a great deal overall!
