some people will hate the info,data on screen some will love more in depth player decisions and some will simply be to confused and not try the game... the game is hard, but after 3 days i was on my way to understanding all basics... its absolutely massive and anyone who has ever complained about short game-play has to try it... the choices, the self made story, ships, planets, etc i don't know how to recommend this game enough, simple as that... its 10+ years old.. would a game thats awe-full survivve that long... i dont think so. try the trial and find out.. :)

... then this is the MMO for you. I entered at quite a young age of 14, and it bored the hell out of me. I returned once I was a little older (20) and have enjoyed every second of it. It isn't an MMO as such, in fact it is a sandbox - so *BE WARNED* you will not have your hand held from start to finish. Once the tutorial missions are over (and i recommend doing them all) you will literally be thrown into an open world game. My advice is simple: Join a player corporation that accepts trial/new players and get stuck in. 14 days trial is not enough, and truthfully 21 day trials (through the buddy invites) are longer, but just as restrictive. I would suggest paying for a full month from the first day of your trial, so you gain 44 days of unrestricted access to the world (30 days full account + 14 days trial).
It is a brilliant game, with brilliant people, but it is ONLY really for those who have time and patience to see it through.
Quick sidenote: The game gets better the longer you play, and excuse the cliché, but its not about the destination (getting the best ships with the best fits etc) but its infact about the journey.

Amazing space MMO.eJonKou | June 9, 2013 | See all eJonKou's reviews »
Eve Online... What can I say? It's not everybodys cup of tea. But if you can get in to the game it becomes amazing. It's a huge online sandbox in space, you can join large alliance and take over solar systems and fight in huge 100 vs 100 battles. You can go a non-combat route and play the market, manufacture or mine.
There's so much to do in this game. I would suggest anyone to try out the free trial.
A space game done rightCooberstooge | May 6, 2013 | See all Cooberstooge's reviews »
Where do you turn when you finally clue in that nobody knows how to create decent all-encompassing space titles anymore? EVE Online, of course. Think of it as the X games, but accessible to new players - the learning curve is steep, but surmountable.
The game looks great, and beats any other similar title in that department. I cannot max it out on here, so it seems you need a fairly beefy rig to run it with all the "pretties" enabled. Even with the settings turned down somewhat, it looks fantastic. Ships especially are extremely well-detailed, and are on par with the CGI models shown in many of today's films.
Controls are solid, and not as all over the place as many of this type of game. Where you think a function should be on your keyboard, that's where it is - X3 Reunion messed with my head in that area, it was so confusing during station trading.
The soundtrack alone makes this worth the money, even if you do nothing else in the game. It's so...awe-inspiring, calming, and epic all at once. Others try to make theirs sound original, but EVE's takes the cake. Aside from the music, the game is pretty quiet, which suits the environs of a space game.
EVE Online is so worth your time, even if that time only amounts to the 14 days this pass allows. You will not be sorry for giving this one a try, there's a reason so many play and recommend it to others. WoW may be the big dog in online games, but this one's standing right behind it.
The zen in spaceNeohoodman | Feb. 28, 2013 | See all Neohoodman's reviews »
I usually dislike MMOs. They all follow too much of the same gameplay or template and it's never too much different from the other.
And then there's EVE. Combining my love for space sims and the fact the gameplay is alot different, I tried out the 14 day trial to see what the fuss is all about.
And the fuss is absolutely amazing. The game is so breathtakingly big and deep, an amazingly huge amount of skill books to learn and a living economy that works like real life.
The game is terribly slow at start, where all you can do is mine ore and sell it to get a starting budget. As soon as you start getting more money, you'll be wanting to join a corp, get a different ship, and the real fun begins. So many universes, so many planets, everything in real time. I have fond, fond memories of mining ore, relaxing, queueing skillbooks and listening to the chilling soundtrack.
If you're looking for a proper new MMO experience, EVE Online is the game to try.
