I thought i would right this, hopefully short, review just to let everyone know what a person who loves this game thinks about it.
A little info about me. Ive been playing eve since the first week of June 2003 and have played continously and consistently since then. I enjoy moslty games of the scifi space genre or war strategy games. This is my first mmorpg and only one so i wont be comparing with any other game. But i can say i havent played a single game as long as i have been playing eve.
As i am sure everyone would like to know i will start with the bad things first
Every patch that comes out for eve fixes bugs in games and usually make more ^X.
Content is somewhat lacking and is not released frequently enough.
There are people in game that like to just cause grief to other people, mostly by using exploits and then have to listen them flame about it on the forums.
Many things you work hard for and long for can get lost to bugs and the GM's wont replace for u cause they dont have a way to prove that you lossed it.
There was recently the implementation of a new very big patch, that has made it harder for people to play the game as a freelancer.
The new patch made it take longer to move around when your in empire space.
Six months after release there are still bugs and an hour downtime everyday.
Best way to gather the most money the quickest is to mine ore, which u will find very boring and will learn how to multitask(read the forums, play another comp game, play your xbox or PS2) by doing so.
The game should be considered a social game, by the fact that inorder to get anywhere you got to make friends or your experience with eve will just be crap. The best way to do this would be to start a corp and recuit people or join a corp.
The are alots of jobs or careers in game such as manfactuar, trader, pirate, miner, bounty hunter and the list goes on.
Takes time to actually get the good stuff. You cant get the best battleship within one day or a the first 2-3 weeks of playing the game.
Skills train automatically and while your not logged on, no need to go out and kill things to level.
The adrenline rush you get when you get into pvp for your first time and kill the target, and how pissed you get when u lose that battleship and have to work to get another one.
The new patch makes it so that frigates and crusiers are becoming more useful in pvp then everyone just fighting in battleships(especially after u have lossed yours ).
The thrill of hunting down that rat(pirate) if your a bounty hunter, or popping that indy to see what modules and ores u can steal as a pirate.
Creating your own megacorporation and obtaining all the blueprints to build whatever you like.
With the new patch the npc pirates are now a challenge to take out, where a single battleship wont be able to kill them all easily, without the risk of getting blown up.
Even with the new patch it is still possible to go from one end of the galaxy to the other and back again a couple times in a day.
The new patch has made it easier to catch corp theives and pirates, while it has also made it easier for pirates to catch unsuspecting industrials.
Using a third person internet voice server to make communication with gang buddies easy when hunting.
Several corps form together to create alliances that control regoins of the galaxies, and creat there own ingame content.
Believe me this is not the end of either list but i will try to add more when i get the chance. Trying to write this at the same time im playing the game . If anyone wants to buy eve and get a good view of what eve is really like u can contact me in game character name "Fedaykin Naib" and i will help u out or can send u in the direction of some guys that will help get you started. I really enjoy the game and plan on playing the game for alot longer so i might see some of u in there
