    (caveat, this review is based on the beta) Good points - Visually Stunning, No PKing, place for peaceful players, developers were responsive to suggestions and polite. Sore Points - No coordination between Grouping & Guild membership; Chatting with other on space station players while on the space station is not possible, no joystick control of flight, can't bargain with vendors on (caveat, this review is based on the beta) Good points - Visually Stunning, No PKing, place for peaceful players, developers were responsive to suggestions and polite.

    This game no longer exists. Electronic Arts shut it down. One simply cannot play it anymore. In its day, a typical level-based PvE MMORPG. Heavy on the grind and shallow in gameplay (maximum spawn-camping), it did however have a good community. Featured different races/classes, ships, and NPC monsters. Yes, monsters in space! Just floating there awaiting battle. Monsters. In space. This game no longer exists. Electronic Arts shut it down. One simply cannot play it anymore. In its day, a typical level-based PvE MMORPG.

    Rarely is there a game like this that can accommodate beginners and satisfy experts. Earth and Beyond is one of those rare beasts.
  2. A feast for the eyes and mind, Earth & Beyond is both an excellent game and a perfect example of what an MMORPG should be.

    An extremely refreshing space exploration take on the massively multiplayer genre. [Holiday 2002, p.92]
