Jan 25, 2012By far a pretty horrible MMO to play. PVE and PVP content is pretty much click a few buttons and watch the screen for 30 minutes. During missions (this is no joke) I would leave my computer for 15 minutes and come back to clear a "room" with my drones (npc missions sites are comprised of rooms). This is the extent of player interaction playing EVE.
PVP is nothing more than sitting around and gate camping with blob fights (again click 3 buttons to fight).
I did like where they were going with the Captain Quarters, however it is nothing more than a holding cell at the moment.… Expand
Mar 8, 2012Sure, EvE online may seem fun because of it's MASSIVE scale and freedom, but trust me, that's what makes the game bad.
First off, let's start with the PvP.
One of the worst parts of the game.
Like several reviews before, the PVP is nothing but clicking buttons and watching as your ship's shields get slowly taken down.
The only challenge in here is getting up in the middle of the fight to go use the restroom. Yes, I've used the restroom twice while I was in the middle of a fight in EvE online once. True story. It only takes 3 clicks to shoot at somebody, and your ship will handle the rest. You aren't really playing, you're just gambling months worth of ISK (in-game money) to see who will win. And, most of the time, the loser whines like hell. Second, there's the mining.
Don't get me started. People really sit down and wait for hours on end while their ship shoots asteroids. In the end, you'll make a fortune, but who would do it? Gaming is supposed to be fun, CCP. That doesn't seem fun at all.
It's the same thing as PVP except you're taking on hordes of NPCs that just circle around you while shooting at you repeatedly.
If you lose in PVE, people won't hesitate to point and laugh at you.
The next subject I'll be covering is the community.
God knows where these people's hope in life have gone.
Most of the people in the game flip out when you bring up other games, preferably FPS games, and don't stop flipping out until you bring EvE back into the subject. Then, they'll furiously bombard you with how EvE is too hard for kids unlike FPS's and it weeds out noobs more then any other game.
They don't notice that that's a bad thing, not a good thing.
In a nutshell, the community in EvE isn't the worst part, but it's pretty bad for a "game".
And to top off my rant, let's talk about the rest of EvE's flaws.
The sheer size of EvE online also applies to it's progression.
Out of all the game's I've played, or, seen in my life, EvE online is the most horrible in this subject.
If you were going to want to train all the skills in the game, you'd need to wait several years.
WAIT several years. Not play the game, but have those skills train while you aren't even playing for years at a time.
And, most of the time, it's all just to get a single ship that you'll lose the second you enter 0.0 space.
I know you have to be patient to play EvE online, but that's just flipping ridiculous. Who would wait several years just to get a virtual item? Or worse, spend 20 bucks a month to make sure you get it?
Let's not forget the economy.
The economy is supported by your skills, except it'll take you forever to understand the twists and turns of it.
In a nutshell,
if you are a person who likes to PLAY games and not stare at a spaceship shooting asteroids for countless hours,
do not waste your time and money on EvE online.… Expand
