  1. It's a gaming experience like no other... A brilliant content-heavy update for an already excellent game. [Feb 2005, p.88]

    A visually stunning spacefaring game that is still radically different from mainstream fantasy games. Even after Exodus it is still a bit lacking content-wise, but getting steadily closer to being a massively multiplayer Elite. Definitely an acquired taste, though. [July 05]

    For all its style in terms of graphics, backstory, and iterface, EVE remains a complex and slow-paced game that will prove anathema to anyone currently hooked on the simpler, more immediate delights of, say, "World of Warcraft." [March 2005, p.71]

    Incredibly vast game with layer upon layer of complexity. Has the potential to become an all consuming passion, and this presents the only Incredibly vast game with layer upon layer of complexity. Has the potential to become an all consuming passion, and this presents the only real drawback - to get the most out of the game it has to be. As a single player not heavily involved in a corporation you'll find yourself seriously handicapped as you either get mugged by groups of maurading pirates or take an age to get yourself enough credits to buy the powerful upgrades your ship needs to progress. Pick up and play gaming it ain't, but it ticks all the boxes for an immersive and truley massive MMORG. Full Review »

    Perhaps one of the most complex online games at the moment, EVE Online sports spectacular graphics, thrilling sounds, and an immersive story. Perhaps one of the most complex online games at the moment, EVE Online sports spectacular graphics, thrilling sounds, and an immersive story. In fact, the only thing I feel it's lacking is a greater involvement with the storyline. If you enjoy games in a galactic setting, or games where there are next to no limitations to what you can do, EVE is something worth trying. Full Review »
