Jan 25, 2013Far better game then many of these reviews suggest. One of the very few games where you can run start to run an extremely successful business just a few hours in.

Feb 25, 2012This game is an absolutely dreadful waste of time.
This game shares the grindfest gameplay model of most MMO`s complete with forced PVP against players many levels higher than you and with no chance of winning.When you lose a forced PVP fight against these higher level people you items and ships which takes days or even weeks of mind numbing grinding to replace. If you enjoy grinding for days or weeks just to able to pvp for 20 or 30 minetes then you`ll love this game.
Finding an opponent to PVP against will take several hours since the game population seems to consist of only hanger on`s who have been playing the game since beta and have invested so much money into the game that they can`t walk away from it.
PVP and PVE are slow and glitchy.
customer service is about what you would expect from any F2P MMO, it doesn`t exist.
Bugs and glitches are the norm rather than the exception.
end game content, there is none.
For all intents and purposes this is a dead game that should have been buried long ago.
The only reason the game is still up and running is because the few fanbois that still play it keep throwing money at it to keep the two servers running.
This is just another low budget independent cash cow game.… Expand
