EVE Online: Revelations II Official Movie 1
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 13 out of 22
  2. Negative: 3 out of 22
  1. A robust tutorial. Classless character builds. Overwhelmingly open-ended gameplay. Ship designs you’ll need to wear a bib for. And a breed of PvP that’ll make adrenaline junkies sign up for rehab. Sci-fi worshipers: This is your Mecca.
  2. You could play this game for years before you really started to feel like you might have seen everything it had to offer. If you can just get past the rough beginning, the difficulty, and the steep learning curve, Eve Online is the biggest game you could possibly hope to play.
  3. Despite its flaws though, EVE is deeply, deeply addictive.
  4. You must have patience and be excited about non-structured gameplay in order for it to be worth the price of admission. Action hungry thrill-mongers will do themselves a favor by steering clear of this one.
  5. EVE offers little in the way of instant gratification, and progress in the game is slow and often unnoticeable.

    This stunning mood is crushed by an interface that has all the charm and convenience of a TPS report. [Sept 2003, p.95]

Huge learning curve, it takes some time to figure out the basics. This is not a game that you can get a lvl 90 in a few months, patience is required.

    Great game!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the best "game" in the world. As ever, a reader should discard any review of a multiplayer game where the reviewer has failed to play the game with other people. Lo and behold, most of the negative reviews on this game are from people who start out saying "I spent a day figuring this game out" or "I couldn't get into it" or "who plays this piece of crap" or "I like the character creator herpderp". If you aren't willing to take the time to play a multiplayer game with multiple players, you've never played it. That's rule number zero. Rule number one is increasing reward for increased risk. With EVE, this is true ingame and out. Risk more time and more resources, put yourself out there and meet new people and you may well be rewarded with endless fun and the best gaming experience there is -- or your name might be googlebombed if you try to become an internet celebrity like The Mittani did. Risk your ship and your ISK and you might make it big, or you might get ganked on the way there. The trick is managing those risks. Rule number two: EVE can be modelled as one big series of prisoner's dilemmas. Is the chatty guy in local out to get you? At what point should you grab the loot accrued with your newfound friend and run? Are the people around you whom you have chosen to risk trusting going to take everything from you tomorrow, or while you sleep?

    Rule number three: specialize. Yes, there are people smarter than you who have been playing this game for almost a decade. Yes, you may never catch up to them. But skills work such that no one character has them all, and this is unlikely ever to happen as CCP grows the game. If you choose a niche or playstyle (do your research) and if you apply the resources to hand intelligently, and better yet if you team up with people you can trust, nothing can stand in your way. A corollary of this is specialist knowledge: don't hand out the tricks of your trade for free, or you won't be able to charge as much for them. And so, I leave the rest of the rules for you to discover. Here's a rubik's cube. Go **** yourself.

It is a high qualityAs a EVE Online veteran of 4 years I can say that EVE is probably the most 'hardcore' and difficult MMO on the market. It is a high quality game at a low price, with no fee for the client and FREE seasonal expansions. The PvP in this game is spectacular with a good group of pilots and since it is a true sandbox game, the possibilities really are limitless. Expand

    Weird game which becomes weirder and weirder with each update.

    First and foremost: unless you can find a bunch of co-players - you're nothing.
    That's not how it was advertised...
    Activities which could, in theory, be solo'able are either not worth the effort (i. e. quite low income vs playtime and no fun) or hidden deep within 'back to 2000'ies' user interface.

    Second, unless you buy Omega subscription - you're nothing.
    That's not how it was advertised...
    In theory, your character can learn some skills to be quite decent. In fact, you'll be crushed by pilots whose ships, while being of same model with yours, have twice a durability and twice a firepower (at least!) just because of all OP things Omega allows to use. Even as a tackler you'll be just worse than average Omega-powered tackler. Aside of tackling, you have no use for anything without Omega anyway.

    Third, after all those years of megacorporations' domination, developers decided to cut the in-game cash flow for them...
    ...without increasing solo/small guild playable activities' attractivemess. Awesome.
    That's not how it was advertised...

    Fourth, 15$/month for just staring into display while my character is researching blueprints? Diggin ore? Trying to do one's best at market?
    15$/month is too costy for playing an in-game character 'class' whose sole responsibility is to click few buttons every once a while. Result: a good digger/researcher is hard to find. Thus, outrageous, desperate multiaccounting, botting, etc. Which doesn't add any chance to play and actually enjoy the game for solo and/or non-Omega players.

    Fifth, despite seemingly strict moderation the game is full of 'git gud' jerks.
    Which is NOT novice-friendly. Asking for advice may result in anything except an advice.

    Long story short, if you didn't played it - don't even try unless you have 2-6 friends to mess around with - and spare 15$/friend to purchase Omega for each.
    And, there are way more fun games to mess with 2-6 friends around - for less cash.

Avec en petit bonus, un nombre de russes qui cheat croissant.... Ne jouez pas à ce jeu sur le long terme, ça ne sert à rien. Expand

Jogabilidade ridícula, e um sistema de combate enfadonho e a falta de animações e detalhes em coisas simples relacionadas a nave, mal otimizado. Interfaces confusas, mal feitas, e complexas, essa complexidade não se deve a profundidade das mecânicas, mas sim como elas são apresentadas de maneira porca na sua tela, customização de naves ridícula e progressão tediosa e arrastada, é um jogo de 2013 que não evoluiu desde então, mas é sustentado por uma comunidade fiel. E pra fechar com chave de ouro, pay 2 win até o talo!!! Expand
