EVE Online1848961

22 November 2020

Massive multiplayer online game set in outer space.

Overview

EVE Online is a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) set in a science-fiction based, persistent world. Players take the role of spaceship pilots seeking fame, fortune, and adventure in a huge, complex, exciting, and sometimes hostile galaxy.

A nominal monthly subscription is charged for each player's account; users are responsible for their own Internet service fees. EVE is not a stand-alone, single player game and can only be played online. Unlike most MMOGs that split a large player base up among small clones of the same game world (called "shards") containing no more than 3,000 people, EVE is unique in that all of its players inhabit the same game world.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it offers in-App Purchases. More info here.

The game has a massive learning curve, but I found when taking it very slowly it's not so bad to figure out. Don't expect to be flying massive ships in huge battles any time soon. The client runs well on my Mac (MacBook Air) though it does tax the CPU (the top corner of the keyboard gets hot after a while). Graphics look great and I've not had any technical issues.

One of the best MMO games out there. The learning curve is indeed very steep! But there is no other game as realistic as EVE Online.

Overall a big disappointment. Graphics are suburb - the only positive quality of this game. The interface is screaming for simplicity...twice I "lost" my ship, and had to resort to chat to get help in finding it. Chat community was borderline hostile, with many not only not offering help, but instead treating my requests for help with acerbic and obnoxious commentary. But my main complaint (as if the chat wasn't enough) is that there are too many buttons!!! There are drawers, folders, icons galore in the main interface. Too confusing, it requires more than the 14 days my trail was limited to. It would be vastly improved if it were not for that one glaring problem. I should have to buy a book just to pick up the basics...MMORPG should be "jump right in" with skills picked up along the way, rather than the gameplay hindered often and frequently with searches on Google for how to do this, and how to do that. Pretty disappointing!

For what it is, a space trading and PvP strategy game, it is unsurpassed. It is actively developed and consistently improving. It grows on you and before long one is delving deeper and deeper into adventure and riches. Good stuff.

Apocrypha is running very well, considering the forced graphics upgrade from the classic client. I'm running 10.4.11 on a 2.33GHz iMac (upgraded 256meg 7600 card) and it's still quite playable with all graphics setting turned to high -- though for big battles I'll probably need to lower some settings.

I couldn't find how to create a FREE demo account, all links point to paying with a credit card or entering a prepaid card number... nice...

This game is the most extensive MMORPG I have ever seen. Its economic aspect has been the subject of numerous WSJ articles and is widely regarded as a completely accurate economic model. The PVP of this game is a lot of fun as well. The universe is extremely expansive as well and the possibilities are endless. This game makes WoW looks like childs-play (this is coming from a former hardcore raider) The current stability of the client is slightly buggy though. I have confidence in CCP that they will iron out all the issues soon, considering they just released an enormous expansion. oh yeah, did i mention all expansions are free?! WOOT :D

It is not $20 per month to play. It is $20 to set up an account and get one month of play. After that at is $15 per month. Month to Month 71.70 for 6 months 131.41 for 12 months. When setting up a new account you can also get a 14 day free trial. I believe this pricing is virtually identical to WOW.

After starting the download (slow high speed,) I checked their website. It is $20 a month - is any game worth $240 a year to play? On downloading the game, this file is just a patch. Now to find the game to see if it is worth it.

For Windows there's a version with "Premium Graphics Content": "The same game software as Classic, plus the Premium Graphics Content for all ships, stations and stargates." Mac and Linux users can't currently download this it seems. :( I guess there aren't any affordable graphics cards for the Mac that are capable to run the game with that detail anyway... >:( I'm tired of being a "second class citizen" when it comes to gaming just because I prefer the Mac OS. Apple: do something! :)

Just an FYI- The Mac client will time out without warning (or any indication that it did, for that matter) if you take too long to make your character (and why wouldn't you?) The only solution at this time is to take a screenshot and start over and try to duplicate your choices. Not exactly a great new-user experience... LAME! Please fix!

I played this game a couple of years ago on a PC. Now I'm playing it on my Intel iMac 2.4. Very smooth graphics at the highest resolution of 1680x1050. Very excellent game in my opinion.

I was always a bit curious about this game, although I never had a computer capable of running it natively. Having played it previously, I was highly interested in the Mac version, even if it was merely a wrapper around the original Windows version. Sadly, the game has proven completely unusable for me. In the first few minutes of designing a character, I was disconnected three times and crashed another two. When I finally got into the game with a character, I crashed again with a runtime error. Although others are having a good time right now with it, it's my feeling currently that I was trying to run an alpha version of a product, not a final release. Perhaps a future version will do better.

NOooo!!! There goes the rest of my spare time! I'd managed to tell myself that it wasn't worth getting a PC to play this game. But now...
