Eve Online Review 2012 – Geeky Stuff 101 – Blog

Eve: Online is a brilliantly complex but easy game to get into. From my point of view being a relatively new player. When I first started everything seemed so deep and impossible to get your head round but as soon as I started doing the in game tutorials which really help the brand new player.

I bought this game because I needed something new and probably a bit more challenging.I did fancy the look of being a space pilot, I never really enjoyed space games where you go around killing aliens etc but this game just seemed to have that bit extra. It wasn’t just about flying around space and destroying aliens it was about making ISK (In game currency), mining from asteroids, manufacturing ship parts and MUCH more.

Controls -the controls in game, are very very simple. All it is is mouse clicks and then lots of keyboard shortcuts. The shortcuts are not mandatory but basically all you need to be able to do is click and move a mouse. For the complexity of the game it has such simple controls. For this part of the game I would definitely give 10/10 just for pure simplicity.

Graphics -the graphics within the game are of a high standard although they don’t compare to anything like Crysis. But for the game price and so much to do in game there brilliant. The planets look incredible and so does everything else in the space. The ships up close can be a little blurry but you cannot really tell. For graphics I would definitely give a 8/10.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GUI -the GUI is very very easy to control. All you have to do is click, click and click. You have everything on the left hand side of your screen. Your ship information at the bottom. This all can be customized.

Difficulty – the difficulty in the game can range massively from very complex fleet management and command, but then can also range to the most simple tasks such as mining or running cargo from one place to another. The difficulty of this game because of the range its hard to give it a definite rating but what I can say is. For every type of player there is something to do within Eve: Online.

What do I do? -  the question here is. What can’t I do? Literally there is a space for everyone in Eve. From a commander of hundreds of ships to a simple corporation administrator or even a simple cargo runner, running cargo from one place to another. It would be to hard to explain how much stuff there is to do in Eve. The best thing to do is research Careers in Eve: Online

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All in all. This game is incredible and a must play for any type of gamer.
