    "Unique game! IMO there is no other game like EVE Online in terms of its technology, gameplay, metagame and community. I like how it is about building a space empire. I just started playing this with my friend for less than a week already and i expect that we will continue to play this for four to six months to unlock just one ship and system components. "

    "I agree with @Nathan Gomez. Although i have played other space MMORPGs out there. I would still put this on my top 5 space MMOs for PC. I recently started playing this again after some time of ignoring it.
