The Trackball of Truth has posted a review of EVE Online that sounds all too familiar: great graphics, steep learning curve, klunky user interface. Naturally, he’s stopped playing the game.
I had a similar experience with EVE. I didn’t think the learning curve was too bad (maybe I’m too used to number-crunching my way through a BattleTech game), but even though the graphics were stunning, I spent most of my time flying through space, looking for something to do. I stopped playing because I was bored, something I didn’t think was possible in an epic space opera game.
What about you guys? Any of you tried EVE, or another MMO, and quit because the interface was too hard to figure out or the gameplay was too boring?
