There are plenty of reasons not to get involved in EVE Online. The ludicrous length of time required to make the most of the game, combined with the general trickiness and hostility of the universe don't really help out. Of all the games likely to trip you over and then steal your shopping, it's EVE Online. And yet there's something in this game that can be found nowhere else. It is, as a number of people have claimed, essentially incomparable with other MMOs. It might seem incredibly daunting as you start out, but Eurogamer wants you to keep your eye on the big picture, and to tell you what it's possible to achieve in the EVE universe.
