Eve Online: Commissioned Officer Edition offers a life jacket to those who never had the chance to play the hardcore version. Newbies will find they can learn to play this game better and have a better chance of survival than if they try to play the previous version.

This is an adventure game set in space where exploration is the name of the game which will allow the player to build up their power and eventual wealth so they could continue exploring the vastness of space. This edition will allow for a swift increase in the player or character statistics and to make it easier to catch up with the seasoned players.

For those who never had a chance to play EVE Online, prepare for the adventure. It all begins with the gamer picking to play a specific alien race. There are four choices: Amarr, Gellente, Minmatar and Caldari. Each of the alien characters have their own basic personalities and unique personal histories. The choice of which alien to play will not impact the gameplay, however, the gamer will have to go through a tutorial and a creation process. Hold on to your hats, guys, the tutorial is endless, Two hours. This is necessary for this is where the gamer learns the tactics which will improve the playing of the game so patience is a virtue here.

Now, there are times when going from point A to point B may take a lot of time, so go ahead, mix some snacks and drinks, prepare them on a tray, lay down some napkins too while you’re at it, oh, and don’t forget to feed the cat. Now you can go back in front of the screen, sit down, set the table, eat leisurely, stand up, wash the dishes and go back. Aahhh, now the destination is reached. Let’s start playing.

Learning how to translate the tutorials to actual gameplay will take a lot of time. Consider this as a learning process: when flying the plane, don’t forget to buckle your seat-belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Getting blasted out the sky can be easily accomplished, so watch out and remember the tutorial. Now, if by now the readers have not realized that Eve Online: Commissioned Officer Edition is a difficult game, it is time to realize this: it is a difficult game. This is not for the fainthearted, folks. If the gamer does not like learning, don’t get into this. Thankfully there are moderators to turn to if things get ugly. In the end, I really can’t quite wrap my head around this game. I am not sure who is the target player here. This is complex, and involves a lot of learning.

Yes, the game has been around since 2003, so there must be a target audience. The presentation of this game is spectacular, to say the least. So if the gamer is not like I am, one who cannot stand learning and learning and learning, endlessly, then I guess it’s for them. I don’t know.
