I don't play it, but here are the subscription prices, which are in line with other on-line games:

Outside Europe
Cost/month Total cost
1-month-plan $ 14.95 $ 14.95
3-month-plan $ 12.95 $ 38.85
6-month-plan $ 11.95 $ 71.70

Here is a review of the game:

A good way to find out how players like the game is to read its forums; you will get the usual whiners and fanboys, but many times you will find sane members expressing sound opinions and criticisms.

Regards,
John

Here is a free 14 day trial of EVE Online, and if that doesn't interest you can spend the next half a year looking for something that does here. I'm trying the Ryzom trial right now.

Plus, there are something like 10 MMOs in open beta at the moment.

I am sure our members would be interested in your analysis of it after you have logged two week's playing time.
Have fun!
