The battlefield is so uniform that Star Gates naturally become the focal point of a lot of the action.
Pretty true statement for the most part.
It also means that you can't catch up to players who have been in the game longer than yourself simply by playing more.
True in the terms of actual skillpoint numbers but we all know what a specialised character can acheive these days. A lot of us 2yr players have skills spread out all over various skill areas in terms of ships, gunnery, and science skills.
I think the reviewer has definitely played Eve Online.
