Tut tut you should not make assumptions PvE is my bag baby. I am a mission runner was in Eve will be here.

After a remarkably easy and fast download and a trouble free installation, something you cannot always take for granted even with a full game never mind a beta, i found the avatar/character creation a lot of fun and spent a good few minutes attempting to create a truly ugly face.
Since this is a beta and can expect full wipe at the end i made no effort to fine tune or even read the set up instructions i just went for a full on military spec, wanting to get straight into the game and start trashing some mech's. I then spent a confused 30 minutes trying to work out how everything works, actually losing my first mech because i could not target or fire my weapons, it only became clear when i realised a lot of the mechanics are very much like those on Eve,  once over that hurdle everything became a lot more fun. You can very quickly upgrade your starting equipment from drops, though i tended to find i ran out of ammo very quickly and as in Eve making your own is going to become a necessity. 
All in all i had a fun few hours play and can see it beeing a winner, the only gripe i have and its a very small gripe is that the enviroment is very EQ, kinda blocky and lacking in detail and thats running my graphics on the highest settings.
