"With Eve Echoes, developer CCP set out to bring the success of their epic space MMO, Eve Online, to mobile devices. Their recreation of New Eden required a few tweaks and changes to accommodate casual gameplay of the mobile masses but it stays true enough to its original DNA to attract the hardcore MMOer as well.

With a cash shop that doesn't ruin the game for free to play gamers or destroy the competitive player-driven economy, it shouldn't be too long before we start hearing about gigantic PVP battles like the ones Eve Online has brought us in the past." - 8/10

"For a mobile port, EVE Echoes is an incredible experience, it brings together many of the aspects of its desktop brethren while stripping moldings some of the more autonomic systems for the casual mobile gamer. It’s a game with so much variety, pilots could get lost warping from one system to the next and yet, that complexity provides a ton to discover."

Metro - 8/10

"It’s a surprisingly expansive mobile interpretation of its older sibling, your clone pilot gradually earning and learning new skills, and with that the ability to fly better spacecraft. Ship-to-ship combat takes place at huge range in the empty blackness of space, but it’s nevertheless satisfying blowing away space pirates with your slowly improving arsenal." - 7.5/10
