MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online is a new first-person shooter MMO released in the summer of 2013. Gamers who love shooter games and sci-fi are in for a good treat, as MWO has a lot of features to keep players entertained.

Players can choose from up to 12 BattleMechs, each with its own set of weaponry and ammo. Your skills are going to be put to the test as you battle it out with other Mechs. You need timing and skill to know when to attack, as spamming all your skills like a madman will cause you to overheat, effectively shutting your system down, leaving you helpless in the battlefield.

MechWarrior Online is a thoroughly enjoyable game, especially once you have mastered your piloting skills and equipped your mech with the right gears.


Battlestar Galactica Online

Battlestar Galactica Online is a browser game similar to Eve Online. You can't expect much from the graphics, but it's actually pretty good for a browser game. You might even think it's a client-based game when you enter full screen mode.

The gaming experience in Battlestar can be really fun, especially with a huge population of players. You are definitely going to make friends along the way, as the chat features in the game are great.

The downside in playing Battlestar Galactica is its PvE. Expect a ton of grinding in this game. If you want to make things easier though, whether in PvE or PvP, you can use real money to buy items and become stronger.

      I actually like that you included things like MechWarrior Online on this list, For me EVE Online is about the depth and sci-fi setting rather than just the space setting.

      I do not limit this list with purely space combat games. Many gamers out there are looking for games with similar gameplay, features, etc., and not one that exactly resembles EVE.
