Your friend must suck at that game, because I can fly across the entire universe in less than a half hour.
Anyways.. I HIGHLY recommend EVE. I've played WoW for well over a year when it was released, and well, it just gets old. It's too easy, therefore you run out of fun really early on.
EVE is a very deep game, like some others have covered, you can be an actual pirate. You can do quite literally anything you want.
There's a story about a couple years ago, I think it's an interesting read that proves just how deep the rabbit hole goes..http://eve.klaki.net/heist/
I tried making an EVE thread a week ago or so, and it didn't get many responses. A lot of people dislike MMO's around here, and most people hate EVE even more. EVE just takes a lot of time, it's not a baby-mmo like WoW.
If you decide to play EVE, lemme know. i've been playing for a few weeks, just got my first cruiser yesterday.
