If you want a little description from the magazine here it is...

Maya 5.0 is a powerhouse 3D application with breadth and depth to cover any 3D project''s needs. The newly interated Mental Ray adds outstanding photorealistic rendering capabilities, while new and improved polygon and subdivision surface tools make game modeling much faster and easier. Still, Maya''s real ace in the hole is its amazing MEL scripting language, which lets you completely customize the program and quickly write tools to provide just about any functionality you can dream up. Maya''s fast, customizable, artist-friendly interface is also an important reason to choose this program.

Maya may be highly rated, but it is definitely not free. Maya PLE, aka "Personal Learning Edition," is exactly what it sounds like -- a verson of Maya you can use to learn on, before you invest the several thousand dollars it will take to own a functional copy. PLE renders are watermarked, and you can''t export your files in any meaningful way -- not even to the standard Maya file format. Any work you do in PLE stays in PLE.

If you specifically want to learn Maya, then by all means, get PLE. But if you''re looking for something you can use as an amateur game developer, I''m afraid you have to keep looking.
