Summary: Parents need to know that Spore Hero Arena is target toward slightly younger audience than the popular PC/Mac game, Spore ; and that it is a completely separate game from the Wii version called Spore Hero . This game is a solid choice for kids old enough to read, but too young for the open-world online universe the PC version offers. Kids will find the most engaging feature of the PC game, the Creature Creator, in this game in a more limited, but still satisfying form.
Excerpt: Of all the games least likely to receive a conversion from PC to DS, Spore would probably have been at the top of my list. It’s a sprawling game that manages to make the term ‘god sim’ feel inadequate, as you’re tasked with guiding a life form from single-celled lifeform to galaxy-conquering overlord, evolving and shaping them as you see fit over millions of years. There is no way any of that could fit on a DS.
Pros: Creature creator from
Cons: Creature creator is awkward to get to grips with at first, Needlessly frustrating and difficult, Success on some stages seems to depend entirely on how charitable the AI’s feeling
Conclusion: “-Universum. Viele Kämpfe, einige Rätsel und vor allem der alles überragende Editor können überzeugen. Das Spielgeschehen wird nicht so schnell langweilig, da es immer wieder etwas Neues zu entdecken gibt. Was besonders heraussticht ist der Mehrspieler-Modus, in dem Sie sogar online kämpfen können.
