Extremely disappointing and shallow.

C. Fredericks, Amazon
12 September 2008
  • Summary: I've been a fan of Will Wright for many years and when I first started hearing about Spore years ago I was very excited. I watched the videos and they looked superb. I downloaded the creature creator and it too was excellent! Finally the day came when Spore was released and I went to my friend's house to play it. I was super excited! He said it was so lame that I could have it. I didn't listen to him and was overjoyed to have been given his copy!

I don't understand magazine reviews giving this game high marks

Jakub Reczek, Amazon
9 September 2008
  • Summary: This game has some revolutionary concepts, such as automatically shared user content and amazing design tools (that were already introducted and perfected, and some would say superior by Galactic Civilizations 2 years ago). However, there is no 'game' here. As some people put, the 'game' amounts to over simplified tasks that are monotonous and repetitive.

Returning the game...

SCF, Amazon
7 September 2008
  • Summary: I played with the creature creator a bit and had a good time. I long ago pre-ordered Spore and have not had time to look further into the game as it approaches release. When I finally did, a few days ago, I discovered that they are implementing the absurd SecuROM DRM. I have no interest in paying full price for a game that I will be severely restricted from being able to play at a later point.

Dumbed down experience and draconian DRM

Erich Maria Remarque, Amazon
7 September 2008
  • Summary: See those older 5-star reviews from 2006 (two years before the game was released)? Well, they had a reason to be excited. Spore was supposed to be a revolutionary experience, combining multiple genres while concentrating on evolution and genetics. Fast forward two years and here we have the finished product, ready to be installed on our hard drives.

Great shipping speed

Brandy, Amazon

  • Summary: The game Spore arrived in a timely manner. Ordering was easy too. I just cannot as yet properly comment on the game itself because of a "glitch" with contacting EA's licensing server, so I have not even been able to open the game at all. I have been in constant contact with EA and it is a known issue. I can only wait until they come up with a fix. With the game being out for over three years I expected any bugs to have been exterminated by now.
