  • Conclusion: It’s not a bad effort by any means, but with the likes of Torchlight and Titan Quest casting a shadow (to name but a few), it’s difficult to see where a potential audience will find its long-term draw.

  • Summary: As I played through Darkspore , my opinion of the game kept changing. It's a dungeon crawler in the vein of Diablo or Torchlight , but in a futuristic setting.

Bloody action RPG encourages online play and text chatting.

  • Conclusion: Darkspore's few unique offerings can't quite save it from being an average loot-based action RPG, even for those who enjoy the genre.
  • Pros: The character editor, the ability to switch between three characters during battle.
  • Cons: Deceptively simple, repetitive, gameplay never changes, poor level design, the story.

  • Excerpt: was a game with great promise, and ultimately (in my opinion) did not deliver on all of it. It was broken into four separate parts when one flowing game would have been much better. What was great about the game though was the Creature Creator.

  • Excerpt: There was much building anticipation, for the late evolution of Spore, the brainchild of Maxis maven Will Wright, and Publisher EA.  Whether or not those longs delays, and lofty hype played a part in the game’s mixed reception remains up for debate.
