  • 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.

Darkspore (PC)

  • 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: During the multi-year development of Spore , Will Wright promised the universe. And while the evolution sim’s insanely rich creature creator wound up being a diversion unto itself, the ambitious 2008 game wound up disappointing most.

  • Conclusion: A strange animal, Darkspore doesn’t seem to want you to like its characters—and won’t let you make your own.

Darkspore review

22 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Simulation gurus Maxis have extended their Spore license to create a sci-fi roleplaying game that includes the series' quirky creation tools. Sounds good on paper.
  • Pros: A wealth of heroes and customisations to choose from. Excellent sound. A clever squad ability mechanic. Fun in co-op. Low system requirements.
  • Cons: It’s a grind in singleplayer. The story is barely there. The menu system could be better.

Darkspore

Gamereactor
15 May 2011
  • Conclusion: In spite of its title, Darkspore has connection to Spore worth mentioning. Instead this is a Diablo clone in a science fiction setting, that brings with it a lot of new ideas - most of them great.
  • Pros: Innovates the genre, great online features, plenty of content.
  • Cons: Overwhelming amount of heroes, too much micro-management of loot, gets repetitive.

  • Excerpt: Passé maître dans l'art de décliner ses licences à toutes les sauces et sur tous les supports, Maxis nous offre aujourd'hui Darkspore, la rencontre improbable entre Spore et Diablo. Improbable ? Pas tant que ça si l'on considère que l'un et l'autre sont basés sur le même concept : l'évolution.

  • Conclusion: Darkspore ist ein Witz. Es ist das perfekte Beispiel für einen Titel, bei dem man mit wenig Aufwand viel Geld verdienen möchte. Was hier an Recycling und Billig-Spielelementen zusammenkommt ist eine Frechheit und eine Verarschung der Gamer.
  • Pros: Große Heldenauswahl..., Grafisch teils wirklich schick, Grundgerüst durchaus motivierend...
  • Cons: ...die spielerisch wertlos ist, Hardwarehungrig, Online-Pflicht!, Seichtes Gameplay, Schwaches Balancing, ...aber nur wenige Minuten

  • Conclusion: Det är lätt att döma ut Darkspore i början, men när man har suttit med spelet ett bra tag så blir det faktiskt något utav det. Costumizen börjar ta form då lootet man har samlat in blir användbart, man låser upp fler hjältar att leka med, man satsar mer och blir modigare i kampanjbanorna.
  • Pros: • Charmigt utseende • Roligt co-op • Många hjältar att välja mellan • Att satsa sitt loot funktionen • Enkla kontroller
  • Cons: • Buggit • Tråkigt att spela ensam • Tar långt tid att uppskatta • Tunn Story • Dåligt röstskådespel • Att inte kunna skapa sina hjältar från scratch
