  • 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. While many games in this genre essentially end up being Diablo with a pretty coat of paint, Darkspore introduces a number of fresh ideas and concepts that make it a whole lot more than a clone. With unique concepts, however, come unique problems.

Bloody action RPG encourages online play and text chatting.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Darkspore is a violent action RPG that encourages players to connect with others online. Its light story about fighting off an alien menace takes a backseat to sensationalized sci-fi violence, which, though not gory, is often exceptionally bloody. Teamwork with human allies -- either friends or strangers -- is all but necessary to succeed, especially in the game's extremely difficult later missions.

  • Excerpt: Most anyone who plays with the Spore creature editor will crave a more immediate application for all the writhing, spiky bits you could put on your monsters, and evidently, this isn't lost on Maxis. Darkspore is about as immediate as it gets, though its combination of Diablo-style click-and-kill gratification with Spore's funky toolbox is far from the most intuitive mix available. Does all the tinkering yield gold, or just a bunch of base metal?

Darkspore Review

  • Summary: What it lacks in variety and narrative, Darkspore makes up for with fun cooperative combat and character customization that deepens the more you play.
  • Pros: The promise of new heroes drives you forward, Squad mechanics lead to tactical flexibility, Combat and customization evolve as you play, Serene sci-fi atmosphere
  • Cons: Lame storytelling, even by action RPG standards, Lack of context can make combat feel like pure grind with no stakes, Some minor mechanical quirks

  • Summary: Addictive but not compelling, Darkspore offers something for loot-addicts but little more on top.

  • Summary: Er verschijnen een heleboel games die volgens de ontwikkelaars allerlei revolutionaire features bevatten. Vaak blijkt een dergelijke game echter niet aan de beloftes te voldoen en reageren fans soms erg teleurgesteld bij de release van de game. Een voorbeeld van een dergelijke game is het in 2008 verschenen Spore.

  • Summary: А вот сама игра может. Если у вас нет возможности играть в кооперативе с друзьями, если вы терпеть не можете однообразие или вы просто не любите action\RPG как жанр, то вряд ли есть смысл знакомиться с последним творением Maxis – вряд ли вас постигнет разочарование, скорее всего единственным чувством будет беспросветная скука. Все остальные, скорее всего, с определённой долей удовольствия проведут за « Темноспорой » несколько дней своей жизни.
