Darkspore

  • 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...

  • 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: 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.

  • Summary: You'd be forgiven if you assumed Darkspore might be similar to 2008's Spore ; after all, the titles are similar, and both games were created by the same developer. Well, let go of any preconceptions: this spin-off may have some elements in common with the game that spawned it, but it is structurally...
  • 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: 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.

  • 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...
