Spore (PC) Review

21 January 2009
  • Summary: For me, Spore feels like wasted potential. There are so many opportunities to make the game more in-depth and challenging, but it was somewhat squandered. Spore tries too hard to be like every game imaginable and the jack-of-all-trades mentality doesn’t work. The customization engine really shows off Spore’s potential as well as Maxis’ talent, but everything else feels a tad rushed.

Spore game review

Boys' Life magazine
10 December 2008
  • Excerpt: There’s been a lot of hype about Spore, the big new game from Will Wright and his hardworking crew at Electronic Arts. Wright is the creator of The Sims, and Spore took six years to make. It’s supposed to be the biggest thing he’ll ever do. But does Spore live up to the hype? Spore is a fascinating game in which you start out as a simple cell in the ocean.
  • Pros: Completely immersive gameplay experience; Creature Creator rocks; share creatures and worlds online.
  • Cons: Takes time to install; some camera angle issues; graphics could be better.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Spore was meant to be everything to everyone; casual, hardcore, old, young, fat, thin, ugly, uglier. But it isn't. It's a bit of everything - a tiny helping. As a result it's unsatisfying and a letdown. But it retains charm through the editor software. And the fact that you can make penises, which are funny.

  • Excerpt: Better and more sadly described as a "Life Simulator for Dummies," Spore is not quite the evolution of videogaming most hoped it to be, though it is all about evolution.

  • Excerpt: At the end of the day, though, a cell cannot live on food pellets alone. Yep, sometimes a cell gets that amorous feeling and needs to get it on with a fine looking cell of the opposite gender. Reproduction is the mechanic through which the player can spend DNA points accumulated through eating on various new parts.
