Great game, service needs work though

ThatGuyThere, Amazon

  • Summary: I read through hundreds of reviews saying this game is terrible and that people should spend their money elsewhere. I wanted to see what the whole thing was about so I bought it. I do not regret it at all. Very addictive and after an hour or two of frustratingly trying to get the game to run, I played till 4:00 in the morning. I like how you evolve and conquer other creatures but my favorite part is when you first start out as a cell.

"This game is simply not fun. UGG EA!! UGG Will Wright!"

  • Pros: There is a level of creative outlet here, but its minimal at best. The stats of each part, and limited number of parts nearly forces you to use the more unattractive pieces to get anywhere in the game. That will crush your creative happiness!
  • Cons: I hated everything about this game. Every phase plays like an incomplete idea. Even the creature creator falls short. The creature phase where you would use your own creation is so short as to be unenjoyable. I would not suggest this game!

"Not Will's Fault"

Brindall, CNET

  • Pros: It was an interesting vision. The creature creator was awesome.
  • Cons: The creator's vision was obviously minimized. Much content that was hinted at was missing. Each stage was very limited. Way too linear. I can tell a game is boring me when I start using cheat codes.

Over-Hyped. DRM ruins game.

  • Summary: First of all do NOT buy this used if you want to use online content. It associates license on server with original buyer. This complication takes an OK game & ruins it.

"Becomes VERY Boring VERY Quickly"

tek1979, CNET
7 October 2008
  • Pros: Its an interesting concept
  • Cons: Its just to simple, and thus becomes boring. There is no real depth on the creative side of things, it seems most of the game is just eye candy.

Warning! - Game is Horrible! Dont Read the Good Reviews

matinebleu, Ebay

  • Summary: I'm a long time Will Wright fan... I've bought and played most of the maxis titles ever since the original simcity, and I've bought all his more recent projects including The Sims and The Sims 2. However, I will NOT be buying Spore the way it is currently packaged! The game secretly installs SecuROM software on your computer, and won't let you install the game more than 3 times total. - Upgrading your computer soon? .. oops, too bad! There goes one of your 3 installs.

"A complete let down"

jujubee02, CNET
27 September 2008
  • Pros: Easy to use tools to design creatures, vehicles and buildings.
  • Cons: Gameplay is horrible. Story line is barely horrible and completely linear. Aside from the design aspect, there is very little customization or open-endedness as per their claims.
