Pros: I thought the idea itself was really great. Being able create a creature from scratch and see the evolution of your creation.... being able to go past the modern age into space... and the ability to be able to customize EVERYTHING.
Cons: The replay value of the game islow to me. Everything was basically the same. The unique attributes to the creatures have no effect on later ages. Although I put being able to customize everything as a pro... It gets really annoying after a while.
Summary: I debated for many weeks whether or not I should get this game. I finally did, but I wish I hadn't. It's okay and all. I played it for a few hours but probably only because it was hard to get the hang of. I had more fun looking at the different things you could do with your creature rather than actually playing it. I'm not saying that it is not worth the money to everyone, because everyone has different likes and dislikes.
Summary: Ok so this title has few good aspects but there is plenty more negative aspects to go with it. I purchased this title for my spouse and nephew, upon entering my home with enthusasim to show them what I had purchased that they had been asking for...they seen the title installing it on the computer and then played it. The evolution stages and creation was alright for them and even myself. Once the tribal stage kicked in the game got a little more interesting.
Pros: Creature Creator is fun until you realize that your creations' parts purely aesthetic. Good for toddlers (with parent over shoulder making sure other players' content is not crudely pornographic).
Cons: Boring, Tedious, graphically inept, repetitive... I could go on. Just don't buy it based on it's hype. It is NOT what is advertised to be. EA should be held to account for false advertising.
Pros: *It was promoted well *It was unique - whenever I got into the beginning of a new stage I felt excited because it was unlike anything I've ever played before (well, most things)
Cons: *It crashed ALL the time! *It's aimed for too wide an audience *Not very customizable. Even the character/item creation is kinda weak. *Boring beacause of the lack of depth - it involves no stradegy and isn't very complex
Summary: Like most people I'd been looking forward to spore for a long time, I got it and I have to say it's probably one of the biggest let downs in video game history. All the stuff they said they'd have is there, but none of it is done well. The game starts losing steam at the tribal stage then just goes into a death dive from there. I can't even really put into words how disappointed I am with this game.
Summary: I don't understand the hype around this game. It was ok at first. I went from cell stage to space stage in about three hours. It seemed too easy (even with difficulty set on normal) until the space stage. The creature stage was kind of fun, but it went downhill from there. Once you reach the space stage, it sucks the big one. The combat and controls are horrible. It consists of holding the mouse button down over a ship or quickly clicking it until your finger hurts.
Pros: This game has some really great visuals. Will do a lot for the future of video game concepts.
Cons: You get board after about an hour or so and really don?t have any inspiration to return to the game. DRM is pathetic. More of a viruses in this case but I guess that kind of goes along with the game.
"Over-hyped, more interesting to fans of Sim games"
10 September 2008
Pros: Creating and evolving creatures is fun, and their personalities are really endearing. It's obvious that a ton of attention went into the animation system -- no matter what kind of creature you design the animations appear fairly natural.
Cons: I was really expecting this game to be revolutionary... it's not. The creation and evolution aspect is fun but not especially mind-blowing, and the gameplay is *really* simplistic and gets boring quickly. The graphics are underwhelming as well.
