  • Summary: I can understand why the DRM would be a problem to some, but I personally have had no problems so far (I've only installed it on one computer).
  • Pros: Very creative game. Cell, Creature, and Space stages are very fun and unusual. The graphics are decent, and the game runs surprisingly smooth (better than some games that I have that are much older). The various creators are excellent.
  • Cons: The Tribal and Civilization stages seemed more like chores and filler material than actual gameplay. The game gets old after a time.

DRM punished me

Michael W., Newegg
15 July 2009
  • Summary: I am a Will Wright fan, this is a fun game even if the DRM is painful. I only fear that galactic adventures will make it like WoW.
  • Pros: Great game, wish each stage was longer.
  • Cons: Someone had stolen my key with a keygen before i installed so i had to spend two weeks with EA support getting a new key. All because I didn't steal the game.

  • Summary: I didn't enjoy the game myself, I got to the last space stage when the game finally opened up, and just left. I was somewhat frustrated that during the RTS stage I was forced into a certain role (being a herbivore I had to convert, instead of destroy or make economic peace with other civilizations). I wanted to go back and start over, be I figured it would be generally the same game; and I'm not that creative with the creature editor.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: - DRM with this product is horrible, being extremely limiting. - Somewhat limiting gameplay. (I was a herbivore, and found my options limited when presented with the RTS stage) - Shallow gameplay

SPORE---Decent, but dissappointing.. 77/100

  • Summary: Storyline- The storyline in this game is kind of iffy, but I would say that for what it is it did well. Each stage is like a chapter in a big book and each little portion of the stage was like a paragraph. The story was linear and logical, what you did affected the next stage like most games nowadays but this one, it more felt like YOU did it. 20/20 Graphics – The graphics are beautiful and incredibly realistic.

completely unique game

  • Summary: I just want to play the game i paid for. Is that seriously so much to ask? The DRM used on this game installs all kinds of backdoors into your computer which eat up RAM, slow down your internet connection, and basically just work like spyware that your anti-virus software will tell you is a "SEVERE RISK" to your computer system. And I paid 50 bucks for that? The real kicker is this....
  • Pros: Wow, this game is a new concept. It's like playing super-duper sim-city. You create a little organism and it evolves through different stages of existence and eventually takes over the world. -completely original -neat graphics -totally user reactive -you control everything. EVERYTHING -fun -entertaining for a long time
  • Cons: So if you buy this game, you will have to call EA customer support in order to figure out how to get it installed, because the cd-key listed on your manual probably wont work. So this means 1st: you buy the game 2nd: you try to install the game which belongs to you because you paid for it, but you cant. Annoying 3rd: you call EA's customer service(which is NOT even an 800 number, so you get to pay for the call!) ANnoying 4th: you go through an automated system in whic...

Great idea but not much content

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Great idea, the most customizable game I've ever played. Sure it's a lot of fun to be able to design your creature and have it behave in a realistic manner. The evolution from basic life to space travel is really interesting and fun.
  • Cons: The game play itself tries to combine many different elements from multiple genres, and it succeeds to a degree, it's just that there isn't much to it. The content is lacking. The biggest part of gameplay is space travel, but besides completing goals and doing repetitive chores, there's not much to it. You'll get bored soon after, but there is a lot of replay at least in creating creatures. Overall, great idea but not enough content in the game. I see this game having...
