Summary: This game is a series of 5 minigames tied together. There is a great concept of evolving through time and the game succeeds in customization as you have full control over how everything in your culture looks from armor to buildings and vehicles. Beyond that, the gameplay is bland.
Summary: First impressions of this game were great but eventually some fatal flaws came to surface which can't really be ignored. The premise is amazing and handled quite well, when I started up a new game of this recently I got chills seeing the meteor in the opening cinematic.
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.
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).
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
