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.
Summary: I really expected something great from EA this time around. I've been disappointed. I was a big fan of the Sims series and hoped that this would be another great release. The game is a great concept, very nicely presented, but short on details. It takes no time at all to go from a tiny little life form in the muck to a space-faring force to be reckoned with. I did it in less than six hours.
Summary: The game is fun. It is quirky and humorous, although the early stages are rather simplistic. I understand this was deliberate in the development of the game. As a player progresses to a higher level, it becomes more complex but never to the point of having to go back and repeat again and again just to advance. However, when one gets to the Space section one runs into a problem. There seems to be some issues that cause frequent crashes, even on high end machines.
Pros: - interesting character creation - interesting gameplay and variation of - works on lesser computers
Cons: - poor navigation, especially in space stage - user characters lose more and more of their advantages given by creation choices (weapons on your ship have no effect in space stage) - very bad scroll navigation (planets - in space age boring missions
Summary: I had never heard of Spore until very recently, so I avoided all the hype. Thus, I had next to no expectations. The five stages of gameplay are vastly different from each other - there are elements of many other games I've played, the Tribal stage owing a lot to the Age of Empires series - but together they create a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Summary: Recently i bought one of those nice Aspire One netbooks, i could happily install my old games: Max Payne, Star Craft, Sam & Max, Civ 3, Age Of Empires, ect, ect. My point is that i've had these games for years, and the discs came in handy during many hard drive crashes and re-installs thanks to circumstances beyond my control.
