Spore Hero Review

Cheat Code Central
10 March 2010
  • Conclusion: If we were grading Spore Hero on novelty alone, it would get high marks for personality and a great sense of humor. However, it's not an adventure you sit back and experience. You'll quickly need to take control of this thing, and it just isn't very much fun to do so.

  • Conclusion: Audio is superb. The game contains plenty of spoken dialogue. Each of the main characters are further stereotyped with their accents. Papa-Doc has a deep Jamaican-style accent, whilst Blue Belly has a Scottish accent reminiscent of Shrek.

Kid-focused Spore spin-off combines thinking with thwacking.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Spore Hero is a spin-off of the Spore PC game, but it is a separate story-driven adventure game targeted to kids ages 8-12. Kids can create and design their own creature to be their hero, and evolve it during the game depending on their own preferences.

Spore Hero - WII - Review

GameZone
8 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Many years ago, there was a children's software program called Monster Maker Math. The premise was that children earned monster body parts as they answered math questions correctly. These body parts were wacky and wonderful, and the monsters fun to design.

  • Excerpt: Spore Hero is a Wii-exclusive spin-off of last year’s innovative PC game Spore, taking that game’s complexities and refining them with the Wii in mind. The result is a fun and accessible creature adventure that rewards creativity.

Spore Hero [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
4 November 2009
  • Excerpt: As the game begins, two differently coloured meteors crash land onto a planet and the effects of this are felt immediately as creatures suddenly jump through evolutionary stages as soon as they come in contact with them.
  • Pros: Fairly high level of customisation, Visuals are nice and crisp, Store creatures you create in the Sporepedia and use them in multiplayer battles,…
  • Cons: …unfortunately the Battle Mode isn’t terrific, Practical evolution of a creature means less bodyparts you’re likely to use, Customisation aside, it can get a bit repetitive, Relatively short game

Spore Hero

Gamereactor
14 October 2009
  • Conclusion: While the original Spore was well received by the media and did respectable numbers at retail it did not live up to the massive hype and expectations gamers had. Given that Maxis and EA are responsible for massive Sims franchise it came as no surprise when expansions and spin offs where announced.
  • Pros: Nice creation creation that is almost identical to the PC game.
  • Cons: Few body parts unlocked at the start, poor playability, uninteresting story.
