Summary: I enjoyed the computer version so thought I would try this. I played it for a couple of weeks before beating it. I am 25 so it is probably meant for a little younger player. But I did enjoy it and then passed it off to my brother to play. After beating the end there was plenty still to do but the majority of the missions were complete.
Summary: My boys, 9 and 12, both enjoy playing this game. They had fun creating their characters. I'm not sure about how well they are able to play together, though. They say they can only fight each other if they are in 2 player mode, and they'd rather work together toward a goal. I'm not sure if their comment is due to not knowing how to make it work cooperatively,or if it really doesn't have this option.
Summary: Spore Hero was purchased as a gift for my 17-year-old brother, who enjoyed Spore for the PC greatly. After a single day of playing, he said that the game was great (which is equal to a 11 out of 10 in his language) and was officially his all time favorite. The game is more strict than Spore for PC, and has less time for "do what you want" and is more task-by-task style. The game takes you through a storyline in which blue and red rocks fall to a planet.
Summary: As a fan of the Spore (PC) game and having played it through, I wasn't sure what to expect with the Wii version, but here's my take on a decent addition to Spore: Graphics: The general gameplay graphics and sound effects are very cartoony compared to the PC version. It can certainly be appealing to a younger audience. The colors and graphics are smooth and well done.
Summary: My (almost)10 year old had a lot of fun playing this, and he also loved Spore on the PC. He did beat the game in what I would guess was about 10 hours of gameplay. We just bought it last Saturday, and he played some Saturday and some Sunday, and finished it up on Thursday. I was expecting it to last a little longer, but he seemed not in the least disappointed.
