So far I love it. And I just got to the civ stage. I'm going to be bold and make a sweeping generalization that alot of people will be too stupid to "get" this game. It's really quite brilliant.

There's no more intellectually lazy argument than donning the mask of intellectual superiority yourself without justification.



"'Casual games' are something the 'Game Industry' invented to explain away the Wii success instead of actually listening or looking at what Nintendo did. There is no 'casual strategy' from Nintendo. 'Accessible strategy', yes, but ‘casual gamers’ is just the 'Game Industry''s polite way of saying what they feel: 'retarded gamers'."

I completly disagree... it's also exactly the game I expected it to be.

Perhaps because I followed the game closer however.



& Yeah same. Im loving the space stage. They should allow you to have more than 1 ship though, I'm on my quest to the center of the universe and then all fo the sudden I get attacked, wtf am i supposed to do? Also as stated above, I hate missions which tell me to go to some place and then not tell me where that place is.

Strangely enough, I find the building stuff parts more interesting than the actual game. I spent 1 hour making my mayor's house (a big nasty spiky tower).

The tribal stage was really terrible but the civilization is better.

I think that the game has a lot of potential to become a franchise with individual more specific complex games such as Spore:Civilization.

Hmm I think I'll wait on this game then, sounds like it was running way over production time and budget so they narrowed down the scope a bit, although for the average gamer it certainly sounds easier to get into than most civilization style games.

Out of curiosity, who here loved The Sims but dislikes Spore?

^ Well I mean think about it. They won't ship the game with warcraft, diablo, and civilization, that would take them good 15 years to make. Sure that'd probably be the BEST game ever created and all but it just isn't possible.

I agree that there is poor transitioning as mentioned in the OP. For example, at the end of the creature phase, I gave my creature a bunch powerful parts because I had the DNA or whatever to buy them. But wait... once I pressed the evolution button to the tribal phase nothing about the creature i designed mattered... at all. All that really effects you from phase to phase is how you interact with other organisms/creatures/tribes/civs.

It's still very fun and enjoyable. It's not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination. I just don't understand why they give the player this immense level of customization when it becomes irrelevant so quickly.

I liked The Sims at first but got bored quickly with it.

I like Spore and will probably play it more than The Sims but not all that much. For me the best PC game is still Civilization 4 (I must have spent 80-100 hours on this game).
