SPORE = Boring game with cartoony graphics I tried it a little in my cousins PC and i did not like it...

It deserves a score 7.0 for me and not anything above that

Anyone else think Spore is 4 demos and a Space Sim duct taped together??

Well hell, by you all's standards Sid Mier's Pirates! was 10-15 mini games stapled together with a map so you can choose which one to do.

Fact is you can't play 1 stage of spore and single it out. It's a complete game, singling out a single stage and reviewing it is the same ass me picking up Half-Life 2 and choosing only to review the Physics puzzle elements of Half-Life 2. I mean those puzzles were really good at the start then they got really boring 5 minutes in.

You tried the game a 'little' (I assume this means one stage) and declared it boring? Try playing the game right through.

 

@Gebx

Essentially yes, but they all last about the right amount of time for it to be entertaining in my opinion. Apart from tribal which is rubbish.

Too bad Spore is not a crappy game though. Spore has great chances of being GOTY 2008.

 

 

If Hell freezes over this year, yes. But really, the game is good, but, come on.

It's not, and will not be, one of the best game this year. Too many AAA titles coming out. Spore is just... good.

I agree. We'll see in the future the compete versions of those games which I won't get. I just got the game and I rather play Civilization 4 that I played 10 000 times than Spore.



How many cups of darkness have I drank over the years? Even I don't know...

just good? Spore is a marvel of design, making every phase important and  part of a greater cause. The integration of player as a god into the evolution of species and still being accessible to the average person makes it a success in both fun and sales. The casual aspect won't tire most people if they ever replay the earlier stages a second or third time.

So you expected Spore to be 5 full games?! That would make it even more expensive than GTA IV!! I'm still not sure how people can still say Spore's early phases are bad because they're simplistic... that's just stupid, Spore is supposed to be a Life Simulation game, and in the Cell, Creature and Tribal phases you are playing a primitive species with very limited intelligence... were you expecting your creature to give lectures, train an army or build schools in those phases?

The fact is, many people will likely return and replay those phases because they're accessible AND fun.

And Spore is NOT a Strategy game, so why compare to Civilization IV? It's like people complaining the Gran Turismo series is crap because it's not as realistic as Racing Simulation games like GTR and RACE.

 



wtf, this sounded like more of a great review under the guise of criticism.

do you not understand that the creation system is procedurally generated, a concept that never leaves the game but is merely used in different ways. procedural generation is almost unconstrained in it's possibilities, and it does it on the fly with very little cpu power needed. that is an unbelievable feat considering the myraid of franken-puters on the market and in homes.

you barely talk about the best part of the game.

you critisize the transitioning even though, imo, the game is about evolving, not about playing the same period for a long time.

imho, the stages lasted too long and were repetative, why would you want to do the same thing over and over.

seems like you would be one to play the sims and then be like wtf they turned into an adult in an instant even though in game time it's been 20 years, and they never aged until a second ago and jumped 10 years. (wtf i pay for things to slowly age over time but i can't afford to pay for a computer to handle 4d....)
