This review is from: Spore (Mac/PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Spore feels like several different games haphazardly glued together and boy does it show. The problem is that you're far of better getting a game which each section of spore tries to emulate, because they do it better. For example the tribal phase is basically a rip off of a extremely dumbed down and ridiculously easy Age of Empires. Another major issues with spore is that your actions don't have consequences, for instance should you drag yourself the space stage, without beating yourself to death with your own keyboard, you'll find the way you developed your creature in earlier stages suddenly have no impact on gameplay, in fact you'll rarely even seen your creature as your perpetually locked in a spaceship. But dont worry then you have the horrible space combat and awful planet terraforming.
In summary spore tries to copy many good games and in the end fails miserably and i haven't even mentioned the horrible DRM but to sum it up; ITS HORRIBLE! What i will give spore credit for is the creature creator which is mildly amusing, for about 2 hours tops. Just another horrible EA game with a horde of pointless overpriced DLC content with treating customers like crap as long as the moneys still coming in.
