1.0 out of 5 stars Save your cash, 12 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Spore (Mac/PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
The game is repetitive, the first few stages go by quickly and are just a prelude for a space age game, nothing more. The idea of 'evolving' your creature is bogus, your DNA stops being of any importance by the tribe/civ stage and only determines consequences, lame limitations of your race. by the Civ stage, there is little 'evolution' left and becomes a poor civ game if anything, where you make vehicles to farm spice or kill others, the creature is but a graphical gimmick. The space age is a repetitive lame game that has you going about the galaxy saving other races that have plenty of defences but chooses to call you up, no matter how many trade routes or alliances you make, the growth of your civilization does not increases 'your' wealth (so much for evolution, it turns into a space ace game, bad at that too). The game forces you to design convoluted buildings that play little if no real part on the gameplay and that you will not be able to see up close unless you go into the colony and zoom in all the way. You travel the universe with one sad ship, which can be designed galore but whose design has no effect on what the ship can do (no matter how many weapons you add to it in the design process, you only get to use one, and not any of those you choose, why let me design them then?)

Overall, it is made up of several games weakly intertwined, it is miss sold as an evolution game, it is not, it incorporates elements of it for the first 30 minutes of gameplay, if anything, then it becomes a very bad civ game. I'd take the Sims any time, now that was well crafted from inception.
