Spore (Galactic Edition)
WindowsYet, while Spore is an amazing product, it's just not quite an amazing game. I can't help but feel that Spore is ambitious and memorable, but I also admit that, save for the cool Space Stage, there's not a lot of depth here. Rookie gamers are going to feel at home here, but veteran gamers may feel like they need more. Still, Spore proves to be one of the most unique products in recent memory, one that reaches for the stars and ends up giving us a universe in a box.
WindowsI’m not really disappointed in what the game offers as much as disappointed in what was promised in marketing and then completely failed to deliver. The graphics of the game are stylish and well done and it does have a high degree of entertainment value in its early stages, as well as offering replay for those who have the wish to explore different creature development paths. The vehicle and building construction interfaces, while flawed, are fun to use -- like breaking into your first big box of crayons. If you are in the mood for a lighthearted and colorful game with a kind of “genre du jour” feel and a few minor life lessons (but little depth), then this is it.
