Mmhmm, I completely agree with you, a horrible game lacking in fun, creativity, and entertainment. Its previews were lackluster as well, showing nothing of the games truly horrific controls, gameplay, and insignificant bluster.

and mushrooms.

I really haven't played it yet, but the previews got me really excited. I hope my piece of Shoes computer can handle it.

*****/***** 5 outta 5 :D Seriously this is a great game, it allows you to be however creative you want :D So far I have designed my cell, ate with that for a while then grew and continued designing etc. after that I finally got to add legs and move my species on land where I went from a 2D cell into a 3D creature (Which I also got to design) My original plan was to make some sort of spider creature but let me tell you, once you get to the designer any plans you have don't turn out well :haha: I ended up with some sort of human/bear/moose cross breed that was so very aggressive :D (Wiped out alot of species from the face of Sagios [my planet]) After running around killing things and eating and singing/dancing to one group of bug/slug/spider things I finally grew enough brain power to get half way in which I get a pack! My pack could only consist of 1 other member at the time so I ignored it for now, After running into an encounter with a "Land shark" (Created by some other player that was online the same time as me :P That's what is great about it always new things) That completely killed my guy (Which required me to go through birth again :haha:) I found a need for packs, when my brain power was full I got the other members and went hunting finally growing strong enough to evolve to the Tribal stage! :D Now in my opinion the tribal stage is one of the shorter ones but it is also very fun! First thing I did was design clothing and armor for my people by giving them some sort of skirt, shoulder pads and chest armor :D After that I gathered food for a while till another tribe appeared on the map! Soon after I made a torch hut where my people armed themselves with flaming torches :evil: I quickly dispatched of that tribe :haha: After that three more tribes appeared, all being stronger then me so I quickly made a wooden horn hut where my people grabbed instruments and gifts and allied two tribes, after that we all killed the last one and was ready to evolve to the Civilization phase :D In that phase I got to completely design my town hall (Which I made war like to suit my people) Then I designed a factory and house (No entertainment building because my people like war not plays :D) After that I design my very own tank (Which I made hover and have a giant missile gun! :haha:) I quickly took over the spice geysers (Money sources) and attacked the other civ's on my continent :D After that I got to design my own airplane and attack other continents (I never really did sea transportation :P Got lazy :haha:) Finally after that I was onto the space stage which I have yet to play (Because it was already late by then) I will finish this today when I play the space stage,

So far it is a great and fun game to play with some humor from the song and dance and sometimes fighting :P I recommend EVERYONE pick it up and play :P Hey, my computer is two years old and it worked great so there is no reason you shouldn't get it :haha: 5 stars out of 5 and 5 thumbs out of 5 :D

Yorick - I might suggest getting a better computer because the space stage tends to lag for me :haha: Too much for this peice of shoes computer ;) Anyways back to my review :P

I have quickly ran through the first few missions of the space stage but I have to say I love it! :D I love terraforming it's so fun and I ended up having to terraform this rather ugly planet that looked like a base ball :haha: I turned it purple and made it have orange trees :haha: I also love the fact that you can "Paint" planets by changing the atmosphere and terrain and water color :haha: It works well on those ugly planets ;) Also the game is just amazing in the fact that you can travel literally all through the galaxy and never face a loading screen :D You can zoom into a planet using the mouse wheel then rotate it to zoom out to galaxy view within seconds! It's so amazing what they have created here :D Currently I stopped due to me getting frusterated with my computer and the creatures I made :haha: I have started again in the cell phase and now am on the creature phase with an owl type creature that evolved from my original slug :P
Anyways to wrap up this review...:


Spore

Gameplay: Love it! 10/10 because it's so fun how you get to
move around the world and basically do whatever you want :D
Visuals: Not the greatest (And it's a well known fact if you
have been following this game ;)) But hey, they are still pretty
darn good! 8/10
Flow: The game seems to just flow perfectly from begining to
Space stage (Because there really is no end :D) without
anything feeling out of place :D 10/10
Computing: Depending on your computer it works flawlessly,
being able to zoom out from one planet to the galaxy view
with no loading screen or lag is amazing


Overall:
Great game that I recommend everyone picks up :D It's
a masterpeice really :D Go grab it from the shelfs and give
it a try ;)
10/10

Hmmm...

You and someguy are welcome to your oponions (though I cannot say I agree with you) but how in any sense of the word is it lacking in CREATIVITY??? The whole game is about CREATING your own race, growing it, CREATING a society or CREATING a tyranny (I heard you could rule other races by force too, :P) and using what you CREATED to prosper in this land/world/galaxy! I'm not going to argue with you on anything except what you said about CREATIVITY!!!
LOL... :P


PS, THX heart, just let me know when it's the final version, then your website/profile/etc. that the link giving credit goes to :D

Sorry I just saw this :shy:
I bought the 49.99 one with a 3$ warranty ;)
:o! I hope there are more :D:D:D :happydancing:
Although EA is famous for spamming "Expansion packs" which really require you to buy all of them for it to be worth it ;) :haha:

What did you mean in bold? You can play it online and offline although I have never tried the offline version, in online you "Download" creations from all over the world from different people! :D I'm going to make a guess that offline is purely the things that maxis has created which come with the game? Even so though Maxis has created ALOT! I always get their creations before anyone else ;) Although I got this one guys creation called an eye monkey and it made me ROFL because it was a monkey with giant eyes :rofl-smilie:

Emo - Well to put it frankly, yes :haha:

no no no it is purely fun it is an evolutionary game but has pretty much nothing to do with religion it is just a game

oh cuz I was gonna say I AM NEVER PLAYIN IT LOL (I AM VERY RELIGOUS)

funja
09-10-2008, 01:01:12
me to but in is sims games there is a family that are catholic but that is the only religous thing ever in one of his games i have ever saw not meant to be that way

Heartofthedark
09-10-2008, 01:02:18
Emo - Well like funja says it's just a game and has nothing to do with religion ;) But the theory of evolution they use is the one where a comet or some sort of object containing genetic (Or whatever it's called :P) Materials crashed into earth, and from that the materials inside the comet evolved into cells and organisms etc. creating life :P

all information from spore.com?info

Spore is Will Wright's (Sim City, The Sims) new masterpiece. Spore starts a player out as a single-cell organism swimming around in a primordial soup. As Will Wright explains it, this stage of the game is essentially like Pac-Man, and you basically devour microbes smaller than you while avoiding those that are larger. You can upgrade your cell by adding cilia, flagella, and other defense mechanisms in order to gain any advantage possible for a single cell. From there you'll move on to the "water world" phase of evolution. Your single-cell organism becomes a multi-cell organism. At this point, the gameplay switches from 2d to 3d but is still essentially the same: devouring the less fortunate and avoiding the bullies.Economical





Egg Hatchling
As time passes, you will be able to lay an egg and evolve further; rid yourself of fins and acquire legs. Once on land (should you choose to emerge from the sea), you'll find yourself a part of a rich world inhabited by other player-created creatures. Unlike traditional massively-multiplayer on-line games, you won't be squaring off against other players in real time competition. Instead, when a player creates a new creature it is saved to a master on-line server. Your world will be populated by creatures that will help bring balance to your ecosystem. In this way, you will experience the off-the-wall creations of other players without having to worry about being bullied.





Oh Behave Yourself
As Wright demonstrated at E3, you'll be able to teach your creature new behaviors by combining preexisting ones. A creature that knows how to eat can pick up food in it's mouth and drag it to another location, for example. The possibilities presented to the player in terms of creation are truly remarkable. To continue evolving, you must find a mate by emitting a mating call. What follows is romantic R&B music highlighting sweet love making.




Moldy City
You creatures will begin to band together once their brain has evolved far enough. At this stage of the game, the player must manage a tribe of the creature they created. Players can upgrade huts and add items to camps such as a campfire. Still, this is just the beginning of Spore. Before long, your mere tribe will be a full-fledge thriving city. With these upgrades in technology, players may customize their creatures further by adding additional upgrades. The cities themselves can be tweaked in almost any way imaginable. Players at this level of the game can build military machines and attack other cities if they should choose to.




UFO Spotting
Finally, the player's creature creation will reach a point in technology where they can create a UFO. With the UFO, the player can cruise around their planet "abducting content" such as other creatures or plant life. The UFO can also zoom out into outer space. Initial impressions of the game indicate that this is where the real fun begins. With the UFO, players can literally visit millions of other planets full of other player's creations. From the sounds of it, Spore is going to be a monumental game that empowers the average gamer with one heck of a creative tool.

Funja - You should venture out :P It's worth it ;)

By the way if you want some tips..


Do not do the mission "Declare war on another race"
Make trade routes
BECOME A RED SPICE TRADER, red spice is the easiest spice to obtain and the fastest so find an ally that buys red spice for a high amount and sell! My ally buys anywhere from 7000-16000 spore bucks per red spice so when I have 99 red spice and sell to him I make a quick million :haha:
Get interstellar drives ASAP
Do not start wars
Do not steal from another race or steal and make it up to them by doing missions


Edit: I FINALLY REACHED THE CENTER OF THE GALAXY!!!!!! It was worth it :D
