About This Game



From Single Cell to Galactic God, evolve your creature in a universe of your own creations.
Play through Spore's five evolutionary stages: Cell, Creature, Tribe, Civilization, and Space. Each stage has its own unique style, challenges, and goals. You can play how you choose — start in Cell and nurture one species from humble tidepool organism to intergalactic traveler, or jump straight in and build tribes or civilizations on new planets. What you do with your universe is up to you.
Spore gives you a variety of powerful yet easy-to-use creation tools so you can create every aspect of your universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even starships. While Spore is a single-player game, your creations are automatically shared with other players providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play.

Features

  • CREATE Your Universe from Microscopic to Macrocosmic — From tide pool amoebas to thriving civilizations to intergalactic starships, everything is in your hands.
  • EVOLVE Your Creature through Five Stages — It's survival of the funnest as your choices reverberate through generations and ultimately decide the fate of your civilization.
  • EXPLORE Other Players' Galaxies — Will your creature rule the universe, or will your beloved planet be blasted to smithereens by a superior alien race?
  • SHARE with the World — Everything you make is shared with other players and vice versa, providing tons of cool creatures to meet and cool places to visit.

I got Spore thinking it was going to be a great game.

Little did I know that a while back Maxis decided that they were going to permanently be moving the servers for the game, which ment that any of the online features were gone.(Thats kinda my own fault should have looked into it.)

But even without the online features it should still be good am I right...
No.

The game can be fun at first but eventually it gets boring and tedious, because no matter what each time you play a new game practically everything that happened in the last play through will happen in this one.
Now that isnt a problem for some games but for a game like this there should be things that change each playthrough.

And frankly at least if your a guy(I don't know if girls would do this.) you just end up making giant phallic shaped monster.

All in all in my opinion Spore is not a good game, and thats all it is an "opinion" these are my personal thoughts on the game.

If your still interested and dont mind spending the money on it you should try it out and form your own opinion.
At the very least you will not have played it for more than 2 hours and will not have owned it for more than 14 days before realizing if you like it or not so you can get a refund.

I hope my review helped.

Spore. Nice game. You grow, kill, eat, destroy. It's your own animal. Your own world (eventually).

Average quotes:

"Hey wanna be my- AH HELP MEEEEE."

"Imma eat you. Eat you- oh, nevermind feast is over RUN."

"Come my cute little..." *Mutant comes and eats it.* "Oh......"

"Let's swim!" *Out comes the sea monster...*

"I declare... WAR!"

"NUKE EM GOOD!"

"Were going on a trip, on our only rocketship! Zooming through the gaxalies. Little..?"

Some Logic:

+1 speed + +1 speed = 1 speed...

No eyes, can still see.

No legs, floats!

You don't need legs or eyes, but you NEED a mouth?

Little like 1 inch animal hunts you and eats you.

About 3 minutes is 100,000 years.

You always lay the egg.

Things you have to know about this game:

Its hard.


Overall, Spore was a great game and I enjoyed it much. :)

'SPORE' is a game where you start off crash landed from a meteor into a planet and you're trying to grow from your tiny bacteria to a large galactic nation. You play through multiple stages and choose how your civilization progresses.

Pros:

-You can play this through more then once and will get a different outcome
-You get to customize nearly EVERYTHING to your liking
-Can keep you occupied for hours
-Runs well


Cons:

-Some evoloution stages are extremly short
-Galactic stage is the longest by far and I wished the others were made longer
-No autosave so if the game DOES crash you're doomed

EA has done nothing - once again - to help get it's multiplayer servers online for new users. I downloaded this game simply to play it with my friend, and I am currently unable (or unaware) of a method for my friend and I to play together.

Thank you EA for ruining my multiplayer experience once more.

With that said, this game is great singleplayer but, y'know, have fun playing with yourself, ♥♥♥♥♥♥.

This game is amazing and is made for creative (and not so creative) minds. The ability to be god for an evolving species is amazing and I've played it for hours. Even without galactic adventures or creepy and cute it's amazing and I know this because I have neither, just the game. So basically what I'm saying is if you want to be god or just have some dumb fun creating funny creatures buy this game

WARNING!!!

Trying to register this game seems to be a complete waste of time, EA's garbage registration just keeps looping telling you to go back to help.ea.com, you go there, manage your account, try to register and it gives you the same message telling you to go back to the site you just came from (help.ea.com). Trying to register from within the game will always error (go check forums) and nothing ever seems to be done about this.

Now before you start WWIII with me for leaving a negative review, I just want to say I love this game; I just have some big problems w/ it that make the game very.... I don't know... unenjoyable. So here's the actual review;

REVIEW: When I first started playing this game, I loved it to death. I admitingly created way to many characters at the start and the cell stage was one of my favorites and extrememly fun to replay it as a carnivore or omnivore or herbivore. But, then there was the tribe stage which was sort of glitchy and tedious. Creatures that I needed to hunt for food disappearing and a ****ing Epic spawning on my tribe. But it was still fun. But then, space stage. This stage is so boring, tedious, and confusing. It also doesn't help that the space ship looks like **** because you designed it with very limited items. Which brings me to my next problem; the builder or whatever it's called. There's such a god awful limited parts that my creature ends up looking A. Ugly B. Weird C. Creepy. You CAN'T make a cute creature unless you're really good at making Spore creatures. Which is sort of ****ty because it's the design you have to stick with. And 90% of the time it's going to look off. Also, I know there are expansion packs but I shouldn't have to pay anythiung additional to make a proper creature if the creature is the whole point of the game. The Creature Stage is the only one I can replay over and over and over, but the other stages had no replay value whatsoever. So that's just my opinion, there are many good things about this game that probably out weigh the bad but that doesn't mean that you should have things to solve your problems with money such as expansion packs. But that's just me. You think what you want.

Unlike my other reviews this is a real review!

So this was the first game i ever played. I played this when it first came out before it was on steam and had lots of fun. This game introduced me into the cancer of video games. Honestly I love this game and even after all the years the game still looks really good and is very fun. I highly recomend this game.

10/10

Step One - Agar.io
Step 2 - Make a creature that looks like it had deepthroated 10,000 kg of nails and then simultaneously had its bowels exploded and then casually turned itself inside out.
Spep 3 - Kill everything or be friends with everything
Step 4 - Have your tribe become a warmongering force that elimates everything on the country
Step 5 - Realize there are other powerful speceis out there and contemplate your mistakes
Step 6 - Realize you didnt actually make any and once again kill everything on the planet.
Step 7 - Go into space get bored and restart
420/69 wud god agin

i wish they would update it or make another one like spore 2 with extra new parts and new food source like piscivore means it eats only fish which should be added.

so im just saying make a 2016 version something amazing like size growth and mabye instead of the civilization machines hull standing still it can like walk like its trying to walk so its more realistic. at least add cool stuff and i hope they make another version or just update the game. the developers dont know how awesome this game is.



Bring Back SPORE!!!

...what is there to be said about EA? They've bought almost every game company except, Sony, Konami, Nintendo, and Microsoft. However, even though they are infomus for making for making bad games, there are some good ones that have come from their efforts, and spore is no exception! The stages, while they can be a little bit frusterating at times, are really good! Excet for the space stage which sucks! But the rest of the game is really good, especally the parts where you get to make stuff, those parts are awesome!
