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.

It's fun at first, but it lacks good end-game content.

The cell stage is mildly entertaining while you decide what kind of life-form you want to grow up to be (though I guarantee you'll pick Omnivore if you can help it).

While it's a matter of survival in your animal form, the game really feels fresh and new. In fact, I would've liked it more if the animal stage was a lot longer. The way you interact with other animals, the way you take on larger creatures or even epic monsters, the migration patterns of your herd and exploring the wide world is really fun and really engaging.

But after the animal stage, the game becomes a very basic, very lackluster real-time strategy game. The tribal and civilization stages are nothing more than mash-ups of Age of Empires and Civilization, the only bonus being that you get to design your stuff. There's nothing here that you haven't seen before, from three-choice politics to point-and-click control of armies comprised entirely of a single land vehicle type that you will no doubt convert to aircraft as soon as you can and have nothing but an entire small fleet of aircraft due to them not being limited as to where they can travel.

But the biggest letdown was the space stage. Instead of starting at one vessel and working your way to commanding a whole fleet with which to explore and conquer as you see fit, you're stuck with a single ship occassionally accompanied by a few brainless AI ships who are utterly useless against the more powerful space empires and tend to die pretty quickly. Oh, sure, you can upgrade that one ship, but there's no real sense of progress being made.

The graphics aren't that great, with everything looking about as well polished as that old CG television show Reboot, just with improved animation. If the textures and shapes were a bit more complex it might stand out.

I'd recommend this game only if it's on sale or free for a weekend, because it really isn't worth paying full price for this. It has enough juice for about 1 playthrough, but afterwards I really can't see any reason to go 'round again except to make different choices that will ultimately lead to the same result. But if you take the path of least resistance, you'll probably end up making the same choices each time.

I absolutely love Spore, and I have since 2011. I decided to download this game after many years on my Windows 8 and it runs perfectly. Still works and does not crash. The Steam convertion for it was great.

Thanks,

It's a great game. But $20 is a little bit pushing it.

Well, there are tons of sales, and as I'm writing this there's one right now, so you might want to wait for one.

Gameplay:
Evolving you creature is something I found super fun. The graphics are really nice and the animals are cute....most of the time...

I also love the feature that your behavior effects your reputation as a species, you might be a vicious killer, or a very social creature that likes friends.

Unfortunatly, personally I find the extreme change of gamplay a little boring. It starts off as you evolving, killing or befriending other creatures, and eating them or plants. Then it locks the way you look and that's kind of sad, transforming it into a full on tactical birds-eye view of your planet, defending off enemies, and eventually going into..space?

So I see what to developers were doing, a little cell in the ocean to advanced beings in space, but it just didn't seem all that interesting to me at that point.

Depending on what you like, it has an ok replayibility level, but I like going into create and making my own cool animals.

If you like to have a LOT of freedom in how you create a character, this is a wonderful game for you. I've always had a lot of fun with Spore. Creature stage is definitely the most fun, but no matter how you approach the game you'll find a way to make it work for you. Definitely worth taking for a spin!

The company who made this game also made the sims. This is an attempt to branch off, and is a good try. Will this game ever mesure up to the sims? Unfourtanatly no, but thats because the sims is so great and appeals to us cynical controling, power craving idiots. I still do like the game for its creativity and fun, there are some sequences that can get a little stale and boring, however every time i play this game, either with friends or myself, it always leavs me laughing like a lunatic, Just like sims. Its still good, but its stuck under the huge shadow of the sims, and i just wanna say this game is a great find.

An interesting and fun game, Spore really exceeded my expectations. It's fun, interactive, and a totally great way to pass the time.
When I'm feeling stressed out, Spore is my go-to game. Being such a light and simple game, it manages to help me relax and have a good time without frustrating me or getting too emotionally heavy. As someone that loves to create fictional worlds and species, watching my creations come to life is wonderful!
If you're looking for a relaxing but fun game, then this is the game for you.
