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.

For the record, my hours with this game with the GA expansion are DISPROPORTIONATELY HUGE compared to what's being shown here. Like, 600+ hours.

Absolutely love this game, I never stop coming back to play it.
I will admit, when I first got this game, oh, 4-ish years ago, I was expecting a tad bit more out of it than I saw. Then again, Spore, in and of itself was an INCREDIBLY ambitious game in its early stages. It's not the perfect, all-encompassing game some, like me, might hope it to be, but it is incredibly fun and incredibly challanging on the higher difficulties, ESPECIALLY in space, which is pretty much nigh impossible to completely "finish", lest you have no life whatsoever. It's nice and kid-friendly with the cartoonish creature designs, and the quick gameplay up to the space stage is a boon for casual gamers. But for those of us seeking to conquer the galaxy, and get the real sense of action and adventure, the space stage has enough alien genocides, nuclear explosions, and planet busting for even the most hardcore 4X strategy gamer. It's an enjoyable game with a nice mix of everything and quite a few challenges mixed in. If nothing else, play it for the space stage; probably the best, least mundane part of the game.

The DLCs add some nice features as well; the new adventure feature in Galactic Adventures adds an interesting new level of complexity and depth to the already complex space stage, and makes nice use of the creature properties you all thought were going to be useless after the creature stage.

Side note, FINALLY managed to make a decent-looking human with the in-game parts - a painful ordeal, to be sure.

Oh, and make sure not to ♥♥♥♥ off the Grox if you like your ♥♥♥ where it is.

I originally bought this game to try to relive the nostalgia I had watching(and ocasionally) playing this game, but now 10 years later and a computer than is more powerful that PC's it was originally recommended with, it crashes every 30 min and the visual glithches makes it really hard to play with. I may have 6 hours in, but half of that time my PC was processing what made it crash. I would recommend that you just directly avoid this game, it may have been fun back in the day, but now it's so old it actually works worse than release.

'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

I was really young when this game first released, and I got it on release date without even knowing it. I played countless hours of it on disc, but when I saw it was on Steam, I bought it without a second thought.

10/10 great game!

This game is so amazing in just about every way. The Creature Editor is clever and innovative, the Phases feel just long enough to keep each section short and sweet, and the gameplay never gets old. Here, in the perfect game, there is still one huge issue: No Sequel.

This game is one of the most fun games ive ever played! I bought the CD version of this game 8 years ago (Holy ♥♥♥♥ im getting old D:) and since then ive always had this nostalgia every time I play it, it brings good memories back of me coming from school and running to the computer to play and try to conquer the plant and later the UNIVERSE! And its not just fun but also really good for lil kids to learn about evolution without being conffused lil ♥♥♥♥♥es about it! 10/7 would 1v1 an Epic creature again.

This game is my childhood. The fascination I have always had in evolution and societies is shown in spore. I have played spore and seen many species grow and go down different paths and the customization always makes it a different ride. Would recommend 7.5/10
