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.

SPORE is a game I adored in college.

Yes, that was 8 years ago.

There are games I play that are much, much older than 8 years that I still can play to this day and find no faults with.

Spore is not one of them.


At the time this game came out, it felt like an overambitious mess- but dammit, it was MY overambitious mess. I loved it, and I played it obsessively between classes.

I bought it a few weeks ago for 5$. I wish I had spent that somewhere else.

This game doesn't hold up. The creature creator is fun- it's interesting to see the horrible, horrible monsters you create stumble around awkwardly in the creature phase.

The Tribal phase is where it starts to hurt to remember this game. It's awful, antiquated, and at it's core- offensively simple.

Then, you get to the planet-wide "City" phase, which is equally frustrating. Pacifist/Religious route, even on the easiest setting, was painfully hard to micromanage due to the lack of intuitive controls- controls that are more than fine in RTS games that they were clearly trying to emulate.

The game has charm- it has a LOT of charm. Your creatures coo and chirp and growl and jiggle awkwardly in their little speechbubbles, and the level of customization was truly mindblowing several years ago.

Sadly, it doesn't hold up. It breaks my heart that I came back to this game with so much nostalgia, only to find that all the negative reviews back when it came out were sadly accurate. This game isn't fun anymore- I had fun with it when it came out, but it's not worth your time. Not even for five bucks, sadly.

sometimes could stop working several times in a day.
other than that, really nice and safe for my little brother to play (he is currently 10 y. o)

Also, please ban several words that possibly used for creature name. Such as : butt, buttsex, ♥♥♥♥, etc
It's okay under parental advisory, but still I don't think it's nice.

Thanks for making thing awesome game.

The game occasionally crashes. That is my only setback about this game. It's the perfect blend of create-your-own and open world simulation.
In the space stage, I traveled all the way to the center of the galaxy only to end up accidentally starting a war with the Grox. Woops.

SPORE is a very old game. It's very unique, friendly, and (against a lot of other opinions) executed very well. I remember pre-ordering the physical copy of the game as a kid. The first time I booted the game up was just mind blowing. An entire galaxy that's mine to control! I didn't care what others thought, it let my imagination run wild and showed me hundreds of hours of entertainment.
Spore is a game about imagination where the limits just keep expanding. As you progress through the game you'll be able to control a creature that you have thrown together, through the stages of evolution. Work hard to get your cell onto land. Dominate the other creatures with friendship or extinction. Take control of your tribe's continent. Unify the world's civilizations. Take control of the galaxy, one solar system at a time, and discover it's secrets. All of this can be done in a game of SPORE.
Feeling really creative? Make some friends and share your creations with eachother! To really put your creations to use, consider visiting the DLC store pages! You won't regret the extra hours and hours of gameplay, created by the community!

Really enjoyed spore. It came out many years ago, on my birthday and I had my dad get it for my present when I was younger. It was really a fun game, I enjoyed it a lot, and I enjoy it even better now that I have a better computer. The graphics are chunky, and that's just what makes it's style!

Good:
-------------------------------------------
+Make custom creatures
+Literally customize anything, you want it's toe to be huge, but the legs to be small? GO FOR IT.
+Runs basically on any pc, it's such an old game.
+Graphics look nice actually, on my Gx950 graphics card.
+Each mode is indepth, so you can get different endings and benefits depending on the path you took.
+You can technically upload your creations and download others.

Bad:
--------------------------------------------
+I havent personally been able to log into my EA account, so I play offline.

+This game isn't what people wanted it to be - but it's good for those who don't care what it was 'supposed' to be. My husband and I played this as young teens, and we enjoyed a lot for what it was.

+ Multiple ending types, and creature spawns can be good, but it can feel old after a while with the AI being similar each game.

♥♥♥♥ guys I don't know what to say.... I bought this game in like 2008 when I was 9 and plaed the HELL out of it!!! After not playing it for years I found out it was on Steam and bought it again just so I could look at it in my library. I don't know about No Mans Sky but Spore will always be the ultimate space simulator / crazy god game for me!!!! It really is an amazing game and I would recommend it to anyone!!
