Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A good and creative introduction to online play

The creature creator lets you make basic decisions - how many legs/arms/eyes it gets, colour and size - but you also get to test its stomp/roar/dance from all angles, and take pictures. Some of these creations now populate the various planets on the full edition where much more happens (evolution, carnivore/herbivore choices, packs/tribes etc) but the creator is great for much younger kids starting out, as there is no starvation or eating of any animals in that one.

Fun and Simple

This is only part of the upcoming Spore game. The Creature Creator allows the user to create a wide assortment of monsters by putting together various body parts on a moldable body. It really isn't a game, so all you do is make and test your creation. There is no violence, language, or sexual content. It's great fun, and an activity everyone can enjoy on a rainy day. Enjoy!
