It's OK

It's a fun game. I like to play.

Great to play, not so educational

It's a wonderful game that gives an example on how life could have evolved, but the education is very iffy. First off, evolution doesn't happen every time you dance under a circle of hearts, you cant choose what mouth you have, and well, you cant just grow 6 arms in 5 minutes. Of Course, I absolutely love the game. It's fun, cool and it's a fun game. It's a great "God Game"

Great game, when it first came out i was hoping for a little more than it gave me but it is still great! There is nothing bad about it exept for a little blood.

I love spore. It is so addicting, fun and awesome, that you can't stop playing it! The game has some violence, blood and a little bit of gore, but it all lives in the chain of life. Players can eat other creatures, which shows the gore.

Fun, but it's not science!

It is an amzing game, but unlike many its because of it's creative value. What it lacks in its simple gameplay it more than makes up for in its creators. I, however, do not think it represents science, and they should stop talking about how its so scientific, and start showing off the creators! Violence: In cell stage, there is watered down blood, but you can play through without harming anyone. In creature stage, you can hunt, but its not very violent. In tribal stage, you can fight with spears, axes and fire, but no blood. In civilization stage, you fight with vehicles, but you can see panicked citizens in the cities under attack. In space stage, you can kill cities, tribes, and even individual creatures. Sex: Dancing under hearts, and some hippies mentions pregnancy. Langauge: None. Social Value: You can be peaceful, or violent. Eduacational Value: No science as you mentioned ther was. Commerciallism: None, but the CEO of EA has mentioned an interest in ingame advertising. Drugs and alchohal(sp): None.

This game is absolutely wonderful! But when I try to use the outfit designer, the game crashes. I cannot play this game anymore, becuase when I try to load or start a new game, it instantly crashes--even though I have a top of the line $8,000 gaming computer. This game is all about evolution, so I think it has a great ed. value. I give this a 5/5, even though I can't play it ever again.
