I got just about no sleep last night. Because I installed Spore, and played until around sunrise.
Game play is amazingly intuitive, especially if you have played Sims, SimCity, etc – but this is to be expected, considering the designer.
What I like about Spore is the fact that it brings all my favourite bits of games like Viva Pinata, Age of Empires and Sims 2 into one game that is still fun to play.
After only a couple of hours of play, I have progressed into Tribes, and I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me.
Creating the creatures are fun, and changing them as you go along is interesting, especially when you take note of how the evolutions affect their lives.
