"We've all been reading about Spore for nearly three years now, and rightly so. It promises to be Will Wright's definitive God game, bringing together gameplay that's influenced by decades of games across five game phases where players will cradle life from its beginnings, right up until the colonisation of space. It's no surprise, then, that Wright originally wanted to call the game Sim Everything. His previous masterpieces include Sim City and The Sims, so why wouldn't he? Nevertheless, the name Spore has an equally appealing ring to it."
