Epic in scope, but pitted with shallow elements, Spore is undoubtedly destined for greatness with a formulae that will hit the target demographic unerringly.

Spore is a carefully constructed piece of programming. As a game it is the sum of its parts and the linking of those parts that holds the intrigue for Spore. Given the linkage of the parts is totally of your creation, it is this that overshadows what could be seen as a grouping of shallow experiences."
