Variety Reviews Spore

"Spore" is a game about evolution that could use more intelligent design. Originally referred to as "SimEverything," this new property from "The Sims" creator Will Wright features a brilliantly intuitive creation tool that lets players make their own life forms, vehicles, buildings and even spaceships. Rather than match the freedom in the gameplay, however, "Spore" forces players to use their creations in a series of levels that are derivative and dull. A big launch seems assured given the hype and mainstream press coverage, but if EA wants a franchise, it will need to find more for all those crazy new species to do.

The story is too old to be commented.
