Print Edition writes about Spore:
From the article:
"Bits and pieces of Spore have been previewed and demonstrated for a while now, including a set of creature creation tools that became a hit earlier this summer, and we knew that its timeline stretched for billions of virtual years, rewinding to the earliest forms of life and then eventually fast-forwarding to a galaxy-spanning empire.
The only question was whether it would fit together into a coherent whole, and that was answered soon after I completed the pain-free installation process, when a menu came up with three options: Play, create and share. In every way, from its structure to the messages players take away, Spore is summed up by those three words, making them good road signs for this introductory tour."
