Newsday Video Game Review: Spore

Newsday writes: "Spore is one of the most-talked-about video games in years, and it was masterminded by Will Wright, the same game developer who was behind the blockbuster Sims franchise. The Electronic Arts game lets people play god, tinker with a digital primordial soup and birth civilizations that conquer galaxies.

Spore is certainly ambitious, simulating nothing less than the entire evolution of a species, from single-celled microorganisms to interstellar explorers. Yet it doesn't inspire the sense of awe you'd get from, say, "2001: A Space Odyssey," just to name one pop-culture artifact covering similar territory."

The story is too old to be commented.
