Gamereactor UK: Darkspore preview

Can Maxis rebound from Spore and Will Wright's departure from the studio? Gamereactor has gotten a bit of quality time with Darkspore...

"My main concern with Darkspore is the design, while it's obviously no Diablo I'm not sure the look and feel of Darkspore stands out enough. The characters reminds me of Lego Bionicle, and the universe comes across as anonymous. So on the one hand it's good that we're not getting another fantasy action-RPG, but on the other hand I'm not sure the science fiction universe Maxis have created warrants the same kind of devotion that say a Diablo or Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance gets from its fans. The jury is still out on that one, but regardless of that - Darkspore is something those of you who await Diablo III should keep an eye on."
