    Fresh ideas and solid gameplay make Darkspore a winner

    Gameplay The basic setup of the game is you go from level to level chaining them together to receive better bonus percent for new items. Each level has a nice visual theme, and while the level layout is static, the en... Read Full Review

    Dungeon Crawler with no real character progression

    To cover the game really accurately would take a bit more time, but if you add all the time I spent in the beta I am pretty sure I can give you a fair idea. A standard dungeon crawler. Lacks story, makes up in gear. Cust... Read Full Review

    Darkspore has been receiving some pretty harsh criticism...but it's really not bad at all.

    I'm going to make this review very short and simple, covering 5 catergories: graphics, sound, gameplay, replayability, and customization. GRAPHICS: They are just as you would expect from a game that can be played on ... Read Full Review

    Addicting lootfest, great for Co-op sessions

    This is a game meant for co-op. 4 player is a enemy-stomping action-packed blast, but solo is a bore. The loot system is fantastic. The great pieces of gear you get for level rewards are great at directly stimulating the... Read Full Review

    A good RTS game, but something are missing...

    The graphics are good, the sounds are cool, the RTS is not bad, the characters are also cool. Over all the game is worth playing, but a bit overpriced, it might be worth to buy when it's like $34.99 for limited edition, ... Read Full Review

    I absolutely hated this game.

    It's been awhile since I've played a game this boring. It starts off with a great premise that's somewhat interesting but only goes sharply downhill from there. Let's get one thing straight from the get-go: this game ... Read Full Review

    Not a bad little game at all!

    Those that are bashing the game, i don't really understand why you are, take the game for what it is, not for what you are expecting it to be! That is a fun squad based RPG with loads of replay value and fun with fri... Read Full Review

    Looking for your Diablo III early fix? Look no further! Still, this game, like any, has its fair share of flaws.

    At 3 AM in the morning, a week or so ago, after getting back from a heavy round of drinking very expensive mixes (Along with having bought over 200 dollars in gaming peripherals, I decided to purchase Darkspore on Steam.... Read Full Review

    Fun arcade style - Diablo-ish mayhem

    This game had me confused at first as I thought it was going to be for the teeny-bopper generation. Well I took the chance after watching some You Tube clips Nd decided to try it out. Very nice graphics for starters. ... Read Full Review

    Full of Bugs..

    I like the game and played it for the first time BUT the BUGS... oh MY GOD..! I can't believe EA released a game so full of bugs. I think the character editor is the best feature and can be improved but the bugs frustrat... Read Full Review
