What Gamespot Users have to say about Spore

  • User Rating 8.5

    Maxis have yet again produced an excellent game, but there are some slight downsides.

    Rated on August 16, 2009 by maxismc

    Spore is one of those games where you will find your eyes glued to the screen in a world of your own. From the little, wriggly creatures of the Cell Stage to the proton missiles of the Space, Spore is...

    Spore lets you do an extremely wide variety of things, and even after the fun ends, you'll in time, be left wanting more

    In spore, you can literally conquer everything from a puddle of water to an entire galaxy (though the latter takes a LOT of time.) There are 5 stages of gameplay: cell, creature, tribal, civilizati...

    Repetative game with a limitless charater designer.

    Rated on August 27, 2009 by dcarver

    Good news is you can design your own character/creature. This effects stats and some different abilities. The designs and colors you can use are unbelievable. And you run across other unique creatu...

    I was up all night before the first day of school playing this game. Bad idea, but its that addicting.

    Rated on August 31, 2009 by chickenhide

    When this game came out, I though "meh, the creature creator was kind of fun, but I bet the full game will be disappointing." Well just today, I went out and bought the game and I'm very glad I did. T...

    Spore, Great game See why

    Rated on September 07, 2009 by Drako551

    Spore is a game which is pretty good but not too good though, but still a mind blowing game to play. But the thing that drags me into playing Spore and any other Spores are the creators. You can spend...

    A little bit repetitive.

    Rated on September 07, 2009 by Cvan424

    I remember how before 3 years i heard of upcoming game called Spore. I was curious and look for it and really liked it. The screenshots and videos looked awesome and promising. Many people kept repeat...

    Warning<br /> This game may cause: Addictiveness, Excuses, "Just one more minute" gameplay, and a lot of fun

    Rated on September 08, 2009 by Crawfo720

    I am warning you: this game will suck out your living soul. I am losing all of my social factors, staying up till 4 am, getting late for everything, and in love. I really suggest that you get someone ...

    This game is overly ambitious and shows that a lot of time was spent in the making of the initial game, less in later.

    Spore, How I loved you in the young start. When you were nothing but a single cell organism feeding off of the smaller more vulnerable peers. Then you grew, you became a land loving thing of speed,...

    This game is like someone opened up my head and found out exactly what game I wanted to play for the rest of my life

    Rated on June 14, 2012 by darkshadows9776

    I didn't expect this game to be much when I heard about, but I decided to try it out anyway. Starting with the cell stage was fun, it's pretty much a top down roamer where you eat meat and/or plants s...

    It's an ambitious game indeed with hours of potential game play available but at times does not feel "alien".

    Rated on June 16, 2012 by LettuceCone

    Spore, from the second you start it up has you gripped with its charm. There's no doubt the characters and creations you create in Spore are full of charm, and it spawns these great stories you play t...
