It's a shame that the customisation options are so limited. I think what a lot of people wanted was the ability to create your own hero just like in Spore. But all we can do here is change their gear and a few of their body parts. Hopefully the roster of 100 uh... creatures? to collect will be enough to satisfy everyone.
After playing the beta I got disappointed, I expected a lot more from this game, specially the character creator, that barely exists. Really what's Spore without a character creator?
