Too Short For Extended Game Play
I Was anticipating something more challenging and fun when I bought this game, but sadly, I was able to beat this game in just two days, and i'm not even one of the best players. Basically you do different tasks in order to save your sick friend, Oogie from an alien bent on cross mutating different species. The graphics are very basic and nothing to brag about.Since the gameplay is so short, and you really only have a mere thirty levels to beat, I would save your money. if you are really interested in playing it, just borrow it from a friend or buy it, then pass it on. I have had Spore for a week now and already passed it on to four players, each taking about 4 to three days, which was useful because that saves your friends money on buying a game that sounded great but was really just a rip off.I love the Spore games, but I think this one was a little too easy, so if you would like a better version of this please purchase the computer version.
good game....for some
i bought this game the day it came out, and i do have to say, it looked interesting. when i opened the case, i was glad it came with a pretty beefy book on how to play, but when i popped it in, i was a little disappointed. The songs on the game usually repeat often, and the graphics were O.K( but, it was on the DS, so i didn't expect much.) and the character creation was pretty well put together, and was pretty easy to use. the storyline was really, really interesting, keeping you trying to guess what will come up next, or what body part you'll unlock! The game length is generally long, a couple of hours, and making monsters will keep you playing even after you beat the storyline. The game, all together is,well, pretty fun. But if you don't like childish things, do not buy this game, because i found myself chuckling at some of the names and what the characters said. If you do have a computer with at least 512RAM, and a good graphics card, i do recommend the computer version.
If you like a game where you have creative freedom then this the game. The DS is the only platform that i have been able to try it on so far, but this is a game that if you try to you can beat in just a few hours. I bought the game last night and in roughly 12 hours not trying to hard I've beat it. But i'm going through a second time to get all the parts and other items. Well enough on me and back to the game, i rather enjoyed the cartoony nature of the graphics it just gave it that lil something that you look for in a game to make you say wow that was different. Over all i'm happy with the game i just wish there was more to it, more content, more creatures, and more places to go in the game. Anyway if your looking for a game that you can mess around with for hours and that can make you laugh at the dumb things you can create then spore for the DS is the game for you.
This game is da bomb
I had wanted this game for about two weeks, and got it for my birthday. Some people say that the challenge is poor, but I think it is perfect. Even though it could have better graphics, (the graphics are sort of like Paper Mario) it is still one of my favorite games. The storyline is a spaceship comes and take Little Oogie, so you need to find body parts for your Spore creature, and battle ruthless creatures to get their nest, and sometimes when you befriend creatures, if you help them, they give you parts to the spaceship that it dropped. Like I said earlier, the graphics are a little rough, but they aren't too bad. It's like they are paper, but everything around them is 3-D. I'd say its pretty cool. I love this game because you can customize your Spore dude, and give him or her bio-powers. Some of the parts are da bomb, but some of them are kind of weird. But all in all, I'd say this is a totally awesome game. I love it and you'll love it I'm sure of it.
This game was quite enjoyable. In fact, I had a pretty fun time throughout the short length of the game. But the key word is short. This game wasn't very long at all, and once beaten, there isn't much incentive to replay the game. Of course, you can collect various parts throughout the game to create different Spore creatures, but other than collecting and mix-matching spore parts, there isn't much replay value in this game. All-in-all, this game was fair. It was fun while it lasted, but I sadly regret buying it for the price I did. However, the price has drastically dropped since then. The only question is, "Is it still worth your money?" I'd say maybe. If you're looking for a short, fun game to play for a little while, go for it. But if you really want to spend your money on great games, I'd say save your money and search for something better.
Interface & Control Ruin Game
Was very interested in this game when it came out as my PC is probably a bit light for the PC version. Guess I'll get that after I upgrade in a few months as this game didn't cut it.Nothing particularly offensive about the game from a graphics and music point of view- definitely geared toward younger gamers. My biggest complaints revolve around movement and the interface.Creature creator was poorly executed. A pest to paint individual parts instead of the whole and no comparison of how a new part is an upgrade over an old part. You need to remember your old part and compare values. Also difficult to edit more than one part at a time without exiting & re-entering creature creator.Movement control was poor- whether using the stylus or d-pad was hard to move where you wanted. Pressing the d-pad in a direction did not move you in that direction on the mini-map. Tutorial was a bit off as well. Had to reread the manual to realize how to attack!So, overall not pleased with this purchase. Will trade toward DQIV or Lock's Quest soon.
Does not deserve the criticism
This game is one of the best ds games ive ever owned.In fact this is one of the few ds games I would choose to play over most of my games for wii or 360.True the game is a little short,but it is easily made up for by the amount of creature parts you can unlock.
The Best Spore Game Ever
If you like making creatures, defeating creatures and making friends with creatures this is the game for you. In Spore Creatures you can find body parts that make you stronger and find super powers like leaf flurry, fire breath, stun, heal and shields. There are problems and puzzles to solve at each planet. The story is fun to follow. Several of my friends have this game also and they all like it as well. It can be played over to see if you can better you score or find parts that you missed. It is also fun to try out different combinations of body parts each time that you play to experiment with and discover the difference. If you like super powers and figuring out solutions plus doing battles and making friends this is the game for you.
this game is only good the first time you play through it. if you are renting it, it is good. do not buy
okay, here's a list of things good and bad about spore creatures. Bad parts short gameplay, bad storyline and repeating AI. Good parts Difficulty is good if on hard, amazing costumization for the Nintendo DS, the graphics are what you would expect for the Nintendo DS and you can play the game over and over and over, the biggest thing about the game that makes this game could is the creature creator portion of it. i believe that you can make nearly forty completely different creatures and yes you can name them. So, all in all I think that this game is good, you can play it for hours. You will love this game even more if you already have another spore game. The Spore Creatures game is a very good addition to your spore collection.
