MacApper has posted a new review of Spore, Will Wright's latest god sim which allows players to guide a single celled organism from the primordial pools of a single planet to the galaxy swirls of interstellar space. MacApper gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.
From the review:
Setting aside all the minor quibbles, Spore is a game to be appreciated and admired as an adventurous step forward in procedural game design and large-scale mechanics. It is ultimately an ambitious and successful science project, and should be understood as such. Having said that, actually playing through Spore can be tedious and unfulfilling at times specifically because it feels more like a science experiment than a coherent gaming experience.Click over to the link below to read the rest of the review.
MacApper: Spore Review
To wrap up, even with its truly brilliant art direction, impressive sound design, and compelling concept, the fundamental fact of the matter remains that Spore is marketed as a video game, not an experiment in gaming technology, and the experience of playing through the fragmented sections can be unsatisfying, disjointed, and tedious – words which should not have to be used to describe something that’s meant to be fun.
