    your an idiot voskhod, almost no one who was originaly interested in spore enjoyed what EA shat out, not only is it not science in a box as promised, it plays like a boring fucking MMORPG
    go back to your fucking wowtastic “kill 8 gynoids” missions, faggot.

    Spore is a game that was supposed to be all science, which would of been awesome as most people were hooked on that concept from the 2006 demo. Even Creature Creator was a good hook as we got a hands on experience on the mechanics of the game. But then it cam out and what did we get?

    A bright kids version of pac-man, a crap version of WoW, a cutsy Rise of Nations and Galactic Civilisations for idiots.

      I know that spore is a poorly made childish game, with the lack of pure natural graphics and awe inspiring adventures, but I have a feeling that there will be a new spore game dedicating it to science. newly improved graphics will make you think as if you are in the dawn of time and controlling life inself as if you are God himself. Not to worry, this game will be improved many times in the near future. I can’t wait!!!
