They definitely need an auto-save feature. When I moved to the Tribal stage I was having problems edge scrolling because I have dual monitors. I had alt-tabbed out of the game fine several times earlier, so I thought I could just alt-tab, disable the secondary, and keep on going...

I should have known better. It crashed, of course. I couldn't believe it hadn't autosaved any of my progress since the Tidepool stage.

No. you don't play with others. Their creations appear in your game, but the AI controls it.

Spore hasn't crashed for me yet either, running Vista 64 with the below setup.

I love the cell stage, I wish it was longer!

I'm on tribal now, but since I suck so bad at RTS games (even this one) I'm sorta running around doing random stuff. I'm probably gonna get pwned by someone soon.

Finally got to the space stage and it's pretty cool. It feels like Star Trek, exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilzations and destroying them with my laser beam! And there seems to be an almost unlimited number of worlds to explore, with user created content adding variety. This could get addictive.


The creator toolset is pretty robust, but I can't wait for more stuff to play with. Knowing Maxis and EA, there will be a couple hundred expansion packs for it. Maybe even smaller DLC stuff via the EA downloader. I can see this game getting more expensive.

Pretty good game, and I love the artwork and graphics.

those are from India, could it be currency exchange difference.

but be aware that in past EA and other companies denied online service if they found out that game registered was bought in another country.
