Don't see much reason to keep playing honestly.

I'll probably play with it again some time, but its not like there is any different way to play the game. Its all the same. Things just look different.

I'm still surprised at how easy it was to beat the game by skipping over stars and flying straight to the center of the galaxy without fighting.

The game was worth playing, mostly because of the Space stage, even if it was short lived, but I'm very glad I didn't pay full price for it.

Nope. I recently cleaned up my PC and it was one of the first to go. Gonna give it to my sister to try out. Not really phased if I never see it again.

Most over hyped game for me this year. MGS, TFU, Saint's Row 2, all lived up to their hype, hell even The Sims 2 expansions do. But Spore... ::

No, Frontlines. Mainly because it's not out yet.

Will Wright doesn't do The Sims anymore, he did the first game, but after that the expansions and follow up games were Tim LeTourneau and even now I think he has moved on.

I agree Spore did fall short of Wrights claims and perhaps even his own expectations.

Spore patches

Spore Patch 5.1


To get the patch, simply launch Spore. PC players will need to have EADM installed.

If you didn't install the EADM when you installed Spore, you can download it here. This patch is available for PC. Mac users should check back soon.


Fixed issues:
■Object orientation near water or lava can appear incorrectly when Playing or Testing an Adventure.
■Fixes a crash in the Building Creator when holding Ctrl or Shift and moving a part.

■Asymmetry is now available for creatures! Details on new Asymmetry features for Creatures and Vehicles can be found here.
■This patch fixes several crashes in Space Game.
■Many tuning improvements to Space Game, including reduced disaster rates at all levels of difficulty, adjustments to Hard Mode, increased limits on concurrent trade routes, as well as changes to tool unlocks for the Knights.
■Creator Lineage appears correctly for all creation types shared after this patch is installed.
■Cheat is included that permits Creators to export creatures in Collada format for use in Maya. Creators must acknowledge and accept a Tools EULA to perform this operation. An additional cheat has been provided to enable highest quality textures to appear on vehicles, where it is supported by user hardware.
■Fixed a problem where creations would go missing if a user quits the game in any way while downloads are in progress.
■Fixed a bug where achievements were disappearing.
■Fixed a bug where some Sporepedia cards had corrupted backgrounds.
■Fixed a problem in Space where some Grox planets were unreachable.
■YouTube movies now publish as public
