Wow. I didn't know you were able to play pre orders that hadn't arrived.

I'm into the tribal stage and wow, it's a whole new game. It's now less of a RPG and more of a RTS. I even have a cool little pet of the Minosaur I befriended in the creature stage. He protects my babies and food as my tribe go to war.

I give the game an 8, very impressive little title, lots of fun suprisingly.
I'm at tribal stage & i found myself playing it for hours last night!

I'd give it a solid 8 too.

I'm a little pissed right now. I spent 4 hours on the tribal stage, just wiped out those ****ing green dicks and the game crashed! It was a BSoD but I dunno if it's my PC or the game. My PC hadn't crashed in a very long time, then again it's been weeks since I rebooted it. Still lost 4hrs, but I don't mind replaying it actually. Can do a do over.

It's a great game, and a little side note, as it uses EA Downloader for the piracy check you can install and run it on upto 3 PCs no issues. Strange to see EA doing this.

Wow that is pretty strange.

That's great to hear though. My sister would definitely like to play this on her laptop if I bought it.

Which reminds me. How does the game perform in the different stages? My sister's laptop has a Turion X2 1.8Ghz, 1Gb (maybe 2Gb, I can't remember) of ram and geforce 7050 video. It runs the creature creator fine, but it takes a while for all of the texture layers to load.

I'm sure its slower with lots of creatures running around.

Game gets repetitive after tribal stage. To a point where I can't be bothered designing different houses and so forth. To much diversity in a game can harm it I found. Chicks might like this game because of a easy learning curve. Overall I give it a 7/10.
