Why did I spend so much DNA evolving a flying poison spitting critter if they didn’t fly nor really spit much poison during the tribal stages? Way to trivialize my choices.

I tried twice, but it always seems there are more fun things to do than play Spore. Wash the dishes, walk the dog, lick an ass. I am just glad you took one for the team and revealed that the space phase is no fun either.

They promised a lot to consumers and early game ‘shows’ showing the game off, and they toke it all away.

If i were to play Spore again, it would be for the first 3-4 stages, and i would just ignore the space stage completely. That end game was supposed to be great, but.. its.. bah, i want my money back.

The execution was flawed due to them dumbing down the concept to appeal to casual gamers. Pity, as it could have been a classic. Now it will just be known as a failed attempt at greatness.

I quit in the civilization stage as the game had already been on it’s descend and there and then I just reached the tipping point.
