Those Worried About the Game Side of Spore

Spore will be a culmination of years of real time strategy games, simulation games, and a plethora of game technologies. It will be a game that finally puts the package together. However, in that attempt, Spore has lost some players that are wondering where the "game" in Spore will be. Look no further than the following video highlighting the civilization phase of Spore.

    Good video. It does help put some of my fears at ease. The animations look great.

  2. This looks very much so like the game I though it would be. This one will be a breath of fresh air to the rest of my gaming.

    I'm really looking forward to this one!

    Thanks for the video!

    My biggest fear with spore is that it will be too easy. I don't want the path to supreme ruler of the universe to be a cake-walk. Hopefully there will be some civilizations that are simply "better" than others. That way i could either gimp myself by choosing a less powerful race or challenge myself by confronting the dominant species.

  4. The Spore team definitely has their hands full trying to communicate how broad a concept the game is. Most people probably don't realize there will be nukes and such in the game. I watched another video on the Space Stage, and they were playing up galactic domination.

    One of Spore's best features is the ability to jump straight into any stage at any time. I think you might have to start from the beginning the first time to unlock the other stages, but eventually you can start from any stage you like best.

    I'm lucky in that I wasn't paying attention to Spore three years ago. I can understand people being burnt out on the hype, but I think that burnout will fade quickly for anyone who tries it.
