    The PC version has been leaked for a couple of days too. I have it but waiting to repair my good PC.

    Can't wait though.

    A game that I care less about based off a game that I don't even care about. Should have made a Sims home designer and decorator, at least that would have marginally been more entertaining.

    I have it already [​IMG]
    I have seen only the two first phases and it's fun, but I don't think it will be a big hit like The Sims.. I think it's too complicated to the public used to The Sims, each phase is very unique, like a totally different game.

    yeah.. i knew that, i guess i missunderstood this part; "Because I hate it it's no fun it looks stupid and it just sucks" i picked it up as "it looks stupid and boring -pass"

    well, everyone can't like everything.

    I never played Spore before and I think this DS version is very fun. I love to play around and make my own unique creature. Allthough I found the "tutorial" very kiddie style and I felt like I was 10 years old. But the game seems very fun indeed!

    Eek, it's hard to manage a good looking creature! Dunno why my monster has 4 eyes and 2 pairs of arms, if you care only of the power it becomes too hard to control [​IMG]

    Judging by screenies and other people's comments, you don't get to start out as a microorganism huh?

    Can you only attack by slashing? I cant seam to find any other way to cause damage, which is a great shame as you have to be close to the enemy leaving yourself open to damage at the same time.

    I played this knowing it wouldn't be anything like the PC version, and wasn't expecting such. To my surprise, it was actually very fun. While the Creature Editor is nowhere near as powerful as the PC one, it's still fun to fiddle around with your creature, and there are MANY parts you can use. The story is pretty humorous too. And asides from following the main mission objectives, there's also a lot to do on the side and badges to unlock and etc. There's just so much to do. The only thing I dislike about it, is that the combat is a bit too simple. It might get better when I find more Bio-Force though. Can't wait to try Wi-fi and get some of my friend's creatures into the game.

    Nope, the game starts off with an UFO invasion. You immediately hatch from your egg and attempt to escape. Your very first form is a larva-like creature called an Oogie and from what I've seen the entire game takes place more or less on land.

    Nah, it's much more simplified, and it's also a bit weird because your creature talks (in text form) right off the bat. It's got a very light-hearted feel, but it's still a pretty cool game so far. A little quirky in terms of how the game walks you through the basics, but a quick once over of the tutorials helps quite a bit.

    Personally, I like it, but it doesn't quite offer the level of freedom I was expecting. Now, of course, I knew it was going to be a very different game from Spore PC, but I wasn't expecting something quite as linear as what seems to be here. Still, they've implemented some really fun ideas, albeit ideas that have been done before, but stuff like the EBA-inspired dance segments are good fun, and they're short so you appreciate doing them each time. The combat seems a bit brutal to start out with and it's easy for your creature to get poned quickly.

    Still...it's fun. I'll definitely be giving it the full once through, but it's too bad this and Viva Pinata are out at the same time. Too much mental competition for me. They're both games I've really been looking forward to, so far as the DS is concerned.

    So I feel like an idiot, but can anybody run by me how combat works?


    I'm at the part near the beginning where you get the "heal" power and have to rescue those little red guys. I go to the guy I have to fight, it says in my creature creator that I have attack power, but my creature WON'T ATTACK. I've tried clicking, swiping, whatever, he just sits there and gets his ass kicked. Are there certain parts that you can't attack with? What am I doing wrong here?

    ah cool, that's working for me...i don't know why it wasn't doing it before...i guess because it takes a second to register so you have to continuously do it


    thanks!

    I'm kinda disapointed but maybe because I got the impression that the game would be a little different. But it's a good time killer so why bother whining [​IMG]
