I hope this doesn't fail my expectations.
It will. I'd recommend that you strongly consider not buying it. The game is pretty and somewhat innovative (in that it's not exactly like every other game coming out). However, it's extremely simplistic and seems like it was aimed at eight-year-olds. The gameplay is repetitive, easy, and I found it boring.
The creature creator is the most entertaining part, but after the "let's run around and eat stuff or play a stupid mini-game to make friends" phase, all that customization means zip.
If you like the creature creator and building editor aspects, or similar creative tools from games like the Sims then go for it.
If you are like me, and want a little gameplay to go along with the object and creature editor, then I'd pass.
It would be nice if you could export the models from the creature creature for use in other applications...
creator. I'm really tired.
It's more a toy than a game. Kind of a lego set with the fun drained out of it.
Not buying this 'til it's on Wii.

I think we should have all realized this game was going to blow hard the minute: a) Will Wright said that it was aimed at "casual gamers" and b) we first heard the game was going to be five or six mini-games in sequence.
I noticed that the TV show X-Play was sponsored by this game for like a month, then amazingly enough gave the game a perfect score.
Come on, guys! It's fun! I got a coupon for a free lobotomy with mine, and it really helps!

bat shit crazy christians will love this.
A "digital toy" that you "make what you will of it" implies an open-ended, non-linear environment where experimentation and alternate approaches are encouraged. Not qualities that I associate with Spore.
Hey I wonder what would happen if I went to this planet OH FUCK I'M BEING ATTACKED BY GROX AGAIN
This game looks terrible. Its a creature editor with a tacked on game. If I want to click on things until I either win or die I'll play Minesweeper.
what a terrible commercial.
Christ, people, it'd be fine if you were bitching because the game is bad, but it isn't. It just isn't the type of game you want it to be. TETRIS SUCKS BECAUSE IT'S NOT A FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER.
Still, four stars because that narrator is annoying.
I'm just glad the torrents for this game are filled with lots of people.
Terrible game, terrible commercial....but I might keep it on my computer for the full creature creator.
It's a half-assed ripoff of Poser to create monsters. Wow!
I think my favorite thing about Spore is how the developers did that smug, pretentious thing of "Oh man, there's NO WAY you'll see this on a CONSOLE!! This is a complex PEE-CEE game for a totally different crowd!!" and it turns out to have as much depth and complexity as an XBLA game. (less in some cases)
You too can make a penis with a million eyes.
