From the Manufacturer

Create universal wonder in Spore, an exciting new simulation game that lets you develop your own personal universe. Work your way through five evolutionary phases, including Cell, Creature, Tribe, Civilization and Space, that offer unique challenges, thrills and goals. For example, you can start in Cell and nurture one species from a simple aquatic organism all the way until it becomes a sentient life form. Or you can jump right in and begin building tribes and civilizations on multiple planets. What you do with your universe is totally up to you.

The powerful creation tools of Spore are easy to use, allowing you to effortlessly design every aspect of your universe. Creatures, vehicles, building and even starships are all within your grasp. While Spore is a single-player game, your creations and other players' creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs, offering a nearly limitless number of worlds to visit and enjoy. You can also go online to view the incredible things other players have made and can even pull those items into your universe. Spore gives you the chance to make worlds and beings that evolve, grow and delight you every step of the way.

I was bored enough the other day that I decided I wanted to try out this game. I gotta say, there are an awful lot of negative reviews out there on it so I was a bit nervous that I wasted my money. I've been addicted to it! There are so many stages of life to play with, you can start out with your species as an embryo and take them all the way to evolving so much they can travel in space!

It's not a game you can beat overnight because the stages take a while, it involves either becoming allies with other species on the planet (You can select any one of the multiple planets they provide) or conquering them into extinction. If you connect your game to the internet you can download other people's creations, houses, city halls, creatures, vehicles, land vehicles and others, tribes, and much much more. You also get to visit other users' species on the planet instead of just maxis defaults. But even with Maxis defaults, you will probably never play the game and start a new species, and run into the same species twice, there are thousands. The level of customization in-game is so amazing that your creations will never look like someone else's.

Have fun, you'll be addicted!

Buyer beware! The game is just, "ok." The real problem is the registration key provided by EA. Through no fault of their own, Amazon provided me with two registration keys that were already used by pirates. Who gave those keys to Amazon? Electronic Arts.

During installation, the game needs a key. After installation, the game tries to tie that key to an EA or Spore account. I tried to register the game with the first key and it said the key was invalid. I contacted Amazon, and they issued me the second key. It was also invalid. When I contacted EA, they told me to login using the email address used to register the keys. The problem was, I hadn't registered it yet, and the email addresses were not mine. EA was not helpful at all.

Instead of requesting more keys, I asked for a resolution from Amazon. They resolved the issue to my satisfaction.

Googling the problem revealed hundreds of people that experienced the same issue. It seems those who buy the game cannot play because someone else has already used the key illegally.

No matter the price, this level of frustration and hassle are not worth it. Please save yourself from a headache and look elsewhere.

The game is interesting and fun if you are into the kind of simulator it is. It isn't quite what I was hoping for, but I would give the game 4 stars. If you like simulators this game is for you.

But then again, because of EA/Amazon, I have access only to offline play.

Now, EA and Amazon just don't seem to care about this game, although its likely more EAs fault since Amazon probably has a key database from them. Numerous people have run into the dreaded invalid key issue, and I am one of them. For bobs sake, just replace the method of account authentication to something that can't be so easily generated or cracked (*looks at Spore developers glaring*). You are making the case for piracy more appealing, when DRM prevents people who actually buy a product from being able to use features of it just because someone else has already generated their key using a VB application written by a 12 year old.

Anyways, I have emailed both Amazon and EA, and am waiting a response. But this kind of thing, for any product, is not acceptable.

The Amazon price for the download version of Spore was the cheapest anywhere. The download took a while, but has worked almost perfectly. My kids really enjoy creating creatures on the game. It was definitly worth it. I would give it five stars, but there are some bugs in the game which sometimes cause it to freeze up. Thanks again Amazon.

I was so excited when I bought this game that it was going to be so much fun, but then after downloading it twice and STILL having installation problems (which I haven't had any kind of problems with any downloads ever), I was just very disappointed that I couldn't enjoy it.

"The registration key used to install this game cannot be validated" that is the message I get when trying to play Spore with the online features, I've went though EA...was given at least 5 different CD keys...Brand new from them...and I still get that error. Nobody at EA can help....if you search for "The registration key used to install this game cannot be validated" you will find pages and pages of people who purchased Spore that cannot access the online features of the game. As far as I can determine, its an account based error. If your EA account has this problem EA has no idea how to fix it.

I just threw away money on this game....not amazons fault. But they should consider pulling it from their store.

This game is great for hours of fun. A little long in design section, but you get complete control over your creature. With all the different routes out there, it also has a decent replay value.

Update. OMG, what a terrible experience I had with EA It seems that you can only activate this product 3 times. I am an IT tech, I do a lot of experimenting. I can easily need to install 3 or 4 times in a year. Okay so Amazon made good and got me a new license key. But the paranoid EA validation method won't let me. It remembers my old hardware somehow, and declares my brand new valid key as invalid. Okay so Amazon gives me another, same result game won't activate. It is playable off line, but some features are missing. Given that the game is fun till the new wears off then is boring ho hum, if I had to do it over again, I would not buy it. I am knocking off a star just for the hassle EA has caused me. And I am going to do my best to avoid all EA games. Their customer service is the most horrid on the planet

Like so many of these games, it is killer fun for a while, then you hit a wall and it is ignored. I have had fun, but have not quite found the hang of it. It is like so many other simulations by this developer, the fun dies off pretty quickly Get it for a casual gamer and they will get good value from it
