Every site I go to Spore gets abysmal ratings because of anti-DRM crusaders who haven't even bought the game and openly admit such spamming 1-star ratings. It makes me want to pull a Jay & Silent Bob. DON'T RATE THE GAME IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED IT! You control freak crusaders can go jump off a bridge.
And to those who hate the game itself, it's your fault for thing it's some kind of universal digital drug. Spore isn't for Sim City fans or twitch gamers or RTS digigenerals, it's for people who spend hours designing the face of one single Sim, who put great effort into decorating their house in Morrowind even though it gives no in-game benefit , who ditch plates mugs and other crap in their band's room in Exile 3 to make it look like a pigsty. A design and creation sandbox with some admittingly annoying gameplay elements injected in at the last moment.
Seriously though, keep your crusade away from the ratings.
