4.0 out of 5 stars Spore can survive on the Wii October 8, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a fan of the Spore (PC) game and having played it through, I wasn't sure what to expect with the Wii version, but here's my take on a decent addition to Spore:

Graphics: The general gameplay graphics and sound effects are very cartoony compared to the PC version. It can certainly be appealing to a younger audience. The colors and graphics are smooth and well done.

Gameplay: You start as a small two legged creature going around doing quests and finding new body parts (mouth, feet, hands, etc) with the goal to improve your creature and proceed to new areas / fight harder creatures. There are similarities to creature phase on Spore PC. You make use of the Wiimote and nunchucks by shaking them to break open or kick objects. I like that you can kick just about anything, and it will anger most creatures to fight you. This brings us to the combat, probably the most fun aspect of the game. You fight arena style by punching, charging, diving, spitting, biting, etc. to where the last creature standing wins. There are also other mini type games throughout the game like singing and dancing, where you have to aim the Wiimote at a certain direction and follow the creature's motion.

Controls: In general, the controls are good. Camera is a bit awkward at times and I wish you could zoom out just a little more, like in the PC version. Still, you can look in all different directions with the nunchuck which is fine. The wiimote and nunchuck are very sensitive during some of the activities like dancing, which definitely takes some practice to master.

Multiplayer: You can do an arena style battle with a friend (2 players max). What's cool is that you can use the character you created during the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good title that unfortunately falls a bit short November 30, 2009
By NYJ
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've just about finished wrapping up game play with Spore Hero and overall I will say that it has been a very enjoyable experience. There have been moments of frustration (you'll know what I'm talking about when you get to the Moonlit Caverns), but you'll eventually be able to overcome them. The game starts with you crash landing on a planet along with your arch-nemesis. As he goes about making life miserable for the spore tribes already inhabiting the planet, it is your job to evolve to solve quests in order to set things right. Along the way you'll solve quests, interact with the inhabitants of the planet, evolve other creatures, fight, and collect the 327 creature parts scattered across the world (which you can then use to evolve yourself). Combat, which you will do a lot of, places you in a ring with your opponent where you'll be forced to fight each other real time (no turn-based system like in Monster Lab). It's an enjoyable experience, with moderate difficulty. Problem is, the game can be completed fairly quickly (less than 10 hours) and unless you want to evolve and fight creatures, the replay-ability is minimal. In addition the Sporepedia, which with the PC and DS versions allows you to load your creation to the web, lacks that online functionality. This means the Sporepedia is relegated to creating/evolving characters to use in multiplayer battling mode, which is a huge disappointment. EA Montreal could really have pushed this game into the upper echelons of 2009 games by allowing online connectivity (even if simply for the Sporepedia), but it's an opportunity lost. That knocks this game down from a potentially great title to one that falls a bit short. It is well deserving of a good 3-star rating, but that's about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, But Short October 23, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
My (almost)10 year old had a lot of fun playing this, and he also loved Spore on the PC. He did beat the game in what I would guess was about 10 hours of gameplay. We just bought it last Saturday, and he played some Saturday and some Sunday, and finished it up on Thursday. I was expecting it to last a little longer, but he seemed not in the least disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game. A bit easy. November 4, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this for my son since he likes the Spore Universe PC game. This is a fun game and has far more action than the PC version. The graphics are fantastic as well. The only problem is he solved the game in 2 days!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fun Fun! April 10, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just bought this for my 7 year old son. He loves it! He can't get enough. Some reviewers here are adults rating this against a PC version. This particular game, for the wii, is really geared for kids. It's colorful, imaginative, self directed, fun and full of adventure. Someone had mentioned that her son solved this game in 2 days. I absolutely believe that a child that plays video games often could just breeze through this. My kiddo has a wii but doesn't play that often. We have Mario Kart and the rest are sports type games. So..this game was a brilliant surprise for him (and me). I sat and watched him play this for an hour. It was so entertaining.

You start out as an egg. Once you crack out of your egg you begin your adventure. Since you're just a baby there are several creatures that will teach you lessons, how to eat, how to kick etc. This is great since it really stopped the frustration level. So many times a game will frustrate my son before he really learns how to play. This was painless.

There is fighting but it's done in a very cartoon-ish, silly way. We don't allow violent or mature games. Spore fits the bill in every way. it satisfies my son's need for fun, competition and a bit of butt kicking while being very kid friendly. Honestly, I can't wait to create my own little guy.
