Sorry, but the worst Prima Guide ever written
on August 5, 2011
Ok, to start with I need to state very clearly I am not a beginning gamer nor am I a beginner to playing Spore, and I totally get how complicated writing a Prima Guide can be.
However, this publication is merely an extension of pre-release marketing material. It would appear the authors have never played the game, or if they have, never played it longer than ten minutes at any given stage.
There are not even attempts to provide walk-throughs for some of the minimum-complexity achievements at any Stage of the game (*gasp* Not Even Space Stage?! No, dear reader, not even Space Stage), let alone explanations of what some of the achievements mean.
This publication would be a complete waste of money if not for the obvious high quality graphic layouts on every single page and the perfect thickness of the combined pages to exactly balance out the short-leg of a three-legged stool.
Note to the publisher: recommission these same authors to do the job right and give them enough time and money to deliver. This guide does not even deserve to have the name Prima associated with it.
