I've actually heard from my slightly more...gamey friends that some people have created some "Anti-Spore" websites because some people have been converted from creationism to darwinism. That's just....strange....

Still, it looks like an amazing game, but knowing my luck my computer won't be able to cope with the specs....damn....

I believe your referencing the Anti-Spore website, created by theists to deter youth against science, and, I'm afraid, is a joke website : ) So I hear, anyway.

Spore is a game thats more like five games in one; it begins as a simple feeding game. Eat to survive, to get bigger, and to evolve and get more parts. Eventually it changes and becomes more of a group oriented strategy in which you can travel to other creatures nests and either become friends with them or kill them off, again to survive and evolve further. Further in the game becomes about civilizations and then dominance of the world, and finally space travel and exploration/destruction.

At spores core, at least for me, its a game of life in its many stages; how something can start from a cell and become the dominant species of a world and even the galaxy.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

If a game like Spore can shake your creationist beliefs that profoundly, you didn't really believe them to begin with. I doubt that is true that anyone had a change of belief due to Spore first off, and second: I think that is a joke website (if we are thinking of the same one).

HMV or Game os probably your best bet...
I just borrowed it off of a friend. I'll buy a license key from EA when I can be bothered...

As to the whole "it's anti-creationist" thing that some people have been saying (not on here) about Spore, I wonder what they'll say if the LHC discovers the Higgs Boson

For those of you that don't know, the discovery of the Higgs Boson will disprove creationism once and for all. Unless creationists decide to throw up the all-purpose "you can't beat me" arguements, such as "God doesn't need to obey the laws of physics" etc. But I discount those, simply because they're basically a get-out arguement.

I like the tribal stage. Not much for replayability, but a good stage imo.
