Another gaming weekend
I spent yesterday having a really long go on Spore. This computer game was only released in September, but I hadn't had a good play through it, despite having it for a month. Oh, and by good play through, I mean more than half-an-hour.
The game play is quite simple and highly addictive as each new stage in your species’ evolution unlocks new tasks and goals to complete and go for. Everything you do affects what your species will become: peaceful or warmongers, or fence sitters. During my play through yesterday I created and moulded a species of creature that were extremely violent and once they reached the civilisation age, wanted to do nothing but build nuclear weapons.
They haven't got the bomb... yet.
So Spore is?
This is a strategy based game to some extent, and there's no over arching story. There's just you, the creatures you design, and millions upon millions of years of evolution to get through.
It is a fun game to play, and that's what is most important.
