I rented this game because my girlfriend and I loved Spore on my computer and thought this might be worth buying, but I wanted to try it first.
The game starts out with the same style of graphics as the PC version and you hatch from an egg. You are introduced to the concept of adding on body parts to your creature in a tutorial stage. While there seem to be an abundance of parts, I foresee most of them being unused simply because they aren't as good as other parts you will almost always have.
The game play is a standard adventure/plat former and has plenty of the Spore-like world designs both in the creatures and in the environment. This game introduces a different kind of combat system, one that mimics a fighting game but much more simplistic. This is probably the game's biggest downfall. The combat is almost too simple and often times can be won just by spamming a normal attack. I didn't play many combats but I could foresee them becoming very old and tired after only a few hours of game play.
Overall, its at least good for a rental if you liked Spore, especially if you are into the character creation. If creating your own character (sometimes only for aesthetic reasons) isn't something that appeals to you then there are better plat formers out there.
i got this game hoping it would be just like the other spore games but it isnt at all.I rated this game a 4 because throughout the whole game its pretty much the same thing every level and eventually gets really boring.

this game is definitely different, it looks colorful and childish, but the games controls provide a extra amount of challenge. if your looking for something simple, but is still a Challenge, try this game!
