    I don't know what it would take to make a game of Spore's scope on the DS, but I know it requires an entirely different approach than the lamentably simplistic Spore Hero Arena.

    Spore Hero Arena, however, doesn’t have many redeeming features at all. Yes, it attempts a 3D creature creator, but it’s meaningless when you consider the game where it’s been placed. Poor adventuring and even worse fighting can’t save this game.
  3. When all is said and done, Spore Hero Arena just fails to keep one's attention.
  4. Spore Heroes Arena is a very uninspiring title that has a repetitive fighting engine and tedious exploration. It definitely does not live up to the Spore brand.

    Spore hero arena.Cloud this possibly be the worst ds game ever made? well,let's find out.Spore hero was a game created in 2009 the sameSpore hero arena.Cloud this possibly be the worst ds game ever made? well,let's find out.Spore hero was a game created in 2009 the same following day as spore hero it's a spinoff of Spore the PC game created by Will Wright.And you know what this game is a bunch a crap! This spinoff was very horrible the graphics look like a 4 year old game drew them.The fighting engine is crap.I can't really talk much about the wifi since hardly nobody gets one it and I have to take my word on it.Since I always get error code 51300 I can't talk much about it.EA and Maxis should of think about it making this game since it's a pile of crap.Now I do try to fine decent stuff in my reviewers but I can't I mean the ONLY part about this game was good is the Bio powers and the controls but it's so minor that this should even deserve a star not even one.Please avoid this game this game will haunt you Maxis should be ashamed of themselves this game gets a 0/10 titled (MOST HORRIBLE GAME EVER AND SHOULD NEVER EXIST) Full Review »
