    the game starts out promising, and ends by delivering the opposite of what it promised. GAMEPLAY: The worst part of the game. The motion controls are not utilized in very unique or innovative ways, in fact, it feels like they were making this for the PS2, but then decided to switch to the Wii last minute and did a haphazard job at mapping the actions to motion controls. The game feels like it has a very bad start, and when you're beginning to hope that it picks up later on, it ends, and I don't know if that is a good thing or bad thing. The only good part is the creature creation, and even that is limited. It has a pretty nice feature that allows you to save many different designs, for those who get all nostalgic about their monsters, but that along with the creature creation really is the only good thing in here, everything else is either mediocre or abysmal. MUSIC: Okay, I change my mind, THIS is the worst part of the game. The music is not only a failed attempt to try and immerse you into this games somewhat interesting world, but it also sounds like it was made by a middle school kid on an electronic keyboard (well, most of them). GRAPHICS: Nothing notable, interesting aesthetics and movies, but everything else is bland. STORY: Well, it's a kids game. Overall, only get it if your kids are really young, because only they will be able to enjoy it, but don't forget to only buy it used. Expand

  1. The game may be too easy for some, but this spin-off adventure made it to Wii mostly unscathed. [Nov 2009, p.86]
  2. But it’s hard not to be disappointed that one of gaming’s true visions – of life’s multiplicity and constantly changing nature – should end up broadening itself by slumping into a worn groove of genre pieces and business dogma.
  3. Spore is an enjoyable (if slightly short) Zelda-lite adventure. However, the creation and evolution aspects -- major parts of what made the original game so impressive -- have taken a back seat to a run-of-the-mill equipment upgrade grind with some minor aesthetic variations. Spore Hero is a fun game; it’s just not necessarily a Spore game.
