Product Details

Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Create universal wonder in Spore, an exciting new simulation game that lets you develop your own personal universe. Work your way through five evolutionary phases, including Cell, Creature, Tribe, Civilization and Space, that offer unique challenges, thrills and goals. For example, you can start in Cell and nurture one species from a simple aquatic organism all the way until it becomes a sentient life form. Or you can jump right in and begin building tribes and civilizations on multiple planets. What you do with your universe is totally up to you.

The powerful creation tools of Spore are easy to use, allowing you to effortlessly design every aspect of your universe. Creatures, vehicles, building and even starships are all within your grasp. While Spore is a single-player game, your creations and other players' creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs, offering a nearly limitless number of worlds to visit and enjoy. You can also go online to view the incredible things other players have made and can even pull those items into your universe. Spore gives you the chance to make worlds and beings that evolve, grow and delight you every step of the way.

Spore Vehicles


Finally all that hard work creating the perfect being can be put to good use. Import creatures that you created with the Spore Creature Creator and watch them live, breath and thrive in the full version of Spore.


While Spore is a single player game, your creations and other players’ creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs, providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play within. Internet Connection Required.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crashed my system Oct. 27 2008
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This peace of sh** crashed my system, and get this, the only way I could get it to work was a full re-install of windows and than installing the cracked version I downloaded (I read on a forum that it would work). this thing is nothing but a $50 peace of worthless sh** that isn't even worth the disk it is pressed on.


EA... You better not put this DRM sh** on Sims 3 or i will not bother buying it I will just skip right to my other solution and download it. You guys F'd up big time.

I have all my Sims stuff registered and will be emailing my complaint.
I have been a big fan of Will Wright's games for a long time but NOW I AM F***ING MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars BITTER IS THE SPORE OF GREED Aug. 30 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The game has been just released. But I am not going to buy it. I used to a have a standing pre-order but not anymore, that has been long canceled. I gave EA a chance to mend its ways but it failed. Here is why.

This is a warning Review. Warning of the dangers of the harbored Digital Rights Management (DRM) subroutine that comes unavoidably bundled with the game. This type of DRM (SecuROM 7x with Limited Installations) is well known as it has already been used in at least two other games (BIOSHOCK & MASS EFFECT). So my review is based on first-hand experience of a core aspect of the game.

Apparently EA would rather keep its customers in the dark. That is why, in the past month, EA Forums got censored, Wikipedia entries selectively edited and Amazon reviews repeatedly deleted. What is worse, Amazon (possibly without knowing it) is breaking the law which requires the full disclosure of bundled snoop-ware.

LIMITED INSTALLS? Yes, LIMITED INSTALLS!!! We only get to ride this shiny pony for...3 laps! The official announcement mentions "on 3 different computers" but avoids to clarify what a "different computer" makes: will changing the graphics card trigger the loss of a token? what about attaching a new hard-drive (internal or external) or adding a new user account. All the above have been reported to subtract installation tokens from BIOSHOCK or MASS EFFECT.

And, in order to enforce the limited installations, exactly like BIOSHOCK, there will be IRREMOVABLE FOLDERS placed in our systems' Root that will effectively revoke our Administrator rights to our own PCs!

Is EA trying to pave the way towards a nightmarish future where PC gaming will be a continuously-billed service (such as cable TV) and not a product?

1.0 out of 5 stars Virus disguised as a game Oct. 9 2008
By N. Yang
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
My review will contain facts, and only facts, no commentary about EA or what's right and what's wrong. You make your own decisions.

I purchased this game 2 weeks ago.

When you first install this game, it will automatically, secretly, install a program called SecuROM into the Kernel of your computer. The Kernel is the highest administration level of your computer, it can interact directly with your hardware.


1) SecuROM installs itself automatically when you install the game. It installs itself onto Ring 0 (Ring 3 is where most programs operate, ring 1 and 2 are your device drivers/OS, and ring 0 is the root of your computer where direct interaction with your hardware Ram CPU etc occurs). Simply put, it has total control over your computer because inner rings have full access of subsequent rings, but not vice versa.

2) The game's installer does not tell you that it is installing this program, and there's no way to prevent it. Nowhere in the manual, the online documentation, EA's website, the game's EULA does it make any mention of this software.

3) SecuROM runs automatically and HIDES itself from your operating system, it hides its folders and .dlls.

4) SecuROM CANNOT be disabled. It is hidden from your OS so you can't tell it's running unless you use special programs. Ending the process does nothing, it restarts instantly.

5) SecuROM CANNOT be uninstalled. Even if you uninstall the game completely and delete it from your computer, SecuROM is still there, still runs on your computer whenever it's on. It has no uninstaller. deleting its folder, removing the registry entries does nothing, it is now apart of your system Kernel.

1.0 out of 5 stars A little help, please? Sept. 29 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a lot of problems with Spore that I can dismiss: the limited internet activations which will eventually disallow me to play; the updates which cause the game to no longer play; the overly simplistic gameplay through the first 4 stages of the game. I can accept these things...

The most annoying thing to me about Spore is the complete lack of adequate help files. There is very little explanation on how to do things in this game, and the manual which comes with it is sadly lacking. Terraforming, for example, is not explained anywhere in the manual or game. Not that anything in the FIRST FOUR stages need explaining; they are painfully simplistic and easy to play.

I am sure if I were to spend $40 more to buy Spore: Galactic Edition, the help files would be more... helpful. However, this game isn't even worth the initial $40, let alone another $40 more to make it comprehendable. I'd rather just deal with the headache I get from trying to deal with the crashes and inadequate gameplay explanations.

And the next time an EA game comes out... I think I'll save my money.
