So it seems that Spore is finally coming out. This is great news, considering that in won Game of Show way back at E3 2005. If I've ever been doubtful about a game living up to all it's promise it's probably this one. I know Will Wright is a freaking genius, but I dunno if even he can manage to make a fun engaging game out of the cavalcade of stuff there is to do in Spore. Can one game really contain a flOw style cell game, a Civilization style city game and an incredibly ambitious galaxy spanning space faring game and manage to make them all fun?
I have no doubt that the creature/vehicle creator portions of the game will be fun. I just hope it doesn't turn out like City of Heroes where the most entertaining part of the game is character building. If they can make a fun game to go with their incredibly impressive creature building technology than they will have a surefire hit on their hands. Here's hoping.
