    Spore bombs pretty hard. Besides the stupid DRM that makes you feel like you are just renting the game, the game was said to be dumbed down and boring. I will pass.

    Spore has received some outrage over DRM. It has been hit harder by it than Bioshock, I think...

    Bioshock was a better game, that is why.

    Overall, I was unimpressed. I had been waiting for quite a while for it as well, and in then end it amounted to about 8 hrs of game play, and that's playing through it twice... No real reason to play through it 3 times. Also, the DRM is ridiculous... I've heard plenty of backlash from the fans, so I think EA shot themselves in the foot, checked the barrel, and shot themselves in the face... They hyped this game way too early, and delayed it too long for stuff that didn't matter.

    Maybe the Wii version will be better once it comes out.

    One can hope but I tend to think things won't work out like that. If anything, it'll only be more popular if it drops the DRM (which I would think they would for a wii game...). However, I could see this being fairly entertaining (as far as PC games go) on that console.

    I think they will drop the DRM because I don't think it's even possible do DRM on the Wii.

    You can install Spore on the same computer as long as you want. The limitation is if you install it on several computers.
    The game itself is boring. Choose carnivore to win. If you choose Herbivore, make sure to be friend with everybody.

    Spore released a patch to help with the DRM protests.

    There's no doubt, they simplified it a lot. This tends to happen with overly ambitious games. They propose a lot but can only deliver on so much. With Spore being a fixed single player game, I pretty much doubt they're going to patch in a lot of the things in that video that weren't included in the final game. Too bad too...
    I am interested in this patch, the description I found said nothing (that I saw) about DRM, I wonder if that's just their unwillingness to admit their mistake!

    I think EA did it on purpose so they could have a couple expansions and make more money.

    That's possible, the best expansion though would be a more meaningful end game. I just couldn't stay interested in space, and from what I saw it didn't matter what you did before that, you always ended up having the same beginning quest... If they managed to improve that somehow, they might have a viable expansion, other than that... I doubt anyone would buy it. Course', that's just my opinion...

    Well if they add some of the stuff in the video then they will add at least underwater city's, and improved cell stage(first stage). Hopefully they add more verity to animations from what I seen so far all the gun attacks look a like. I think I'm going to wait until the Wii version to get Spore.

    They are planning on an expansion which is no surprise but the shock is that they think the DRM backlash is no big deal. I for one did not buy it because of DRM and I am glad after hearing that Spore was not good anyway!
