For all the Spore fanboys please keep your "0mg this game r0x you suck" comments to yourself, I love the game as much as you but! but!!! I must say this, after getting all the badges nothing happens in space mode to me so you never get that feeling of accomplishment I mean the space mode is the best part but it's soo huge that conquering the whole galaxy would take years. I mean really it's getting so repetitive that I just stopped playing now... If anyone else agrees that after playing space mode for a week the game really does get boring. I mean really a multiplayer mode would have been awesome not just auto downloading of some guy's crappy creation... It would be soo much more fun to chat with people online and conquer their planets or whatever terraforming gets boring after about an hour, the insane eco disasters and aliens attacks you is just too much and thus the game loses replay value, who else has really lost interest in a game that was hyped up to seem like it would be replayable for years like the Sims?

My opinion is that they kinda halfassed it because all the stages are soo short, hell I beat creature stage and cell stage on hard in less than 20 minuets... It makes COD4's campaign look like oblivion's campaign. They just released this game to hold people over for Sims 3 that will get about 5million sells and if they do make a second spore for the love of god I hope they add multiplayer modes. Final say is that the game is beatable in no time and you never get to really beat it at space mode leaving you hanging and not satisfied... Thus reducing the replay value.

Once again I really like Spore so don't flame me I just really believe it could have been longer and deeper.

Everyone always has a complaint about one game or another for one reason or another. The first thing you should have done was not even opened up with the " omg " bs and such. If you know it has a possibility of causing an issue, then don't post. If you are giving your opinion, then expect to get others opinions as well.

The game is ok, i don't find myself going out on a limb to play it though. It gets boring because you are supposed to change things. That is the whole thing about evolution, change. You are earning the right to change. If you don't, then ofcourse the game gets boring.

I have seen people complain of not getting their money's worth for little or no hours of enjoyment, but to complain there is an infinite galaxy, is a little different to say the least.

I stopped playing when I reached the Space stage. Way too open ended.

I agree with everything you said, I can't really add much on because I had the exact same experience as you and I just can't play it any more as it's far too boring.

I respect people's opinions but I do believe it is possible to start a thread where you can avoid a flame war. I only made that comment because like vista threads you can't say one bad thing without someone making a crappy post that doesn't add to the thread. If we wanted to debate Spore and how it sucks that can go in another thread. I was merely making this thread to see if anyone else have this common issue now that it was been a few weeks and the game gets boring, your post really didn't do much for the thread exactly what I am trying to avoid if you want to tell me it's a good game which it is then you should make another thread.

Now to reply to the Whole change comment. I find it funny how people keep saying change is what makes the game great... Only that their are only 2 stages where you actually evolve physically, the rest are mental evolutions. So you really can't change all that often in the game without having to start a new game all the time. Sure you can change your spaceship here and there but even with all the changing in the game it gets old and boring real quick.

If they made COD4 without a multiplayer mode about 98% of the game's buyers would say it's boring and only 6 hours on entertainment, but they don't. COD4 will have years of replayability unlike spore... Judging by the other posts it seems other guys have stopped playing spore...

Funny you mention cod4... The point on that game is, it WAS made for mp.

It is like BF2 where they labeled it an mp game, and didn't give people a single player campaign. People complained about this, but didn't get the fact that, it was meant as an mp game and the statements labeled it as such.

As to the whole flame war thing, i just don't understand why people walk in to post and automatically assume there is going to be one.

That was my whole point.

I guess you can say it gets boring after awhile, but it really depends on your attitude towards it then.

I've played another game(comparing) like Warhammer 40K: Dawn of war: Dark Crusade. Yeah, even if you play it online or with the AI opponents, it gets boring pretty quickly. Always the same few units with thick amounts of HP doesn't really appeal to me for a long period of time.

So far it hasn't gotten boring, but it's not the kind of game I play every day. I more play like once a week for a couple hours, pwn some planets, do some exploring, terraform other planets, travel through black holes, and all that fun stuff. Plus, the editors never seem to get old.

I see well they labeled Spore as a great SP game yet so little was given. I guess that's why I'm so upset.

Also sorry for taking offense to your post I just really can't say anything bad about spore without hearing the same posts over again about how I am stupid and they're right, thus is why I automatically assume there is going to be a flame war.

no no.. You'll get that bs here too... You get it everywhere. Fanboys are everywhere ( dips into his jacket to hide). Notoriously jumping out of the shadows and assaulting you with their opinions that have been grafted to sharp pointed sticks....

But seriously, the game is ok, but yes has it's moments in the sun as all games do. You want a great game to play with thousands of hours of playability ?

Baldurs gate: Shadows of AMN. Get any number of the weidu mods for it ( or any others for that matter) and slash away.
