The new Will Wright game Spore

It's predecessor might have been Evolva http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/evolva/index.html
I played it for a while but I suck at gameplay and got bored by it.

More basic evolution programs can be found here: http://www.alife.org/links.html

I've been waiting for this, I hope it is not juvenile. It has great potential #ni-1

I've tested the game and I didn't get far into the second evolution step on land.
I might retry the game but unlike in real nature, you can grow tentacles, remove them and then choose to regrow them.

Well, the game starts to get challenging when you reach the 4th level and start to explore the universe. I hope to get to that phase if I'm not bored enough with it.

well after reading the reviews on New Egg I don't think I will try this game. DRM seems to be the main issue but game play is another. Rts portion of the game seems to be lacking and as I suspected it is rather juvenile. It is made by the same people who made the Sims and I always got frustrated and bored with those. Bummer as usual "not up to the Hype"
