Spore Creature Creator Review
By Leandro Herena
There's no real game to play in Creature Creator. You're presented with a blob, which you can manipulate into a shape, pulling its spinal cord in every direction possible, before adding a head, limbs and various optional extras, as if designing a new car. The basic model might be fine, but the luxury model includes extra armour for added safety. It's all incredibly simple, completely mouse driven and lots of fun.
You can throw together a collection of limbs and create something in less than a minute, but you won't be able to leave it there. Each limb can be subtly altered at each joint and moved around the body until you're completely happy - minor changes can completely alter the way your creature walks. Once you name something it's essentially a real virtual creature, and it's all too easy to spend upwards of 30 minutes tweaking minor details.
Spore: Creature Creator is something everyone with a capable PC or Mac should try out.
