"Be prepared to wait"
1 stars"

Review by Leo on 31st August, 2011

The FAQ for this game says: Buy it once, install it and get playing What the FAQ for this game SHOULD say: Buy it once, install the installer, download it (roughly 2Gb), install the game, download the patches, install the patches, wait for the beginning of the month because the previous steps have chewed through your datacap, and get playing. Darkspore might have been worth buying if it were not for the fact that the physical media only installs the installer. After that, and assuming you have a large cap on your broadband plan, you can expect to have to wait a good 2–3 hours after inserting the DVD to actually start playing

"Worth It- Doubtful"

Review by Jim on 3rd March, 2012

Agree with the other review.. “Install and Play” is pretty much a lie, since you need to install patches etc, and most importantly, which isnt mentioned at all in the description is that an “internet connection is REQUIRED to install and play” Yet another fail from EA. That aside, the game itself seems promising, but probably not worth the hassle.

Description

Darkspore is a fast-paced and intense sci-fi Action-RPG in which you become embroiled in a desperate struggle to save the galaxy from an ancient and powerful evil.

Recruit the best warriors from across the galaxy to build your creature arsenal and collect hundreds of distinctive creature characters, each with their own unique abilities, to wield as your living weapons. Take direct control of your creatures as they descend to the surface of infected planets to battle hordes of enemies and drive back the forces of Darkspore.

Your enemies are diverse and dangerous – in order to defeat them you will need to employ the full range of your creature arsenal and strategically decide which creatures to deploy for each battle.

Collect new weapons and armor to augment your creatures' abilities and turn them into a more powerful fighting force. Use the award-winning Spore Creature Editor to customize your own unique creature characters, and trade with other players to complete your arsenal.

Play through the epic sci-fi campaign solo or co-operatively, join forces with friends to take on the forces of Darkspore, or battle your friends head-to-head in fast-paced competitive arena battles.

Features:

  • COLLECT an arsenal of hundreds of different creatures and wield them as your living weapons
  • CHOOSE strategically which creatures to send into battle against the forces of Darkspore
