QuoteThere's no disputing that people are enjoying the game's content creation system. That's because EA released the Spore creature creator in June as a free download in order to both stoke interest in the game and, perhaps more important, to populate the game's database of creatures with users' creations.
And it worked. The company says more than 2.5 million people got the creature creator and made more than 2 million different species, all of which will become part of the game.
What isn't known is how the rest of the game will go over, or how important that will be to whether it is a financial success. That's because, for the most part, EA hasn't shown very much of Spore's actual game play publicly. In a long series of demos over the last three years, it has mainly shown the creature creator and certain parts of the cell and space stages. But few people outside EA have seen extended play from the rest of the game.
Said By TenchiFreak5The Battlefield games were done by DICE, who was then bought by EA and proceeded to make shitty sequels (2142, Bad Company).
