Spore Hero Arena

 

The Spore brand is not a mark of quality in this case.

Creature Creator ; Supports Nintendo WFC

Creature Creator is limited ; The game is often boring ; Graphics are poor

Spore Heroes Arena is a very uninspiring title that has a repetitive fighting engine and tedious exploration. It definitely does not live up to the Spore brand.

The Spore concept is a difficult one to transfer well to weaker hardware, but thankfully EA have not tried to shoehorn in anything unnecessary to a good gaming experience. Sadly, what is here, in regards to fighting and journeying, doesn't hold up...

Spore Hero Arena [DS] Review

 

“…a handheld version of the love it/hate it PC game…”

Creature creator is awkward to get to grips with at first; Needlessly frustrating and difficult; Success on some stages seems to depend entirely on how charitable the AI's feeling

Action packed

 

I've always been a fan of Spore, of course I've only ever played the original Spore. But this game doesn't fall far from the tree. With interesting plot, easy game controls, and fun combat this game is a must have. Of course it is somewhat boring on...
