"Darkspore PC"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

After playing a few games by Maxis is my time, I wasn't expecting them to release a game such as this. Don't get me wrong, The Sims and Spore were great games. Very addictive and fun to play. Then Darkspore was released. I had my eye on it for a while during my time in financial peril. I wanted to play it to see how it compared. Little did I know I'd get the suprise of my life when the monkeys at Mightyape made it available at a very affordable price. In a nutshell, Darkspore is an absolutely PHENOMINAL game that does everything the genre (Action RPG) describes. The graphics are not “hungry” for resources from a computer, the Spore engine is still about 90% intact (each hero has a pre-set form, the opposite of Spore), the customisation is close to limitless and the “parts” and “weapons” (known as “gear” to veteran RPG players) are fantastically designed and have a beautiful variety. You want a summary- BUY IT. PLAY IT. LOVE IT.

"Good but not great"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Darkspore is a fun but pretty standard ARPG, and is rather reliant on you having people to play co-op with in order to have fun. If you have friends that are keen, and are an ARPG fan then its probably worth getting, but otherwise I'd look for something better.

"DO NOT BUY - NO LONGER USABLE"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Like it says in the title. Do not buy. This game is no longer supported by EA and the servers have been taken down. The game requires you to be connected to Origin even in single-player so it won't work. It should not be sold any more

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.

  • COLLECT an arsenal of hundreds of different creatures and wield them as your living weapons
