SecuRom DRM Cripples this Game

I was really disappointed when I learned that EA had failed to remove SecuRom from the final release of Spore. This DRM scheme is unfortunately an extreme example of companies treating paying customers like criminals, while the criminals with their DRM free pirated copies get a better overall user experience.

I really wanted to give you $50 EA, but I'm sorry I just can't. Please send EA the right message about DRM and refuse to purchase this game.

ONE OF THE BEST YET

This game is fun, delightful, clever and totally absorbing. It's similar to Ankh but much more creative, funny and challenging. It's true that most of the game is done for you with the story line, (beautifully done) and the dialogue which does give you some options but makes it constantly engaging. The graphics are amazing. A lot of the puzzles are difficult I found and could not possibly have finished it without a walkthrough. But if you have the patience I do not have and think outside the box it's possible. Who would think to put a "smoking pipe" on a "bunch of wasps" in a "cereal bowl" on a "ledge" you don't even know is there. Brilliant!! The characters are great and likable so I had fun and found myself smiling and laughing which I've never experienced in a game. I LOVED IT!!!

The game is long which I love because like a good book you can hardly wait to get back to it.

Good game in theory but marred by technical problems!

This game is a great little adventure for those who loved the Monkey Island series of games... Not quite as refined or as brilliant in its humour, but a very nice, entertaining, game nonetheless. Which makes it all the more infuriating when you discover that there is a glitch in the game that means that, if you're unlucky and come across it, you cannot progress beyond a certain point in the game as one of the objects you need is strangely missing. This was a known issue in the windows version and unfortunately appears to have been ported over. Hopefully a patch is forthcoming soon?

Give it a shot!

OK.... so the graphics are yesteryear... and it's a tad simplistic compared to other games.

But in the end, that really didn't matter. Just like dating a girl who isn't a cheerleader, at first you're feeling ify about her. But after a while you realize you really like her!

So I say give it a shot if you like adventure/RPG games...

Don't waste your money here

This is 100% a search game. Nothing else. No levels of difficulty, no animated characters - zip. I have to say that I'm glad I'm already a fan of the TV show. Because if I'd played this first - I would have never watched it. I'm usually a pretty lenient reviewer, but in this case I spent $20 for a very boring, monotonous game. Don't buy this one.

Needs more work

The graphics in this game leave a lot to be desired. Something that anyone could do with cut and paste. The gameplay isn't much better, for a hidden object game it really doesn't help if the object is actually hidden behind another object. This game needs more work.
