'Spore' is a game for all gamers

'Spore' is a game for all gamers:
Easy enough for casual gamers; core gamers will go nuts for space phase
"Few games charm as quickly as 'Spore.' Seconds into the game, you slip into the primordial ooze with your single-cell organism. The creature blinks at you with a now-what helplessness that fosters the kind of emotional attachment that so many epic adventure games loaded with 40-hour story arcs and blockbuster cinematics can only hope for.

It's like you've been handed a baby. You want so much for it to grow up and make something of itself. You know, like a four-legged bird with a spiky tail. Or a blobby serpent with 18 eyes going down its spine."
