Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac|Life has posted a new review of the Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack expansion for Will Wright's popular evolution sim. The pack includes 72 new creature parts, 48 new paint options, and 24 new animations. Mac|Life gave the expansion a score of 2 out of 5.

From the review:

The expansion pack fulfills its most basic promise; you get 60 new body parts, 48 more paint patterns, and 24 extra animations. The parts and patterns fit the theme of the title, full of doe eyes, razor claws, rag doll stitching, and bloody-organ skin. And the new movements animate your creature in expressive ways, from new dances and gymnastics flips, to being struck by lightning or chased by bees. A couple extra backgrounds allow photos and videos in front of a rainbow-laden world or wasteland scene.

But while those numbers seem like a lot, they’re miserly when you get down to playing. The body parts are rationed across categories: 12 parts each to eyes, mouths, hands/feet, arms/legs, and decorations. And you get no new weapons, such as horns. We enjoyed building creatures with these new parts, but we wanted twice as many to justify the effort of installing the new software. And the new animations are entertaining, but we got tired of them in just a few minutes.
