Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the eagerly awaited life simulation game, Spore from Electronic Arts and Transgaming Technologies. In the game, you control the evolution of a life form from single-cell beginnings all the way to its eventual evolution as a space-faring race. Here's an excerpt from the review:

The graphics of Spore are breathtaking. The trees are beautiful, the creatures are mostly well animated, every action has a corresponding effect, and no effect has been left out. The majority of the graphics are found in the space stage, but that makes sense when you consider the fact that it's easily fifty times as long as any of the other stages.

The main area of Spore's graphics, however, is the portion of Spore that no one can deny is absolutely excellent, the editors. The procedural generation of creature animations, vehicle movement, and spaceship effects are amazing. When you create a creature with no legs at all, it slithers along the ground. When you create a car with a jet attached and four wheels, it leaves a vapor trail and rolls along the ground. When you create a creature with a single leg, it hops along as you'd expect. The editors are an incredible technological marvel, and well worth the price of the game by themselves.
