I hate when games are addictive. They can be horrible games, but you buy and play them anyway.
Not even mentioning DRM - the graphics were messed up before the patch, the saved creatures still do a weird Siamese twin thing in the Sporepedia, and the different stages are poorly glued together. It feels like they all went to separate rooms, each made a stage, and then they just slapped it together and called it good. Not even the controls are the same for each stage!
It's just ridiculous. And then Will Wright comes out and says himself that he dumbed down
the game so he could make more money from the casual audience.
I just don't get it. I want to like him and the game. But I can't.
And where was all the beta testing? These issues should have been solved pre-ship.
