Will it succeed? There’s no way to know. No one has been able to get their hands on EA’s game and they probably won’t for a couple weeks. But once that happens and reviewers and consumers start living in Spore, the reviews will trickle in and we’ll find out if it lives up to the hype or if it fails miserably.
I do believe Spore will do amazingly well. At this point with all of the previews and information on the game, I don’t even think it will be possible for the game to fail. But that is only one man’s opinion.
