Spore Creatures features a colorful, attractive visual design paired with cute sound effects and a laid-back, spacey soundtrack. It also features some of the PC version’s online connectivity, albeit in an extremely stripped-down form. In this case, you can download other players’ creatures, which then appear within your own game as you explore. This is a neat addition, though its limited scope doesn’t give Spore Creatures much additional replay value. But no matter: On its own, Spore Creatures is still a cute–if not particularly memorable–adventure game.
