Though brief, our time with Spore was enough to give us a good feel for the familiar and accessible real-time strategy action of the Civilization phase, and we caught a few glimpses of complexities to come. The game played smoothly, and the creation browser was a snap to use–our appetites are definitely whetted for further Spore action. In two weeks we’ll be down at E3 bringing you tons of new content, and you can bet we’ll have plenty more on Spore then.
