Britain's most influential games journalist inspired me to go and review the Spore Creature Creator for Eurogamer. We'll be doing a RPS Verdict on it soon enough, I suspect, but I've already shot my critical wad here. I mainly think it's a miraculous piece of software, but spend a lot of time analysing the disenters' reservations with it: "In other words, while the Spore Creature Creator lets you play god, it doesn't let you be god." Fancy words ahoy, leavened with the usual nob gags.
Lob 'em in your Creatures directory, and you're away.
