I have a feeling that the system requirements will be high for this game. Heck, when sims2 was out, midrange graphic cards suffered to play it smoothly.

It uses cellshaded like graphics, which can never get old. And the gameplay system is a first in the sim series, and in games alone.

This game will be the shit. Will Write has created some damn good games, and I think they have put some serious time to make sure this one comes out right. I remember reading about this over 2 years ago and thinking it looked great. I was thinking it got cancelled and then a release date is announced. Should be great.

Oh, and I don't think anybody was expecting crysis to be revolutionary in any way but the graphics. That is what everyone was excited about, and rightfully so, they were spectacular. This is a little different because what makes this so interesting is the gameplay. And any gamer knows, that is where the heart of the experience lies. And spore seems like it will have it in spades..

its probably related to the metal in your head.

You really had to see the movies for spore to understand its scope, crysis... had potential. it didnt live up to it.
