The ultimate God game, an evolutionary escapade, a life simulation and a massive single-player online game – Spore has been described in many ways, but it’s a tough title to pin down.

Designed by the creator of Sims,Will Wright, it’s an ingenious, complicated and quite frankly massive game. Players start with a single-cell organism and end up creating tribes, civilisations and eventually – if they succeed – ruling the universe. From fashioning your own creatures to building a functioning society, this is epic gaming. Block out the next few weeks of your social life.
