Just got back from PC World in Highgate, Birmingham and they had Spore on sale for £1.97! I got myself a copy and there were atleast 6 more left about an hour ago. And yes, it is Spore, the full game, and not that creature creator thing or the expansion! I triple checked before buying because I almost couldn't believe it. Shame they didn't have Modern Warfare 2 which is what I went to get in the first place. Still I would say it was worth the trip.
Spore is your own personal universe in a box. In this universe you can create and evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations and even sculpt entire worlds. In Spore you have a variety of creation tools at your disposal that allow you to customise nearly every aspect of your universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even spaceships. While Spore is a single player game, your creations and other players' creations are automatically shared between your galaxy and theirs, providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play.
The Spore universe is made up of five phases with different challenges and goals. You may choose to start with the cell phase and nurture one species from its humble aquatic origins to its evolution as a sentient species. Or you may decide to start building tribes or civilizations on multiple planets. What you do with your universe is up to you.
Sandbox Gameplay - Create our own personal universe where you can evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations and even sculpt entire worlds.
Evolutionary Gameplay - Lead your species through stages of evolution from pond-scum to galactic god in Spore's campaign mode.
World Creators - Easy-to-use editors allow you to make everything from creatures and buildings to vehicles and spaceships.
Shared Content - Spore automatically shares your creations with other players through the Internet. And in your game, you'll explore and interact with a galaxy of content created by other players.
