I'm having fun with Spore so far. (Except for my inability to spell "quadruped".) The difficulty ramp-up entering Tribal stage is pretty rough, though. But the Creature stage was getting tedious--- there is only so many times that my singing cucumber-pig creatures are amusing. On the other hand, I don't particularly like that carnivorous creatures have a goal of eradicating other species rather than merely harvesting them.

I wasn't sure whether each stage of the in-game creatures made it to Sporepedia, but my creatures page has them. I like that there is an RSS feed available for each user.

Things I'd like to see:
* Better/automated camera control.
* Camera angle indication on minimap (it shows the direction your creature points, not the way the camera is facing--- then changes for Tribal stage.)
* More consequences from creature design. (Admittedly I'm playing on Easy mode.) There are fruits up in the tree that you have to be tall or jump or fly to reach. So what? There's plenty of fruit on the ground, too--- what's my motiviation? And I should totally be able to buy a ruminant stomach to just eat grasses instead.
