I’ve just seen a video demonstrating the Maxis game Spore. This game is sort of a sim-life-evolution game. Looks really interesting and promising.
Personally, I am all but finished with the game Psychonauts on the Xbox. This was a stellar game. If you have a platform it runs on and like quirky & bizarre platformers, this game is a must play. It is a pity it didn’t get more notice.
