Darkspore is a sci-fi themed dungeon crawler at heart, with a fairly spectacular collection and itemization system, a novel backstory, and layers upon layers of tactical challenge.

Most of us remember the ridiculously overhyped thought experiment that was Spore from a few years back. Will Wright promised the universe, and yet, somehow, the universe from the amoeba up didn't add up to a compelling gameplay experience. Maxis drew from that title's name, one-of-a-kind character creator, and little else and created the singularly evolved action RPG Darkspore. Rather than doing something completely ridiculous with Spore's premise, Darkspore is a sci-fi themed dungeon crawler at heart, with a fairly spectacular collection and itemization system, a novel backstory, and layers upon layers of tactical challenge. But does it have the fun factor that it's Sporny forebearer so disappointingly lacked? And will Darkspore hold us over until Diablo 3 makes its dubious debut, or is it destined for the bargain bin?
