Spore and Mercs 2 come out on the same day in the UK and about a week apart in the states (something like that) so what one are you getting, or are you getting both and why?
I don't get why people always make these 'what are you getting threads and put 2 games in them or something...either someone is only interested in one, neither, or they will buy both of them..its rarely a getting one or the other occasion if someone is actually interested in both.
I've played mercs 2 since a I know people who have connections to the gaming industry and it was average. Not bad, but not really good either, as for Spore that I have also played it is brilliant. It's like you start as a cell or something then the game grows to it's full potential when you start to control Planets and then the game becomes less adequate to the ones that want more action since it starts to (sort of) repeat itself from there. Not that Mercs 2 is a bad game, but I don't recommend it and I highly recommend Spore, so I'm gonna get Spore for sure (I played the full versions by the way). The games don't belong to me I played them at a friend's house.
I've decided on Spore after a lot of going back and fourth over which one to buy. Although I think most of my friends are getting Mercs 2 but if I hold off then mabye they'll patch the bugs etc away.
Also the reason I compared these to games for the people wondering was because they come out in the same day in the UK.
So roll on Friday.
"Ma7moud said:"Both, Unfortunately Mercs 2 isn't as good as I expected hopefully Spore will."If you have been excited for Spore like I have for the past few months, you will enjoy it no doubt. I'm loving it."
The only problem I think I'll have with Spore is that it will be too easy. I'm all for unique gameplay experiances but I've heard it's exremly simplistic on both combat and RTS parts. Would I really just knock down everything in my path with ease?
