After the long-awaited “No Man’s Sky” came out, many gamers felt disappointed because of the many broken promises by Hello Games, terrible performance on PC and the fact that the game had a $60 launch price (that´s still the price for NMS sky at the moment…). So much so that many Gamers have compared the letdown of “No Man’s Sky” launch to what happened when “Spore” got released back in 2008 (a game that was going to combine the Action genre with RTS and a God Game, but it ended up being five shallow mini-games combined into a big game according to many).

“Spore” has a lot of positive reviews on Steam at the moment.

Would you like to see a “Spore 2” happen?

So as you might imagine, I got quite surprised when I heard that “Spore” has been doing truly well for itself on steam (at least with regards to review scores). As the game has received some very positive overall reviews as of lately. So apparently wounds do heal over time, and maybe the gamers which were disappointed when “Spore” launched learned to appreciate the game for what it was, not to mention that as of now you could get “Spore” and all its DLC for $10 which many would consider more than a fair price.

It appears as if people like “Spore” much more than they like “No Man´s Sky”. In the matter of fact, Gamers even recommend people to pick up “Spore” instead of “No Man´s Sky”.

“Spore” (2008) Vs “No Man´s Sky” (2016) 1 – 0!

That´s just the half it though. You see. I found it to be rather interesting to see that the top reviews for the past month seem to be from people who were truly unhappy and really mad at No Man’s Sky, In what I can only describe as an act of Reverse Steam Bombing, while Steam Bombing has been used to punish a game or company with bad reviews in this case gamers decided to show appreciation for a 7-year-old game that in their opinion is much better than “No Man’s Sky”.

give us spore 2

I find it to be somewhat funny that “No Man´s Sky” has created a demand for a sequel to “Spore” (not to mention the.

Furthermore, even in one of the reviews one of the fans is asking for an “SPORE 2!”, and while I’m not against the idea itself. One should ask him or herself if we really can trust EA and Maxis to make an honest attempt at creating anything experimental like SPORE again? Only time will tell.

And with that said, what´s your take on this matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
