Spore reviewed by Ars Technica

From the article:

"Spore is a game about evolution, but evolution that's intelligently designed by the choices you make. Players design their creatures' traits, and those traits ultimately influence the civilization. The game is segmented into five phases of the evolutionary scale: Cell, Creature, Tribal, Civilization, and Space, with each stage presenting a different kind of game-play; a progress bar along the bottom of your screen marks how far along you are within each evolutionary stage. This is a game that wants you to feel comfortable playing and exploring; the penalty for "dying" is not severe."

The first phase of the game is similar to FLOW (created by the same folks as Spore) which you can play online for free here!
