Unfortunately it's one of the biggest let-downs of 2008 as well. When it was in its infancy it was looking to be a really awesome game that delved into the depths of evolution. Now it's been turned into the sims with a new cover. It doesn't focus on evolution, it focuses on cutesiness, look at me i can dance, sing & pose!
I'm sure the kids will love it. That is until they get to the tribal stage and have to start playing an RTS, which a lot of younger ones will have no hope of understanding.
