Darkspore Is Amazon's Deal of the Day
Developer Maxis has gone in a different direction with the recent sci-fi endeavor Darkspore. The game, which allows you to create and customize your own creatures, is based on a Diablo-like gameplay formula set in a futuristic environment, making for a unique action RPG experience. The game has its flaws, but it's still a worthwhile experience for fans of the genre.
If you have yet to purchase Darkspore, head over to Amazon.com. For today only, the online retailer is offering Maxis' latest title at 40 percent off. That's $20 off the game's original price.
Until midnight tonight, you can get this compelling sci-fi action RPG for just $29.99. Amazon has both retail and digital versions of the game. So if you're like me and you enjoy looking at a game's shiny box and manual, you can pick up the physical copy and wait for it to arrive in the mail. Or if you'd rather play the game the moment you pay for it, you can buy the downloadable version for the same price.
Darkspore has received decent critical reception. While the game's story and initial gameplay aren't very strong, the experience is said to deepen the further you progress into the game. And with robust and growing customization options and a compelling co-op mode, the game is certain to appeal to plenty of gamers.
