Disappointed by Spore’s lack of interaction with the creatures on an individual level? Finding the current game variety lacking? Want something that allows you to raise actually semi-intelligent life? Then try an older game!
Docking Station ( a free, “add on” to Creatures 3 that does not actually REQUIRE Creatures 3 ) is still a fairly healthy, original and, most of all, FUN game.
