I haven’t really read much of the reviews…that’s not typically my thing, especially after Evolve and how skewed people’s opinions are based on, well, baselessness…lol. I really should check and see if other people had some of my issues. I just found it clunky to design a bot, and I was spending far too much time just tinkering with the chasis…so much I never actually made it to a finished state because something always kept going wrong and looking slightly wonky. I started with a more complex 2 prong design, and eventually just went for a simple wedge, arrow-head design, and it just frustrated me too much. I don’t have a lot of time to play games at the moment, so when I do I want them to be more intuitive and easy to grasp. That is not to say you will have my issues. I was just expecting something easier for me, and more fluid, I guess, that would allow anybody to design something fast and easy on the fly like monster in Spore. Yes, you can work on a creature in Spore for hours, but you always feel like you’re getting somewhere and not having any trouble. The controls worked smooth and were pretty obvious to use. I started over multiple times in the bot lab trying to do a very basic design and spent a full hour on the wedge, only to have it just look broken and not even get to the next step of adding components. All I wanted was a perfect mirror on both sides of the chasis and I couldn’t pull it off even when using the barest points of manipulation you could have. I feel it should not have taken longer than 15-20 minutes to create the chasis and move on to the next step, but I never got there.
