Will Wright, the creator of Sim City, The Sims and now Spore has a few words for his critics in which we takes a look at the numbers--sales vs. critical:
"Spore has more depth than, let's say, The Sims did. But we looked at the Metacritic scores for Sims 2, which was around 90, and something like Half-Life, which was 97, and we decided - quite a while back - that we would rather have the Metacritic and sales of Sims 2 than the Metacritic and sales of Half-Life."
Spore's current Metacritic average is a more-than-respectable 87, and sales are likely through the roof!
That Will Wright is a straight talker!
