just be warned, you'll need at least 2G of RAM to play without having the game to crash everytime you want to clear the lift-off zone of debris before launch.

the construction is easy to run, however, getting playable fps in the launch is another story, the full game will run pretty much the same as the demo does. so you make the choice! :)

I don't think so... Spore has always been compared to universe-related games... this is just not that, I mean look at it: it has one of the steepest learning curves ever in a game, this would be a cool game to be played by an astrophysicist and even a tough challenge... It represents what would happen if you had infinite money and time to spend into a space program.
