It's only as cartoony as you make it.

Look at the creatures in this wallpaper: http://home.nycap.rr.com/wydraz/spore/Spore_wallpaper01.jpg and you can see only one of the three featured there would be considered "cartoony". The other two are quite realistic looking if you ask me.

I just think it depends on how you make your creatures. The ones we've seen in the recent videos are cartoony because that's how they were built. If you want more realistic creatures in your galaxy, make them that way.

realism is fine, the best would a realism/cartoon switch to change the overall look of the game  ::)

That bird creatue looked very good, I think it will be difficult for most spore players to make good content, that could be another reason will has approched from the cartoony direction. Realy good content could probbly make anything thay want, given enough time. New players are more likely able to build playable cartoony creature that look quite good, than being able to build a klingon care bare cockroach monster from the planet poop.

True, but even if 1% can do it, then assuming an eventual 100,000 users, there will be over a thousand good content makers in the community!

I for one, want to create a creature with big eyes that isn't cartoony...

Do you think their will be eye parts for that?

How will it synch if you have normal eyes, and everything else has cartoon eyes?

so what? the game is a bit cartoony, does it matter, you can make your creature look evil and then you can only download other noncartoony creatures

An evil pixar reject is still a cartoon, you might aswell have said cartoons dont have villians.

the creature stage only looks cartoony because of how imaginative the creatures are, make you creature look realistic and all will be well.

Ok one thing... why do all the eyes of the tide pool phase have their eyes pointing straight up. Can we not have that or is that the way all tide pool creatures look cause that looks absolutely retarded...

i wish that people would think about what they were going to complain about when it was realistic, probably you can't make an entire universe with crysis phisics and realism, because then you need a 10.000$ 2 x 8 core workstation :P WHo is going to buy that ?

Spore is spore, like the simpsons are the simpsons, it's a style which I like. Ofcoruse People can not like the style: but then there will be complaints about system specs i'm sure.

WW has said a ton of times the specs will be near-Sims 2 requirements.
