Comment Re:It's not a game.... (Score 1) 605

The biggest disappointment imo is that it's not the toy it was supposed to be. I was looking forward to and incredibly fun an educational experience, as seen here:

Sadly, nearly all of the dynamic, procedural, scientific and in-depth content is removed from the game that was released.

I so wanted to shape my own planet and play with a fully dynamic ecosystem, but everything about that is either removed or reduced to a static command.

It's a series of linear mini-games with a couple of static actions in each. Not even the only sandbox environment left, the creature editor, is fully dynamic anymore, using canned animations with just a little interpolation instead of something fully procedural.

The released game is sadly stuck between being a toy and a game, without being educational at all now.
