I'm certain to this day that DarkSpore is the most under-rated Diablo 3 clone. This game was so damn fun it took me 9 months before I was just too OP to keep playing.
The mistake they made in DarkSpore was that they didn't really advertise it. Not too many people knew about it and so it didn't blossom as it could have. I remember thinking "Man, if DarkSpore is this good, imagine what Diablo 3 is going to be."
DarkSpore was a completely original action RPG game. It had a lot of ground breaking ideas that worked well.
I remember seeing that when it was released.
I remember not giving it a chance because it was made by the people who did Spore. I and all of my friends never played Spore. All of us said the same thing when we learned it wasn't multiplayer "I'm never going to play it".
So I was pretty turned off by that fact.
It doesn't look too bad now, especially compared to D3.
I'm going to look into it more.
Response to Spore: I heard Spore sucked and so people didn't give DarkSpore a chance because of that alone. Totally different games though.
Itemization was 99% perfect. If you make it through a few levels, the bosses have a chance to drop nice legendaries. You can also risk your drops for better drops but if you die, you won't get any drops at all.
Excellent itemization in DS.
