Critic Reviews for Project Spark

Project Spark is an imaginative and rewarding game about making games. It's tough, but worth the work.

The most powerful game creation tool ever released for a console, but it's less accessible than it could be and the endless microtransactions leave a predictably sour taste.

Project Spark is whatever you want it be, but realizing your dream project can be difficult to pull off

Surprising and versatile, Project Spark is a great editor that allows you to indulge yourself in creating video games. Simple but not trivial, it allows you to develop many genres of games, however, requiring a few hours of real study and a lot of experimentation.

Microsoft's powerful game builder lets anyone with a bit of patience and a good idea create fun and original games of their own design

Project Spark is a fantastic creation tool with some severe growing pains. The complexity will scare off lots of creators, and the customization items locked behind a pay-wall will deter even more. I worry that no one will be creating gems on the system outside of a few dedicated creators. A game like this lives and dies on its community, and I am not sure Project Spark has the legs to keep things interesting for years to come.

Project Spark won't have you churning out incredible games like a development powerhouse. It will, however, provide you an accessible set of tools and assets to begin the process of bringing your dream games to life. This won't happen overnight, so plan on spending a lot of time here if you are ever going to make something memorable.
