I have watched the whole thing and I can honestly say I am speechless; I can't describe how much I want the game now.
I am very excited about this; it is like the perfect game that could be made in my eyes.
I've seen a lot; Spore has the potential to be revolutionary, but as Will Wright said, Spore is just a bunch of games stitched together (SimLife + SimAnt + "SimTribe" + SimCity + Civilization + a bit of CNC + Alpha Centuri). I'd say I'm expecting this kind of game for a while, but I'm afraid that too much of the game is hard-coded and not flexible enough (for instance, it limits you to "life as we know it" and not other forms of life, like non-carbon based, for example)
