      Spore vs Orbiter opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Spore is more akin to Minecraft as game of creative play, whereas Orbiter is a "game" for simulating the space-flight experience.

      Orbiter is a spaceflight simulator that has a 1:1 replica of the Solar System and utilises realistic spaceflight physics, while Spore is more of a casual game that focus on the evolution of your species from its origin (where spaceflight is only a small part of it), set in a procedural galaxy with cartoony graphics.

      Kerbal Space Program vs Orbiter opinions
      Some users think Kerbal Space Program is a great alternative to Orbiter, some don't.
      KSP, while cool in itself, is not that much like Orbiter. The two shares the space-thing setting, but similarities kinda end there. Orbiter is a full-blown simulator, while KSP provides more of a casual (good!) experience for those who likes space, spaceships, etc (KSP also lets you create and improve along the way your spaceship)
