In case our hands-on with Darkspore's action-packed single-player and competitive multiplayer battles weren't enough to whet your appetite for the game, perhaps the full beta trailer will do the trick.

Watching this trailer for Darkspore's beta test makes me wish I had more time last week to delve into the customization facet of the game. I was in a rush, unfortunately, tasked with getting to a certain level so I could unlock player-versus-player combat before all of the Maxis folks took off, so this trailer gives me a good look at what I missed.

You don't have to miss it. Head over to the Darkspore website and sign up for the upcoming public beta test and perhaps you'll get to play everything I played and more.
