I wasn't that crazy overall with his performance.
He played a decent enough Vulcan but yeah, his performance (and look) fell way short of Nimoy, both superficially and in essence.

If they had waited a few years they could have had Benedict Cumberbatch : (
In fairness, he has been written less Spock-like too. The guy looks the part and sounds OK too. It's what he says and does that is a little off, and that's writing.
Spock as written in ST09 seems consistent with what was seen in TOS. ST09 touches on many of the themes that were explored by Spock's character in TOS. If you think Spock is a cold, emotionless automaton ruled by logic, then you don't know Spock.
