Spore Galactic Adventures (PC)

 

Some expansion packs offer more of the same, but Spore Galactic Adventures is not one of them. In fact, it adds an entirely new facet of gameplay to the original game's space stage: adventures that beam your captain onto a planetary surface and send...

This was supposed to let us design fun missions and spice up the Space phase. It doesn't

Creating missions is almost fun ; Some good missions will be made eventually ; Gives Spore-addicts more to do

New missions are short and bad ; Mission creation cripples creativity ; Exorbitant cost for nothing worthy of play

If Spore’s combat had been fun, or its social minigame interesting, it might have been worth wrestling past these claustrophobic limitations, or waiting for the community to do so. As it is, there’s still some entertainment in designing a cool planet,...

A Spore spin-off feels way too hemmed in.

The galaxy is mostly empty. So is Galactic Adventures.

A real love-hate relationship -- hate those who do not love it.

Everything you wanted to do, that they didn't already do, you can now do

Okay, not really. It's still got a few pretty in-yer-face limitations, a bug or 26, and some tedium

Roll your own deep space adventures in the zaniest Spore story yet.

For creative types looking to craft new adventures and share them with fellow players, Galactic Adventures is a must play. Action fans, on the other hand, that feel burned over Spore's simplistic approach to ground-based combat (sadly, all combat must...

Spore's first full expansion is overflowing with wit and charm, and it offers resourceful players a chance to get creative.

Fantastic adventure creation tool inspires the imagination ; Successfully brings the charm of the creature stage to the space stage ; Leveling up your captain adds a nice sense of progression ; Online sharing tools are unparalleled

Some tool imitations and other creation issues ; Sensitive collision detection and texture pop-in

Build your own adventure.

With the addition of Galactic Adventures the space stage feels much more complete; it was already the largest section of the game, but now it has more variety and stuff to do. At the same time, Galactic Adventures doesn't really boost Spore's other...

And just like with creatures, buildings and so on, your adventures can be shared online. As you fly about the universe, you will experience player-created adventures, and your own will be pulled into the galaxies of other players as well. The...

Spore: Galactic Adventures (PC, Mac) review

 

Hey! Remember Spore? It's better known as What Will Wright Did After The Sims, it was meant to be the second coming, and it turned out to be… um, pretty good, I guess. A classic victim of its own hype, Spore could never really have delivered on all its...

On the whole, Galactic Adventures is a good bit of fun, let down by naff controls and the fact that 95% of the people producing content for it are total morons. It's certainly a more interesting expansion than, say, anything that's ever been released...

Finally, Flange-face and his winky army get their very own adventure…

It has potential, but its value is only going to improve inversely with the price.
