Amazing game complexity and offers a great amount of varied play time. It's an older game, but I'm surprised more companies have not caught onto this type of progressive game play.

Has a few flaws, then again so does every game.

I--------------
Good traits
I--------------

It allows more content for SPORE

You can make your own adventures on your own planet with your own creatures.

More options for your space captain, including a name, crew and even an outfitter.

(This is just from my experience, but SPORE Galatic Adventures crashes less than the normal SPORE does.)

Lets your captain be more involved in the world.

I-------------
Bad Traits
I-------------

Still crashes for me. (Using Windows 10)

You have limited editing when it comes to creating your adventure.

Animations could be a bit more polished

Should have more options for props
I--------------
Overall this is a very fun game and I find myself sitting for hours on end making adventures and going through them, also spending time going through space looking for others or my own adventures. It really lets the player and their creations into the SPORE universe allowing them to become more involved.

[Same review as SPORE]

I'll start with this: I did not have any hype when this game came out, I was playing other games and probably was not even aware of this game so I have not paid 80$ nor had hype for this game.

It's a good game, it has a lot of flaws but it's a good game, there could be better animations because those in game are clunky and all glitchy, we should have more freedom such as being able to play as an epic, more way of creating a creature (things such assemetry), more and a lot more parts for the creatures, planet creator/editor, being able to create our own parts, perhaps some God powers for when you're far in the game, more diversity, better textures, better models (the parts you put on your creature, some times, It's just too weird that it is seriously annoying to watch your creation) and lot of other things as well as gameplay stuff.
For example, why can't we see tribes while in the creature stage or even the other stages from later? The only thing I have seen are the ships and that's rare plus they barely do anything.

It's a great sandbox game, it's the only one that exist that does that other than the up-coming indie game that looks similar, called The Universim.

Even though it's good, it's pretty basic, nothing complexe, not so great, doesn't have a lot of content and missing lot of stuff that it should have to make it the greatest experience of all.

But after all, It is the only one in this exact genre so go for it, it's totally worth it while on sale.


SPORE Galactic Adventures: A cool addition to the game, it adds a lot of replay ability but there are also lot of problems with the expansion, lot of bug, glitches and all the clunky problems you had in SPORE.
Would still suggest it while on sale so you're better getting the complete pack while it's on sale for a few dollars.


7.5/10 - SPORE
8/10 - SPORE Galactic Adventures - Not the greatest expansion ever but still better than most of the "expansions", DLCs and microtransactions crap we get today.

Spawned from an astroid. ate everything in sight, except the herbs because all meat tastes like bacon. Grew one leg and bounced up on land. Murder killed until tribal stage. copy paste until civil stage copy paste until space age. Made a crappy version of the Futurama Planet Express ship. Unlocked terraforming and used it on enemy planet. Started an intergalactic war between all of my allies and the Grox. Grox as dead as my purposfully bad grammar. just now recovering from that playsession that took up 21 straight hours. The end of the space age for me went like this.

Spore is really fun, you get to start life as a cell and evolve up to being super intelligent. Best part is you can customize everything on your creature from how it looks to if its a herbivore, omnivore or carnivore. My first creature ended up looking like some weird pink cow by generation 7 lol.

I recommend buying Spore with the creepy & cute pack and the galactic adventures DLC. But something to note is that Steam has a bug and lists the DLC as seperate games on your library. You MUST install all 3 separately and then run galactic adventures to have access to the base game, the creepy and cute pack and galactic adventures.

Got this on a Steam Summer Sale for $4.99 USD BTW. Just going to throw that out there.

One thing to note: You have to have the Spore core game bought and installed on Steam for this to work.

WARNING: SPORE ISN'T SUPPORTED ON WINDOWS 10 BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK

Anyways to the review:

Spore Galactic Adventures is expansion pack to Spore a game about evolution. In this expansion you create your own adventures. an Adventure is when you land on a planet and do tasks and goals to complete a "adventure". Even with the games cartoonish look, there is lots of stuff you can do with it. Everything is up to you. Now let's get down to the review

PROS:
+ Addicting
+ You can use all the editors from the core game in your adventure
+ Fairly decent NPC AI
+ Complexity always got on my nerves, but this time there's still complexity although it is set really high
+ KILLING INOCCENT CREATURES
+ You can make npcs talk (Chat bubbles, no voice acting)
+ Even though you launch it seperatly, you can still play normal spore
+ Lots of customization for adventures
+ Nice UI
+ Easy Terraforming
I will add to this list when I find more.

CONS:
- Limited voice acting. I know they don't speak they just make noises, but sometimes it feels like their not even talking.
- F*CKING BUILDINGS DON'T PLACE ON THE GROUND PROPERLY. THERE ALWAYS FLOATING HALFWAY IN THE AIR.
- Terrible veichle AI. They don't follow their paths and run in to stuff.
- Incredibly buggy. I sometimes get stuck in roofs and just annoying bugs like that. (probably since it's such a big game)
- Can't drive veichles. You can technicly ride them, but really you just stand on top of them
- Can't create you own fixed objects and game mechanics (Gates, keys, stuff like that). You can disguse them as other objects though.
Will add more when I find more.

7/10 doesn't sound like the Pros are better, but they are better. Very fun I would get it if you like spores editors.

This game is a masterpiece in my opinion.

I'm pretty sure I spent 3000+ hours on this game when I was a bit younger.

The game never ends with this expansion. With this expansion, the game you can finish in one day, changes into a game you can play for years.

I spent most time creating adventures in the adventure editor. Players can create the weirdest things with countless objects in the game. It felt great to make the fantasies in my mind about aliens and monsters an actual story in a game that everyone can play.
But ofcourse, not everyone likes creating these adventures, since it's pretty boring sometimes: Sometimes you spend over 3 days to finish just one adventure. And I made over 200 hah.

If you don't like creating adventures, you can go to the God Almighty massive Sporepedia where thousands of adventures made by other players are waiting to be played. By doing these, you gain XP for one of your captains, a creature you made who can be used for playing adventures and the whole evolution story mode thing.

Gotta be honest, I never finished the campaign after playing this for 3000 hours. I never even tried. I spent most time creating levels, but I also spent a lot of time playing them.

If you like creating things, Spore is the game for you. If you want to take it a step further by using the things you make however you want, this expansion is the expansion for you.

my time line

-makes shrek best i can

-turns out to be actually pretty good

-starts from cell stage

-uses sporepedia for shrek in creature stage

-top of the ogre chain[food chain]

-gets a brain

-dominates tribe rivals

-even smarter

-makes high tech ogre everything

-takes over planet my swamp in the civilian stage

-ends up as a galactic shrek with a mighty donkey spaceship

-kills grox after 2 weeks lol

-its all ogre now

moral of the story is dont mess with the planet my swamp and stay away from my army of shreks...
then I made like five shrek adventures.... defend the swamp and such on... you can really make anything you want in this game.. you start off in the cell stage and end up as a galactic empire. it takes like 5-6 hours to end up in space but it feels like the close to 3 billion years youre creature lived for... this game is the best time waister of all time :O

ive played a hell of alot more then 2.4 hours... its just bin in offline mode and my hours didnt save... im at 11 hours a day ever since i got it[expansion packs] GET THIS GAME you GAMER, you cant buy the game down here... scroll up and download it[after you buy it]

This ♥♥♥♥ was my CHILDHOOD!!!!! I nabbed the SPORE bundle for $12.99 (my game disks got damaged and the graphics got ♥♥♥♥ed up and couldn't be fixed) during the Steam Summer Sales this year to relive the good times and my nostalgia levels are off the charts already. I only got this game a week ago and I already hav 70 hours invested in this game. It was super addictive back in the day and it still is today, despite the community being a bit...quiet, these days.

Enough ramblings. here are the pros and cons:

Pros:

1) You feel like a god

2) Can make almost anything you want

3) Easy controls

4) Creature Creator's easy to work with

5) A cheat menu is made easily accessible by pressing Contrl + Shift + C and typing in help

6) SPACE!

7) No invisible walls

8) True open world game

Cons:

1) Glitches are frequent

2) You might get randomly logged out

3) Creating adventures is difficult starting out

4) Maxis has abandoned the game, so don't expect any new updates or bug fixes
