DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! This DLC no longer connects to the servers, meaning there is practically no use for it. Since these connections are no longer available, you cannot play user levels: only the default. Take my word for it. I've been trying to warn the community about this because it seems like nothing is getting done- and yet Steam still puts it on sale. Not much of a rip off as it was a disapointment. The game offers no warning that the servers are infact down and neither does Steam, so its up to the community now. Spread the word, and please, BUYERS BEWARE!

This is one the best game I have ever played.
This game is so perfect, or almost.
First of all, this is a simulator of life evolution, with Cellular, Creature, Tribal, Civilization and Space stage. All of those are epic. The cellular one is pretty cool as introduction of the game, but a little too short, the creature stage is very nice, I love it, this is RPG, then comes Tribal and Civilizations stages which are strategical gamemodes, they are pretty cool too, and the comes the ♥♥♥♥ing best part of the game, the space stage, you are free to evolve your empire in an ENTIERE galaxy which contains more than 500 000 stars, and those stars contains between 1 and 8 planets (rocky and gas and satellites). The variety is so complex. You can encounter so many alien empires, you create your own creature along your history from Cell to Space captain. you create your own vehicules, buildings, villagers and spaceships, this is awesome.
There are some negative points though, the server are closed, EA abandonned this wonderful game, this is so sad.
Also, there are caracteristics for vehicules in Civilisation stage : speed, attack and health, that is not as customisable as in cilisation stage for the Space stage, too bad, I would have loved to see those in the space stage, but overall this is an amazing game with the biggest map ever and a very very very long gameplay.
I have played it more than 300 hours as a non-steam game ! Play it ! it worths !!!
  • I recommand particullary the Space stage if you like space and other stages if you like simulation, rpg and/or strategy.
  • The editor is very complete, you can customise what you want with lots of templates for vehicules, buildings and creatures.
  • There are lots of mods downloadables on the internet.
  • Very long gameplay and amazing freedom
  • Playable adventures on different types of planets and different kind of adventures (discretion, attack, defense, quest etc...)
  • Finally, I give the note of 9/10 to this game.

This game, can be incredibly fun if you use your imagination... Heck, ive spent atleast 130 hours on this game so far! The main new feature is, you get to make your little creatures complete tasks that you make! Instead of survival and evolution, it's exploring. Wanna see who would win in a fight, a giant pear or a giant apple? Buy this! Again, its a good game. The only thing bad about it, is that it has a few ton of bugs. Like, if someone plays your adventure, it says that they didn't, stuff like that. It's only 20 dollars, which is a fair price, but, you need the regular spore to run galactic adventures, so those both will cost you 40 bucks, but, you can just save 10 if you buy the spore + spore galactic adventures bundle. So, buy this!

This is a pretty good expansion to Spore, adding a lot more to the Space levels. However, with the inability to reach user-made levels now that servers are down (I'm pretty sure) I cannot recommend buying this over regular Spore, as all it adds is the 12 or so preloaded Maxis levels.

Amazing game. So fun! has a good amount of variety. Obviously not for everyone, but if you enjoy creating creatures its worth checking out for that alone. Also it's great for those who want to explore galaxys or maybe you want to actually go from cell to spaceman who knows. Personally I loved the game though!

This addition to the game of spore is of great value. It adds in some fantastic adventures to space stage so more people want to play space stage. I would greatly recommend this game to anyone who feels like space stage is a bit pointless.

Ever wanted to experience evolution? Starting off as a small ♥♥♥♥♥ cell, growing into a primal ♥♥♥♥♥ creature that stalks the land and devours all with it's mighty head, then evolving further into a savage tribe of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, charging head-first into battle with their mighty spears and eventually becoming civlized, well mannered ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ driving ♥♥♥♥♥ tanks, ♥♥♥♥♥ ships and ♥♥♥♥♥ planes to controll a planet, then flying into space as a ♥♥♥♥♥ commander, flying around space and time in a ♥♥♥♥♥ ship? Then you will literally love this game.

10/10 would be immature again.

*NOTE* i have played both the original spore and this expanson pack away from steam since i had it on a disk, and when i lost it i bough it during a sale.

I personally love this game, but unless you allready have an EA accont you wont be having much fun with Galactic Adventures.

Luckuly i had the game during its golden age, where it was a bit active in terms of more content created by players and people were discovering how wonderfully strange this game was.
Sadly maxis just left it rather than keep the game going.

I do have an EA account prior to the whole server shutdown business and can still access extra adventures, but they crash upon completion.

And without completion nor new adventures this really isnt much else than a planet scenario editor with some cosmetic items for your creature

Spore is the most immersive evolution game ever made, Although it was released a few years ago this game is still just as entertaining and fun as most if not all of my more recent game purchases. there are five stages changing the game dynamics from a simple arcade style all the way to conquering galaxies in a half first person- half third person galactic adventure.

Seems like the first stages of the game are over entirely too quickly, but the galactic stage is fun.
