Multiplayer: no multiplayer

The program integrates into the campaign of Spore and deals exclusively with the last of the five stages of evolution, the space phase. In it, you will no longer receive only generic random orders, but also encounter handbuilt missions, the result from the space ship and down to the planet's surface. Better still, you can even create your own adventure! What sounds promising, quickly reaches its technical and mechanical game limits, because the new Spore missions are on Simple-level.

So far, the pilot your spaceship remained in Spore anonymous. Now he is a hero and given a name missed. This also happens when you load after installing Galactic Adventures a previously saved game universe. The captain as the central figure you need because he always beaming down in the new missions to the planet and there is controlled by you directly, as in the creature phase of the main game. By successfully managed inserts collects the captain of experience, rising to the rank and switches new equipment freely about energy weapon or a protective armor. You stick him in the ordinary creatures editor on the body. Also new: If your pilot is conveyed often enough, he can earn a super weapon for his spaceship. This increases the motivation in the Space Stage.

The most galactic adventures are undemanding according to the simple options. Time we beat ourselves in a ruined temple with always the same spiders, sometimes we run out of conversation partner to talk to. Some game concepts not go on because Spore is too limited. In an Alien base we should sneak past guards, for example, to what is due to the awkward control not so easy. When we discovered that also makes nothing - we just run away. The narrow-AI creatures fails to "Search and Track" tasks complete, the guards get caught in boxes, and remains to be discovered anyway without any consequences. A combat mission, however, we create almost entirely by doing nothing - our allies put the attacker to alone. The balance is shaking in every nook and cranny.

Spore is a simple game. Because the addon does not change. Therefore, can be with him even simple adventure make. Instead enhance spore galactic adventures lift out his weaknesses. With the addition of galactic adventures of the space of the stage feels much more complete; it was already the largest section of the game, but now it has to do more variety and stuff. At the same time, Galactic Adventures Spore is not really boost other stages, and that's where there's definitely room for improvement. I recommend it only for real spore fans!

Score: 63 / 100

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 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.

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.

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!

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

If only the first two stages were longer. Those are the best parts of the entire series. I purchased the entire series for 12.99$ a penny more and it wouldn't have been worth it. I'd only recommend this to past players who want to try their hand again at creating an epic monster. Creature Creation portion is definitely where I spend the majority of my game time.

overall 6/10

-1 for abandonment EA

This game is incredibly great. This game is by far the best space civilization game I have played. and it also has all those other stages like creatur. But EA has abandond this game. Thats right, no more updates no more bug fixes, not even the extremely huge ones. It pains me that EA just took a really great game and punched a whole through it. and all the great creators have stopped playing and stop creating and just disappeared.

Now it was very tempting to say that i should not recommend this game, but then I thought of its pros, and SO many outnumbered the cons. With its seemingly infinite files and an interesting load screen. the references in the adventures, and the grox, and the galaxy. Setting a goal to destroy the grox and set a colony on EVERY single planet in existance, or to allie with the grox and destroy EVERY single planet in existance is a HUGE goal. To find the "third rock from sol" and setting a colony. Completing the all the acheivments. It is one heck of a game, and I'd say that this game is most certainly worth your time. And who knows, maybe EA will get their minds staight and patch this game up some day, and maybe have commercials on the TV and get more players on.

I like evolving my own species. How about you? I'm introducing Spore: Galactic Adventures. The original Spore does the same, Galactic Adventures is just an expansion pack, improving Space stage only. When I first started this game, I was expecting, not a only a galaxy, but an entire universe to explore. I was a bit disappointed when I found out that it was only a galaxy to explore.

What do you do in Spore? You evolve your customizable species from a single cell stage to a technologically advanced species capable of interstellar space travel. But keep one thing in mind...

You are not alone...

In the galaxy, other aliens will be evolving on another habitable planet. They could be in creature, tribal, civilization or even in space stage. You can even communicate and buy items from them.

When your in interstellar space, you can go to other solar systems and setup a colony on one of those planets or a gas giant moon.

Whatever your species is, a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore, the amount of planets you can visit is a larger number than all stars in the galaxy.

The Galactic Adventures pack adds a lot of content to spore, and is fun to play with. It allows you to once again return to the surface of planets in the space stage, and can extend the replay value of spore. If you like spore but wish you could customize your character and control your creature on an individual level in the space stage, or if you would like to edit planets and create missions, then Galactic Adventures is a good pick.
