3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not fully integrated February 11, 2010
By Me
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Galactic Adventures is a good expansion, it jolts another spark of life into Spore, which, though fun, can get old. Thanks to Galactic Adventures, I'm playing Spore for the first time in months. But it doesn't feel like it. And that's the problem.

When I play, I don't think, "Oh, I feel like playing Spore," I think, "Oh, I feel like playing GA." They feel like two different entities, tied together by a loose connection: creativity. Galactic adventures is very creative, and gives you as much, if not more, creative freedom as Spore. But, this expansion not only covers only the space stage, but it doesn't even do much for the space stage. When you play adventures in space stage, it feels like you switched from playing Spore to playing GA, which you have. Once you finish, Space stage is no different.

There were many other expansions that would've been more immersed in the core game. Fans have for a long time waited for water creatures and water civilizations to be added back into the game. Allowing creatures to choose to stay underwater would affect most of the game, no?

Or just more scientific accuracy. So often the game feels shallow and oversimplified, adding just a few more scientific elements could change that.

Galactic Adventures is worth buying, yes. But it certainly isn't the best that EA/Maxis could've done and is hopefully not the direction they're headed with further expansions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for something to do in the space stage? February 3, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The space stage is huge but feels a little empty in the original. After dozens of interspecies wars and genocides, a galactic dictator can get kind of bored. With GA, there's a whole new set of actions to do, including designing levels yourself which feels even more satisfying than making your own ships (though some of the gameplay limitations are frustrating, there are work arounds online). Now, you can alternate between managing and improving your empire, expanding through wars and trade, missions for random allies, and doing these adventures. It adds a needed bit of diversity to the space stage and makes it a lot more interesting.

While the maxis made levels are excellent, some of the user created ones suck. There are exceptions to the latter, however, and the quick play function lets you dive right into adventures sorted by rating to find the diamonds in the rough. Now, if only your captain could drive vehicles...

5.0 out of 5 stars Mac user loving this game February 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Was reticent to purchase a game with complaints from Mac users, but my son insisted on spending his own money to get this game. It installed on the first try and we've had no problems. The game has been in almost constant use since it arrived in the mail. It's fun going down to the planets for adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Expansion Pack October 18, 2009
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll start with the technical subjects. Firstly, installing this game took a very long time. My dad and I had to re-install the original game, install Galactic Adventures, then get 4 updates, each of which loaded slowly, but things went in general smoothly after that. Although occasionally the game crashes, erasing all progress I haven't yet saved.

Not uncommonly, while playing an adventure, I'll accidently walk my avatar into a something, like a wall, and get stuck. Once you get stuck it's nearly impossible to get out. This glitch is very annoying, because it means the player has got to start the adventure all over again. However, there are lots of good things about this game, too. Making your very own adventures is lots of fun. You can make adventures based on real events! And, of course, you get to play adventures, too! Sometimes adventure's can be quite complicated. Some adventures are super fun. Maxis should make more adventures, though. Since Maxis adventures give your captain 100 points, while non-Maxis one usually give much less. Your captain needs these points to gain new accessories (weapons etc.)

I really like all the great new accessories. You get a wide variety of cool weapons for your captain and some of the friendly accessories are quite fun. Also Galactic Adventures lets you put exo-skeleton limbs on your creatures.

All in all Spore Galactic Adventures is an awesome expansion pack to the original game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible piracy "protections" make this unusable March 23, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR: Do not buy this game!

Spend your money on another, non-EA product that you like, instead.

I regret that I can't rate this game lower. In a nutshell, the "protections" on this game render it unplayable. In an effort to rectify my problems, I stumbled on forum, after forum, after forum of hundreds of people who, like me, purchased the game legitimately only to not be able to install it!

First, the installation didn't work--because it needed to be patched. Surely, that's no coincidence. EA releases a buggy game, knowing users will need patches to continue. Then, they restrict access by forcing you to register to receive them. Also, I don't even think you can play the game without being online and logged into their demeaning tracking servers.

After jumping through 50 million hoops during installation and registration (including customer support, I had to register no less than 4 times!!!!!), the nightmare finally ends with them refusing to let me continue:

"The registration code used for this game cannot be validated"

Not only did I PURCHASE THE GAME... I BOUGHT IT FROM EA, DIRECTLY.

To make matters worse, this is for my son. He "earned" the game with great behavior and improved grades. For all that hard work, he still hasn't been able to play ONCE and it's been WEEKS since I bought the game. I HAVE A DEGREE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE AND I CAN'T GET THE WRETCHED THING WORKING!!!

Had I downloaded the torrent, instead, my son would have been playing within an hour.

Electronic Arts' approach to piracy is backward and punishes the wrong people. Pirates still pirate. Legitimate users get screwed. Problem "amplified" not "solved.
