Great game, but issues when activating on Origin.
on December 27, 2012
Spore is one of those games that you can just get lost in for weeks at a time. You start out as a single cell organism, and evolve all the way through to a space faring galactic civilization. It has that same Maxis charm that makes The Sims so great. For the price, it is an absolute steal. The Galactic Adventures expansion adds much more depth to the game's already mind blowing Space Stage. Overall one of the more addicting titles out there, despite being a few years old.
I do have to note that if you use Origin, you may encounter an issue with your product keys. Both myself and a friend purchased this bundle, and we both encountered the same issue. The key Amazon gives you for the original Spore game simply would not register on Origin. The Galactic Adventures and Creepy/Cute Pack keys worked fine though. Should you encounter this issue, simply go to Origin help and choose Live Chat. You may have to wait a few minutes. They will ask you for your email address and the game key, and they will add the game to your collection that way. Not a major issue but it should be noted.
