  1. Spore Galactic Adventures is a welcome add-on to an already addictive and fun game. Get ready to take your Captain to brave new unseen worlds - inhabited by flying orange monkeys.
  2. Spore's first full expansion is overflowing with wit and charm, and it offers resourceful players a chance to get creative.
  3. Galactic Adventures is the most welcomed kind of add-on a game like Spore can receive. The mission editor adds a very necessary deepness to the game, and is a inviting tool for everyone feeling creative. Those missions add a sense of variety and richness to the space phase, which results in a more interesting game.

    Will Wright created a monster -- and he gave it to you to develop. And now he's batting your creative genius in the head. It'll either wake up, or it won't... but whether or not you actually experience all that Galactic Adventures has to offer, you're in for a whole lot of fun along the way.
  5. Ultimately, this Spore expansion breaks the tradition of offering more of the same, allowing us to freely design any king of adventure, which is something very valuable.
  6. At last Maxis has tapped the right vein and found pure gold and how long it lasts depends on how much people can tap their imaginations.
  7. The amount of customization is unbelievable.
  8. The adventures are a great addition to the main game, even if they don't add a ton of substance to the mix.

    The Civilization stage still feels relatively cut-and-dry, and the Tribal stage resembles a rudimentary real-time strategy game. Still, Galactic Adventures does what it sets out to do in allowing for the creation and sharing of imaginative adventures. In that regards, it's a welcome addition to Spore.
  10. 75
    It's far from perfect, but for players who want to get more out of the Spore universe, Galactic Adventures is a worthy addition.
  11. The first expansion of Spore is a triumph because of its accomplished attempt to bring something different for the fan. The deep mission editor is its main goal.

Above that, the most important part of it is the Adventure Creator itself, being the most complex, and it manages to ve varied and versatile in the same time. Just like with other creators, this one also is limited only by the player's imagination. Full Review »

This expansion pack to Spore has so much potential, but I was so disappointed when I found out that it contains very limited amount of features and missions. I believe Spore players are better off without this expansion. Full Review »
