    Great game....at first, but it becomes increasingly apparent that some retouching is needed. It offers some great game play, but it does take to long to find good missions after a while. In terms of retouching they need to change the spore cast system to allow you to get more missions faster. Also I was really hoping for the ability to walk around on any planet, not just adventure. $30 is Great game....at first, but it becomes increasingly apparent that some retouching is needed.

    From an adult gamers perspective, I am not very keen on this game. I get bored with it very quickly, and I think most other adults might also. However, having seen the reaction of my 2 young children to this game, I would definitely say that this game has massive appeal to a younger market.

They can play this game all day without getting bored, and I have to make them stop. Expand

    It actually has potential to become a 10, it's just that Adventures requires too much on user contents. The mission editor is simple to use, but the end result of the adventure would be simple as well. A lot of pathing bugs are here so be careful when you're flying above a building. Ironically.. Adventureland (Tutorial adventure) has the most bugs I've found so far. Doing It actually has potential to become a 10, it's just that Adventures requires too much on user contents.

Adventureland (Tutorial adventure) has the most bugs I've found so far. Doing enough missions to level your "hero" also takes insanely long. Plus the fact that there's only a handful of new equipments. The additions to the Space Age quests are good though. Individual adventuring is horrifying for now, but in time, the list of versatile adventures will be accessible and some gems may occur.

If you ever find the game being priced below 20, then by all means, buy it. Expand

    Honestly this was a somewhat poor excuse for an expansion and really does nothing to enhance gameplay but re-hash old gameplay in the guise of something new. Yeah you get neat little missions now, woohoo, and special gadgets to attack or negotiate with... wee, but in the end its nothing more than creature stage with overly cheery dialogue.

  1. Galactic Adventures may not be a cure-all to Spore's problems though players get a massive improvement to their space phase of gaming. Finally, there is fun out there in space. [June 2009]
  2. Though the Spore catalog is stuffed with useful creations, we still found it quite slow to load and not very easy to browse. Searching by tags is fine, but the mass of content (which includes a high proportion of mediocrity) means it can be hard and mind-numbing to find the best model for your job.

    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.
