    Good, but not fully integrated, February 11, 2010

    This review is from: Spore Galactic Adventures (DVD-ROM)

    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.

    Looking for something to do in the space stage?, February 3, 2010

    This review is from: Spore Galactic Adventures (DVD-ROM)

    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…

    That sums it up for you.

    Ill get it out of the way and say YES this does, no surprise, have DRM but i bought this to support maxis, not EA.

    If your not happy with working to get your game to work then stop reading and remove this from your cart. First it updates to v1.04, which i couldn’t start because of a run time error. That was fixed when i found a fix on the forums though. Then it wanted my DVD or it would not start, I have no idea why though. I put it in ther,e fiddled with some stuff and finally by the grace of God it started.

    On to the game itself. The mission creating is fairly powerful, and yes you can make some really neat stuff. Then again all of spores user created content has great editors. Getting a basic mission working is easy. However making it actually good takes time. Settings unit paths, placing trees and objects is all done one at a time.

    Should you wish to play some maxis created levels, most require you to use one of their characters and nothing else. Now it does suck but they want the match to be fair and challenging.

    If you want to play a Community created level (which so far they suck, but a good one will take time) dont get used to the luxury of dragging them from the website to your folder (if you do that). You MUST go through GA to do this.

    One last thing i must mention is this uses a different file to start with. If you start from your basic spore.exe and dont see anything, there is another icon you should use.

    Overall Good expansion with DRM and terrible problems.
