Spore Galactic Adventures Review

1 July 2009
  • Summary: Spore Galactic Adventures, the first full expansion to the series, tries to fill that lingering black hole left in the hearts of fans of the series. There's a lot live up to in this first big push in the Spore universe. Will this be the addition that brings back those who left their creatures to drift endlessly in the void of space?
  • Pros: Endless variety of content, Very powerful and simple toolset, Very creative missions
  • Cons: Missions are a little buggy, Adventures only add a little to the overall game

  • Summary: Some expansion packs offer more of the same, but Spore Galactic Adventures is not one of them. In fact, it adds an entirely new facet of gameplay to the original game's space stage: adventures that beam your captain onto a planetary surface and send you on a short series of quests. The expansion comes with plenty of such adventures, and there are already developer-commissioned adventures ready to download for free.
  • Pros: Fantastic adventure creation tool inspires the imagination, Successfully brings the charm of the creature stage to the space stage, Leveling up your captain adds a nice sense of progression, Online sharing tools are unparalleled
  • Cons: Some tool imitations and other creation issues, Sensitive collision detection and texture pop-in

Spore: Galactic Adventures review

Gameplanet
15 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Spore: Galactic Adventures is the expansion to Maxis’ visionary title, Spore. The game will see you beaming down to the surface of planets Star Trek-style to complete missions on behalf of numerous galactic empires. The developer missions may be ordinary but the Adventure Creator that comes with the expansion supersizes the incredible creative license of the original game.
  • Pros: The expansion adds both a new dimension and some pleasant variety to the galactic phase of the original Spore. Creative tools unlike any you’re likely to have tinkered with allow you to easily design your own adventures and share them with others online. In time, the volume of quality user-generated content will mean you rarely get bored or bogged down in repetition.
  • Cons: Patience is a rare virtue when you’ve paid for something. As always with user-generated content, there’s a lot of rough between the rare diamonds. User controls during planet-side missions are clumsy, detail can be slow to load and computer AI can be frustrating. The patch that accompanies the expansion comes with a raft of issues.

  • Excerpt: Spore var et spil, der var svært at sætte i boks. Det satte en ny standard for bruger-defineret indhold i et spil, men modtog alligevel lunkne anmeldelser, da mange fandt selve gameplayet lidt for fattigt. Nu er den første udvidelse til spillet klar og vi ser på om EA griber chancen og forbedrer det originale koncept.
