“Galactic Adventures” is the first expansion pack for “Spore,” and it offers many new opportunities to players. In the original game, your creature ascends through evolution to become the pilot of a space ship. You fly through space and explore planets and do missions for alien empires. The catch is that your creature is never visible. All you see is the ship.

However, with the “Galactic Adventures” expansion, you can beam your space captain down to planets and do missions ranging from intense action to peaceful diplomacy. Your captain can unlock and get suited up with all new equipment like missile launchers and jet packs. As if that wasn't enough, you can create your own planets and adventures as well!

Decide on everything from landscape to atmospheric density, temperature, and abundance of flora. Then you can add creatures, buildings, objects, and flora (watch out for the complexity meter, which stops you from overloading your world).

You can also put your character on an allied team or one of three enemy teams. Create its movement as well: make it stand still, wander the world, or patrol a set area.

After you've perfected your planet, make missions by setting goals for your space captain. Once you've set up an adventure, you can test it and experience your world first hand. If you create an online spore account, you can share adventures with others and get feedback.

There is lots more to “Galactic Adventures,” so if you think it sounds interesting, buy it (you'll need the original “Spore” too). Happy playing!

Spore is awesome the game lets you travel the galaxy. There are over 500,000 unique planets to explore! That's just unbelievable! Also you can create any type of creature and all the creatures you run into are from other players. No other game can claim this.. The best part of this game is the space phase, you could spend a lifetime exploring all the planets and meeting new creatures.. This game is limitless, there is no other game that comes close to this one. <b><a href="htt... (more »)

Yeah, I definitely agree that Spore, including Spore Galactic Adventures is pretty much the best game there is. I love exploring the galaxy, and I like it when I run into my own creations as a space stage civilization.It's really neat!
