I don't understand why anyone in their right mind would spend $20.00 for a few extra parts that could have been included in the full game and will have no effect whatsoever past the creature phase. Especially since the game needs a new update more than anything after the last one completely screwed up tons of people's game.

.....for $20?

Dude, whatever.

If you want to fly that flag, you gotta pay.  Raise those colors!

The Sims: Stuff Packs, Spore: Parts Packs... all overpriced "expansions" that should be free or damn near it.

True, but if I could keep putting out trivial amounts of content and have a bunch of fools pay for it every time, I have to admit I'd do it too.

If that's really just going to be more creature parts then nobody should buy that for 20 bucks. It's insane that they are releasing an expansion pack about 2 months after the first game came out.

Bah oh well, I'll stick with the regular stuff, thanks.

Whatever, all these extra parts and stuff don't really matter. They have no actual function.

I refuse to buy a $20 parts pack.

Voice with your dollars.

I fell for it with the original Sims with its 7 expansions, but I stopped there.  I bought Spore, but I'm skipping any and all expansions and stuff packs.

If it's a ton of parts, I'll probably buy it. I'm already sick of a lot of what the games come with. I paid $10 for the Creature Creator, this could be worth it.

I really want a lot, though. It should at least double the amount currently in the game to be worthwhile.

The Sims' expansions at least add things you'll use in the game. Spore hardly has replay value, and creature creation isn't exactly a marginal part. Unless you're someone that spends hours making creatures/vehicles/spaceships, this expansion is just worthless. Seems like Maxis just wants to blow out a million expansions just as The Sims, but have no perspective on what their game really is - Sims is a sandbox game, Spore is not.

If it was cheaper, I'd buy it.  I like the creature creator enough to warrant a purchase, but not at $20.

You beat me to this response... agreed.

But what people need to think about is that they will pay for things they like. Example: paying that monthly fee to play world of warcraft after you've already paid for the game. Paying 20 dollars for something you have until you get bored with the game is really not as bad as it seems.

Not worth it.

I'd far rather spend the money on something that made the space stage less....monotonous. I'm so pissed at myself for buying this game. I haven't even finished it..I just get bored of doing the same exact thing over and over through grox territory.

I really don't even see it as a sandbox..there's so little variation as to what you can do and what happens as a result of what you actually do. 

For more creature parts I'd be willing to spend about $0.99 max.

I share your feelings. I was sort of let down by this game.

once there's enough packs and they go in extreme discount bundle, i'll pick them all up.
Else you spend more money for less content on the creature parts then the game itself. Which is rediculous to begin with.

That is if my copy of spore still runs by then... given that the install limit won't kill my disk beforehand.
