    It's fun, it's a Scribblenauts game after all, but they put a few tweeks in that just suck the life out of it. The screen is usually too zoomed out, there's far too much reliance on the "punch" action, and it is very difficult to figure out what exactly you need to do for each mission or even where to find them.

    It's cool to be able to call out so many DC characters, but ultimately they

    It's cool to be able to call out so many DC characters, but ultimately they all do the same thing: run at each other punching until one is dead, then the other just stands there angry. The origin quests were the most fun, but they were very limited and very short. I'd highly recommend trying Super Scribblenauts or Scribblenauts Unlimited over this.

    I seriously agree with everyone else, the part with the DC license was sweet. But the gameplay was kind of...it's hard to describe...poor. It felt like you had no freedom of creation, and it just did not feel like a normal scribblenauts game to me. It still is fun, don't get me wrong, but if you were to buy this, I reccomend this game to people who don't mind a few shorthands there and there.

    Scribblenauts Unmasked is a fun title. It takes the best elements of the series and combines them with the DC Universe in a way that feels natural and fun. Developer 5th Cell has painstakingly mined the DC Universe and delivered a game that really takes advantage of the license.

    Awesome use of DC license, poor use of Scribblenauts gameplay.

    Fans of the DC universe will have fun with all of the possibilities, and anyone else willing to overlook some game play snags can have fun here. Ultimately though, the mechanical and presentation issues keep the game from shining as brightly as it could.
