    Fans of adventure and puzzle games seeking a gameplay experience that's both addictive and unique will find plenty to enjoy in Scribblenauts Unlimited. Those gamers looking for more of a challenge will find the game's difficulty to be disappointing.

    Scribblenauts Unlimited is a bigger game than the previous. It offers more chances to put your creativity to the test and its replay value is through the roof. Granted, it doesn't offer the same type of challenge as previous version, but that also decreases the frustration that might come with said challenge. If you're looking for a game that is fun for the kids, and the adults, in the house then look no further than this.

    Despite some dips in overall puzzle difficulty this time around, the game has a massive amount of content to both discover and create from scratch.

Everything you see in the WiiU version is here on the PC (exluding the mario and zelda characters, and local multi). With the new antialiasing option, images tend to be much much clearer, and play out buttery smooth. This version also introduces Steam Workshop compatibility, allowing you to download other creations online, which the WiiU is not capable of doing. I highly suggest you get the PC version over the WiiU, unless you really really want to spend $30 more on some local multiplayer (which will most likely be modded into PC) and some exclusive characters (custom mario and luigi characters are already in the steam workshop) Full Review »

    A fun game for child and adult both.
    The art style is very cartoony and lighthearted. The biggest thing in this game is the fact you can

    The art style is very cartoony and lighthearted. The biggest thing in this game is the fact you can create almost anything - really, you can!
    The amount of fun you can have in this game just by spawning random stuff is over the top.
    However, this game has two negative attributes - the puzzle difficulty. I had some puzzles where I couldn't understand anything.
    Second problem is CPU usage for this game - my quad core 3.1 GHz CPU is used completely. For such a game I would say there are optimization problems. Anyway, a really fun and great game for people who want something that is lighthearted, sandboxy and fun.

    “Type the word sword. Now type the word crow. Now type the word dog.”

    I preferred the original DS version, its puzzles weren’t so leading.
    “Type the word sword. Now type the word crow. Now type the word dog.”

    I preferred the original DS version, its puzzles weren’t so leading. This game is literally just screens full of people who want you to give them fairly specific items. You can try to spice it up by making a ‘cutlass’ or a ‘gargantuan crow’, but when the fun is derived from not playing the game to win, there’s a problem.

    But it’s still fun to be able to spawn a starving hobo next to an edible cthulu.
