    In spite of minor grumbles, this is an expansive, varied and satisfying physics puzzler and, while it could do with a smidge more personality, it certainly benefits from a budget price.

    Create is far from a bad game, as the score I've awarded it should attest. But it consistently relies too much on sheer quantity over true freedom and intellectual quality to be a top-drawer puzzler, and doesn't live up to the implied promises of its own title enough to join the top ranks of the burgeoning build-your-own gaming revolution.

    A bunch of good ideas, yet the puzzles feels too easy and repetitive. It's got a great customization potential, allthough it will probably lack the big community to support it.
  4. A refreshing change from the norm for the Xbox 360, but it's no LittleBigPlanet. [Feb 2011, p.106]

    Contrary to its title, this disappointing puzzle game possesses little in the way of creativity.

    More than anything, Create's credo of supplying a place for imagination to flourish feels ill-conceived, like placing a toddler in a sandbox, telling her to do whatever her heart desires, then showing her the blueprints for what you're expecting.

    This game's title is a massive misnomer. You don't "create" anything – you mess around with preset environments and then slap stickers all over it. You want to get the Create experience and save a few bucks? Buy a coloring book.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is a fun game for all ages, and this can get a child thinking!

    In some challenges, they can be tricky like I was stuck on some levels in the game.

    To me, I thought "Hey, this might help with some subjects at school!"

    They are a selection of different items like props, animals and stickers.

    In my opinion, I think this will be a great game for Christmas 2010.

    Congratulations professional game reviewers - you are narrow in your scope of game genre's. This game has received undeserving scorn fromCongratulations professional game reviewers - you are narrow in your scope of game genre's. This game has received undeserving scorn from people who simply don't enjoy the puzzle genre of games. This isn't another cookie-cut shooter. This is a puzzle game. Your job is to get an object, or objects to their goal. How you do that is up to you with the tools given. Sometimes it will be with simple tools, other times with 20 objects that you can glue together or have interact with one another individually. Some parts of this game can be challenging, others surprisingly simple. The controls aren't bad, as with any game it takes patience to learn how to do anything. This is a niche game. If you are looking to solve some puzzles, this game makes it fun to do so. It fails to deliver polished graphics, and that is my only gripe. Expand

The controls were goofy and instructions were not clear. I never played a game for 30 minutes and still didn't know what was going on until Create. The graphics were nice and the effects sometimes entertaining. That's a five nothing more, maybe a 4.6 if that was available. Don't buy this Expand
