    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is still a solid puzzle game, but 5th cell smoothed out too many edges that made the other Scribblenauts so special.

    Get comfortable and grab a dictionary: word-wizard Maxwell is out on a quest to save lives. Don’t expect an innovative sequel, Scribblenauts Unlimited is the improved version of a known concept.

    Still you'd have to be pretty cold at heart to not give this charismatic funny vocabulary driven insanity at least a chance. Sure, most of what it does is only funny the first and maybe the second time around. And it is also true that many of the smaller challenges it pits against you aren't interesting (or challenging) at all. But there's also recurring moments of pure comedy gold, when your words prompt characters to do hilarious five-second skits or random items send the scene into a cartoonishly homicidal chain reaction.

    Almost a perfect tool to practice foreign language lacks the core playability – the creative solutions are not supported unfortunately. [Jan 2013]

Although Scribblenauts gets old pretty quickly (due to the repetitive nature of the game) it’s still a very refreshing experience that puts you in control to tackle situations in any way you like! It really does encourage you to be silly; the main aim is to craft items with a magic notebook that makes anything you write in it appear (within moderation… of course). You then use these items to help all the troubled souls throughout the world while collecting starites to lift a curse put on your sister to save her from completely turning to stone! It’s definitely a game worth looking at; merely for being so different and its pleasant cartoony graphics! Expand

This game was surprisingly fun from start to finish. Expand

The game starts off fantastic when your discovering all sorts of crazy ways to solve the puzzles. The first letdown is that this game is mainly comprised of puzzles that require no thought. The game becomes a slow and repetitive fairly fast because of this. For kids the game would be fantastic but anyone older this isn't great. The steam version has workshop support which is fantastic as it means copyrighted content such as characters from movies and other games can be sneaked in. The game looks great also with crisp and clear graphics, even if the animation is basic. Overall I still had fun in scribblenauts unlimited but I still feel that super scribblenauts is superior.

Really, the problem is that it is barely a game at all. It is more of a sandbox type deal, where you can write in a wide variety (though the dictionary does have very definite limits) of words and get random stuff.

    The problem is that the game never challenges you to do anything creative or clever with it at all. Almost all the puzzles are incredibly simplistic, to the point where you can solve them with a single word 90%+ of the time, and the rest are merely "Give me 3 of X", where X is some category of things. OH BOY.

    Most of the puzzles can be solved in under 30 seconds, and many can be solved in 3.

    Is it fun? No, not really. And while the ability to create anything SEEMS fun, in the end it actually gets boring pretty quickly, which sucks what is the point of being able to create everything when you don't really need to, and can solve a shocking large number of puzzles just with "fire"? That's not fun. Being creative tends to take longer and not give different results, and the whole thing just isn't that exciting.

    There are a few cute moments here and there, and a few things I thought were funny, but... mostly? It was just boring and empty as an experience.
