Creative Entertainment

Scribblenauts overall is a fun and enjoyable game. The level of items and things that you can generate is very impressive. You can create a sort of sandbox mode and just start spawning things to see what'll happen - like who will fight who, or to find the temperament of a rhino - but there are also a lot of different missions that need to be completed in order to help your sister turn back from stone. During the missions, it's essentially the same thing of helping a person by giving them something or creating them something. Sometimes the things that you think up, and that the game accepts, can cause for some funny moments. But this can also be a small point of frustration or disappointment as creating something that seems like it should work, but doesn't, and then having to create something nearly identical or extremely similar that does work, sort of breaks the immersion of a "do whatever you want game". It ends up feeling a little bit repetitive, as well, as this is literally all that you're doing. Crafting something, giving it someone, and then fighting a beast or monster in the area. It's a fun little game that's good for a short play session, or would be much more enjoyable if you have small kids to play with.

Hours of Fun

SparkWave | Aug. 3, 2015 | See all SparkWave's reviews »

Scribblenauts is the type of platformer game that is played when one can call themself "bored". Its unique style of game which allows the player to summon any object he/she can think of is truly one of a kind. The more creative the mind of a player is, the more the game begins to unravel itself upon the player. By this, I mean the sky is the limit! There is an unlimited amount of things you can do, hence the name Scribblenauts Unlimited. Ultimately, hundreds of hours can be spent playing this game while doing absolutely nothing but summoning random objects. Try it for yourself!

Creativity to the max

At first it looks like a kids game but oh boy it is so much more than that. You can solve the missions in pretty much any way you can think off. Pretty much anything in your imagination can be projected to the game and the sandbox aspect is amazing. Anything you can think of is can be spawned with the typing of your keyboard. There is good mod support on steam so the range of possibilities is even greater. Even better if you want to have trademarked DC super heroes in your game there is scribblenauts unmasked that lets you recreate the battle of infinite crisis in under 10 seconds.

Initially fun, but ultimately more of a chore

NucularS | Jan. 11, 2015 | See all NucularS's reviews »

Initially, Scribblenauts Unlimited leaves a favorable impression and gives the player a cool ability to generate almost anything out of thin air and augment existing objects by adding adjectives. Furthermore, generated objects believably interact with each other and the rest of world, which allows for some creative problem solving. However, an initially cool concept soon turns into a tedious grind fest involving giving hundreds of NPCs ordinary commonplace items level after level, and many of the references required to generate the right item would likely stump children young enough to enjoy what is essentially a word game. While the game offers quirky graphics and cool mechanics, I think reading a dictionary would be more fun and useful in the end, and Scribblenauts Unlimited is best suited to punishing misbehaving children by grounding them until they get all of the achievements in the game.

Scribblenauts Unlimited marks the PC debut of a great series.

Scribblenauts is a strange set of games. You get out of them what you put in, and they're always more fun with an active participating audience such as younger siblings or other loved ones. The gameplay loop is simple: You're presented with a problem, and must solve it using whatever you can think of. The game has a built-in dictionary and you can summon everything from an angry toilet to a purple screaming afro bowl of soup. Sound bizarre? It is. But there's a logic to it! And understanding that logic and taking advantage of it is what makes the game fun. The game's dictionary is extensive, with plenty of hidden secrets and Easter Eggs, but of course there are limits, no trademarked stuff or anything offensive. You can totally "cheat" the system by just giving yourself wings or a jetpack or making yourself invisible/invincible, but being more creative with your answers is where the fun is at! The controls are a little wonky, but far superior to the game's DS upbringing, and a keyboard makes this game a JOY to play on PC, where you can pound away ideas in a split second. The music is super pleasant and the world is colorful, fun for pretty much anyone. There's a ton of content, and the item editor allows you to add more and upload it to the Steam workshop, adding an unlimited (Ha!) amount of replayability and content. I very much recommend this game.
