Scribblenauts Unmasked is the latest in the "Create Anything" series where you solve puzzles or problems with your magical notebook, only this time with the spin that you can tap into the DC universes wide array of superheroes and villains. Thanks to the adjectives you can apply, the game is a great way of setting up "What if?" super hero fights. Giant Superman versus an evil crazed miniature Green Lantern. Sure! A good Darkseid up against Brainiac? Completely possible.
The plays out like it's immediate predecessor Scribblenauts Unlimited where you have several levels based on iconic DC universe locations where you have several problems presented to you upon entering. This time however, Starites (needed to complete each world) are only handed out for story missions while helping out people or solving puzzles awards you with reputation points. These are pretty handy since you need them to unlock new stages as well as buy costumes for Maxwell to give you natural powers (handy when you some quick power without having to type it in first).
That said, I have some issues with this game. Compared to Unlimited, Unmasked is a bit shorter, offering only a dozen locations while Unlimited had several other stages to play around in after the main game was over. While the randomly re-spawning puzzles is a nice touch when you re-enter a stage, it does leave me yearning for a few more locations to play around in. Perhaps a Mars stage for the Martian Manhunter or Titans Tower for the Teen Titans, or some more of the villains worlds for Darkseid or Sinestro. Considering how much it feels like Unlimited, I would call Unmasked almost like a quick DC expansion to that game.
Overall, would I recommend it? Yes, but perhaps when it's a bit cheaper. I feel while this game is nice and would be great for a fan of the DC Universe, or is a big fan of Scribblenauts in general, I honestly think Unlimited is the better game, and is much better at showing off what was great about the old Scribblenauts games on the Nintendo DS. That said, if you've never tried the series before and you want to use your imagination with some super heroes running around, Unmasked is a good choice.

Scribblenauts unmasked is a great game with tons of fun, I enjoyed this game a lot, you can spawn your favorites heroes and villains, also you're able to spawn anything and put adjectives to it (you can make the object/npc stronger, bigger, taller, change his color, etc, the possibilities are unlimited). Create whatever you want, it's your world. The combat is basic but good, you can customize Maxwell to get any power that you want, want to fly? be stronger? green lantern's powers? you can get them.
The graphics were improved and now looks more colorful and makes every scenery interesting
The duration of the game is short, it took me 10h to complete the game and get every achievement, but there will be always side missions and you can always mess around creating epic battles or just creating awesome things
If you enjoyed scribblenauts unlimited you’ll enjoy this one too
An interesting combotommy255 | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all tommy255's reviews »
It's not much different from scribblenauts unlimited, but with DC Comic characters now added. And I ain't complaining. Personally I couldn't really get into it because I played SOOO much of its predecessor that this game is boring for me. But I also like DC Comics so that bumps the score up.
You control everythingFreako | Jan. 4, 2014 | See all Freako's reviews »
ScribbleNauts is an crazy game where you literally control everything.
Have you had enough of those games which are too serious and have such a strict objective? This game is great for you, all you need is your brain and some vocabulary. ScribbleNauts is seriously out of the world literally. You can do whatever you want to do. If they need to fix a car, normal people get a wrench. But in scribblenauts you can get things like a robotic repairman and give him a costume maybe a clown costume.
ScribbeNauts unmasked just makes everything so much more interesting. Your dead serious super heroes are gonna be so cute and fierce it mixes so well it's funny. You can play around with your super heroes and fool around with them all you want.
Batman wants to fly. Makes him jetpacks.
Scribblenauts + DC comics - Match made in heaven!Shanti | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all Shanti's reviews »
Not quite, there is no evolution in terms of gameplay for PC gamers. While the inclusion of super heroes/villains makes it seem very interesting their is a lot missing from the full DC universe. I would not go so far as to say this is a cash-in, it is still quite an enjoyable game but I expected more from this. One great thing is the biographies you can read on all the DC characters and of course steam workshop. For a Scribblenauts fan this is surely a must-buy.
