Scribblenauts Unmasked is the latest game in the franchise. It is an awesome game, no matter how old you are, you can have tons of fun with it. The chance of fool around with your favorite DC characters that this game provides is priceless.
If you are a fan of this saga, this game is a MUST have. But if you are not familiarized with the Scribblenauts games it is an excellent game to start becoming a fan. If you enjoy reading comics, have fun with superhero stories or simply love to set your imagination to work, to see your ideas fly away from your head, you should definitely give this game a try.
Also this game comes with multiple language support. So, you don’t have to be afraid if English isn’t your first language (like my case), cause you will play it in the most naturally way possible.

It's very entertaining, and every DC Comics' fan will love it. Think of any superhero or villain and BAM! it's right in front of you. It'll help you spend some enjoyable time, but it tends to get a bit boring – at least for me; consider I'm not a big fan of DC Comics. If you really enjoy DC Comics' content, you should give this game a try.

This game is amazing. You wanna fly you can fly, You are essentially god in this game, There are puzzles that can be challenging for everyone. For example how does one get rid of tar? You can have a superman suit and shoot lasers or you can make green lantern constructs with a green lantern costume. I had tons of fun making characters with the "Hero Creator" making characters like "Darkest Night Batman" with a mix of Batman and Green Lantern (See what I did there?). And best of all was learning about characters in just small sentences. For example I was thinking who the hell is Plastic Man and in a few seconds I knew. Buy it, it's worth it.

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.
