Game is fun, but gets boring fast. There's no real sandbox mode so you're restricted to the areas of the game, and while i've barely played, I dont recccomend unless if it's on sale

At first hour It's a amazing game. Before 5 hour It's boring game. Because it's the same puzzle too many maps. Some word is impossible but why it can. I can't understand. If not sale , do not buy it . :)

What I love about scribblenauts is its creative problem solving and peaceful attitude.
Problem: Did the children of the neighborhood land their ball on the old geezer's lawn that won't give it back?
Solution: Spawn a gun and kill him! It works!
Problem: Nurse being chased by an angry heart?
Solution: Spawn a gun and kill it!
Problem: Want to contact a manager at the other side of a wall?
Solution: Spawn a grenade launcher!
Problem: Frozen people encased in ice?
Solution: Spawn a flamethrower! Bonus: Watch their life points diminish as you melt/burn away!
The thing that bugged me the most and made me sad is the cruelty towards animals. For example, as I visited a restaurant I made friends with a brown recluse spider and a cockroach, petting them and watching their happy little faces light up. Then some evil quest-giving person wanted me to kill them for a pest-control inspection, the nerve! And for a starlite fragment I had to kill my newly made bug friends?! What cruel madness is this!
Also while going through the object shards achievements I had to prod a cow?! Shame on you scribblenauts. I hope they will fix those issues in future installments. In the meanwhile I will continue riding my black&red huge supersonic fire-breathing dragon that is immune to damage, while going around helping people and making their lives better (sometimes with the use of supreme firepower).

It may look like a childish game at first glance, and it indeed may be considered as such. However, I'm 23 years old and I found it quite entertaining. Between two violent games, I just wanted to use my imagination and create my own universe and items; which the game does very well!

All in all, the game is repetitive if you don't use your imagination. I'd give it a 8 out of 10.

A must-try !

A charming game that expresses the innocent sense of curiosity and imagination of a young child in a way I have rarely seen.

If you're not familiar with the Scribblenauts series, they are platformer sandbox puzzle games where you can summon just about any object from the dictionary (with some reasonable exceptions such as copyrighted things, alcohol, and proper nouns) and expect them to interact in a believable way. If you can think of any food, animal, household item, weapon, mythological creature, or vehicle, chances are you can make it appear. We're talking tens of thousands of possibilities. A few surprises can also be summoned, such as a variety of internet memes and special objects, if you can think of them.

You can summon objects, or add adjectives to existing objects, to solve puzzles and make all the townspeople happy. Or, you could just screw around for hours summoning gods and beasts and riding them across the world as your epic mounts, or watching them run loose and terrorize the villagers.

The puzzles are all ridiculously easy, but difficulty is obviously not the point. Personally, my favorite way to play this game is to think of the most obnoxiously ridiculous solutions to every puzzle. Most puzzles will have a bluntly obvious solution, but you can make hilarity ensue if you can think of something creative. For instance, a guy wanted something to help carve his ice sculpture. I gave him a toenail clipper. Hansel and Gretel needed something to make a trail with through the forest. I gave them thumbtacks. A buzzard wanted something to eat. I gave it a dead baby. A tracking dog needed something that smelled like Santa so he could search for Santa. I summoned Santa.

It's an excellent game packed with great humor and content, and it's miles ahead of the Nintendo DS games it was based on. My only complaint is that it got a bit boring after the first few hours, but I fixed that just by taking some breaks and not playing it all on one sitting. But I never once stopped appreciating how wonderful the game is. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to rediscover their inner child, complete with borderline politically incorrect humor, in a way that very few games can provide.

(Achievement hunters: getting 100% is very tedious, as you will need to solve over a hundred riddles to acquire the remaining bonus pieces. Usually you will solve some of them on accident throughout normal gameplay if you try to use creative solutions. However, if you ever get bored, you can just look at a FAQ to fully complete the game effortlessly.)

Childish fun, but there is an end to how much fun you can have. There are no real mods, which means any extra content is heavily restricted by the creation system.

This game has unlimited possibilities!

I read a review about this game on newspaper and decided to buy it immediately.

The way the game allows you to solves problem with anything you can think of is just satisfying (and hilarious sometimes too).

I played this game with a group of friends at a party once, and everyone was having so much fun trying to come up with creative solutions, sometimes it works, sometimes we just laughed at the outcome.

Good game for kids to learn, but also amazingly enjoyable for adults.

10/10 best party game.

Disappointing. I'd heard so much about it. Within an hour of playing I'd found that it understood or allowed hardly any of the words and solutions I tried. Even my nephew got bored with it. Maybe you will just type in the things it expects you to and not run into this problem, but I thought it was pretty poor.

It was fun at the beginning, creating crazy stuffs just by scribbling, but it gets boring after several stages, I prefer games that are replay-able.
