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).

"Write anything, solve everything." This has been the mantra for Scribblenauts since its creation in 2009, and each new installment comes closer and closer to realising this goal. Scribblenauts Unlimited on Steam has taken the "write anything" part to heart, but falters a bit of the "solve everything" side of the equation.

The Steam Workshop support for this game is quite huge. If you can think of an object that the game doesn't recognise (mostly copyrighted content), then it's possible that someone has either created it for you, or some toying around with the game's impressive object editor will make your dreams a reality. Even better, you can upload your creations for all Steam users to enjoy.

As awesome as this is, the gameplay is a tad disappointing. At least, we finally have an explanation for Maxwell's endless search for Starites (the game's MacGuffin). The story acts as a prequel to the series, as Maxwell struggles to retrieve the errant Starites to rescue his sister, Lilly (one of literally dozens of his relatives, all of whom are playable characters), from being turned into stone. This story is quickly forgotten once you start summoning vuvuzuela-playing pink jaguars to fight a winged preposterous black knight riding atop a cowardly telekinetic cybernetic T-rex, with only the occasional interlude reminding you of your main objective.

To retrieve the Starites, Maxwell must help people around the game's expansive world with various problems, from helping an up-and-coming rock band gain a fanbase, to helping patients in a hospital with their various ailments. While its nice to have a large amount of different areas to explore, many of which feel alive with various characters mulling about, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was just playing nicer-looking versions of the DS games' title screens. Worse yet, many of the main challenges don't encourage your imagination as often as you think they would.

Despite these problems, I would still highly recommend this game to anyone who hasn't played the series before. The visuals are crisp, the sheer amount of objects that can be generated is mind boggling (not counting the extensive Workshop creations), and it's still fun to see how each object and adjective interacts with each object in the world.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pros:

+ Graphics look amazing, even on low-powered laptops
+ Amazing object editor
+ "Write anything": only limited to your imagination
+ Always fun to see object/adjective interactions
+ Nice origin story for Maxwell...

Cons:

- ...but is quickly forgotten while goofing off
- Worlds feel like glorified title screens from the DS games
- Many challenges limit/stifle creativity

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 Magical Book that allows you to spawn anything you want! i guess this is a no brainer to get
each puzzle in this game has a lot of different ways to solve , you help them in a lot of ways and have fun at the same time!
the game really is so entertaining in the story telling and the levels creation i love the artwork its perfect for this game
the amount of creativity you can make to finish a certain level is unlimited you can pretty much do anything you want and create dragons and dinosaurs and make them fight lol thats fun ^^
this game is based on your imaginary if you think you can unleash it to its maximum try it in this game : )
The ( Unlimited ) part in this game is true : ) there is no limit to what this game can do
