I love this game *^*
The imagination and creativity Scribblenauts has, combined with the DC comics world is extremely fun and entertaining. In this you will meet ALL your favourite heroes from the DC universe, sorry Marvel... ;x
You can create almost anything you want, but now with Super-heroes :D
Let your inner-child run free with this great game c;

The downside is that it's not the longest game a there is virutally no exploration. Ultimately very linear yet still fun :33

As a DC Comics fan I enjoyed Scribblenauts Unmasked immensely.

Trying to create various semi-obscure characters just to see if they’re in the game by itself can be a fun experience, and the same could be said for trying to use the various characters’ powers and abilities in a creative way to react to the various challenges.

The Mxyzptlk challenges (having to play a stage with some restrictions such as only using animals, superheroes, words starting with a certain letter, etc.) can also help spice up things, should you choose to accept them, when you are not utterly ridiculous.

While it’s obvious not all characters and items are present the number and variety of the ones that are is incredible. I was personally kind of bummed I couldn’t summon, say, Lou Martin just to be pleasantly surprised later when I saw Vext or Shade the Changing Man pop out.

The story is really cute and permeated from start to finish with irony and a childlike sense of adventure. There’s a whole lot of little in-jokes from Batman refusing to use guns, to little hearts appearing over the heads of characters who are romantically involved with each other, to Maxwell time traveling to the past and asking Batgirl how her spine feels as a thank you after she saves him.

The problem with the game is that it might not be as appealing for a fan of Scribblenauts who is not into DC. When you strip it of the fanservice the game feels inferior to Unlimited. The random tasks add a lot of variety but they feel tacked-on and sometimes even break for no reason. It may happen that you enter a stage just to see a character with a task icon die miserably or conversely see a task complete without any input from the player. The game is also far more combat oriented than its predecessors and a lot of challenges can be completed simply by creating a lot of powerful superheroes. Last but not least, Unmasked is painfully short. There is only 12 main missions divided between 3 categories (Gotham, Metropolis and Justice League, which involves Oa, Atlantis, Themyscira and Central City), which are only a few minutes long, and 6 mini missions in which you help the main DC heroes (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Flash) through their origin story, which are even shorter.

In the end Scribblenauts Unmasked is a good game if you are a DC Comics fan and an ok game if you are a Scribblenauts fan, but if you are just interested in the series and trying to pick your first title, go with Unlimited instead.

...I would play this game some more to test it better. For now... is it a bad game? No it's not, nor it is the little masterpiece it could have been.

The "create what you want writing it" thing is cool to some extent; it could easily become boring and, when rapid action is needed, you would probably create something basic just to solve the problem quickly. Otherwise, you would smile two or three times creating absurd things, then the action will become very repetitive. In the end, also language understanding problems by the AI will prevent some of your fantasies to be created in the game.

What about the DC Universe? On the one hand, the game has an enormous library containing almost all of the DC characters, the most strange and forgotten ones too. That's cool, but... on the other hand, the narrative is very basic and not only made for chidren, but actually childish and sometimes annoying. So, if the game is made for (quite stupid) children who probably haven't a deep knowldege of the DC comics, why is this enormous fan-service library provided?

...who is this game for, exactly? I can't say, but probably not for me.

Try it at the lowest price, just to satisfy your curiosity: 6-/10

This game is heaps of fun!
I love how you can play with all the DC Superheroes!
I don't like how it sometimes it doesn't understand what you wrote, even though it was correct.
And it doesn't let you write the same thing down in one level :/
But mostly it's still heaps of fun and quite easy to use so I still recommend this, especially if you love DC Superheroes.

This game is awesome, with the new feature of creating your own hero and making new skins was awesome. Plus there are males and females for every humanoid which is awesome. Also the new items make it more fun. At first i thought the wouldnt include the other heroes and villains from the other universes but they did!

All of my favorite heroes in one game, and not just the characters in their primary state, but every version of that hero that has ever existed in the comics since 1938. for instance, 4 pages of Batman 3 pages of Superman etc... Aside from this it also has all of the fan favorite venues of the DC universe, add to that the limitless possibilities that the Scribblenauts series already offers and you have a really addicting game on your hands.

There isn't much to say about this game. It is very much more of the same from the previous Scribblenauts game. The only thing different this time is story line now includes super-heroes.

You can "draw" your favorite heroes and have them join in on the action whenever you want. Each hero has multiple different costumes from their own comics which adds to the variety in the gameplay.

I couldn't quite get into this game very easily however, the story seemed very bland and not interesting. The side quests which were available were also all very samey. I suppose I am probably in the wrong age bracket for this sort of game, the younger audience may appreciate this more.

The graphics keep to the same colorful playful style as with the other games in the series. Plenty of customization is available through creating your own heroes and sharing them through Steam Works.

If you are a fan of the series or want to try something a little bit quirky and different, definitely check this out. However at full price, I wouldn't purchase this title, Scribblenauts Unlimited is for sure the better of the two on Steam.

Quite possibly the largest collection of DC-related stuff in a videogame ever.

What I liked:
  • Large amount of DC characters (even the oscure ones) you can create complete with information about them
  • You can heavily customize your avatar by changing the head, limbs, etc. and putting on various costumes you unlock
What I didn't like:
  • It's really really short (even shorter than Scribblenauts Unlimited) and some of the solutions are really odd
  • Despite the changes that the developers made, most of the areas can still be cheesed with certain adjectives on Maxwell
