I came into this game with the impression that it took away ALL of the good things from the previous Scribblenauts game. I am happy to say that I was wrong and while it does have its shortcomings, it's still a good game at its core.

The best way to look at this game is to view it as half Scribblenauts and half another medium to experience the DC universe. It takes a small bit of the creativity that was required in the previous game and fills the vacuum with all the DC heroes and villains we've come to love.

Here are some slight observations after 2 days of playing and completing the game:

The Good:
- Adds a plethora of new characters
- Interesting origin stories!
- Cool costumes. It was fun to test them all out. Keep in mind some of them overlap due to having similar strengths.

The Bad:
- The game can limit your line of thinking by having you rely on the same nouns and adjectives over and over again. There's more combat so this is normal. Consider it a challenge to find more creative ways to deal with these combat scenarios.
- Content = less meaty overall. The previous game had way more things to do so therefore I can't really agree with the current price.
- If you're not a DC enthusiast, you may not know how to do some of the repeatable objectives (such as the number guessing game).

It's a good game. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Make sure to watch the cutscenes! 4/5

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.

Spawned in a giant radioactive Cthulhu that has super speed in order to defeat Reverse Flash.

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

It's a really short game, with more emphasis on the story and DC heroes rather than the puzzles. It's still pretty interesting, even with the simplistic puzzles.

Loved it, it's a tad less good than the original but it's still an awesome game.

The positive

Scribblenauts Unmasked lets you unleash the power of your imagination. The number of items you can create is astonishing and now you can create DC comics characters (as well as a lot of alternative versions of them). You can have a lot of fun trying to make them interact with each other. I don't know much about comics characters and the game teaches you quite a bit about their origin (there are dedicated quests about the origins of a few characters), their powers and how they're all linked to each other. The number of side quests is huge and can sometimes be tricky to solve. It's also interesting to find some unusual combinations to solve them. Scribblenauts might look like it aims at a younger audience but even when you're not a kid anymore, it's still a hella lot of fun. I love the very cute graphic style and the soundtrack is pretty awesome. Imagination is a powerful tool. Finally, for achievement hunters, most of the achievements are easy to get.

The negative

It's not very long (just a few hours) and unlocking costumes is just grinding, you have to solve a lot of quests to get them all. The story isn't very compelling to be honest and is mostly carried by the DC universe. The number of different environment isn't very high as well and it's a bit disappointing.

Conclusion

Great game, for both kids and adults. The cuteness of the graphics and the soundtrack, as well as the (probably not always obvious) depth of the gameplay makes it really enjoyable. I'm just disappointed that they basically took Scribblenauts Unlimited, added the DC universe and didn't add very much new gameplay mechanics. Get the first one if you haven't played it since it's better in my opinion, unless you're a huge fan of the DC universe.

[Warning: There will be spoilers, continue at your own risk!]







It was a really fun game and sets itself apart from all the other Scribblenaut games. It had a very interesting story that I found cute and funny at the same time. The ending however really pulls your feels. Especially if you played Super Scribblenauts since in the last level you go up against Doppelganger. This game continued on Doppelganger's story, showing that he was not really an evil version of Maxwell, but just a lost and lonely person who only need a friend...which is how Doppelily (Doppelganger's new sister, the doppelganger version of Lily) was created. The Doppelgangers remained in the DC universe to fix all the damage caused. That really pulled my feels, man!

I rate this game 9.7/10 and I would (and will) play it over.
