Conclusion: Overall, Scribblenauts Unlimited improves upon its predecessors in many ways, yet it still lacks what it takes to make a truly great game out of its awesome idea. Writing whatever you want and seeing it come to life, without offering a creative challenge, eventually becomes, believe it or not, repetitive.
Excerpt: Scribblenauts Unlimited looks fantastic in 3D in story mode. I am shocked at how many different levels there are on the top screen. The main portion of the game does not include 3D so it is a non-issue. It would have been too much and not needed during normal game play.
Excerpt: The creative hilarity of typing in words and watching them burst to life in crazy, often unpredictable ways delivers potent fun in the Scribblenauts series, making its console debut as part of the Wii U launch line-up. The charming, kid-friendly world of Maxwell and his magic notebook come to life once more in the pintsize wordsmith's most expansive outing yet.
Excerpt: Since 2009, 5th Cell's been tinkering with its Scribblenauts franchise, expanding the game's already-massive lexicon and introducing new ways to use that lexicon to solve puzzles. Now, Scribblenauts Unlimited has risen as the third attempt at expertly orchestrating an adventure that allows players' attempts at out-of-the-box puzzle-solving, but it simply isn't able to suitably expand on the content the previous two games delivered.
Pros: Draw what's on your mind, see it come alive, Playing in character editor and sandbox mode, Charming, silly characters
Cons: Simple puzzles that are easily resolved, Being encouraged to think inside the box, A woefully short story mode
Excerpt: After playing the first Scribblenauts way back in ’09, I could tell instantly how far the franchise has come when starting Scribblenauts Unlimited . The first thing I noticed was just how great the game looked. It’s sharp, colourful and has a wonderful personality that defines the franchise’s goofy style. It also has a charming story that is, although fairly senseless, beautifully told through some nice animation and a great voiceover.
