    First of all, yes this is a Steamworks game, which also means that it requires Steam to download and play (Steam is actually where I purchased it). How Amazon can offer this new of a game at such a heavily discounted price ($7.49) boggles my mind, but hey - I won't complain.
    You buy the game here, get a key, go to Steam and add it to your collection through the option in the client. Example: launch Steam and log in, then click "Games" -> "Activate a Product on Steam...", and input your key.

    The object of Scribblenauts is simple - solve puzzles and collect stars. This in turn allows you to unlock more of the huge, scrolling map (and of course access the puzzles found within). Once you get a few of these stars, you can mostly FREELY navigate around the gigantic themed map and pick your challenges at will. There are hundreds upon hundreds of missions here, so the entertainment value is massive - and that doesn't even take into account the fact that you can create/spawn anything you want and see how things play out.

    The beautiful part of this sandbox puzzler is that you solve everything with the power of your lexicon and a keyboard (OK, the mouse is involved as well)!
    You can even use adjectives, which means that you can further customize how the game plays. Want to make a dancing vampire? A singing clown (oh the humanity!)? Well, now you can.
    While most of the puzzles are very simple, there are a few that will really make you think.

    Scribblenauts Unlimited also has a very powerful object editor, allowing you to easily create a lot of custom content. Check out the Steam Workshop page to see what other people have come up with. The variety is mind boggling. I kid you not, you can download everything from the Portal Gun, all the way to Spiderman.

    I got this game remembering how much fun and difficult the original DS Scribblenauts was, and although this game goes down a slightly different route and eases up on the difficulty, it's still a blast.

    Each level has a theme to it (for instance, you might be at a haunted mansion, or in the wild west), and your job is to help as many people as possible by spawning objects by typing words (nouns and adjectives). Some of the tasks are extremely easy to solve (someone might need something as small as a bar of soap, or you might need to make them "brave" or "courageous"), but there are always one to three full Starite "quests" per level that will take slightly longer to solve.
    All of the levels and the tasks themselves have very clever names, and often tie in different motifs into one (for instance, a mine shaft level features a hidden superhero chamber, a frozen caveman, and a woman trapped by a giant spider). It just goes to show that the developers really understand that different players will have different perceptions of what should be included in certain areas, and they did their best to accommodate those perceptions.

    I'm perhaps slightly more than halfway through my first playthrough (with five hours logged) and I have yet to repeat a single word or term. They did a really good job of adhering to a simple premise and yet allowing you to be as creative as you want to progress. As I mentioned before, though, the difficulty is a bit on the easy side. I've only had to really stop to think about a puzzle two or three times.

    The visuals are really cartoony and look great and sharp... there's not much to say about this, just that there are a ton of different character and item models, and it's extremely impressive.

    And the sound is topnotch.

    This a truly a unique game that deserves a spot in everyone's collection. The game takes places as the main character Maxwell proceeds to solve a series of missions using a magic notebook. By simply writing words in this notebook, he summons a wide array of objects to solve these quests. This results in extremely open-ended gameplay with a healthy sense of humor. This latest entry in the series adds the ability to use adjectives, which really opens up the possibilities. I've played this on a number of platforms, and I think the PC graphics outshine the other versions.

    I will also say I think any concerns about the requirement to use the Steam platform are entirely unfounded. The app that runs in the background does not degrade performance, and there is no need to have an always on internet connection to play the game. Steam has an offline mode that allows the game to be played just fine when there is no connection available. When you buy this from Amazon, you will be given a code that you enter into Steam. The game downloads and installs through Steam - a very simple process.

    This is great for anyone who is looking branch out and experience unique gameplay, and fans of the series will appreciate this newest installment.

    I noticed a lot of reviews where people are complaining about having to install something called "Steam". Let me clarify: this is a good thing. Steam is a client that allows you to manage your PC games, take and upload screenshots, talk to friends, etc. It is the biggest name in PC game management, and nearly all modern games use it. Think of it as something like Xbox Live for PC games. So yes, you want to install it. I have used it myself for a few years, and it is extremely safe and user-friendly.

    That said, the game itself is a blast. Whether you have played the previous two Scribblenauts games on the DS or not does not matter; this game starts fresh with new mechanics. Instead of going level-by-level solving puzzles like in the previous games, you go to different "hubs" like a city or a forest, and help people with their individual problems there by summoning objects with your magic notebook. You can also add adjectives to change object properties, e.g. "living stapler" will create a stapler that moves around like a living thing. The new Object Editor lets you create your own objects if the game doesn't have them by using existing parts and shapes. You can publish your custom items and download other peoples' items to your game using the Steam Workshop (another reason you want Steam).

    Overall, the game is a ton of fun.
