3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, but still fun November 30, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
After watching a few different reviews including a Giant Bombcast quick look on it I bought it instantly. I regret this instant purchase, however, and wish I did a little more homework on the 3DS version.

First, it really bugs me how there's no object editor at all on the 3DS version. I could understand the complexities of not being able to have multiplayer as a feature, but two of the biggest selling points of the game were just stripped from the 3DS version for who knows why!
Second, this might as well have just been a regular old DS game since the 3D has no utilization so far (aside from the story, which in and of itself isn't worth mentioning). I'm about 3/4 through the game and I haven't seen any 3D at all aside from the intro. The game looks a bit better on the 3DS though, which is a plus.

The only redeeming factor this game has for me to actually justify me finishing this game is the new open world environment instead of just picking each puzzle separately. It's pretty fun to explore and the environments are pretty varied. Even though each of these levels can be used as a sandbox I think I would have preferred a blank slate at the menu just like before instead of having to play around in a place already filled with stuff.

In short: If you liked Scribblenauts/Super Scribblenauts and want more, look no further: This is exactly that with minor additions. If you're expecting a whole different play experience though this game might not be for you. Maybe you should buy the Wii-U or PC version instead (since they include the object editor and the Wii-U version includes multiplayer).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great graphics June 21, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
I'm writing this review based on the comments my 9 year old and 12 year old sons shared with me. They think this game is a lot of fun, based on: the great quality of the graphics, the fact that the game really makes you think, and the game is longer. On the downside, this Scribblenauts version doesn't really have a story to it, so it takes awhile to know what it going on within the game. (It gives an overview at the beginning, but then it is hard to remember all the details as you work your way through.) Overall, both boys really recommend this new game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really fun, but... July 3, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
My son played with this for quite a while after he got it. Sometimes he'd ask for help and it was fun to try to figure out what he needed in a specific situation.
He is a little disappointed because he was under the impression that he would be able to create his own objects for use in the game. This feature is available in the WiiU version, but not in the 3DS version. You can use adjectives to modify objects in the game, though.
This game is entertaining, challenging, and provides opportunities for learning and creativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars For a First Time User I had a Blast! December 4, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a fun game! I had not tried this before so I did not know what to expect, but I have to say that I was impressed with a number of things. First, I enjoyed the story sequence and the overall concept of the game itself. Second, The overall HD quality of the game was amazing and as a player you get some great add-ons that the designers threw in to enhance the overall game play. Third, the overall game play itself was a lot of fun, and there were a ton of areas within the game, where I felt that I was not going to be getting board anytime soon (that's for sure).

Seeing that I had not tried this game in the past, as I mentioned, I had no basis to criticize from the past. That being said I was very impressed overall with the game itself and I, along with my eldest daughter had a lot of fun with the game and the characters within it!

I know some others here stated that they were disappointed becuase they had been playing this for some time, but as a first time player, I was very impressed and satisfied with the experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It May 3, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
This is great for kids and adults. Much better than any of its previous versions. Keep in mind, cutscenes are 3D, gameplay is not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still fun, but a step down from Super Scribblenauts June 28, 2013
By Josh
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Having sunk hours and hours into Scribblenauts and Super Scribblenauts on the DS (and still revisiting Super Scribblenauts occasionally for sandbox play), Scribblenauts Unlimited was, of course, one of the first games I grabbed when I got my new 3DS XL. Unfortunately, while I enjoyed the game, its blend of new features and frustrations left me with mixed feelings.

Pros:

-The new layout takes some getting used to but is cool, allowing you to select individual levels or explore the world in sort of a direct, adventure game-esque overworld fashion. It also adds a more polished feel to the game, although I found myself missing the simplicity of the earlier games' layouts.

-More story elements (although it's still light on story)

-The addition of mini-quests in the overworld for starite shards is pretty cool, even if they're mostly one-step solutions and overly simple (in some cases, it's harder to find the person you need to do the quest for than it is to actually create what they want).

-The huge list of additional sandbox objectives to earn the remaining starites is clever and fun, even requiring some trivia knowledge (even if it does, on one hand, just seem like the developers saying "Hey, look at the clever easter eggs we put in the game!").

And now the negatives:

-My biggest problem is that the game is so easy, and all of the puzzles seem to hold your hand and squash the creativity that the past games required. It seems almost every puzzle is broken into tiny steps with a character telling you, specifically, to "create this". Then you create that and move on. There's very little trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B. Even the answers don't allow for much creativity or humor.
