Scribblenauts Unlimited is a side-scrolling Puzzle game with a substantial Action component, in which players use a magical in-game notepad to create objects that are used to complete tasks and challenges that are placed before them. Once created, objects are stored in the game's object library, and can be resummoned using their given name, and even altered for use later. Additional features include: the return of the series hero, Maxwell, now with a deeper storyline; an open world game design featuring themed play areas; hint functionality; and 3DS StreetPass functionality that allows created objects to be shared wirelessly with other nearby players.

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).
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.
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!
-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.Read more ›
