Thoughts on Super Scribblenauts

The cool game with bad controls - Scribblenauts has finally released their sequel, guaranteeing that the controls are fixed up! Well I'll tell you right now that the controls are a lot better! While saying that, I didn't find myself moving that often. If you've read any review for this game you've probably heard them complain about this game contains mostly puzzle levels. While this is true, it doesn't go under my list of complaints.

First, lets go over my list of positives. I love the dictionary, but who doesn't? I also like the introduction of adjectives. What I like the most is that it's the perfect game on-the-go. Got 45 seconds while your microwavable taco is heating up? Take out the DS and get a level done. Got an hour before the new episode of Frisky Dingo comes on? Well then, that's where the complaining comes in. Playing this game longer than 30 minutes can get boring. You should think about that if you're planning on buying this game because you have a 6 hour flight to Delaware.

That right there is my biggest complaint. They have a level creator which is cool, but like most level creators it just takes time to make anything good. There isn't too much different from the first Scribblenauts. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, they just need to add more, but what can they really add that's not word search puzzles, and crossword puzzles? Possibly the ability to make a Rube Goldberg Machine in the level editor?

Final Say: Super Scribblenauts is not something you want to play for hours and hours. If you're waiting 10 minutes for the doctor to come get you, then yes, Super Scribblenauts is perfect. You should give it a rent if you've never played the first one, because to newcomers it's pretty awesome. Once you get used to the idea of the game then that's when boredom kicks in.
