Ars Technica

Salsa Shark: I found the first version of Scribblenauts to be a bit disappointing. Conjuring up random things and making various beasts/humans fight one another was entertaining enough, but the control system when actually trying to complete tasks was so frustrating that I didn’t get very far before shelving the game. Super Scribblenauts was a huge improvement; something as simple as moving Maxwell with the D-pad instead of the stylus actually turned the entire game around. Oh, and the addition of adjectives is pretty fun, too. When your lexicon is exhausted of adjectives and obscure nouns, you can always resort to good ol’ random fights to the death between depressed ninja velociraptors and posh metal Cthulhus or other descriptive monsters of your choice. Super wicked.

forksclovetofu: I honestly wish I wasn’t once bitten, twice shy about this game but I still feel a bit wary of trying what sounds like the game the first one should’ve been after struggling with the janky controls and ???? puzzles in 2009, especially given the mixed reviews. Plus at this point it just feels like 5th Cell should join forces with Media Molecule and make a Little Big Scribblenauts and get the job done right.
