5.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Wild Imagination on the Loose!, 15 Oct 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Super Scribblenauts (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I've never played the first Scribblenauts, so I can't compare the two, but I can certainly give you an idea of how great this one is.

Unlike most games, Scribblenauts doesn't follow an actual storyline, well, not really, instead you are given little missions to complete, some of which can be completed in more ways then one. Put off? Don't be.
You face these mission with the most ferocious weapon of them all . . . your pencil and notepad!
You play a character called Maxwell in this game who has the power to create anything with his paper and pen. And I really mean anything. By tapping the pencil and pad icon in the corner of the screen you bring up the "writing screen". Here, you can type whatever you want, "cat", "bus", "moon", whatever you can think of.
But it's not just nouns. You can add adjectives to your words to make super imaginative things, like a speedy, large, yellow, hairy, angrey, fire-breathing tortoise.

So your aim is complete the tasks given to you by using your imaginative ideas. Or if you don't feel like helping the knight cross the shark invested waters or dress yourself up correctly for the fashion show, you can hang out in the Playground, where you can do whatever you please. An anarchy game or what?

What you make you can also interact with. For instance, giving yourself a jetpack will let you fly, or you can fire a gun you've just created, or if you're being attacked by an angrey lion, make an animal tamer to calm them down. It's quite ammusing watching your creations wander about the world.

You can get awards for doing certain things, like making the largest possible thing or using the "Super Scribblenauts Super Adjective" (still can't work out what that is). You can even make your own levels to play. Believe me, this game has no limit.

I could be here forever explaining what you can do in this game, so I'll finish off with this: Don't hestitate if you're intrested in this game, it's great fun for all ages. Do be aware, however, that of course a basic spelling ability is neccassary, so keep this in mind when buying for younger children.

So if you like games where there is no saying what you can and can't do - buy this! It's worth every penny and all the fun it gives.
