    While it stumbles here and there, simply the idea of it wins it enough awards to warrant a purchase.

    While it stumbles here and there, simply the idea of it wins it enough awards to warrant a purchase.

    Story: You're a Scribblenaut! It's never quite explained where you come from or what your goal is, and I personally think a story, even if it's as wacky and unreal as say Elite Beat Agents or LittleBigPlanet, would have... Read Full Review

    There are games a reviewer will dread playing, but has to because it's not professional to stop before the game is over.

    Story is cut because it has no story. It probably would have indirectly helped the game a little to have had a story though. Right now, every enemy is an indistinguishable shape with no real design to it, and every level... Read Full Review
