    This game has the "buy me now" label printed all over it

    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

    Scribblenauts shows the real potential of the DS!

    When I first played scribblenauts, I spent a while at the "Playbox", or start menu where you can write whatever and it would appear. IT BLEW ME AWAY!!! I easily spent a half hour finding vehicles, shooting zombies and fi... Read Full Review

    You can chloroform a butterfly!

    This game really does let you do just about anything and everything your mind can dream of! The graphics are childish but endearing, and they do not distract from the true focus of the game, your imagination. I hav... Read Full Review

    Ambition Over Gameplay

    I greatly anticipate the majority of readers to look at that score, completely ignore my review and give it a thumbs down. That's a shame, too, since many folks will miss out on what I feel are valid issues that probably... Read Full Review
