i can barely tolerate ds games in general and feel games in general have a long way to go, so i'm an idiosyncratic guide for you, but i do like the hope of magic in games (the magic of them, not necessarily in them, though that too!) and certainly super scribblenauts plays with that hope. i did not like the 1st scribblenauts with its fussy weird physics platforming that mostly seemed to waste its super clever create anything keyboard. but this one, this one is actually fun, much more of the wide open puzzle game the first one should have been, and the adjectives are kind of freeing. sure, sometimes you come up with a solution that should've worked and sometimes the rules seem a little particular, but sometimes you can draw way outside the lines and solve a puzzle anyway. that in itself is a small revolution in the history of adventure gaming. if it makes things occasionally insanely easy, well, good! challenge is the single most obsessed over and slavishly obeyed element in gaming and i am bored of it. i like some structure that i can tool around in and super scribblenauts is happily all over the place while maintaining its array of goals. it is actually stunning to see this game showing as available now 2 days after its release, but then i am pretty shocked to find i think this game is actually a better one than the just okay enslaved or castlevania, which i so looked forward to. sometimes, just when you are finally sure graphics are nearly everything, well, sometimes, rarely, amazingly, they aren't! really, check this thing out, it's a charming surprise.
