It's not that Scribblenauts Unlimited is a bad game, it's just made for a younger audiance. I mean really young. Like, 6-year-olds. In many instances with younger targeted games, there is some crossover appeal built in for older people who may be playing, but that really isn't the case with this game, I feel.
The game mechanics are fairly simple: to manipulate the world, click the appropriate object and type a noun or adjective. Tweak the world to achieve goals that are weirdly, annoyingly hard to find. Seriously, the hardest part of this game was finding all the objectives I needed to complete that section of the map. I wasn't able to complete many achievments because some shards are just not there.
Though the game touts a 'you can do anything' element, there really isn't much point in playing around. The people and creatures don't really act on their own, they just react to you placing or manipulating other objects. Amusing for a bit, but hardly engaging in a way that would leave an impression and make you want to experiment further.
I might have enjoyed this more when I wan younger, but to my older self it feels very limited. The story mode is a tedious collection quest that I couldn't finish despite my efforts. Yes, you can add your own splash of creativity, but it's mostly for your own personal amusement, as the game reacts too simplisticly to truly reward your creativity.
