Not sure what any of this stuff means? Head on over to our E3 hub for all the deets.

The Rundown

Max and a friend start arguing about who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman. It’s a familiar argument to anyone who has ever spent time standing around the counter at a comic book store (the answer, by the way, is Superman unless Batman cheats and brings Kryptonite).

Somehow Max finds himself transported into the DC Universe where he must collect familiar Starites in order to open a path home. To do so he will travel through many varied locations from the comics, like Gotham City, Metropolis, Atlantis and more, and call upon the huge cast of DC Comics to help him solve puzzles and beat villains.

The Verdict

The first thing I did when getting my hands on Scribblenauts Unmasked was to search the character library for some very obscure residents of the Universe. Brother Power the Geek? Check. The Creeper? Check. Sugar and Spike? Yep, they’re in there too. Don’t know who all of those characters are? Well then you will be happy to know there are dozens of variants of all the biggest characters too. Superman from the first appearance to the Otherworld’s Red Son; Batman from classic Kane to Miller’s Dark Knight. It’s insane!

Yes, you can even conjure Golden Age and Silver Age Green Lanterns and proceed to beat them both with a #2 pencil (look it up if you don’t know what I’m talking about).

All of this is in addition to the already enormous dictionary of nouns and adjectives available from previous Scribblenauts games. Have a fire? Put a rain cloud over it or use Superman’s super-breath to blow it out, it’s your choice.

At first glance, putting the DC characters in Scribblenauts Unmasked might seem like an unnecessary addition to an already great franchise. But once you see what these characters can do, along with the fun of calling on them and testing their abilities, and you’ll be hooked.

Marc Camron somehow survived E3. The crowds were big, the games were loud and somehow he managed to get a sunburn on the top of his big, bald melon. Yet, despite all of this, he had a blast, seeing people he only sees once a year, playing all of the new games, and staying up way past his bedtime. Next year he might even have a beer.
