It's been too long since we ran a reader review, but don't worry I haven't forgotten about you guys! We have a bunch in stock, and I'll be dropping more over the next couple of weeks.

First up is Benjamin Golightly, with his review of Super Scribblenauts. I enjoyed the first game, but somehow found it difficult to muster up any interest for the sequel.

Inspired by the never-discouraged mailman, the true professional permits no act of nature, chance or evil to interfere with his coverage of a new video game. But what fun could you have with Super Scribblenauts just 10 minutes after your wedding ring disappeared?


It's tough to beat the wow factor of the dizzying dictionary of usable words in last year's Scribblenauts for the DS. This year's followup: Super Scribblenauts, doesn't try to outdo that as much as perfect other aspects of the game.
