Critic Reviews for Scribblenauts Showdown
Scribblenauts Showdown is a fun game you can pick and and play at any time, but you may feel the novelty wear off without friends to play with. Despite this, Scribblenauts Showdown offers some great mini-games and game modes. It feels different to party games we've seen in recent times, but it's also pleasantly familiar.
Despite a quite brillaint look, the 27 minigames designed by Shiver Entertainment are meaningful and fun only for a couple of nights with friends. Unfortunately, they become soon a clumsy attempt to recycle well know mechanics in very superficial way.

Scribblenauts Showdown is an agreeable party game that applies the playful vocabulary-stretching gameplay well enough to entertain you and some friends for a while. Unfortunately, the numerous minigames are all pretty shallow, the Showdown mode can grow tiresome, and the appeal of the Sandbox levels only lasts for so long. This will certainly make for an amusing evening with family and friends, but it's not likely to be a title you'll come back to more than a couple of times.
Your enjoyment of Scribblenauts Showdown will probably depend on where you're coming from. Long-time fans of the franchise will likely be disappointed by a watered-down entry that doesn't come close to capturing the creative spirit of the original games. In fact, it doesn't even bother. On the other hand, newcomers with no expectations should appreciate Showdown as a colourful, cute, low-effort party game that's more diverse than most.
