    Hmm, I'll be interested to see how they implement the adjectives. The first game was a decent one but it was a bit limited.

    The adjectives in the first one were great to cheat in the challenges [​IMG]

    Well, at least the DS games seem to have pretty good scores (all above 7 except for one) though I'm not saying we should trust these scores anyway..

    Scribblenauts 2 eh? Looking forward to see what they've done to make it better!

    Scribblenauts 2 is great news. The first one was good but wasn't without problems. Hopefully this can right the wrongs of the first one (namely including D-Pad movement and maybe a larger vocabulary).

    Also, it's not surprising. Scribblenauts already sold over a million copies and is hailed as a huge success for the DS and an even larger success for a third party.

    Played the first one, a bit too limited, hoping this one will be much better [​IMG]

    I hope they fix the controls and physics with this one.

    Also, HGSS got a 9.5. Not surprising.

    Scribblenauts 2 huh?
    I'll give it a chance, maybe it'll be what Scribblenauts should have been from the start!

    Also, 9.5 for Heart Gold/Soul Silver? Oh my. But then again this is an official magazine.
    I'm also interested in what they said about Sonic Classic Collection DS, I mean, these are the classic games, so why would they mark it down to 7.0? (Could it be the numerous problems I have with it myself, like the removed cheats?)

    Uh, exactly.
    Future US wouldn't be employed by Nintendo if they didn't write favourably about their games now, would they?

    I'd take Nintendo Power's reviews with a grain of salt. They'd be more than happy to throw other big titles under the bus and boost the reviews of Nintendo-published titles. I wouldn't give HGSS a 9.5 (I gave it a 9/10 actually). I usually rely on more independent review sites for reviews.

    I gave it an 8.5. I loved it, but like all other Pokemon games, it could have done a lot more to enhance the formula.

    Scribblenauts needs the button controls. Otherwise it's a good game.

    When I read the title of this all I saw was the Nauts, 2, and announced so I naturally assumed it was my long overdue Psychonauts sequel.

    I just died a little inside...

    I've got more info from Jeremiah Slackza, who made the first game.
