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.

oshit adjectives

Maybe the controls will be better?
I SERIOUSLY hope so. The controls in the first one were TERRIBILE.

The adjectives in the first one were great to cheat in the challenges

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.

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?)

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.

I've got more info from Jeremiah Slackza, who made the first game.
Jeremiah Slackza said:
-Developed by 5TH Cell.
-DS Only.
-Out this Fall.
-Yes, D-pad controls for Maxwell are in along with significantly improved stylus controls and camera is now fixed.
-Big updates to physics (it's still DS, but it's vastly improved).
-Levels are revamped completely improved (no more solving every level with rope/unicorn/death/etc), levels are deeper in content.
-The 10,000 words refers to adjectives, we didn't add 10,000 new objects, we put in 10,000 new adjectives (we put in some new words too).
-You can string adjectives together.
